Thank you for the patches, Edouard, and for the interest. :) I'm glad
you are providing feedback even when your use case is different from
ours. This might help in some of our other side projects (BSD port and
a distro transform tool).

Definitely we are okay. :) In fact, you have the legal rights (via the
GPL license) to do so.

If you do use git (or github as Jaka suggested) you could start with a
clone of our Sorcery repository, add your patches, and stay in-sync
with our tree. That way you get all of our fixes and improvements and
are able to easily create patches to submit back upstream, to us. :)
