Hi Sven!

And I should say that I'm a bit stupid, because I forgot my patch.

Actually, the story took another road: people involved in 
packaging CL software for Debian decided to avoid Debian native 
packages, as you can read from the cl-debian mailing-list archive, 
please refer to posts [1] and [2]. As an example, the same happens 
to cl-rfc2388 (Debian bug [3]).

Finally, I'm really sorry to have forgotten to write you back, in 
order to cancel in some way my patch. So, could you revert it, 
letting s-xml as a _non_ Debian native package, please?

And please excuse me again for the confusion.

I read your post to s-xml-devel and I'm planning to package a new 
s-xml for Debian (as I should update it to the latest Debian 
policy). But I'm a bit busy at university until mid-September :-(

BTW, s-xml is already included in Debian testing ;-)

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
