Same counts for Debian as mentioned before. :-)

The patches I used against 4.2.0 for the Debian package (available in
Debian Experimental for now) should be available for easy reviewing at but Debian's
patch tracker seems down for the moment. :-(

A less comfortable variant is at;a=tree;f=debian/patches

Most of the patches should be suitable for upstream inclusion.

Solely those which change the size of some string lengths (user name,
$TERM, etc.) may cause issues as they may change the internal protocol
between client and server processs as far as I understood it.

The patch 80EXP_session_creation_time.patch should be regarded as
feature as it changes default behaviour. It sorts "screen -ls" output
by creation time and also affects "screen -rr" and friends -- IIRC it
makes them more deterministic. Maybe something for the development
branch and the 5.x releases.

                Kind regards, Axel
