Re: RFS: xnoise (2nd try)

Hello Alessandro Ghedini,

I tried to implement all your points. I reuploaded the packages to
debian mentors.

No, the library contains all functionality and is part of the xnoise
package. The /usr/bin/xnoise binary is only used to start the program.
Having the program in a library allows me to do more automated

done. nice to have that redirector.

Thanks for testing!
