I will not release the full Lynx Trace file as it cannot be anonymized
and reveal too much about me and my habits. But I will still look
inside for keywords like "Error" or "TODO" inside it.

Is there any other keyword of interest to track in the full Lynx Trace file ?

Thank you very much. I will setup this in the near future.

Gentoo Linux does not handle _dev versions :-(

Some maintainer replaced _dev by _pre, back in 2009, he should have
better taken _alpha (or _beta), now it is too late.

The version you plan to name 2.8.8pre.1 cannot be called 2.8.8_pre1 in
Gentoo Linux (because is would be marked older than 2.8.8_pre15).

Do you mind if I ask gentoo to call 2.8.8_rc_beta16 and 2.8.8_rc_pre1
the versions that you plan to name 2.8.8dev.16 and 2.8.8pre.1 ? They
would be marked newer than 2.8.8_pre15, and future version 2.8.8 will
be marked older than 2.8.8_rc_pre1.

Thank you again for your commitment !
