Ok,

I think I'll take it then, mainly because I'm currently working
(together with upstream) in getting better lm_sensors support into
gkrellm, basicly make it use libsensors (and thus obey
/etc/sensors.conf) instead of doing things itself.

You probably do not know this but I wrote an lm_sensors driver for the
uGuru chip found on Abit motherboards, so I'm getting sort of intimate
with sensors stuff.

So if you could please not upgrade gkrellm in Core anymore then I'll
create 2 packages (gkrellm & gkrellm-wireless) with a higher E-V-R and
submit them to Extras, once they are build I'll send you mail requesting
the removal of the then older versions from Core. Agreed?

This may take some time though since I'm going away on holliday for a
week next week and I doubt I'll have time for this this weekend.

Regards,

Hans
