> changes if necessary, commit those, then push.
I would like to come up with a way for contributors (and,
particularly, CPWs) to send patches conveniently via monotone -- I've
been kicking some ideas around in my head, hopefully I'll get
something written up soon.
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils]. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
