might i try to write your thesis instead ? :))
well, some patches affect mailman libs, not only scripts, so it's a bit of
a mess to patch things directly in the runtime tree. would it be possible
to have the package sources directly on sarai3 and patch there ? i know
sarai3 will be a production box, yet we patch things often enougth...
i don't know if this is safe for our configs and lists to do things that
way, but i guess that would save us some stress.
for what i know, the X-Archive-Id patch can be thrown to dpatch without
too much fuss; there's one tiny conflict with another debian patch, but
it's just on a single line of code. dunno for other patches, where are
they btw ?
anyway, that's brilliant to have another toaster to play with! stef,
thanks a bunch!
and pabs, don't even dream we'll leave you alone to write your thesis!
