RFS: nedit (updated package)

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for the new version 1:5.6~cvs20081118-1
of my package "nedit" which I am adopting. Because upstream is slowly
working to a maintenance release, I decided to prepare an experimental
package using a cvs checkout of the beta of 5.6. I would appreciate it
when somebody takes the time to check out my packaging efforts (this is
my second debian package). I left out the create-orig rule in rules
because I want to package for unstable when the release is really
released. Please let me know when I need to include it to get it
sponsored for experimental. Also let me know if I chose the wrong name
for this version.

It builds these binary packages:
nedit      - powerful, customizable, Motif based text editor

The package appears to be lintian clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 499316

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/n/nedit
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- dget

nedit (1:5.6~cvs20081118-1) experimental; urgency=low

  * CVS checkout of 5.6 branch to experiment with upcoming release
  * New maintainer (Closes: 499316)
  * Adjusted short description (removed "A" at beginning)
  * Added patch system (dpatch)
  * Added debian/README.source
  * Checked original diff.gz changes (all implemented upstream or solved
  * Clean up of symlinks in Makefile clean rule (patch 01_CleanupLinks)
    debian/rules and changed Makefile.linux to use it because LessTif2
    version in Debian is considered bugged by upstream
    (patch 20_ChangeFlagsLinuxMakefile)
  * Updated debian/rules to use dh_install
  * Removed doc/README.FAQ (not relevant)
  * Build man pages from pod source to change name of NC in Nedit-NC
    (patch 50_ChangeNCinMan)
  * Created debian/nedit.desktop file and install it

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

Kind regards
