Hi all.

Please unblock package xkeyboard-config

| xkeyboard-config (1.8-2) unstable; urgency=low
|   * Add revert-goodmap-badmap-for-apple.diff patch to make apple:goodmap and 
|     apple:badmap options available again. Some users are still affected by
|     this issue, so restore those options for now (Closes: #604671). Thanks,
|     Corsac, for reporting and checking the fix!

(The watch file update isn't mentioned in the changelog since it's just an
extra comment so that xfs-tools can easily add an upstream remote after a
debcheckout; that was done on all XSF repositories, and not mentioned in the
changelogs to keep noise level as low as possible.)

This may annoy some users which have traditionally kept a reference to the
badmap option in their configuration with non-buggy keyboard, since they will
suddenly have inverted keys (#604816); but I guess it's good for those to pick
the appropriate keyboard instead of keeping a reference to a dead option
anyway, so I don't think it's a big deal anyway.

Corsac also reported that the fix for the kernel isn't quite ready yet (see
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=604676#15) so I guess it
makes sense to push this revert patch into squeeze, on the xkb-data side.

  unblock xkeyboard-config/1.8-2

Thanks for your time.
