everyone is free to contribute code to m0n0wall, but Manuel decides if this
code should be included or not. It's his project, and if we disagree with
him, this list is here for us to enlighten him ;)

Many of us are, yes...but cvs'ing this project could be interesting...
I think that if you have an idea, ask Manuel, make the code or whatever
and send it over to him for verification and testing. If its good, im
sure he will include it. if not, try again...
Still it would be nice to have a little insight in what he is working
on at the moment, so this wont happen to me again: 
the other day i wrote a little update on ipsec(enabling tunnels to other
interfaces/subnets than LAN), and forgot to tell Manuel first. When i
finally did ask him if he mind me looking into it, he had already written 
it himself ;) 
ok, his code was better than mine... BTW Manuel: maby you should display
witch local subnet/single host the ipsec tunnel is using? (on the list).
