Re: RFS: albumshaper - a drag and drop photo album manager

Hi Laszlo,

Ah, now i get it. The problem is that i did what you said in this and
the second mail (i made the configure executable, i did chmod -x on
files where the x shouldn't be, i deleted
src/gui/editing/.#selectionInterface.cpp.1.20, ...). But the problem
seems to be that this kind of changes to the original source were not
passed to you. The albumshaper_2.0-3.diff.gz does not make it right? I
thought i was supposed to leave the original sources just as they came
from the upstream author, but should i also make a tarball of the
sources adjusted by me? Those build cleanly, and putting the
albumshaper_2.0-3_i386.deb through lintian/linda really gives me no
waring, no error. Or is there another way so that you can patch the
orig. sources with really ALL the changes i did?

BTW i put the -sa option to dpkg-buildpackage, could this cause the

Please, put some light on this for me :O)

As for the DD, right now i can't imagine how much time i'll be able to
dedicate to debian in the future, for now i can only confirm, that i'll
do my best to keep the albumshaper package in 100% state for a long
time. I don't know if it's sufficient amount of work to become a DD :O)
But perspectively, i'd like to contribute more to free software
comunity, i'd like to become a DD.
