Hi Jaap,

thanks for your feedback:

> - Convert to build in dissectors, there's no reason not to.

Done that.

> - Remove calls to check_col()

Why is that?  I took the template-code for dissectors from the
where it explicitely states that one should check if this column is active -
is this not valid anymore?

> - In the header fields change the "" blubs by NULL

Done that.

> - You could look into the expert info system for error reporting.
> - The occasional // style comment has to go

Shoot - overlooked the one C++ comment in RTP-MIDI ;-)

> - some proto_tree_add_text() calls could be proto_tree_add_item() calls

Actually I have tried to move as many of the ...add_text calls to
...add_item calls.
In cases where I have used the ...add_text, not enough information was
or I had to take information from several places to get some more
text displayed which I could not automatically generate with the items...

If you have any specific place in mind, which I should change,  I would be
glad if
you could give me a pointer to a line in my code.

> - last parameter of proto_tree_add_item() is a gboolean, so  either TRUE

Done that.

> - Fuzztest them.

Done that. No problems found.

> - And finally, add them to an enhancement bug.

I will be doing this as soon as the remaining questions/topics above have

> - Protocol pages on the Wiki would be welcome documentation as well.

I will look into that.

Best regards,
