Hi Wookey, thanks a lot for your comments.

It is an error. It should be fixed in the updated archive on the server.

I see that the whitespace patch which fixed up a load of inconsistent

I would like to fix it in the next release, together with all compiler

Again errors. With exception of contents.txt - it is regenerated every
time, but I am not sure, whether it can be removed.

I will update this in the next release.

I believe, this error is already fixed. Are you able to reproduce it with
current version of therion?

This needs to be done.

* 2 hunks of fix-compiler-warnings.patch was applied, but not the other 19.

No reason for that, will try to do it in the near future.

The remaining patches/hunks are debian-specific

Thanks again, S.
