Hi Sebastian (and fellow Multimedia maintainers),

i'm one of the hydrogen developers and saw that you've uploaded some recent versions of hydrogen to debian unstable. I'm really happy to see that hydrogen is now well maintained in debian and ubuntu, big thanks for this!!

Thanks a lot for the kind words. And thank you for for making it possible at all to distribute with Debian: by writing the program in the first place :-D

I'm writing you because of two things: The first one is more a notice :) We've just released hydrogen with some new bugfixes... The second: Your package description seems to be based on 0.9.3 and contains some wrong statements. Hydrogen 0.9.4 is based on QT4, not QT3. Furthermore, we support jack, alsa, oss and portaudio as a backend, not only oss and jack (as the description might suggest).

Thanks for the suggestions!  I am building an updated package right now!

The Debian packaging of Hydrogen is maintained in a team. Please help keep the spirit high in the team, by not posting to me privately but instead use the Generic contact address: hydro...@packages.debian.org

Or even better: File bugreports! Yes, the term is a bit misleading, because it is not only for bugs but also feature requests. If you already use Debian (or Ubuntu or some other derivative) then I recommend using the commandline tool "reportbug" found in the package by the same name. Alternatively see how to file bugreports through email here: http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting

If you don't know about it already, you might be interested in this page: http://packages.qa.debian.org/h/hydrogen.html

Also note how on that page you can subscribe to the package - which means you receive a copy whenever someone files a bugreport against the package, og posts to that generic email address I mentioned earlier: hydro...@packages.debian.org .

I have taken the liberty to cc our mailinglist to share this conversation with my fellow maintainers. Hope you don't mind.

Kind regards,

 - Jonas
