I have delayed work on that as I have been waiting for a notice from  
you about a Kiwix release we can package.

@Vasudev: I think we should not try to fix the upstream version we  
have in Debian unstable with patches etc. We need a new upstream  

@Kelson: can you provide an upstream release within the next 8 weeks?  
If not, I will request a removal of Kiwix from Debian, until we have  
some code that works well with latest package situation in Debian
