but what about X 3.3.3 in potato ? there don't seem to be yet debian sources
for it ...

what is the reason for the xfree86-corel packages ? would it not be nicer if we
could present them in the form of patches against the normal xfree, instead of
having two xfree source that are both more than 40MB big, this is hard on
people mirroring the source tree. Also i noticed same problems with
base/fileutils-hurd and base/fileutils, both package seem to be exactly the
same size, so they are chances that they are there two times. Is this really
necessary ?

Should the correct thing to do not be one .tar.gz file, and a n extra set of
diff/dsc files ?

i guess there are more files in this case ...
