Re: Porting xtl to DEC Alpha



First of all, I want to apologize for not answering email for some
time. I've been very busy for a couple of weeks and in the last
few days on travel. During next week I'm having a vacation and
when I'm back I'll take the time to incorporate all patches and issue
a new version.

Sure. My only request is thak we make an effort to keep the versions
synchronized.

Hmmm... I really prefer to edit LaTeX directly :-) and think that plain
LaTeX is better for distribution. But I would certainly not opose to changes
to that make it "reLyX friendly".

Besides sending it to the list, I should have added it right away to
the XTL page. It is there now.
