Comment 1 Mary Ellen Foster 2011-12-16 11:38:44 UTC
Oh, I now see that the Fedora maintainer of mcpp (Kiyoshi Matsui) is also the upstream mcpp developer. I'll try to get a patched version built myself now if you still don't have time to maintain things.

Comment 2 Mary Ellen Foster 2011-12-16 11:43:55 UTC
Oh, hee -- I see that I'm already a co-maintainer. Well, I'll try to get this fixed up today myself then. :)
