I prefer not to separate my hats like that when I can avoid it; I like
having a single personality. As I said in another mail just now, getting
groff into distributed revision control was the first step for me in
getting *both* of those distributions onto something current.

(I don't believe I've ever actually claimed that Debian's old groff fork
was a good thing! I just have a very high resistance to deliberately
introducing regressions. Fortunately, with the excellent work in 1.20,
there is now not very far to go.)
