Well when i redid the udev stuff ages ago, I had to let it langish
because people told me to. And since CVS can't do offline diffs, I
don't even know if I have changes in places. I'm sorry my workflow
isn't quite like yours and that I sometimes like to view history
through command line tools.

I haven't had the chance to do a full checkout and pull the attached
patch over and apply it to SVN, but maybe I'll get a chance sometime.

The link from the front page: http://archlinux.org/cvs/

I'm normally a fan of progress and change, but I have to disagree with
your tone in this email and how you've managed to move all wrongs to
Thomas and I. Makes my work feel wanted around here.
