Rafael, Jeremi, Lukas -

Thank you for starting to quote inline.  A further improvement could be
to attribute your quotes, like your MUA probably does for you - just let
it do that. ;-)

Thanks.  Can you please add proper wiki formatting to this page, and
also include its content (without wiki formatting) as doc/CGMINER in
your JtR tree?

Jeremi - would you help test Rafael's JtR/cgminer integration?

In addition to the info request (in the other message):

You don't have to make ../run/cgminer depend on ../run/john - instead,
you can simply add ../run/cgminer to the end of PROJ.

As you're probably aware, it is better to separate these commands with
"&&" rather than ";" - e.g., it'd be pointless to run "./configure" if
"cd cgminer" has failed.

This is OK for now.

Lukas - can you take a look, please?

Rafael - as you can see, your MUA did quote the entire message for you,
and all you needed to do was to edit this portion removing the pieces
you did not want to quote (the ones not directly relevant to your reply)
and insert your replies inbetween the quoted pieces.  What you actually
did instead was apparently to copy-paste the individual quoted pieces
higher into your new message. %-)

Thanks,

Alexander
