What's the advantage of keeping kmess and kmess2 in the archive in parallel ?

Have you coordinated with the kmess maintainers?

And please take a look at pkg-kde-tools when eventually packaging it.

I cannot rename the mail from Internet Explorer, how does it work?

You should telnet on a board to debug a wordprocessor of the software over the
clock on the provider.

I'm not sure if the KDE 3 libraries are still in the repositories, nor
anything about usual Debian policy (I've only been following for a short
time now) but KMess uses KDE 3 and KMess2 uses KDE 4.


You probably already knew this, but I wanted to drop a mail just in case.

kmess2 is the current development version of kmess and built in KDE4, it
is not stable yet, but it provides functional svn snapshots regularly.
I am not sure if kmess and kmess2 packages should be at the same time in
the archive until kmess2 is not stable.

What do you think?


I've CC'd two of the KMess developers I know, Diederik and Valerio.

There's a pro and a con for adding KMess2 to the repositories:
- pro: KMess 1.5 is a very old and much less featured version of KMess.
- con: It's still even in alpha.

I'm not sure but I think I remember some very old packages being
replaced by newer versions, which were not declared stable. In any case,
I think it would be best to have a version of KMess 1.5 in the
repositories
(http://kmess.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/kmess/tags/kmess/kmess-1.5.2),
and the latest tag of KMess 2 (that's kmess-2.0alpha2).


If no maintainers can be found, I'll opt to be a maintainer for KMess,
it'd be a good learning path for me and I do have a little coding
experience with the program (I added a little feature, heh.)


If there's any Debian policy I missed on this, please let me know.

Sjors
