Imagmagick license & various problems
I've debianized ImageMagick and uploaded it to master, in section
non-free for now. However I think I could move it to the 'graphics'
1) The license states it's free (included as attachment)
2) It doesn't include the GIF compression code
What do you think about this ?
A Debian user would like to change the default cache size (16MB) for
the display program to something more suitable for small systems.
I don't want to modify the source unnecessarily. This cache size can
be controlled through a X resource. I'm considering the following
1) Change this to something smaller (making the manpage wrong) in
2) Make a postinst script to ask the user about it. (I don't like
this solution, if every package asked small details like this, it
would be a nightmare).
3) Document the problem in the doc file.
Once again, are there any advices on this ?
BTW, I've sent a message to debian-changes to inform users about the upload of the package, but the message never came out. What's the procedure to send a message to debian-changes ?
