Hello Francesco,
You sent an email to "control@bugs.debian.org, 313183@bugs.debian.org"
on the 9 Jul 2007, but due to the way the BTS work, I did not receive
a copy (only the maintainer and not the submitter receive a copy and I
am not the maintainer of the wnpp pseudo-package). You should have CC'ed
me explicitly if you wanted an answer from me.

If you did not do it yet, I suggest you read the full log of bug #313183.

I missed the fact you changed the compat file because you did not
mention it in the changelog. It is very important to mention all change
in the changelog especially for sponsored upload.

I am glade to hear about someone using this packages because I no more
use eterm.  I am sure you can make much more meaningful contributions
than bumping the debhelper compat level.

It is important to understand the procedures in the developer references
document, the way the BTS works and the use of changelog.

If you propose a significant improvement to the package, I will
certainly reconsider the situation in a better light.
