Hi Luca,

Thanks for reply.  All advice is much appreciated.

First, few in-line answers:

I did not CC you, I actually sent the email to you (To: luca…) and
CCed the list.  This way, MUA or better web clients (like Gmail) can
mark the message as important as it’s directed to you.  Quite a lot of
mailing lists allows this kind of practice, but since you’ve been here
quite a while I take it’s not welcomed here.  I’ll change that :-).

Thanks, I’ve fixed that :-).

Yeah, makes sense.  I’ll get that changed, as well.

Not at all.  I’m quite new to Debian official processes and rules,
even though I’ve been building packages for my private repos for quite
a while (few years actually!).  I’ll appreciate any tips or pointers.

I’ve made the changes and created branch on Alioth as well as tagged
5.2.6+dfsg-1~bpo60+1.  Packages I’ve built from that tag are working
like a charm on all of my 12 servers (in next few months I’ll be
rolling out Bacula in my work place where there’s 200+ machines
that’ll be backed up).
I guess if you manage to fix that aforementioned bug, I’ll just merge
that commit with squeeze-backports branch, tag it again, test and
it’ll be ready for backports.d.o as soon as it reaches testing.

Thanks again!
