- review of the thread changes
- review of the API consolidation
- review of the updated manpages
- review of docbook2man detection
- prove of "make test"
- answers to the examples/test consolidation
- feedback to earlier question I've asked on the list

Well, why doesn't compile on FreeBSD 8 or RHEL 5? There're some
additional things to do for FreeBSD, but not much. RHEL should do
fine as Ubuntu and SLES (last ones are fully tested). Having TODO's
doesn't mean it fails to compile.

Another kind of very welcome feedback would be: "I take care for the
Windows part" or "Here, I'm willing to test on X, Y and Z".

And the feedback I've asked for (many times before) wasn't OS related.

Probably take a look into the tarball would help - it's a git repository.
And no, I won't upload (or push) it to github. Fetching the tarball,
unpacking it and then doing whatever you do with git would produce
the same result.
