Subject Re: Patch Audit
Date Tue, 07 Aug 2001 07:58:07 GMT
Obviously, as I submitted the additional PVCS tasks I'm somewhat biased, 
but I do think there's a good case for accepting improvements/additions 
to tasks that were not in the 1.3 release at this point. This probably 
applied more to optional tasks than to the core tasks.

In the case of the PVCS task, it's a fairly major change, and I'd 
probably have to do things differently if the original task gets into a 
release and builds up a user base - it's easier to make more fundemental 
changes at this point. Not that I wouldn't welcome some feedback before 
it goes in.
