Hello everybody,

the App Showdown is coming on nicely and there are many fantastic
submissions. One thing I thought I should let you know is, that it just
came to my attention that 'quickly package', which is the primary method
of app authors in the contest will overwrite

 - debian/copyright
 - debian/rules
 - debian/control

and thus revert DEP5 changes, disablement of dh_python2  (due to
.rtupdate bits), renaming of the apport crashdb file and other things.

Once app authors get into the "finishing touches" stage of things, we
might want to advise them to either give us a link to their bzr branch
or to upload to their PPA in a more traditional fashion (bzr bd; dput
../*changes, etc.)

Didier: is this correct?

Have a great day,
