OK, thanks, that's good to know.

Since you mentioned it:

I *already* turned  libfm patches from Julien's Ubuntu package of
libfm into a git repo for you, six commits, and posted about doing 
that to this list.  All that was left for you to do was to cherrypick
which ones you want to include in the upstream sources:


As far as I can see, *none* of them have been included so far!  Either I did
something wrong, or else you don't really want those patches?  Help me
understand what I have to do so you will accept the commits I made for you from
Ubuntu patches, please.

I'm playing with writing a script to grab the libfm git head and
Julien's package and automatically create a new package based on the
combination of the two.  It doesn't quite work yet... if it does, I'll
try to do the same for pcmanfm, and then we can create test packages for
pcmanfm testers much more easily :)
