Nico to hear!

Because all were submitted to be included

I did not have a look at them for a long time - possibly
all three have senseful code; have a look at them and
try to use the cleanest version

No. Git was introduced after 1.19.x.

Maybe Alessandro..iirc there are at least the tarballs available at the

gpm and gpm2 will be developed in parallel.
sometimes borrowing code from each other (cleanup from gpm2 goes to gpm1
and patches available for gpm1 will also go into gpm2).

Thus said I just merged the gpm2 branch into 1.20.1-bugfix branch, which
contains the splittoff of many of the old huge files, and runs on my
notebook for some time.

This breaks many of the old patches, but was needed for years to have
a better view about all the code.



Think about Free and Open Source Software (FOSS).
