I was thinking about this letter and wanted to add onto it, to make
sure I don't get pan-devel off to a bad start:  I'm very glad that
more people are going to work on Pan, and consider yourself encouraged
to work on offline reading.

However, I do request that you do it in the 0.12 branch:
If 0.11 and 0.12 go in different directions, then we're either
(a) making it difficult to keep the branches in sync, or
(b) accidentally forking the code.  IMO new code should be done
on cvs head (the 0.12 branch) and backported to 0.11 as appropriate.

There are only a few RPMs you need to install for 0.12 -- glib2,
pango, atk, gtk2, and libxml2.  I think that's reasonable.

Besides, the new online/offline and navigation code is REALLY COOL. ;)
