You've been added, and so has Hub since his username was right above
yours and I know he has some IT devices.

That is my plan at the moment - simply move the packaging out of the
main source tree, similar to how other distributions handle their
packaging outside of our tree. Basically, get the /debian directory
outside, and then also document the build process. I'd like to get the
packaging to the point where it can be updated and handled in the
"Normal Debian Way" (TM). We might also consider maintaining packaging
for less-common dependencies (new libgsf, enchant, etc)

I think the first thing that should be done is that an abiword-pkg
module should be created in SVN and the src/pkg/maemo stuff should be
transferred from AbiSource to the Garage repository in some way
maintaining full history. I see Rob has posted instructions - it seems
like to follow those we would have to move stuff around in AbiWord SVN
first. I'm not a SVN master, so I'd prefer that someone else with more
experience handle this part so I don't break anything.
