I agree with what M.W. said that its been working so well there has been no 
reason to comment on it.  I've been on this list for years and other than to 
ask some questions about re-mastering, I haven't commented at all.

But I'm guessing that the fact that the speakup code is now in the vanilla 
kernel source changes things, right? You don't have to pull it from git any 
more. All you have to do is check the boxes for the speakup modules when 
compiling your kernel. It'll take up some space but given the importance of 
these modules to some people, I'd think you'd want to do that.

Christian, are you in a position to make a policy decision on this issue? I 
think you should consider including brltty, espeak, and espeakup on the disk 
for reasons I talked about at length in another message.  But my opinion is 
that including the speakup modules should be a sure thing. I'd be very 
disappointed if you decide against that at least.
