Dear Jean

Another good news is that, after a discussion with my managers,
they agree that we commit the 792 driver for linux-2.4 as soon
as possible.

So I will commit it into lm_sensors CVS after my final test next
week. But I still have NOT the CVS account. I applied for it
one month ago, but have not received any response yet. Would you
please check it for me? Please refer to the mail sent by me on

Best Regards
