While I join you in commending the maintainers for persisting longer than upstream, the only change I see that is not purely cosmetic in essence is the fix to #340019 (correcting the protocol for streaming over HTTP). Even more puzzling than why one would consider the risk of compromising a supposed production system for one minor update to the same CVS snapshot is why one would even run a program for entertainment on a production system in the first place. That's what I am curious about. -- Alex Nordstrom http://lx.n3.net/ Please do not CC me in followups; I am subscribed to debian-user.
