I was afraid you would say that. I have found a temporary solution which is to
tell people that as a matter of policy I will not edit archives but they can
solve their problem by:
a) doing software development necessary to make a publishable patch to the
archiver. They or their designated agent write the code and test it, I will
verify testing and advocate inclusion of the patch in the project.
b) take over some of my open source development work (camram) and I will do the
archiver modifications for them.
funny how I never hear anything back... ;-)
