For Debian, g-c-u needs a libgoffice-0.4 in unstable.  I have contacted
the Debian maintainer yesterday why it is still in experimental and hope
that this is solved soon.

Openbabel-2.1.1 should get released in the next days (maybe over the
weekend, if not further bugs are found) and will hopefully propagate to
gutsy quickly via Debian unstable.

If libgoffice-0.4 should not be available shorty after Openbabel-2.1.1
(or when UpstreamVersionFreeze is nearing), I suggested to Jordan that
Ubuntu take the current state of gnome-chemistry-utils in debichem's
subversion and upload that.  We could also just do this in a branch in
svn, preferably.

How does this sound?
