It would be of great help to me either way... backports for Sarge would
be great of course but I'm also happy to provide the community with
those backports ... once I know how to setup a safe (chroot) package
build environment.

Please let me know if I can be of any help.


PS I have 20+ years experience with software engineering... but I've
just recently started to use Debian and Linux/Unix build environments,
so I'm running a little behind...


A journalist once asked the late Gandhi what he thought of the western

good idea!".
