11 disable color when tty = NULL; may break less?

13 - multiline reads don't yet work for quse/qsearch
14
15 - Speed is everything.
16 Having your PORTDIR and VDB on the right file system helps dramatically

27 - Fetching via anoncvs.
28 The cvs module for gentoo-projects is mirrored. You may download a
29 pretty recent copy using the following command. Note: that this is not
30 the official cvs server but rather a mirror so it lags about an hour or
31 so behind the real tree which is hosted on cvs.gentoo.org
32
33 cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@zarquon.twobit.net:/var/cvsroot -q -z9 co -R gentoo-projects/portage-utils
34
35 - Adding applets is easy using the q framework.
36 cp template.c qmyapplet.c (all applets use the prefix of the letter 'q')
37 edit applets.h add your prototype, then scroll down the typedef for
38 applets[] and add your applet name following the existing syntax. Please
39 try to keep applet names under 8 chars. Finally, edit main.c, scroll to
40 the bottom, and add your applet to the #include list.
41
42 When and where you can please try to use an existing applet and extend
43 on it's functionality by adding more options vs adding a bunch of new
44 little applets.
