Don't have the time for that right now... maybe in a few weeks when I
have finished my exams I will try to do it. But looking at the
comments here I think it would be better to start with packaging some
simple app. Anyway I was just pointing out a piece of functionality
that is very important to a lot of people that is missing from Ubuntu
at the moment. Is there a better place to do that? There is no motu
mailing list right?
