Yeah, that's a common first reaction to DEP5 format. Often what is really the case, however, is that more info is added, which written old-style would have been even less readable.
Or perhaps I have simply grown used to this new format, having worked on it for don't know how long - a couple of years, I think.
does anything need to be done about the FIXMEs?
Yes.After I stomped the topmost one about source URL (puredata.info was down earlier today, apparently), there are now 2 FIXMEs left.
Upper one is obviously a typo, so not a show-stopper. I would suggest you fix it upstream for your next release, though (if not claiming copyright in 22nd century is some artistic logo).
Lower one I would appreciate if at least you could clarify - just here as an email on this mailinglist, so we have it for the record:
Under which license do Winfried Ritsch license his contributions to src/sfplay.c?
debian/changelog looks also very good.
Ahh, thanks. I was worried you perhaps wouldn't appreciate it :-) - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
