I was just thinking the same the other day - all of these patches are getting a bit unmanageable now. For 1.7.6 we have jumbo 12 and a further 3 patches on top and a manual hack to add hmailserver support as it won't patch cleanly anymore. Plus, if you want to use omp-des-7 we lose a massive amount of functionality and have to apply at least one patch that is already part of the jumbo's. If we moved to git it would at least [probably] make merging changes back into the trunk a bit easier - we wouldn't have to apply patches in a specific order and wouldn't have to develop patches for a specific version that won't work on any other version. Here's dreaming of a 1.7.7 with jumbo13+ompdes7 merged together ;-) Simon.
