I prepared another package:

1) set version to 20081215, the last commit to tools/env/ [1]

2) add a NEWS.Debian file, now fw_env.config requires a fifth parameter

3) add newline to EOF for qnap_ts101.config (this is mostly an aesthetic
   change, but it disturbed me...)

4) add openmoko_gta02.config, which I successfully tested [2]

5) imported the Debian package into a Git repository at [3]

Timo, can you confirm that the new package works as well, please?

Before uploading (I will *not* upload a source NMU), there are at least
the following two issues to be fixed:

a) check that it works on other devices (QNAP, Kurobox, etc.); I cc:ed
   Martin Michlmayr, who uploaded the last version and I guess still has
   some U-Boot-capable devices

b) finalize the debian/changelog and debian/NEWS entries

Per, Martin: I am not a boot loader expert, but uboot-envtools will be
used by the Debian-on-Openmoko installer, thus I can help in maintaining
the package as well as sponsoring, if needed.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
