SubjectRe: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.18 24/58] Input: atakbd - fix Atari CapsLock behaviour
From
Date
Dmitry,

someone on debian-68k reported the bug, which (to me) indicates that the
code is not just used by me.

Whether or not a functioning Capslock is essential to have? You be the
judge of that. If you are OK with applying the keymap patch, why not
this one?

Debian will carry stable patches without explicit action on behalf of
the maintainer. Unstable patches are a little harder to get accepted.

Cheers,

    Michael
