Are you still sheparding this project? I remembered to look at http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/nmh I noticed that there are outstanding bugs - I haven't had a chance to look at the reports. Do you need help with them?

Please let's do it!! I've been using nmh-1.1-RC1.tar.gz since Nov 18, 2002. It works. I give it my blessing (for whatever that's worth!). I've forgotten who had put it together and where it's hosted - does anyone remember??

Hi. Seems like we've had a 1.1 release candidate sitting for a long time. Can we make it a release yet? It would be nice to have something newer than 1.0.4 going into things like Linux distributions. Hm, well ... how about everyone (including me) makes sure what's on the 1.1 branch compiles on

The makefile in the 'man' directory works with GNU make, but not Sun make (/usr/ccs/bin/make). What's the preferred solution here? Require GNU make? If so, shouldn't the configure script check for its presence, and set execution paths accordingly?

If vim 6.0 is installed on a Solaris system, the 'ex' program included with vim 6.0 goes into an infinite loop when this statement in 'configure' is executed: if echo 'r /nonexist-file q' | ex /dev/null 21 It seems wrong to me to include a newline in the string this way. It could be

Sorry, spoke too soon. The real problem has to do with output redirection. if echo 'r /nonexist-file q' | ex works but if echo 'r /nonexist-file q' | ex /dev/null 21 hangs. Redirecting just standard output cause no problem. But there doesn't seem any output to redirect anyway...
