Oh sorry, I was not aware (and did not check) that you maintained the
package yourself.

In that case I suggest in the future that you mention more clearly your
intend of such posting.

I still do not understand why you want to explicitly make us debian-edu
folks aware of a new release of your software. Is the release critical
for possible adoption into debian-edu? Or for removal? Shoould we simply
~ know about your software then why focus on a specific release?

No matter what you reason is, please make it obvious.

(and no, I am not annoyed - just want to educate you, and others
listening on this list, to improve - for the good of us all).
