Re: splitted libgpm and gpmd, 9p, ...

Well, splitting it does not help me very much, as both code is developed
together. But as usual, I do not care what distributors do, as long as
it works for them and does not break the package.

Must confess that I personally would prefer git over svn, so merging
stuff back would be easier (and no, I do not consider git-svn as
something useful, if one mainly uses git, because merges break in svn
and get rebased).

Very nice to see other people hacking on gpm und I'll look forward
to your results. Just post from time to time to the list, if you
have news.

Perhaps you can explain why 9P could be interesting for people and
how to use it -> so maybe you get more hands / eyes on that idea.



Think about Free and Open Source Software (FOSS).
