Most of it is in CVS (tag "gxine-0_4_4-release"); the bugs mentioned there
are already tagged "fixed-upstream". I've forgotten to mention in the
changelog that bug 305106 is to be closed - I'll close this manually if
necessary - and bug 295184, IMO, shouldn't be closed yet because only the
build-dep part has been applied to 0.4.4. I applied the rest of it to CVS

That affects xine-lib. The relevant bug here is 289412/295344, which isn't
security-critical; this message is CCed accordingly. (I'll see any responses
if they're in -mentors or CCed to me.)

Whether it's uploaded with my name or a DD's name in the changelog entry for
0.4.4, I don't particularly mind. It's probably easiest to start with my
.diff.gz or the debian directory from CVS, though.
