     - replace-gdmclient.diff: Use gnome-panel-logout instead of gdmclient.
       => Disabled at the moment

   * Merge with Ubuntu:
     - debian/control, debian/rules: use python-central, gimmie crashes with

   * debian/gimmie.1: Add manual page
   * debian/menu: Use section Applications/Data Management instead of
   * debian/watch: Add watch file

I have adopted gimmie in Debian using the following process:
  1) Take gimmie from Debian
  2) Merge changes from Ubuntu
  3) Fix Bugs

The package is very different in some areas:
  1) Instead of building gmenu and sexy, the packaged versions are used
  2) Instead of building & using iconentry, the package uses sexy.IconEntry
  3) The modules & extensions are private.
  4) gnome-app-install is called without gksudo, as this is not needed.
