Great. Thank you very much :) Which reminds me - our server is currently 
running potato without such a daemon as I did not recompile the package *arg*
I have to do that soon before the next power outage I presume.

Okay, I will try ssd first.

I will adopt it if it works for me.

Great work again.

... or move it to orphaned :)

Thanks for your work Andreas. I know I promised to test your package 
but I did not have the time or I had to work on other things with 
higher priority respectively.

I have to test ssd now since otherwise our server will not notice the 
power failure on new years eve ;)

Thanks again


<Overfiend> We should not let Xu have this package. [libncurses5]
<Bluehorn> Overfiend: OTOH - what could you split from libncurses? ;)
<cerb> one package per .h
<Myth> with a user per header
<vaidhy> We can also have each terminfo in  a separate package :)
