Hello Milan,

I'm not actually sure which patches you're referring to; I don't see a
development branch in tcsh's Github repository via the link you
provided. Either way, I don't have any objections to you sending your
patches in to Alpine. I also don't have any objections to you or someone
else taking over maintainership of the tcsh package.

Please keep in mind that apktools doesn't really have an 'alternatives'
system, so if you make a 'csh' symlink and another package also provides
'csh' in /usr/bin, the two packages will conflict.

Feel free to loop me in on the code review, or if you want, you can just
send the patches to me and I can handle getting them reviewed and merged.
