        Right. I have seen that the mailing list has today 41 readers. I don't
give any name, but I believe that some people should contribute ;-)

        Yes, and merging certain (experimental) features with the official kernel

        And we need another type of contributers... For the DCL, we need some programs

such as DIRECTORY.EXE, COPY.EXE... I think that it is possible to modify
the fileutils.tar.gz to have the VMS command.
