I would for starters file an RC bug to the version in experimental so users know this before it gets installed (thanks to apt-listbugs). This would also make the bug more visible. Then I guess it's either provide patches upstream or wait for a fix :-/ > 3. The showfoto internationalized docs are missing due to an upstream bug > .

We still have time before the freeze, do you think a new upstream release will happen during this timeframe? Else it could be an upstream snapshot. Thanks a lot Steve! -- Those are my principles.
