Hendrik, as you are still listed as maintainer for iceape, here is what
i suggest we could do to go forward:
- Clone iceape git repository (git://git.debian.org/pkg-mozilla/iceape.git)
- Put the new upstream in the upstream branch (don't forget to run
debian/remove.nonfree before) and create a clean tarball.
- Merge the upstream branch into the master branch.
- Commit your changes and fill in the changelog.
- run git gc
- Put the resulting git repository somewhere only so that I can pull
from it, and (obviously ;) ) give its url. A git server would be an
extra bonus, but http will be fine.
When that is done, I'll sponsor the upload, when time permits.
A last note for the package you ship, please prefer a version that is
less than the one there will possibly be in Debian some day (1.1.17-1a
is greater than 1.1.17-1 if there ever will be one)
