Hmm, that's odd. Your other email made it through. Ah, perhaps it's
because darcs send uses the patch author as the from address but you're
subscribed to the cabal list with a different email address.

I wish it were possible to configure mailman to always let darcs patches
through, even from non-subscribers. :-(

Yes, I wasn't complaining! Just saying in general what people should do.

I have applied them, thanks for updating it.

Yeah, I wish I knew. Since as you say it'd be useful in future to know
this, I've updated the JHC.configure function to check the minimum
