Oops! /me corrects gallery. Of course, I could not have taken our
pictures, as I was too busy transcribing ;-)

Both checks can be added. Just adding the dh-make-perl revision to the
file's header, will allow us to quickly identify it visually (and
probably hint any hypothetical updating tool on whether the file in
question deserves consideration for a given process). And checking
against the MD5 will allow for much better automated updates

Yup - Just add before your header (and probably before the

No, the check is done only at the first build - when the files are
laid out. Upstream cannot relicense our code - And the chosen
licensing for our packaging is just a suggestion kindly made by
dh-make-perl. We added the GPL2+ and Artistic license to keep all of
our work interchangeable.

OT: I'm more than delighted with my AcerAspireOne. There was
practically no hacking involved in getting everything recognized by a
standard Lenny (well, that can also be seen as a turnoff ;-) ). Why is
the Eee problematic? (feel free to reply off-list or not to reply, or
