    9 Regarding packages/ports/emerges/etc
   10 ------------------------------------
   11 
   12 CRITICAL:  if you are using a "package"/"emerge"/"port" of getmail, DO NOT
   13 REPORT PROBLEMS TO ME if that package makes changes to the original getmail
   14 code; if the package includes patches or other changes to the getmail code,
   15 report the problem to your OS vendor or packager -- only they can help you with
   16 problems introduced by their packaging of getmail.
   17 
   18 If you're not sure whether the package you're using is an unmodified version of
   19 getmail, I can help you determine that.  Make sure to include a URL to the
   20 package you installed in your email.
   21 
   22 To packagers: feel free to contact me regarding your packaging of getmail, and
   23 any issues you might have with getmail as I distribute it.  If you think
   24 changes to getmail are necessary for your package, let's discuss it -- maybe
   25 the changes you want would be good for all getmail users, and I can integrate
   26 them into the trunk.  If you *do* distribute a modified version of getmail,
   27 please make a good-faith effort at ensuring that anyone using your package
   28 knows that the version you distribute differs from mine, and the reasons for
   29 the changes.
