That's very good to hear ! So the move from subversion to git has been 
completed successfully (apart from having a cron-job do it at regular 
intervals, which we plan to do after summer break ;-)).

That would be much appreciated, especially if we can keep the upstream 
packaging and the Debian/Ubuntu packaging in sync.

We would like to focus on the Ubuntu LTS releases in the automated test 
framework as the most current Ubuntu (much like the most current Fedora) 
is a moving target and might introduce new technologies we might not be 
prepared for.

However Gratien is doing a good job tracking and fixing Fedora issues, so 
at some point I hope we can track new Debian/Ubuntu issues and get them 
fixed faster, thanks to this exposure.

Thanks !
