That's unfortunate, as it means we can't accept patches from you.

But if you still want to help kaffe, you can keep reporting bugs, or you 
can write test cases for mauve, see http://sources.redhat.com/mauve/, or 
run kaffe regularly against mauve, or some benchmarks, and report the 
results, and so on. ;)

Thanks for your understanding. Hope to hear some more bug reports from 
you ;)
