! Hi.
!     I noticed that in the official AfterStep ftp site, there are patches named
! under 1.6.0-xxxx... and 1.7.0-xxxxx.... The ones named 1.6.0-... should patch
! version 1.6.0. What about the other ones?

	First off, 1.7.0 is a development tree.  Yes I know it doesn't
have "pre" or "alpha" or "beta" in it, but it is under the devel/
directory on the ftp.  This implies that it is a development version,
which being a development version, it might not compile, might not run,
might bring your X crashing to a screeching halt, might cause the NSA (or
similar foreign body) to come to your house and confiscate your computer
for throwing geosynchronous government satellites out of orbit! :)

	Secondly, if you still choose to use version 1.7.0; be warned -
none of your questions will be answered here, no-one will help you recover
your trashed harddrive, and no-one will sympathise with you because you
didn't backup you config files. :)

	This is of course all subject to change and only valid at the time
of this mail. :)
