Dear Faheem,

I received multiple enquiries about ggplot2, and I am very sorry that I got
confused and forgot to answer to yours.

I am also very sorry for the state of this package.  When preparing the update,
I overlooked some of the new pakcages that need to be introduced, which added a
long waiting period to the process.  When they will be accepted in Debian,
ggplot2 will be updated a soon as possile.

Have a nice day,
