Newbie question: Should I get some notice on my problem reports
(pkg/49079 and pkg/49080) when something is done to integrate fixes? I
don't have the picture yet on reaction times to expect, how much
humanpower is available at all, etc.

There will be more problem reports in the future as I push the patches
I do to sort things out on my site. Of course I'd like the stuff to
sometime turn up in the official pkgsrc. I'm quite proud of myself that
I just was brave enough to fix up geography/gdal-lib with HDF4 and bump
the version 1.11.0, being successful at that, too;-)

Well, actually I'm more proud of finally having beat wxGTK30 into
submission to build on this SLES 11.3 box. That might be more
interesting for the general public as I gather wxGTK30 might turn up in
a release for the first time soon. Would someone be interested in the
changes to that right now (hint: I had to ditch the libtool patch to
make it work at all)?

Alrighty then,
