thanks for the info. That's good news! :-)

Ok. I would like to sign on for a little demand on that engineering time
already now, if possible. :-)

On behalf of Ruediger Volk I developed a few extensions for the ToolSet and
there are also some patches ready to integrate if they were not integrated
already. All these changes were made on a private copy of IRRToolSet v4.8.4.
I called this forked version "IRRToolSet-4.8.4-HB". Its latest version is
available at

There you can also find a little description of the extensions integrated in
my forked version. All patches I wrote so far are integrated in that version
too and you can get a listing of these patches here:

maybe some of them are of interest to some of you as well, and perhaps there
are some people who find the extensions worth to be integrated in a next
official IRRToolSet version. It would be nice to hear about that, if so. :-)
So be warmly asked for downloading the code and play around with it. Fair
comment is always welcome! :-)
