+# happy new*S* year
+
+So this was Christmas, new year, et al. Too bad Murphy struck again on the first
+day of my (theoretical) vacation, delivering me a nice flu (not yet completely
+absorbed). Nevertheless I managed to do something funny in the last few days:
+
+* I remembered that I do have, as all other DDs, a [personal lintian
+page](http://lintian.debian.org/reports/maintainer/zack@debian.org.html) and I
+have thus spent some time fixing warning ignored since ever (almost all uploads
+are still in delayed queues however); while I was at it I also decided to
+"destroy" my lintian page moving my name to Uploaders for packages that still
+weren't co-maintained. (/me eager to see
+[this](http://lists.debian.org/debian-qa/2007/12/msg00183.html) implemented, go
+Russ, go!)
+
+* I have fixed the [vcs field stats
+page](http://sockmel.bononia.it/~zack/vcs-urls/) to consider as equal `Vcs-Svn`
+fields pointing to URLs like `svn://svn.debian.org/foo` and
+`svn://svn.debian.org/svn/foo` which are indeed the same final path on
+[alioth](http://alioth.debian.org). That's why in the graph you now see an
+inversion in the relative positions of <q>field with wrong value</q> and
+<q>correct field</q>, in case you were wondering. Thanks to Sandro Tosi for the
+hint.
+
+* I have finally managed to leave the 18th century my mail set-up was living in:
+goodbye pop + [[debpkg fetchmail]] + [[debpkg mutt]], welcome imap4 + [[debpkg
+offlineimap]] + mutt.  In the former setup I was unable to read my old mails
+while away from my laptop, now I have decent replicas of my full mailboxes in
+various places. I'm still a bit unhappy about how can I force a send/receive
+email cycle: with fetchmail I used to have a demonized fetchmail running in the
+background and just executing `fetchmail` I was able to force that. Now, with
+offineimap, I've an autorefresh-ed offlineimap running inside [[debpkg screen]]
+and I need to bring up the screen and then hit `1` to trigger a sync cycle.
+
+... now back to that paper introduction due for December 26th :-/
