  I'll check, I'm working on the packaging files for Debian now. Part of
my problem was the machine I was building on had odd versions of things
(as I upgrade every 6 months, install of a fresh install). So I'm
cleaning out the old crufty stuff and tweaking files on my karmic
machine. Maybe I can get my Debian build slave to boot.

  At one point the Debian packages for Gnash were up to date, I don't
know why they aren;'t now. Ubuntu stays uptodate with our current
versions, so it can't be that hard. I also barely have the time to
maintain packaging files, but do so because we fix so many bugs between
releases, it's often the only way (other than compiling from source) for
users to get version that work for them. I'd gladly work with whomever
is or can be a package maintainer to get the current release of 0.8.6
into Lenny.

  I thought that's what you were already doing.

  I tried a handful of those links at random with Gnash trunk, and they
appear to mostly all work. Maybe I'm missing something. Basing what
works or not on an ancient, seriously out of date release doesn't
accomplish anything.

  Well, we're seriously under-resourced these days, down to a small
handful of developers hacking part-time, and a mostly broken build farm.
:-( Everbody wants Gnash to be completely compatible, but almost nobody
seems to want to help us get there...
