Thanks Derek, you gave me EXACTLY the reply I wanted.  Folks on
the Ubuntu list are wondering if/when we will see updates for Feisty.
Some are concerned that the developers have already left it behind
since the next release has been announced.  Others have said that
Feisty is completely up to date.  I quoted your reply as proof of the
contrary.  I understood what you originally stated but was hoping for
the reply you sent the second time - it was worth it.  Believe it or not
Debian packages do not always work on Ubuntu.  I will roll my own
if necessary.

again - tnx
