Obviously not straight from the horse's mouth :-)

I'll have a look at them over the weekend. I do have some code somebody
else produced (i.e. a post-instalation configure routine) to incorporate
into mrtg. I hope you don't mind if I take the packages back.

Shouldn't there be a requirement for a maintainer to be emailed before
someone else takes over their package? (not bitching, just wondering)

I recently (as part of my Debian upgrade) installed debhelper...yet
another packaging tool to try to get up to speed on. Has anyone produced a
hello-debhelper package yet?
