+ create your own by updating Keywords to eg. "easyHack, difficultyBeginner, skillCpp,
+ please remember, a codepointer is mandatory, and typically a look from an experienced developer
+ create new easy hacks from these ones or remove "needsDevEval" if not feasible):
+ Patches still coming in over the summer
+ Mailed 40+ old developers that have not contributed for 3 month or more,
+ again got lots of positive responses
+ apparently nearly the only foundation that pings old developers
+ Patches from Zdenek (to Calc) is piling up, would be nice to get those commented/merged
