This was the merge from the experimental-6.4.5 branch, I'm still new
using git, and it looks like I did not yet export the upstream tag

I want to give to the 6.4.5 version a try, at least for me the package builds
fine and looks nice I can not complain for it, but there are still some
issues there, first and I'm really concern(maybe too much) about some
files that have an obscure license, I'll contact debian-legal to clear
out some issues about this files (They are noted on TODO.Debian).

Also, I started to move the `scripts' dir form the svn repo to git.
Now I'm a kind of stuck there trying do a sort of 'svn export' similar
to the one on the get-orig-source target, the export-boinc script needs
some tweaks at this moment, for example delete the CUDA things that Thibaut
already points.

After that, The 6.4.5 may could be ready, and we could get rid off
#504616 :)

About 6.6.X version, I you can create a branch for it, and give the
package a test, IMHO after 6.4.5 hits unstable at some point we could
start with 6.6.X versions over experimental.

But have the branch there and maybe have 6.6.X series over experimental
could be a good idea :)

yes, you should create a branch based on experimental-6.4.5 or
experimental, since now have the same now (experimental-6.4.5 will be

At this moment I did not touch the server branch, and IIRC it was just
the debian/experimental branch with some minor changes.
I thing that this should be merged with your new experimental-6.6.X

thanks to you, and hope you get some free time at some point and help
again here, but for now enjoy your OpenMoko and have fun :)
