I reposted this message, as I thread hijacked the old discussion and I think my posting was killed automatically. Anyway, here goes:

Why is this not possible?


I discussed this with the Ubuntu package maintainer for gnokii-smsd, and I understand that I can go through a process called "Stable Release Update" and this will allow a later gnokii version to be added to the Universe repository. I was going to go through with this yesterday, but it sounds like I may need to backtrack and do more testing / bug reporting first - I don’t mind doing any of this if it gets a later gnokii version in the repo's.


I don’t know much about PPA's, but would be happy to help where I can. I shall get up to speed with what is required for this and see if I can get it happening.
