Were does the source files lives nowadays? The cvs seems to be unused since
months, and there is nothing on svn.debian.org. I seem to remember of you
guys leaking some arch files in the package, once upon a time, but where
could I find this?

I am voluntering to sort some out of those issues, but without access to the
code, it will be cruder. I will certainly NMU if I have to, but I would
prefer a cleaner way...

Bye, Mt.
