If I can find some time, I will check again what could go into 1.3 and
what not and send a patch for that. I do understand that cumulative
patches are inconvenient. However, for me making non-cumulative patches
is equally inconvenient. The way to make it convenient for both of us is
for you to respond more quickly to patches. If I have multiple more or
less orthogonal changes to the same C-files some of which have to go into
a different version of GiNaC, separatating these is really inconvenient.
Why don't you simply keep two GiNaC trees on your computer: one for 1.3
and one for HEAD. That way you can immediately apply patches in the right
place. If anything is unclear about a patch I will be happy to expain.
