You can only upload to master.debian.org if you have signed the
packages (eg. built them with dpkg-buildpackage) and you are a Debian
maintainer (your key has been added to the Debian keyring).  This is
Debian's way of preventing untrusted people from uploading Trojans.

Information on how to become a Debian maintainer is at:


It's a small bit of a hassle (you need to get your key signed by
another maintainer, in person) - and somebody from the new-maintainer
team will phone you to talk with you in person.  The last I heard
though, the new-maintainer team was deluged with new applications, so
don't expect a quick turnaround.  It probably wouldn't hurt to send in
an application as soon as possible.

God knows I could use some help on the port.  :-)

When I get some time, I'll compile these and upload them.  I'm going
to do a new gcc first though.

It would be nice if we had an autobuilder working
(eg. wanna-build/buildd) - that way, we wouldn't have to manually
build packages that compiled cleanly.

I actually uploaded these a few days ago - but they are still sitting
in the Incoming queue on nonus.debian.org.  I'm not sure why it's
taking so long to process them.  I'll make some noise.
