Thanks for the update. Although it would be nice to get the official 
repositories onto GIT - where exactly is the problem?

And regarding the revamped Nagios - is this meant to be an invitation 
for testing, or for using those versions? When will all those fixes be 
merged back in to the CVS HEAD

Sounds good, will give it a try. A bunch of nice improvements, and 
bugfixes next to those where I've already applied the patches and tested 
them over here :)

Any news on NDOUtils and other Core addons? Next to the Core it would be 
nice to know what's going on with them.

Kind regards,
