Re: First steps in packaging

Of course. I actually still have a lot to learn of the package format

However, you're not that far yet, in that you probably don't have an
archive you can upload to. To get a package into Debian, it needs to
be sponsored, often by someone on this list.
Don't ask me how this happened. Only thing I can figure is that it's a
result of me trying out several different e-mail packages attempting to
find what I want to settle on. Trying to get away from Evolution due to
the constant problems with 3+ IMAP accounts freezing.
PS. Please be careful with your quoting. Your reply mistakenly
implied that I'd said the first paragraph, so I've re-attributed it.
Odd considering that so far most every reply that I've received (except
yours of course) included two copies. And the fact that you can't just
hit "reply" and have it go back to the list - it wants to only reply to
the sender. I'm surprised the list doesn't set the reply-to field.
PPS. Most people who read the Debian mailing lists are subscribed to
them. Mailing them as well as the list means they get two copies.
Being a cantankerous lot as a rule, we don't like this :)
