Please provide the patches to integrate the driver into LCDproc too:
=2D acinclude.m4 (for the driver selection in
=2D server/drivers/ (for how to make the driver)
=2D LCDd.conf (for the driver configuration)
=2D docs/LCDd.8 (info about the driver in the LCDd man page)
=2D docs/lcdproc/user/drivers/XXX.docbook (info about the driver)

Especially the documentation is important as it allows other=20
people to get to know the driver and its uses without having to=20
browse through the code and ask on the mailing ist.
Please use the CVS version (the nightly tar balls are O.K)
for that as it may slightly differ from the 0.5 version.

I hope you understand that this patch will not make it into the release=20
without changes.
I see a few options:
=2D add a patch file to the CVS containing the patch
=2D modify the patch so that it is hidden behind=20
<your code>
If anybody then wants the functionality he can then configure
lcdproc with this define
and the extended functionality is available to him/her

Best regards
