I went to the IRC yesterday. People were quite helpful there but unfortunately we couldn't make a breakthrough before I had to call it a day and have some sleep. On the other hand, all the failed attempts made me able to phrase my issues in a clearer way, so that I can make a comprehensible post in the mailing list.
