it's about freedom. ;-)
Thanks for posting that! Kind'a what I thought I heard already, but
it's good to know they're thinking about future cross-platform
compatibility. Like everyone should be at this point.

Lastly, if you are genuinely aiming to get packages into Ubuntu, using IRC to talk to the MOTU folks who hang out in the #ubuntu-motu channel on irc.freenode.net is a great way to get your questions answered. I have found them to be friendly and helpful to people who (like me!) are genuinely trying to get software packaged for Ubuntu, or to fix issues in existing Ubuntu software. If you are creating packages just for your own use, or for a PPA, which you never intend to work on to good enough to go into Ubuntu, then it's somewhat impolite to ask for much of their time.There is also the Ubuntu-hams team as a resource. We have some people with some packaging experience, although not the level of experience that you find on the packaging-specific lists and IRC channels. There's a lot of collective knowledge about various ham applications for Debian and Ubuntu, so feel free to drop in.#ubuntu-hams on freenodeI'm a recent subscriber to this list, having just started on the Softrock Ensemble RX/TX board.73, Steve Conklin, A!4QR
