Hi, and thanks a lot for your quick reply.

Are there any plans to migrate towards a public repository ?
To me, this would make it easier for potential contributors to get thee
latest development version and then submit patches against it.

Since there already seems to be a cvs repository available on savannah
for lynx, what would you think about taking advantage of it and
using it ?

And by the way: although (I think!) I am subscribed to the list, I only
get your messages because you are sending them also to me personnaly, it
seems the copy that is sent to the list does not reach me, whereas I
receive correctly the messages I am sending to the list. Any idea bout
what may happen ?

Many thanks in advance for your replies,
