And in case you feel that making a new release is a lot of work and
would like some of the above important bugs to make it to 0.11.4, I can
pick fixes leading up to 0.11.4 (the ones that are already in 0.11 GIT)
and include them as patches in the next revision of Debian ELinks.  We
already include the following in debian/patches/

5210d97c3756b04f1cf5c27fde8ed342ac756a0d 01_asciidoc7compatible.diff
14588b9455583096ddeb54b0541bfc230a2a2451 04_380347-entity_cache-overflow.diff

e96665134ae9b5106fe0d5c30d445212d970e91b 07_local-CGI-query-fix.diff

But I would like to pick only those that you consider important or the
ones that are requested by Debian users (and easy to merge).

Right now, contents of elinks_0.11.3.orig.tar.gz are different from
elinks-0.11.3.tar.bz2.  The debian/, po/*.gmo, po/.deps, config.log,
config.status and features.log have been removed.  But 988 is a nice to

And to make sure that users know what they are getting, there is a
get-orig-source target in the debian/rules file.
