I *totally* agree. An active, assertive approach is needed. I recently checked the cvs for DUN prefs, and noticed it needed some work (note I am also a student learning c++ & the BeAPI). So, I fixed it up a tad and sent the results to the author of the app. He has gladly accepted the code and we'll work together in the future. I thought I may just mention this to inspire others. Even if you submit the *smallest* bit of help, that opens the door to more coding. Every little bit helps, every passive moment does not ;) Maybe this should be in the FAQ? :) -misza > > I'm supposed to have been on the Preferences Team, and due to lack > > of > > spare > > time, mainly because of college, my task was assigned to others.
