Re: Hello mc Maintainers! :)

I removed Egmond from Uhulinux, he doesn't work anymore for uhulinux 
according a mail I recived right after sending my previous one.

Yes, I hope so.

I am most familiar with svn and cvs, too but there are some things I really 
miss in svn ... I dislike the idea of branching there.  git is quite new 
for me, too, but as I heard from different people it should be exactly 
what is needed here.

I've got a comment on a blogpost from another Debian Developer. This site 
he mentioned on my Discussion page is worth to have a look on.

Yes, indeed. I've cc'ed it. Is everybody here subscribed to this list? If 
yes we can use this list for a first start to discuss everything.
