It is really difficult for me to judge what is appropriate and what is
not w.r.t. handling the Makefiles and specificities of this environment.
When I get conflicting opinions I can hardly do anything better than
keeping the status quo, it's not good. I would also like to see prepackaged
libraries and binaries for libxml and libxslt. Ideally the maintainer
should also use CVS to check things regulary before releases.

  Now I wish I can find someone. I must admit I got really pissed when
I got this feedback "how come the OS with 90% of the deployment has releases
that don't compile ?", because I have yet to see someone stepping in
to do this on the long term.

  I can't and won't do this. It can be Igor, or someone else but I would
like a public statement like "I will maintain the libxml/libxslt Windows
port for the next year" or something similar. Then that maintainer will
have authority for this port. I expect this will concern only the MSC
chain, cygwin or mingwin seems easier to accomodate.

  I'm ready to put a link to whoever maintains the port, or make his
life easier in general when dealing with the libraries.
