Thanks for the tip, but I'm not actually good at PR and lacking time for that ;-o I better concetrate on talking directly to responsible people. For example, when posting my changes to upstream, I point them to the git repo/ref instead of text-based patches and add some notes about the oss-qm project.

My ideology that distro people (eg. from Gentoo) not just use it (as dumb downstream), but instead actively take part in it. cu -- ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Enrico Weigelt, metux IT service -- phone: +49 36207 519931 email: weigelt@×××××.de mobile: +49 151 27565287 icq: 210169427 skype: nekrad666 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Embedded-Linux / Portierung / Opensource-QM / Verteilte Systeme ----------------------------------------------------------------------
