you can put the important issue on this list - time. I didn't forgot
your patches, but I had to fix some other stuff first to make the
maintaining of it much more easier for me. Right now I am checking the
latest bits before I am going to release BlueZ libs and utils 2.8. The
bluez-sdp and bluez-pan packages will be obsoleted and I also included
the HID and CUPS support into it. After 2.8 is out we should talk about
how we include your patches. Drop me a note on the bluez-devel mailing
list with the current state of your patches.
