I see nobody chimed in; I would be willing to contribute to the best of
my abilities.

This is the solution recently adopted by FVWM. I don't know how well it
works from the point of vue of a contributor (I didn't contributed), but
nobody complained on the mailing list so far.

An other advantage of this setup is that people are able to "$DVCS
checkout", use $EDITOR to make changes, and "$DVCS checkin" their work
instead of being constrained in their browser. The contributor's guide
from FVWMwiki : <http://fvwmwiki.xteddy.org/anonymouscheckout/>.

Beerware is such a stoopid license. Switch to the WTFPL!


Whatever. It's fine by me.

What about my patch for ip6 aliases ? :-)
