Bill and Bernhard,

well, let´s start again. After discussion with Bruce I will
take care for your patches now. To distribute the workload
I suggest that we stay in contact about including your patches
into the 5.0 code. I keep the line to Baylor then. Would that be o.k 
with you?

Generally speaking:

If you (the GRASS community) have patches, please send them to

For our small team it is rather time consuming to search for patches 
on the net ourselves. Therefore we kindly request you to upload
files to the GRASS ftp-Server. Please send an announce email as well.
We urgently need more support in GRASS development and programming.
Migrating all the 4.2.1 modules to 5.0 data structures is quite a 
big job... Beside the (voluntary) work on GRASS we have to work on
projects etc. Therefore support is very welcome.

Thank you very much
