The last update has unfortunately introduced a severe regression. That
bug was upstream, but that's hardly an excuse since I am upstream too.
In the mean time, I have lost contact of my sponsor (no answer from
emails and IRC), and haven't been able to get a new on debian-mentors.
miredo is awesome. I'm firstname.lastname@example.org and paulproteus on IRC and

Hey! Looks pretty good. A few questions:
* What's with the patch to src/main.c? It'd be nice if you'd explain it in
debian/changelog or something.
* What's the regression that "upstream" introduced that you were concerned
* Have you tried building it in a clean pbuilder? That doesn't work for
me. Here's the log:

So I guess you're missing a build dependency. Weird, though, since it
looks more like autoreconf is the one missing the build dependency?
If you'd like help with any of this, e.g. setting up a pbuilder, let me
