Hi Tsvetomir,

sorry for the late reply. I assume this mail got lost a bit in the
days of Astricon. I even asked Daniel about this mail during Astricon,
but he hadn't seen it yet. Right now, I'm officially on holiday....

Can you please provide a Pull-Request for the changes?

>From my perspective, it is likely fine to have a Linux-Only module, it
might not be the first one. If you can encapsulate your extensions
with some IFDEF's, so the functionality can be disabled on non-Linux,
then that would be fine with me.

It would be great, if Daniel or anyone else from the Management-Group
could answer or comment this one as well??
