> Now do I have packages in the AUR ? Yes of course I do have them

> Currently I'm maintaining 14 packages, listed below:
> desktop-flickr-organizer
> f-spot-svn
> gnome-main-menu-svn
> kdestyle-serenity
> kmp
> ksquirrel
> ksquirrel-libs
> nautilus-image-converter
> picasa
> pyneighborhood
> ristretto
> ttf-aquafont
> ttf-inconsolata
> usp2

It seems sometimes such messages are unreplied for quite some time...
Your nick was pretty noticeable for me in times when I was visiting
forums very often. :-)
Your packages in AUR are OK, though I have some suggestions, which
I've sent to you in private mail.
In fact, I've added 2 of your packages to my "grab them sometime" list
some time ago. :-P
Oh, BTW, don't we already have someone studiying Aerospace
engineering? /me looks at James ;-)

I'm sponsoring Ronald on his way to become a TU.
This starts a standard discussion period.
