Ok, please add me to the cvs with writing permission, if you didn't already
so. I'm not sure how much time I need to get some stuff ready... I'm feeling
sorry about it, but university is putting a lot of pressure on me, and my
packages are not in a good shape yet. My priority is packages first, then

No, this is not the reason. I can use whatever format I like, and can do a
bit magic with sed to get it converted to docreg. Don't worry about me. I
don't have real time at the moment, what is the real reason. I feel also
sorry about Christians decision, which is unrelated to my sloppiness, but is
affecting my overall motivation a bit...

Ok, we have some time, I would think. It seems that hamm will not be
released until end of May, maybe even later... Brians list of critical bugs
is very long...

Thank you for your work, Adam. Stay tuned!
