That would be nice. The debian package really needs the latest
ax25 utilities. I will stay away from these until it is sorted out
who is going to work on this.

You could of course just release the ax25 utilities and not worry
about scc, pi or baycom cards. This will only slow down development.
Maybe it is all a bit too complex to try and incorporate everything.
