Hi Holger and others,

NB! Please cc me currently - I am subscribed to the list, but either it 
is slow to deliver currently or something else is wrong.

I commented on your mail below the quote...

Better do this instead:

1) Duplicate contents of README.Packaging on some wiki page

2) Update wiki page with above hint

3) Add README.source Or is it capital Source?), pointing to wiki page

4) Drop README.Packaging

I agree that we should only release packages working with 0.82 release 
of Sucrose.

I do not agree that we should avoid activity releases newer than 
upstream releases, as long as they work properly with 0.82.

What made you resolve Calculate 0.25 as belonging to Sugar 0.83?

No, I have not yet released 0.25-1, as it turns out there are more 
problems. I suspect your 0.23-2 release also is broken[1]!

I really would appreciate if you'd warn here on the list _before_ 
releasing. Now you force me to reprioritize my evening :-/

[1] Yes, it was broken before too, but in a way that a simple symlink, 
or a tiny Python hack as applied to Ubuntu, could be used as workaround.
