Bug#116937: LKCD ITP status ?


I have been working on this, it has been difficult because the
repeated attempts to get information about which version of what
corresponds to what in the LKCD file-structure, had up until recently
been met with no answer. In addition I was out of the country for some
time, this caused some email back-loggage that I have been clearing

I have begun a correspondance with Suparna Bhattacha and we have both
decided that the CVS tagged version is probably the best version to
actually package. I believe that I will be able to develop this
relationship with him and through this be able to get this version
packaged now.

There are a few remaining issues left to be decided (such as how to
deal with the different versions between 2.4 and 2.6, separate
packages?), and if others are interested in helping facilitate this to
completion, I'd be more than happy to work with someone to resolve
these issues the right way.
