Bug#599715: unblock: qimageblitz/1:0.0.6-2

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: freeze-exception

Please unblock package qimageblitz

Well, frankly there is nothing release important about this update. Regardless if
you unblock this package or not, just close this report and I won't bother you
again about this topic. But nevertheless it would be great to have 1:0.0.6-2 in
squeeze because:

1) current qimageblitz package in testing is the same as in lenny. Packaging is
rather archaic and uses outdated KDE team packaging practises. It would be
great if we didn't have to deal with old cruft for the next 2 years. That's the
main reason why this new revision has rather many packaging touches all over
the place. But there is nothing ground breaking there;

2) despite upstream version bump, upstream changes are really minimal and
basically limited to small build system fixes. There are no changes to symbols
and 1:0.0.6-2 has symbol file based on 0.0.4 hence 0.0.6 has no effect on
shlibs at all;

3) I had the package ready on 2010-07-28 [1]. But I'd waited for almost two
months for upstream to officially release the 0.0.6 tarball which I generated
based on their VCS tag. Hence the delay;

4) the package has already spent 20 days in unstable [2]. No new problems were
