bibledit and biblememorizer are independent of libsword7 and so should
go in fine?  Please?  I still don't know if we can get them synced  to
Jaunty in time, but we should probably try.

Packages with lintian warnings will *not* be accepted into Ubuntu via
REVU, from everything I can see at least, unless you get overrides for
the warnings.  Missing manpages cause a lintian warning.  The programs
the warnings mention are real programs that are indeed invoked by the
user directly, so asking for overrides seems unlikely to succeed.
Therefore, missing man pages will prevent REVU approval, to the best of
my knowledge.  Am I misunderstanding something?

I'm not sure how we can switch from packages that used to be synced from
Debian to ones that are going in via REVU in the final two days before
Feature Freeze.  We can try, but I don't know if we'll make it...

I also don't know if I'll still be on this continent a week from
today... which is making finding time for packaging very difficult right
now, unfortunately!  Tonight I reviewed (and corrected mistakes in)
about 40 pages of legal forms and papers which may help us stay, if we
can get them filed in time...
