Hello Joel,

Hm, I don't know, let me argue a bit:

- If 368 doesn't make it into the release branch, then we have 
a really nice DOSFS implementation, but NO driver that 
supports it in any BSP. So nobody can actually use and test 
it. And all guys who want to use DOSFS based on the release 
will flood the mailing list. I am not so happy with that 

- If 368 goes in but 369 does not, then we have DOSFS and 
drivers, but no sample application to use it. I am not so hapy 
with that either.

- If 368 and 369 will not go into the release, the risk that I 
am responsible for breaking the release is not so high... 

Is it possible to put 368 and 369 into sort of a "latest 
contributions" directory, so anyone who needs DOSFS can access 
the sources (without looking for them in GNATS)? I think this 
would be a good solution...
