hi to all

maybe we should have a dedicated mailing list
(ubuntu-derivatives-devel :-) ) but anyway coming to the point of
discussion, I think I would:
- build my own repository
- build my package
- creating mydistro-desktop based on ubuntu desktop forcing the add of
the new created package

point is, if i rebuild gaim, how can i version it? i want my "gaim
package release" to be taken/upgraded only from my repository and not
from the officials...
