Unbelievable ! Incredible ! The dream comes true !

After nearly four months of efforts, the big first group of packages
to update is now released !

I just uploaded the whole set in the unstable repository.
Big thanks to every packagers involved !!

I hope this is the last time we have this kind of migration thanks to
direct binding.

However there are still some glitches:
 - the dovecot package depends on both openssl 0.9.8 and openssl
1.0.0. Jake do you know the reason for this ?
 - the gnomeprint package now triggers an error with checkpkg (I don't
understand why as it worked before) and during recompilation it now
asks for a more recent libgnomecups (this is dark magic ! I suppose
something changed in the build environment). I am currently fixing
 - the gthumb package also tiggers checkpkg errors because of a
modification in the name of the libgnome and libgnomecanvas I think.
Carsten, could you have a look at it ?

Of course, it doesn't mean the migration is finished, there a lot of
remaining package but most can be uploaded independently, which makes
things easier.
I will soon post an update about the status of these packages.

Best regards,
