Hi Jonathan,

Basically it consists in always making sure that our modified branch stays 
consistent with the changes made upstream.

I'm told that is in a few steps basically, just 1.) pull the source 
somehow, 2.) install the build depends, 3.) 'sed' the thing, to replace the 
colors 4.) run 'make' in its top directory.

I understand it can be challenging and intimidating to answer to the list, 
but i would prefer if you asked via that chanel in the future. It doesn't 
bother me that you adress me in private, on the contrary: i feel honored. 
What i'm thinking is that often times the group has better answers than me 
alone and other devels night benefit from your questions and the answers it 
generates :) Its just a matter of transparency: motivation is contagious ;)

have nice sunday!
