Hello Gary,

Patches are always welcome. However, applying them is a question of manpower.
It's not just invoking patch, but I have to see if the patch follows the
coding convention and if it doesn't break something else.

As I've said in other postings, my role regarding libwww is to act
as W3C contact, helping open up CVS access to our base, helping prepare
releases, updating pages, etc.

I also help applying patches, as I'm a libwww user myself (from Amaya).
However, my main activity at W3C isn't libwww. If I'm busy with other
tasks, I can't apply the patches that have been submitted.

In a nutshell, it's a question of manpower. If there are other volunteers
willing to help, they're welcome. libwww belongs to its user and it's up
to us to make it live.

This having been said, I'm working now on your January patches :)

Cheers,

-Jose
