Hello Martin,

the diff was totally broken so i copied the upstream source in another
directory with the debian directory and build it.
then there was no other diff file :(

i think the most users use official debian mirrors?

yes, that is a good idea, i'll think about it.

for packaging debian packages?
yes, i read the debian new maintainers guide, the policy, a few
tutorials and the important parts of the developers reference to pack
the program.
was it that what you mean or have i misunderstood you?

i'd be glad to become an official debian maintainer, but i think the way
is very hard and i don't really know where to start.

oh :(

why do you compare it with kde programs? it is a text based program and
i hate kde.
