I tried to find the patches on the site specified in the README, but had no
success. At this point, I will simply move on to version 1.06 (which already
has a couple of bug fixes reported, but apparently, no official patches.)

I don't even recall what prompted this.

I have created a stub uucpconfig program, which is called from the postinst
script. The actual program still needs to be written. More on this in a

Not needed. The /etc/group file comes with this set. Perhaps, in the
absence of the uucp package, this should not be set up by default.
If you change this aspect of the /etc/group file, please point this out to
me so that I can change uucp to match.
