Than you for your trust in me. :)

So far so good. Basically I got 3 feedbacks/advices so far:
* Suggestion to move 'bison' from Build-Depends-Indep to Build-Depends,
because build servers ignore B-D-I.
* Jakub pointed out a very silly Build-Depends, see #587875
* First bug for 4.8.1 has been reported: #661435
"lynx-like motion reset to default on upgrade; option moved to Panel
In the upcoming 4.8.1-2 version I addressed first two problems and
incorporated two additional patches:
* new patch to increase maximum file size for mcedit to 128 MiB
* new patch to disable "Return does autoindent" by default in mcedit
(I'm not sure how to deal with #661435 yet)
If you don't mind rapid release it would be nice to have new version uploaded
if you're OK with slightly controversial changes to Build-Depends, which I
introduced today after long discussion on mentors. (tested in GNU Hurd as
well) Today most of the day I spent doing mc-related "bugworks" ;)
so numbers should go down, but I'd like to close a bit more with upload of

I'm glad you can use your favorite tool.
Frankly I don't like how most teams using git-buildpackage to merge upstream
source with debian/* files in master... I think it is nice to have tidy
repository with debian files only, while developers can have upstream files in
their private branches. But I reckon it's just my inexperienced impression
which may be overturned by learning more about git-buildpackage...

Thank you Andreas for providing me with such great support. :)
It is a pleasure to work with you.
I'm grateful to all of you (especially you, Yury) for all the work you
dedicated to mc which I was using all these years without knowing people
behind it. :)
