true there were so many things changed that it's almost a rewrite...
I've just noticed that debdiff didn't show that some files were renamed
and moved into other directories and there are new files too (e.g.
calendar.cpp and calendar.h in qshutdown)... I've tried the "-m FROM TO"
option but I can't get it right as it seems...
If these changes are really too much, then it can't be helped... :'(
The problems regarding qprogram-starter aren't that serious for version
1.2.5-1 to get into stable though.
