non-maintainer version of diald-0.14
I have debianized diald-0.14, and it is working for me, In
fact, I'm using it as I speak. No more cpu hog. I seem to remember
the package maintainer (Giuseppe Vacanti
<Giuseppe.Vacanti@DeSelby.xs4all.nl>) saying that he would be very
busy in the near future, so maybe this version should be released.
However, this is my first attempt at something like diald,
and I'd like to have it tested by the developers before unleashing on
the unwary masses. Is there a set procedure for this?
I have uploaded the file to my account on master.debian.org,
(/home/Debian/srivasta/), and they should be visible to the
developers from thier accounts, at least. I could move the files to
Incoming, and the archive maintainer-of-the-day could move it into
experimental or HOLD till it is tried by some more people.
I'd appreciate it if people who try this package report bugs
to me, till it is released to the general public.
ps. I'll move it into Incoming tomorrow, unless there are objections,
along with a request to leave it on HOLD for the next few days. ms.
