Hi !

Some progress on that problem.

I adopted the packages as there was an RFA opened against them.

Packages uploaded. They are now stuck in NEW. If an ftpmaster is reading
this email, please accept the packages asap. It would be good if the
problem could be solved before Sarge is freezed.

Still to be done:

PS: David, sorry for all the mails you have surely received from the
    BTS (tagging bugs pending).
