Hello friends,

Actually, I followed the tip I read into the wiki of WINE in "Patch submission 
guidelines", so I tried to imitate the style of other patches for WINE and for 
this reason I used an identical title with a progressive number as subject. If 
something different is prefered, no problem, I will follow your suggestion and 
I will use a more focused title.

Well, ReactOS notepad had been imported from WINE long time ago and various 
people did some changes on it and I'm included in them since, in this specific 
case, the status bar implementation had been almost rewritten by me.
I'm not an expert too, but since it is distribuited under the same license of 
WINE, with same coding restrictions and all people who sent patches have agreed 
to the same GPL as well, my intuition would say that there is no problem on 
this... because the owner who can providing this code to you is the ReactOS 
project itself.
That's just my opinion of course... I will wait for your suggestions/orders...
