Hi Johannes!

Quickly reply, before the package reaches a too much wider audience.

Thank you!

This is wrong, sorry, because it will conflict if upstream will release
a 0.1.0 version.  I would prefer something similar to the
linux-2.6-openmoko package and indeed the Debian Git repository has an
upstream tag, 20090302.git451398a2:

  http://git.debian.org/?p=pkg-fso/xf86-video-glamo.git;a=tag;h=16b5d5811976df103796924809786a0a86a93e03

OK, based on the corresponding commit

  http://git.openmoko.org/?p=xf86-video-glamo.git;a=commit;h=b5eb5f79245bebe7857a4857dda996f82fecf5e5

the Debian package version should be 20090503.gitb5eb5f79-1.

This is exactly what I tried from the Debian Git repository above and
then I ended up with a compilation error.  I did not investigated
further because of lack of time, sorry.

Sure, do you want to co-maintain the package?

I would remove them ASAP, simply because the version problem is a
serious one IMHO.

Thx, bye,
