The best I have been able to do was to update from 3.4p1-0.0woody1 to

Upgrading to 3.6.1p2-4 requires upgrading 32 packages, including the C
libraries and that is very risky. It would have to be done by someone who can
at least restart the server if necessary.

do you already have a username in Savannah and have submitted the public
key for your server? if you don't, please send me the public key and I'll give
you access.

We can schedule a meeting in #savannah at irc.gnu.org. When are you available?

and we'd be very grateful if you could solve the sftp issue which has puzzled
us for quite some time.
