Thanks very much for submitting this patch.  I would be prepared to
accept it, apart from a couple of small problems, which I hope we can

  1. The patch contains a copyright notice assigning copyright to
     Gabor Keresztfalvi.  The FSF cannot accept the patch unless the
     copyright is assigned over to it.

     Note - normally in order to accept any kind of submission a
     special copyright assignment form has to be completed as well,
     but exceptions can be made in the case of simple, obvious patches.
     I am prepared to do this in this case, since the patch could also
     have been submitted in words - "swap the order of the MeSsAgEs and
     CoPyRiGhT tags".  But, the copyright notice at the start of the

       # (c) Nov-2000 by Gabor Keresztfalvi <>

     still needs to be resolved.  Since the patch explicitly includes a
     copyright notice, the patch belongs to Gabor.  He needs to
     explicitly assign the copyright to that patch over to the FSF
     before the FSF can accept it.

  2. Patches need a ChangeLog entry to say what has changed.
     Something very simple like this should do:

     2002-04-09  Gabor Keresztfalvi <>

	* nlmcode.h (nlm_swap_auxiliary_headers_out): Swap order of
	MeSsAgEs and CoPyRiGhT tags in order to work with NetWare
	NW4.x and NW5.x loaders.
