131	  now in $HOME/.config/surfraw/conf. The same applies to bookmarks.

133	  http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-0.6.html

245    Use surfraw-update-path to add this directory to your path or
246    prefix elvi with sr or surfraw, eg "sr google foo bar".
247
248    Bookmarks can be defined in /etc/surfraw.bookmarks or

268
269If you used surfraw-update-path from version 2.0 to add the elvi
270directory to your path, you will need to run it again, first with
271-remove to remove the old path, then again with -add. To change your
272path you will need to either log out and in again or source the
273relevant config files.

313	sharereactor, thesaurus, webster, deblists.
314  * Added note to HACKING explaining how to disable ifs quoting
315  * synced NAMESPACE branch with HEAD
316    Please use the main HEAD branch from now on.
317  * links.IN: made links relative
318  * Converted debconf to po-debconf
319  * Eliminated templates.IN, as it confused po-debconf
320  * Deautoconfiscated the debian directory, as only templates went through
