Hi there,

It's me again :-) I just have some questions about committing on
Sourceforge. Is there any convention into messages ? May we commit as much
as we want ? Are there some (strict) limitations ? Probably I'll only commit
files for my plugin but...

Thanks & regards,

ps. I can now compile using the automated build tool :-) great !!!
