Hm, seems so, partly. How do you gather missing entries? My way is
pretty dumb, I just do bunch of installworlds + delete-old's and add
diff to the file, you probably do it more cleverly. Will committing
my changes interfere with your work? If so, it may be better to direct
them to your branch instead. Especially if you are more aware of knob
combinations and their effects.
