Yes, sorry. I've read more of the Four Days thread now so from now on
I'll try to add more detail to my RFS messages. Perhaps the maintainer
of the mdn website could add some comments encouraging sponsees to try
to expand more on the template.

Usually George Danchev uploads roxterm, but I think he prefers to read
my RFSs here than to get private requests.

I didn't think I was that quick. But when I read Ubuntu were planning a
10/10/10 release instead of waiting until the end of the month I thought
I'd better get on top of it quick even if it meant installing Maverick
beta somewhere, because I don't want people to get a bad impression of
roxterm from such a serious bug on one of the most popular distros.
