Yes, probably I miss much information. Little time a go I sing the assignment
with the FSF to contribute in the elliptic curves development. This means in
introduction time, during which I'll send patches to be verified if it work

branch. Does it have more sense?

Also another option is what I did until now. That is, prepare a diff file from
the old sources, with my changes, and apply it to the other checkout and get
