Re: News about unixcw?

Hi Kamil,

Thanks for the email, and your interest in Unixcw.

I haven't updated the package for a while now, and don't really expect to do anything to it in the way of improvement in the foreseeable future.  I know that Kamal has created a few patches for it to help to keep it up to date with current Linux releases, and I'm very grateful to him for doing this.  I guess the program is sort-of looking for a new owner at present, and if somebody wanted to take it over I'd be fine with that.

Best regards,

Subject: News about unixcw?

Hi Simon,

Recently I've started using cwcp program from unixcw package to learn Morse code. I find it very useful, but I have also noticed that the program has some problems. Some of them have been addressed by patches created by Kamal Mostafa (https://launchpad.net/~kamalmostafa/+archive/unixcw-fixes). I have implemented some changes in my local copy of cwlib myself as well.

I would like to ask you whether you still actively maintain this package, and if you accept any patches or other kind of help with the package.

I'm adding in CC some people who may be interested in any news about the package.

Have a nice day!

Best regards,
Kamil Ignacak
