Hi Jean,

no news so far :( To much other work since I changed the employer and
maybe I've been a bit lazy lately :)

Ok, I will reserve some time next week to revise the patches.

BTW I did some work on the DMI configuration topic a few month ago. I
don't forgot this one. But it's far from being ready. So far there's
just a bash script for fetching the configs from lm-sensors.org and
another one looking for DMI data and suitable config and copy this
one. Is it worth to post this prototype to have something to discuss
or should I better finish the work? I think I will post it :)

Thanks,
Andre
