[gpm] Getting wheel events working again

 first of all, GPM is a great piece of software.
 I think it is very useful for specific applications e.g. audio 
non-graphical applications.

 However, it is a concern that it does not apparently support the wheel 
of wheel mice.
 Most of the available product now is the 3 button wheel mouse type e.g. 
MS basic mouse, or various Logitech devices.

 I think it is important to get the "wheel" patch working again.

 I am prepared to do some software work to assist, but would like some 
advice, as follows:-

 - why are there 3 patches in gpm/patches/todo/imwheel ?
 - is one of them preferred?

 - does the git repository have all the history of the project?
   I'm not a git expert, but it seems to me that the history of the 
project has been collapsed.

 - does anyone have the earlier CVS or SVN repository, to be able to 
view 1.19.3 ?
   that version seems to be the basis for the imwheel patches

 - should all future work go to GPM2, or is GPM to be continued in parallel?

thank you,
