Thanks. Note (this is just for information, I have absolutely nothing 
against it!) that Apache projects using Github as primary source have a 
policy of not integrating code without a pull request. So one needs to 
"fork" (in the Github sense of course, so not a "fork" in its common 
meaning) the project and create a pull request. This is necessary 
because Apache prefers (and at time requires) that all patches being 
integrated are not only under the right license, but also voluntarily 
contributed. "Apache Way" class finished, sorry for being boring and 
let's move on...

Perfect. Of course, it was a fork in the Github meaning rather than the 
common meaning, so I never meant to maintain a separate version, I just 
wanted to produce pull requests,

No strong preferences for me. But I won't commit anything to the 
repository until I get my account properly configured, since it is from 
my work account and I can't afford to mix (so, if a couple of commit 
with the wrong e-mail address already sneaked in, this is already bad, 
but I'll now setup my accounts and environments properly before doing 
any other activity).

Anyway, I have nothing to commit at the moment in terms of code.
