Re: Bug#719624: Upgrading xrdp


most of your concerns are being addressed already (restoring history and such). Please do not make it more difficult, an experienced DD (Mike Gabriel) is working with us.

Because there is no current release. Upstream does not make releases anymore. The picked commit is not random. It is verified to work and includes a lot of stuff we negotiated with upstream (license issues, patches from Debian, etc.). It's the best we could get, and it works.

>      b) uploading to experimental rather than unstable?

Because the package is a major change (e.g. switching from x11vnc to x11rdp by default).
