No, dude, it's just the exact same as README-Users.m4, just
translated. It should be handled just the same.

Sure, I think so. Just fudge around int he top-level Makefile.
Are the kernels uploaded for Potato yet?

You are wanting to make Mac install disks for 2.2.10 as well as
2.2.16? This makes my heart sink. Is that really necessary?

Christian, you should feel free to burn and release point versions for
Mac at any time. Just tag/dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us/debsign then
upload it. It's just a source upload rather than just a binary
Thus we could have 2.2.18 on Tuesday (i386) then 2.2.19 on Friday
(m68k) or whatever, it doesn't matter, integers are cheap and
plentiful. I don't believe in making all ports wait for all other
