The official repository is now the one on github [3], I contacted 
Tristan Slaughter a few month ago and asked him to pull my changes 
around that time I also asked on this mailing list that launchpad should 
synch from github instead of sourceforge.

Also the current code is not tagged it is ready to be used. I have been 
using this very code since a few years now on my laptop. If you look 
closely the changes on github from lanoxx have been merged five month 
ago, but are infact much older. So the best thing would be to just 
package it and deliver it, despide the fact that its not tagged.

I have CCed Tristan Sloughter. Tristan, maybe you could make a release 
so it can be packaged and shipped in the next Ubuntu version?
