No, no earlier response from me is missing.

I simply got engaged with a bunch of other pending work.

Generally I have a hard time keeping up my spirit helping with this 
packaging - which you may have felt by my being quite sceptical by eny 
little detail in the packaging.

I really really want more developers to gain interest in packaging Sugar 
packages for Debian (and through Debian for all other Debian-derived 

Sugar is not my only passion, however, and when work is not fun I 
tend to move on to other more fun tasks.

With Sugar packaging, and particularly with your interest in Sugar 
packaging, I have several times recommended to start out with *simple* 
Sugar *activities*.

Rainbow is *not* simple, and is *not* a Sugar activity.

If you want to continue packaging this very relevant but not easiest to 
package piece of code, then please find other Debian developers to help 
you do it.  I want Rainbow in Debian, but want core parts in first, so 
only get frustrated working on it now while there are still low-hanging 
fruits pending.

I am still very interested in helping anyone packaging classic straight 
Python-based Sugar activities.

And I still welcome anyone to package whatever Sugar-related code that 
they want in whatever packaging style they want - just do not expect 
me to be very engaged in such efforts.

Kind regards,

  - Jonas
