Thanks Robie,

I'd be happy to upload a new deb file, but I am not sure where I do that.
As it would appear I don't have that permission on the launchpad page:

Or, if it quicker (to meet the Thursday deadline) to be sponsored, that
would be great as well.

The Deb file is part of the sourceforge release:

I appreciate your help, if you could point me to the upload, or sponsership

thanks again,
