Manuel, who wrote ap2, has been very busy working on his diploma. He
finished it a couple of weeks ago and is on holiday for a few weeks. He
then plans to start work on ap2 again and hopes to maybe be ready for
the Sarge release.
I have been very busy with OpenOffice in Debian and have not spent much
time on ap1. I did actually make modifications to fix the above
problem, but ended up breaking other parts and abandoned them.
ap2 didn't get uploaded as promised earler because there was a serious
problem, where downloads would simply hang without reason. I was not
able to find a problem in the ap2 code and Manuel was too busy to look.
In fact, it was probably a problem in either twisted or python, because
it now seems to work well with the current unstable and python 2.3.
One of us will make some packages available soon; until then you can
try it out by building a package based on a checkout from CVS.
