Laptop support: acpi-support
Ubuntu has made some efforts to better support a wide range of laptops and
this resulted in some changes that are still not completely integrated in Debian.
One of the changes is that they install automatically a package called
"acpi-support" which provides lots of laptop-specific scripts. I asked
Matthew Garrett to package it for Debian but he's not interested to
maintain it because in his opinion this package is not a long-term
solution. He prefers to invest time in pm-utils of freedesktop.org.
Since I want Debian etch to work "out of the box" on most laptops, I
uploaded acpi-support to Debian. It's right now in NEW, but the sources
are in collab-maint SVN repository:
I would like this package to be added in the "laptop" task of Debian.
Since I'm definitely not an expert on this subject, I would welcome
co-maintainers for this package and of course testers!
