I'm not quite sure if we should discuss this here or in the pull request 
itself. Maybe Mark or Michael should say whats best. Anyhow... Let me 
put you to ease with my /answers below.../

/The T26A code in my pull request is not the one from your fork. It's 
the one that is officially in the master branch of openvehicles. So 
nothing changes for the user and not one source line is different then

/The user is not able to use any of the OBD code as pointed out in the 
pull request description. This is more an esthetic question as the code 
is not active. If the others feel the same I can remove my obd_*.* files 
from the pull request. The outcome is the same... /

/To sum up: Nothing at all changes for the user with me my pull request. 
Well... besides the name of the VW e-Up vehicle. But is taken care of in 
the upgrade method./

/I even prepared everything so you have it as easy as possible when this 
pull request is put into the master: When you pull it your fork you only 
have to backup your three t26_*.* files from your fork. Then just take 
1:1 the openvehicles-master and put your backup back.
At least that's how I would do it as I'm not familiar how this is done 
in git directly ;)/
