18:55 < dilinger> Stskeeps: so what happens w/ Mer, then?
18:55 < dilinger> oh, i guess someone already asked
18:55 * dilinger reads scrollback
18:56 < Stskeeps> dilinger: short answer is that we'll be doing
backports of mer regarding fremantle and help fremantle afterlife, ..
the longer answer: it depends on how badly Meego is governed.
18:56 < Stskeeps> there might be a need for community governed
variants of Meego.
18:57 < jrayhawk> It'd be nice if Mer were merged into Debian and
stopped with the monolithic versioning.
18:57 < Stskeeps> jrayhawk: my current project is Mer^2 which is a
Debian 5.0 based Mer, which is very close to Maemo5.
18:58 < jrayhawk> monolithic upgrades are another thing that irritate
the bejesus out of me about maemo
19:01 < dilinger> Stskeeps: got a list of packages that need to go into debian?
19:01 < Stskeeps> dilinger: not currently and we also use a scratchbox
"compat" layer in OBS that makes maemo packages build
