Git commits are local, and will always succeed. I'm guessing you

I'm sorry about the Dsource malfunctions. When I took over

There's still plenty of work to do on WindowsAPI so you could
do some of the work there. (The wiki is broken at the moment,
so I don't recommend trying to edit the module list there, but
as a temporary measure you could just post on this thread if
