would be nice if you could take the existing BEXTRACT patch and merge it
into BACULA, or add your own ideas and add the improved version of
BEXTRACT to the same SF patch ticket (maybe you can explain us
non-Bacula-users why it needs to be separate).

Kind Regards,

What's the correct etiquette?  Should I wait until your patch is accepted and pull down that trunk, or apply your patch to the current trunk, and add my changes?
