I added two messages to the bug report #619734, including the diffs for
I also uploaded new versions of libgeier (0.12-1.1) and taxbird
(0.16-1.1) based on the packages, Marvin provided on his homepage.
I got no response so far, so I guess Marvin is either busy or doesn't
mind the NMU. So, if this is sufficient, I'd be glad if you would upload
the packages to DELAYED.
Otherwise, let me know wether the messages need to be reworded or
additional steps are necessary.
