If you could have another read through of that spec, now it's
post-draft, and make sure we're still both planning the same thing
that'd be great.  I don't see any reason for Ubuntu to go a different

In particular I had a momentary thought about what packages should
actually depend/build-depend on now -- could you check that.

We should probably work together to cut the time down to make these
