Sure, I'd be thankful for any help. So, if you have any suggestions, I'd
be happy to hear them :-)

Well, on his last post on http://parcellite.sf.net/ the original
programmer said that he'd encourage people to _fork_ the program, I
didn't see him mentioning that he would want to hand over the project,
that is why I never even thought about this possibility.
Of course I have mailed him before making my first release and asked him
if he was ok with the fact that I forked the program and in his reply he
also didn't mention anything about taking over parcellite, so like I
said, I didn't think about this possibility. If you want, I could mail
him again asking if he'd be interested to do that, but tbqh I find the
name ClipIt better too, probably because I came up with it... :-D

No problem. I'd like to thank you very much for taking your time to
reply and help out.

P.S. The package isn't up-to-date with upstream right now. I'll update
it to the latest upstream release 1.3.3 tomorrow, so you might want to
wait until that update to check it out.

Best regards,
Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
