Hi Mario

The team is working to update BOINC in Debian. The delay it's totally my
fault because I asked to work with the boinc-client and boinc-manager

I hope to coordinate with Rene to work this weekend in the GIT
repository and if all goes well, upgrade these packages in Sid ASAP.

Thanks in advance for your interest in BOINC and Your help is very
welcome, especially after these upgrades to mark bugs as fixed with the
new versions and mainly to test these new versions.

Please keep in contact ;-)
