I must admit that Mark gets the credit for pushing me on this privately

It was a pleasure, litterarely.

While I welcome your enthusiasm, I'd suggest we keep the focus and make
small steps.

Suggestions will come, don't worry :)

That's why I wanted commit access for you: so you fix your own "bug"
without "bugging" me. I just love English sometimes :)

For now, I'd suggest you to look into the

your Mac).
