taxbird & co: please provide updates via volatile
 
Hi,

I suggest that updates to taxbird and its dependencies are provided via
volatile.

Reason:

Users of taxbird have to comply with certain legal requirements, and
eg. Lenny's version of taxbird is unfit to create tax reports for this
year, while the version in Testing pulls in a significant number of
other (Gnome?) stuff, which I find undesirable.

I would therefore like to see taxbird updates via volatile, so that
users of Stable can actually use it during the lifetime of the release.


FWIW, I've created a (rough) backport that's available from my p.d.o
homepage.


Kind regards,
--Toni++

Why do you mail -devel and not taxbird@p.d.o or the maintainer or the bts?

I was unaware of the 'taxbird@p.d.o' mail address, and thought that
someone else than the original maintainer(s) should do the work.
