That is indeed much appreciated, thanks a lot.

Cees and I have met before :-). Nope, I'm just being my obnoxious
self attacking the situation, which in all honesty is unacceptable.
Sometimes bluntness seems the only way to get a response.

The last time I looked (I am currently not on the LDP list),
HOWTO writer's etc. were urged/encouraged/whatever to move to 
DocBook. For months, I kept occasionally installing and 
removing 1.x and 2.x. I am simply not in the position to 
learn Python just to get the package installed. I won't switch
to RedHat either.

Thanks for trying. If only somebody could be specific for once, 
then I'd happily write it down as a fool-proof (by my success)

If the updated package gets uploaded to stable, I am sure 
there are a few  people on the lists who'd appreciate a short 
notifier. Thanks for replying.
