[Pkg-amule-devel] Ubuntu bug #486255 aMule

there's already a bug about it in the Debian bug tracking system:

it's been forwarded upstream since years, and I'd really like them to
take a decision, since having a common directory on all the
installable architectures would be the ultimate goal.

Now upstream has some organizational problem, so I'd advise to contact
them in order to put some "pressure" on the resolution and wait for
their decision on the matter of visible directory.
