Scott, can you officially confirm this? I > would suggest a follow-up to your initial mail on debian-devel... It looks a lot more sane now but previously patches were split out into packaging differences, upstream differences, and branding differences (where possible). This was a lot more useful than the current situation which seems to just have one large diff again. Not to say that making this large diff available /isn't/ useful just that if the old code could be resurrected to split it out further more people might take it on. -- ,--huggie-at-earth-dot-li--------stuff-thing-stuff----------DF5CE2B4--. _| "Cerulean is a gentle breeze..." - Pusher |_ | | `- http://www.earth.li/~huggie/ - http://www.blackcatnetworks.co.uk/ -'
