Your work and direction on the project has been much appreciated
Roland.  strace is a very useful tool that needed looking after, and
it's in better shape now.

I had a bunch of patches to contribute last year, to follow vforks on
uClinux and a few other things cleanups, but it seems Dmitry has done
a great job of doing the same before I got around to offering them :-)
So I've been quietly lurking and quietly appreciating what both of you
have been up to.

Good luck with whatever it is you are doing in future!
