paje.app 1.97+cvs20080110-2 did not built on mipsel for 26 days:
I wrote a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (I put them in CC of this mail again)
asking to trigger a build on 5 feb. I got no answer (can someone confirm that
I'm using the good address email) ?
I really hope this package will be build soon: paje.app was removed from testing a few
time ago due to old FTBFS bugs. I would like this version to be in testing some times
before the lenny freeze (new upstream version with new GNUStep libraries)
Currently, paje.app in unstable 1.97+cvs20080110-2 has no bugs for 26 days but mipsel
build is missing and preventing testing migration...
