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 follow. 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 (>= 188.8.131.523) instead, so I'll probably only push stuff right before uploading. KiBi.
