Hi Owen,

Can you elaborate on which problems you have resolved (or attempted to 
resolve)? I'm presently running aprx-2.06.svn507 on the iGate I run in 
the Sydney area for WICEN and have had occasional issues where it seems 
to stop sending my beacons, particularly when it gets a bit of activity. 
I didn't have the same problem when I was running on a PC but I forget 
which version that was. I'm running on a Pi now using the kernel ax.25 
stack so the deb sounds interesting.

I'm keen to try it out to see if that particular problem goes away but 
would be interested in what other things you have fixed. We have the 
Canoe Classic coming up late next month so now is a good time to try our 
your fork before things get busy again.
