The module is now OpenMP free. So no problems with it any more. Also the win32 
build is running so far. :-)

PuPLiSt now also works with the git version. Only tiny changes were needed.

I think, we can make a patch to get it into the dev tree.

According to

we could build a patch and upload it to the web, if it is wanted.

If I understand it correctly: Someone of us will get git access, so we could 
modify the code later?

Thanks for the information,
