Hi Alejandro,
at the beginning of the project I was workking to produce a patch file,
something simple to apply with a single command.
But during the developement I needed to modify some parts in the core,
like add instruction to compile my new file in autotools build system.
I needed also to modify some parts in the config parser to put MySQL
informations into icecast.xml

At the end, I choosed to fork the entire source code and to make a my
own repository.

Right now I'm working to keep my repo aligned with the latest tar.gz
released in the official site by hand, using a combinations of diff and
patches created on-the-fly, but I know that is a very complicated method
to mantain in the future.

I will be very happy if official Icecast developers will merge my mods
into the main repository.
Of course my code need to be cleaned and improved by someone more expert
in C programming than me :)
