'wishlist' is a severity in Debian, these are actually bugs.

Which one ? which package ? why is there no patch in this list to
provide us some help ?

There are already 2 official unofficial packages released on this list,
made by Toots and me (thus by the Team), you can use and test to help
us have a final package. *nobody* replied to my demand, and i'm not
happy with the current 1.5 package quality, that's why it was not
uploaded, not even in experimental.

Once upon a time, i was maintaining an unofficial 1.4 package ; there
now a team, and a proper 1.4 package. Things went slowly into shape, but
here they are. Among the team, only Toots and I are working on the
packaging, and among the readers of this list there ni *no*
tester / helper. You all want stuff done perfectly and are not even
thinking about giving some help, then i come to the conclusion i'll
release a package when i'm happy with the package quality and people
complaining can go to hell directly.

Next messages of this kind will now be moderated and dropped.
