Hi Diane,

I think that it would be good to adopt your changes in Debian.  In addition,
since we prefer to avoid deviationg from the upstream source, could you post
your patch to the Samtools tracker in SourceForge ?  Also, there are a few
packages using the static libbam in Debian (the command 'build-rdeps' from the
devscripts package will tell you.  To enjoy the full benefit of your work, it
would be good to patch them as well.  But since I am not a C programmer, I can
not help there.  If you have time it would be great, otherwise, let's file
bugs in order to remember.

(PS: please let me know if it is useless to CC you in addition to answering
to the list)

Have a nice week-end,
