My pleasure!  Thanks for creating git-annex :).

This is really useful.  I probably should have looked at the Debian
package a little more closely.  I got the impression that Hackage was
the main source for git-annex, and went straight from there to Cabal.

Thanks for the recommendation.  Both WebDAV and S3 should be easy enough
to add to the package.  The web client and the Android stuff probably
not so much.

Thanks a million for your help here. I will put together some patches
soon to fix the manuals using the Makefile, and I will add S3 and
