I *am* working on a new version. However, if you want to make a
version specifically for potato-on-kernel-2.4 (which you'll
have to do anyway, as you need to depend on the correct libc6 etc)
then go ahead, but don't upload to unstable. Also use a suitable
version number such as 3.1pre1b-4.potato .

Well, if you don't think you've encountered a bug, don't bother
upgrading :-)

The isdnutils package 3.0-20 in potato has extensive backports of patches
from 3.1pre1 in it.  The only possible gotcha is when using devfs, which
is an optional feature AFAIK.  And the current isdnutils on woody also
has issues with devfs at the moment.

Expect a new isdnutils set next week.
