Thanks for your pointers Peter. I'll look into it.

I'm wondering where you got the information that the wacom-tools package 
in debian only got made recently. The version of wacom-tools got 
migrated to debian "testing" on 31-5-2006 already as I've found here:
Debian "stable" seems to be even further behind in version number. Is 
this what you found as well or am I looking at the wrong documents?

I'm asking because first I would like to know whether a sync with debian 
actually happens with the "testing" branch. Can it be any branch or is 
"testing" the rule of thumb to ask for inclusion? It would help me to 
make a case for exception if I have an estimation on what is too far 
stretched or what is reasonably acceptable.

Thanks again.
