The problem is, that there is demand from users to have the latest development versions available with debian-packaging. Having the debian directory in the upstream version is a little inconvenience for the developers, and a very less inconvenience for the maintainer (I assume), but it is a large convenience for many users. Personnally I am not a great friend of differences between developer and distribution versions, if there is no _serious_ reason. At least I see the necessity to have a co-maintainer for DRBD to avoid too large time lags. > I would assume some people are still more comfortable > using 0.6.x over 0.7.x, so we would want to keep both versions available. Maybe some users of Kernel 2.2.x or Woody want to have 0.6.x still available. But 0.7.x is more important and the release of 0.8.x is maybe coming within months (and not years). Helmut Wollmersdorfer
