Hehe, well, I'd just like to point out that since jw
adopted prtsync for a while, it's hardly "my" script
anymore.  But I'll soon be maintaining it officially
again, and it will be available in CONTRIB (or OPT?
;)) soon - as my plan is to provide some tools for
httpup repository maintainers within the script.  I'll
also try to address the current known issues.
