Thanks for the replies. I just had to learn something. Anyway, about the
"hijacking", well, that's why I said "candidate". I sent Robert an email
and got no reply, I hope I'll get one some day :) (I named it
gaim-snapshot because I didn't want by any means mess with "gaim").

And I don't want it to be uploaded now, I have pretty much 5% experience
in packaging .deb's, I just asked for information for a
*might*be*candidate* package, and I got some, thank you!

Thijs, I am trying to fix the issues now.
