speakup, 2.6.22, and the way forward

Hi Nick.  Git is a version control system like svn and cvs.  We are
switching to git because that is what the kernel people are using now
days.  The v2.2 and v2.4 diffs are still in cvs because Kirk hasn't found
the time to remove them, although speakup in cvs is no longer backwards
compatible with kernels beyond 2.6.21.  You have to understand that
the kernel folks don't necessarily maintain backwards compatibility
across kernel versions.  You can get older cvs versions of speakup by
providing a date for kernels back to version 2.6.12, but not earlier. 
For 2.4 kernels, you need the speakup 2.0 tarball.  I don't know if the
speakup 1.5 tarball will still work with 2.2 kernels or not.  Hope
this helps.
