CHasing me down is not so hard: Like you I joined the mc-mailing and aloith 
packaging team recently.

I have updated the Ubuntu package to 4.8.1 and got request to try and get my 
changes accepted into Debian. And that is how I joined here.

Any place where we all could see it? If zo, I'll compare whether any of my 
changes can be added or they already are included in your patch.
