Arghh, I could bite my lip for this one (is this correct english ?)
Of course I did not have the least intention to blame anyone for
having bugs, version problems or whatsoever in his/her externals.

The question I wanted to ask really (also, I have to admit, in the light
of the demudi beta release in november).

Who of the external developers are planning to put their code into CVS,

Thanks for listening
