Hi Mario,

Yes. :)
Congrats on the new release!

MythDora also has the framework for this already in place. If this is
something that the complete install distributions can agree upon, then
it shouldn't be all that hard to do. Other then database dump there
are probably some minor issues that would need to be ironed out. Cecil
you mentioned /myth and it's been a while since I've installed
KnoppMyth. Is that your main directory? If someone wants to get
something started on a distribution porting idea, I'm game.

>>Yes, Dennis and I usually chat over Gmail.
I actually recommended something he liked ;-). Cecil shoot me a
message if you want to go over some ideas.
