hey, thanks for all your hard work on this package.  You've really done
more than I have for the package, I must say.  If you hadn't been
working out bugs and creating new bugs and working them out over the
past couple of days, I would have had to do the same myself, and perhaps
I would have taken longer.  Don't be so hard on yourself :)

Don't worry, though, I do have the time to keep Galeon going.  I would
have been doing so over the past couple of days, but I simply wasn't
paying attention to galeon and didn't see that there was a problem :)

Acouple questions I'd like to put to you and to debian-devel:

Regarding the galeon/galeon-nautilus dependancies on galeon-common,
shouldn't we simply use Depends: galeon-common (= ${Source-Verson})?

And, regarding the problem with the postinst and dpkg's tendancy to be
screwed up by /usr/share/doc/galeon|galeon-nautilus's transition from a
directory to a symlink:  would it help to have current versions of
galeon Replace versions where /usr/share/doc/galeon|galeon-nautilus 
were a directory?

I'll ponder this tomorrow, i have to go see somebody in the hospital
tonight :)

Thanks again for all your help, I'll continue to work on these issues
with the help of the many developers that have a vested interest in the
quality of galeon packaging :)
