If I made any Debian assumptions in Gnopher, please tell me. (But I guess
you are referring to the lack of apt-get and the like?) Anyway, I'm
impressed that you're willing to go through so much pain to install my li'l

I'm glad to hear (from you, but also from other sources) that installation
eventually worked out and that it's running, and all (whoa, do I sound like
a professional or what? :-)

Currently not available through both, at least for me (connection refused).
Which kindly reminds me that Gnopher currently doesn't handle unavailable
severs correctly %)
Acnyway, I'd love to see your stuff so I'd appreciate it if you could
resolve this problem. BTW, be sure to make a statement on a) licencing in
general and b) if this theme may be part of the Gnopher distro and web
site. It's not like I hire lawyers or so, it's just that I don't ever want
to do that in the first place :-)

I don't completely follow the idea, and I didn't follow the discussion
either, sorry. Is this documented? And is it useful considering the fact
that other servers don't (have to) do it as well? No need to re-start the
whole thread, just give me the conclusions :-)
