That concerns me a lot. I think that both Gaby and Waldek have done
an enormous amount of really important work on the Axiom build system
and this should continue. But for other axiom developers and axiom
users to really benefit from *both* of these efforts, I think we need
to merge the results at the current stage of development into a new
Axiom Silver distribution that builds on as many systems as possible
and which includes critical fixes to HyperDoc and some very important
fixes to Axiom's algebra.

What can I do to encourage you (Waldek and Gaby) to devote some
time to such a merge?

I will be glad to do that when/if I can.
