[arch-projects] Netcfg news

There are several forks of the netcfg repository floating around.
(Mine is over here: https://github.com/joukewitteveen/netcfg ). I
noted that yours is missing quite some of Remy's commits. You could
try to merge either my repo, or remy's:
http://projects.archlinux.org/users/remy/netcfg.git/ ). Mine is ahead
by a few commits.

I must say I do not see the benefits of having two bugtracking
systems. Why not use the existing one of Arch? Also, you did not copy
all bugs. https://bugs.archlinux.org/?project=1&string=netcfg shows 25
in total.
