Man, that is crazy. If not also the next stable then when ? I was
hoping that this can be done quickly so I can ask about the CEGUI
library to be packaged as well and ultimately get a nice little game
called 'sumwars' in Debian. Please see http://www.sumwars.org/ . Now
from your mail I'm disheartened as I wouldn't be able to play this
same on GNU/Linux Debian.

Right. So I'm guessing we are going to be constantly trailing :(

Also this perks up another question. Sometimes I read some of the
Debian developer logs and in one of those blog moments, somebody said
about Debian moving to GIT http://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/Git . Would
that move/workflow make things easier/faster for the end guy like me
overall ? I mean that is the idea right.

> I can provide you the source package in the meantime, if you are interested.

Cool, but I don't know about source package installation. Also it
wouldn't help me in anyway till both those packages are of recent
version and the game is in. I don't know if the game has been put up.
My bare attempts  at p.d.o. to finding the same does not find


Hoping to get more information and what I as a user could do to help
the process along (if anything) .
