I am continuing to maintain the file command. I welcome your help,
but to make my life easier I'd like to request the following:
- Don't change the version numbers!
If your changes are extensive, I will have to work hard to
integrate them into my version. If you check it into SCCS locally,
the version numbers will likely be kept. IF you check it into RCS
or CVS locally, please use -k to keep the version numbers, and
please use branch deltas (1.21.1, 1.21.2, ...). If you don't do
this, I will likely be unable to use your changes; life's just too
- Do not distribute changed versions.
People trying to be helpful occasionally put up their hacked versions
