Indeed. Hopefully, the reference documentation + a few lintian checks
should help getting every package in line.

Alright, and since Julien suggested we keep it, I'll do so.

I've started preparing input drivers locally. Stuff committed on top
of what's in debian-experimental, then merged into
debian-unstable. It's going nicely for now, video drivers should

Hopefully, 1.9.4 is out in less than a week, ditto for squeeze, so
that'll be time to upload 1.9.4 (with new packaging-related features)
to unstable, along with the drivers I'm preparing.

In case 1.9.4 is delayed, I might have to change the build-dep to
xserver-xorg-dev (>= instead, so I'll probably only push
stuff right before uploading.
