I looked at it, but it contained nothing I needed, and much I didn't.
(In particular, it didn't suggest any solutions to any of the
non-trivial issues I encountered, such as the simgear shared library
stuff.) Except, I suppose, that I probably would have gone with an
unversioned build-dependency on cmake if I hadn't seen yours.

I haven't seen more than one message from you here.

However, I've been very busy the past semester at university, and
haven't really begun to catch up before now. I might have missed something.

Anyway, my plan was to first update the package a bit to 2.6.0, to quilt
format, etc, then take a look at bug reports etc to see whether there's
anything extra to do before upload.

And since upstream has switched from cvs to git, perhaps I should also
look into migrating the packaging to git as well, not sure yet. It might
not be a good idea in the case of fgfs-base - for that,
svn-buildpackage's ability to merge the packaging with a separate source
tarball automatically, is quite convenient.
