No worries.  I think we all have made the same type of mistake (and I sure
have made some rather more serious ones).

It seems to me that Peter is leaning towards the same opinion as me, so
you still have strong opinions to keep this list in 'archlinux' would

You are very familiar with the code in 'archlinux' by now, so it'll probably
be easiest for you to revert the change yourself.  Is that all right
