Was not aware of that, but I will have it in mind now.

Yeah I will, but I guess I'd better wait for gaim 2 to be stable instead of
offering some not yet stable package to edgy users.

Yeah, this is what I'm trying to do though, I started submitting 
packages to revu.
But it takes a while before packages get approved.

Submitting bug reports ....

I'm just offering package to people who want to try it at their own 
risk. Maybe I
should but a big warning on the repo saying that it might break some 
dependencies ...
on their system, and that people who do not feel confident with a linux 
system, should stay
on official repos.
