Hi Alok,

the update for Intrepid should be one of the next bigger uploads to -proposed. 
There has been some delay due to urgent regression and security updates. The 
same applies for Hardy. I have been looking at them and they are prepared to be 
committed as soon as the security upload has settled a bit.
I have also prepared a patchset for Jaunty. Tim is travelling at the moment but 
I will meet him next week. So this could happen then.



When all other means of communication fail, try words!
