mjg59: Thanks, that's the closest answer I was hoping, now I'm even more poised to play with these things. :) I've resisted impulse-buying until now. I'm not sure how long can I hold back..

May there be fun in everything..

Apparently raph captured the moment I was the last joined advogator. Everytime google puts up this page, I'm amazed at this timing :) Google finally believes that romfs is here. It took them about a month, and in the meantime, it sometimes mystically appeared as having content, sometimes as a default sourceforge page.

I'm also not particularly fond of "funny" release names, the fun wears out in nanoseconds.. There's also the thing with these newfound prereleases, release candidates, patch levels, builds.. Sometimes they have its place, but why is it so hard to give a release a version number? Why should Subversion 0.9 be called subversion-r1302.tar.gz? How could a dhcp-3.0rc8pl2.tar.gz, or a imirc-1.5-rc7.2.tar.gz happen at all? It's at least the same fun as Danish code names.. Man, I've never learnt English either, but I try to use it (hint to yosi :). And how about these myprogram.tar.gz, without any version marking? I'd be really glad if freshmeat didn't allow to post links to files like these (including myprogram-latest.tar.bz2, myprogram-current.tgz). Why would I want to inspect timestamps three days later to decide which was supposed to be the really latest? Call me grumpy, I'm done :)
