Hi, Harald!

I merged jolly_merge branch to master today, sorry for so long delay.
I have done some tests and I think that now we have first stable
version of osmo-pcu.
So at this stage I guess that Andreas or you can commit or merge bug
fixes to master without any approvals, I think that bug fixes
shouldn't be stored in a private branches.
But all features and fundamental changes in the code should be
developed in a private branches and should be discussed in the mailing
list before merging to master.
I plan to resume the development of osmo-pcu soon, we should implement
PCCCH/PBCCH support, so I will create new branch for this feature and
at this stage I suggest to merge and commit only bug fixes to master
