BL> Tkman needs a special patch in Tk. I will integrate that as it has been

BL> I will try to make ical, postgresql, pgaccess, tkinfo, tkirc and
BL> probably a few other things I use to work with the updated Tcl/Tk. I may
BL> even check other packages and send-pr trivial changes.
BL> But I am definitely not interested in doing all this work (esp. for
BL> packages I am not using myself) without a very good chance that the
BL> packages make it into pkgsrc. So, what is needed to get the send-pr'ed
BL> changes committed? What would serve as show stopper?
BL> Thanks in advance for opinions.
BL> Bye, Bjoern
