Any reason why it shouldn't get uploaded? Note that I didn't check the
cache handling in /tmp, but that's potentially a security issue (think
of symlink attacks).

A last rebuild is running, I'll post eventual followups in this thread
(probably some lintian fixes, if there are some new ones since the
package was last touched).


I'm certainly fine with an upload. The only reason I haven't worked on it myself is that he has put a new release up that puts the doc "source" back in and supposedly fixes the gcc-4.3 issues. I asked him to see if he could make it fail more gracefully for users with <= 16bpp set.

In other words, go for it, we're a team ;-)
