That's what the ChangeLog says :) Please thank him for merging this.

First suggestion: you would *really* want to remove all that unnecessary
comments from skel :) There are for skel and for skel only - ebuilds
that are to be committed to CVS have only a minimal amount of comments.
In fact the simple ones (and aterm is relatively simple) usually require
virtually no comments at all.

Unfortunately, the compilation didn't work for me:

main.c: In function `Create_Windows':
main.c:447: error: `_XA_MwmAtom' undeclared (first use in this function)
main.c:447: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
main.c:447: error: for each function it appears in.)
main.c: In function `main':
main.c:1781: error: `_XA_MwmAtom' undeclared (first use in this
make[1]: *** [main.o] B=C5=82=C4=85d 1

I grepped my /usr/include for _XA_MwmAtom - no luck. Any ideas what
could be wrong? Perhaps a missing dependency or smth?

BTW, you might want to let Sasha know about some bugs in aterm that I
was unable to solve during the period I have been maintaining aterm in
Gentoo. To get a list of them one just does have to go bugs.gentoo.org
and search for open bugs with aterm in summary. There are not many of
them, but there are some..

Ah, and one more thing. It seems there is a patch for aterm that adds
support for Japan characters, and that there is another patch that adds
support for Big5 chars, or something like that. There is a bug about it
on bugs.gentoo.org. It's currently assigned to cjk@gentoo.org. It might
be a good idea to somehow integrate these patches into mainstream aterm.=20
I know virtually nothing about these Chinese charsets, but I'm sure the
CJK folks in Gentoo would be willing to help if that would mean they
wouldn't have to take care of the patches at the ebuild level :)

Live long and prosper.
