Please, cool down a bit. The various distributions usually have a set
of patches to MC but the most important one is the UTF-8 patch. The
rest are usually of much lesser interest.

You should have done it the proper way by trying to communicate your
changes with official MC instead of making a yet another fork. You
team has just formed and no one knows for how long it will last, nor
what your aims are. Many like you have appeared in the past and soon
lost interest in their own creation. If you are unaware of that fact
you might want to check the archives.

Please, try to follow the traditional way of doing things. If you
really want to become a MC developer, be so kind, to do it the proper
way which means post your changes to the mailing list, discuss issues
and so on. You don't become a project member and developer by just
waiting for the "right" moment, appearing on the scene and taking over
of everything.
