They are clones from


I'm trying Takashi's other repos, now but the sound-2.6 clone is taking
about 2h and counting....

Also Jaroslav, are you the list admin? I've always send mails to this
list via gmane, but as reply-all is the etiquette, I want to make sure
I'm registered and such for posting. But the mailman admin page wont let
me subscribe or send me password reminders (and thus wont let me
unsubscribe to resubscribe either :s) Not sure how to deal with the
chicken and egg problem (other than changing my email address which I'll
probably do at some point soon for other reasons anyway).
