Takis, Michael offered  you to create a branch on ffmeg svn
repository. If you do that, your incremental changes will be public
(and hopefully much easier to review), and everyone with svn write
privileges may help you.

I do understand that you would rather have your changes merged right
away, but well... better have thing get forward than blocked.

BTW, if you are able to pull all your change sets from your git
repository, so that we can have the full changes of your branch, I
think it would be very valuable.

An association of men who will not quarrel with one another is a thing
which has never yet existed, from the greatest confederacy of nations
down to a town meeting or a vestry.
