BTW: @Günter, please do not send discussion emails to the commit list. Do
a followup to the -devel list.

BTW2: Can we set this as default, that a reply-to header gets added to
every message on the commit list. If we have access on the hook scripts
of svn we can add the -r option to
-r pkg-jed-devel at

jed_funs.txt do not exists. It's a typo of mine.

Does someone know, what slangfun.txt should be? I think it is a old
version of /u/s/d/slang1/slangfun.txt -- older than 1.4.9dbs-8. Because
libslang2 ships a more up to date version and libslang2 is the better
place to search for documentation of slang functions, we should not ship
it anymore.

Second one. Done.
