Cool! I was about to ask you to send the conffile patches for review to
the list when I noticed you already did more than one year ago, I had
completely forgotten. :/ I'll be doing the review during this month, but
first I want to take care of some items from my TODO list.
I want to apologize though, for what might have seemed me stone walling
you on this. I lost a great deal of motivation last year due to Debian
itself and due to work, and one consequence was that I dropped the ball
on the conffile stuff (among other things), I've had it (and countless
of other items) in mind as something to be done, but that's not always
