Pushing the iPhone/iPod stack into Squeeze
It looks like the iPhone/iPod stack will need some hints to make it to
Squeeze. The stack comprises libplist, libimobiledevice, ifuse and
Currently the blocker seems to be libimobiledevice; it looks like a hint
is needed as libiphone needs to be replaced by libimobiledevice in
Squeeze (it's been renamed, obvious reasons...).
What should have been a seamless and entirely self-contained transition

libimobiledevice version complete with a soname bump and GNOME packages
starting to use the stack while we weren't looking. As a consequence,
GNOME now depends on the stack, so it really badly needs to make it to
