Packaging of lame upstream (was: Re: lame not in the debian package repository?)
Hi, this is just an aside on this discussion.
I am a member of the lame team and I am gradually upgrading things related
to the Debian packaging of lame, since a new release (that is, lame 3.97)
is expected to happen soon.
If you use MP3 for your computers/devices and you use Debian, please let me
know how the package works for you.
The packaging is still not in a good shape, but I hope to get it better and
I would appreciate any help from developers with comments on the packaging.
BTW, talking about MP3, I also plan on packaging vbrfix for Debian (which
is a utility to fix VBR MP3 files that don't have proper headers). I am in
contact with the author of vbrfix and I have some clean-ups in mind.
This program, BTW, is written in C++, which means that it may not reach
Debian's testing soon, given the ABI transition, if I manage to get it
sponsored for Debian proper.
