  Hi all,

as you might remember, there are only afew volonteers behind this project,
which all have also 'a real life' which makes them not available
at all times for 'Free Pascal' project.

  Besides, there are numerous other problems that I am also trying to
tackle and resolve.

  Otherwise, thank you very much for your concern, but I am OK,
just not as available as I would like...

  Coming back to the XML dump feature that you developed,
I do think that it is now in a better state, and it will probably be
integrated into main trunk after I find time to re-run the different checks
that I used for the mutual feedback.

  I cannot give you any fixed date for this, as it will depend greatly on
the time I can find for Free Pascal, and on those other tasks.

  My knowledge about those i386/x86_64 extensions is too vague,
so you will need to find another core developer to handle this bug report.

  Keep on the good work, and try to be patient with
other members that have less time to dedicate to Free Pascal!
