[Pkg-mc-devel] [Bug 905610] Re: Update mc to version 4.8.1

FeatureFeeze Exception request

The reason:
- mc is very outdated and lots of bugs have been fixed between and 4.8.1
- On LP these bugs are fixed by the update: Bug #314614, Bug #410031, Bug #562361, Bug #632816, Bug #713630, Bug #770673 and Bug #837163. I confirmed all of these bugs with the current version and saw that are fixed with version 4.8.1

Notes on the attached files:
- changelog.diff it seems that they changed version numbers, the changes of 4.7.0.x are very similar the same as the ones in 4.7.4 (in the 4.8.1 NEW document). So the changelog.diff is not a 'real' diff.
- mc-4.8.1-build.log is the log for building for Precise (but it builds perfectly fine with Oneiric as well)

Performed tests:
I have tested all mc related bugs, with both the current version and 4.8.1. Not all bugs are fixed, the non-fixed bugs I could confirm. So I have tried quite some different parts of mc 4.8.1 and everything worked as expected.

Additional notes:
I will put mc-4.8.1(exactly the same as the one in the build log) in my personal PPA for easy testing.
