This would work well for me, but I suspect that it's extra effort given that magnum already has an updated tree. I am really not sure. I need to be able to review those patches somehow before I sign the new jumbo patch and tarball, and a fully updated tree is not the easiest thing to review. BTW, for the icc-generated assembly files, I need PGP signatures from magnum I guess. I sort of reviewed the one that got into -jumbo-8, but it was time-consuming and unreliable. I mean, the wiki server might get compromised, which would let an intruder modify a previously uploaded file without me detecting that. So I have to be double-checking those patches for lack of backdoors. ...Yes, this could be another reason to switch to git. Back to the original topic, I think it could also make sense to generate a 1.7.8-jumbo-9 - to have it in case we need to debug some issue later and to move most of my reviews to this stage, without anyone having to update the existing individual patches for 1.7.9. Then update that entire patch for 1.7.9. Alexander
