Hi Jean-Louis,

sorry if you feel I'm answering some of the questions you asked

No problem!

I think that's fine. You are already taking an active part in
improving libssh2 by pointing out what you consider to be issues and
what would be better for you, and all your contributions are
important and very welcome!

I completely agree that these are some areas where libssh2 can be

You are already more familiar with the code than I am. So far all I
have really done is make a lot of noise on the mailing list.

For me, one great thing about freedom software is that I can decide
how much and what kind of effort I put into something, and noone can
complain, because I am giving my time away, at no cost, without many

That said, I think it's better to send code every two weeks than to

is discussionn, I think that it is better than not having you
contribute at all - IMHO!
