People who crack free software sites suck. Yeah, yeah, we're so impressed that you can take advantage of friendly people who are trying to help you; that really shows your chops. Gee, you're so l33t! Assholes.

I've gotten quite a bit done on GNU make this week. I want to try to get a few more things done but if I don't, no big deal. I'm off on vacation starting Sunday morning and I will have a pretest release out before I go. Some neat new things in there.

Why is it always that the week before you go on vacation you have to work four times as hard? Annoying.

chipx86, I don't understand your issues with gettext. Why do you want backward-compatibility with 0.10.x? This seems not very useful, as that version was really broken. Some of the new features in gettext are really excellent: personally I've removed all gettext code from my source tree and now I use the external mode. This is really nice. The next version of gettext comes with a new tool, autopoint, which does what you want: it does not modify ChangeLog, etc. Unfortunately it's been stuck in beta limbo for a couple of months now; I've been using the pretest which has a small bug (easy to work around though).
