The renderer is based on the maintenance code (0.20.5) I'll get the latest
from head and migrate the renderer to use this (I haven't looked at the
redesign so I don't know how much effort this will be). 

I assume I'd need commit access to CVS at some point to include this in the
redesign build. What are the timescales for a developer release?

Regards, Pete.

Yes, yes, yes! Couldnt agree more. AFP would be very useful.

I suppose you based the AFP Renderer on the maintenance code (0.20.5)? A
since no more releases will be done from this branch. It may be possible to 
modify the patch to work with the current development code (CVS HEAD)

The patch process is fairly straight forward. Use a CVS client to generate a

difference file between the CVS code and your code. If you based your AFP 
Renderer on the maintenance code then be careful, you will be to do a 
difference against the branch fop-0_20_2-maintain. Then submit a new
entry with title [PATCH] and attach (not copy & paste) the difference file
the bugzilla entry.
