If you have another e-mail address that is handier for you, please let
me know (perhaps in private mail).

Ok, no problems.

Well, I see that you have been quite busy (well, I am also quite busy
right now, with many lectures), but I would like to get ppower4 in
Debian proper, just to make a few things easier.
You mention that your schedule is tight. Perhaps you'd appreciate a
team-maintainance of the package? I think that we could put it under a
Subversion repository, say, at svn.debian.org or at developer.berlios.de
(I have an account on both).
Also, more frequent releases would be nice, to track the fast pace at
which the Open Source Java implementations are working.
One thing, BTW, that I should mention is that ppower4 is being excluded,
in its current form, from some distributions (say, the texlive
distribution for Debian that Norbert Preining is working on) exactly due
to the fact that we don't have the sources for generating the program.
Thank you very much, Rogério Brito.
