Any plans to backport to Woody?
This version brings a lot of bug corrections that affect also Woody.
I now have machines with enough disk space and power to compile it
myself, but this version is not "buildable" as such.
I'm trying to do it myself, but I run into some (small) problems:
- why is a newer debhelper version needed? (is it really needed?)
- do we really have to backport g++-3.2 to Woody, or is there another
Thanks, and good work
