I think one thing is not in the book : the answer to the question "why
is this package not in the book/why is this version so old/why doesn't
the book evolve any faster...".

Come on, guys, what do you think you are dealing with ? This is an
entirely free, cooperative work. Nothing advances if noone provides
work for it to move on.

So the correct answer to those questions should be : "move your ass,
you bl...y bas...rd !!!".
