Dear Debian Pkg-e Team,

It is nice to see that you are preparing an update for the EFL and e17 packages. There are some things I noticed while looking at the 

The watch for the e17 package is still looking at the development snapshots, which is AFAIK the development version of e18. As e17 is released it would make more sens to change the following url
 - http://download.enlightenment.org/snapshots/LATEST/enlightenment-(.*)\.tar\.gz
in the debian/watch file into
 - http://download.enlightenment.org/releases/enlightenment-(.*)\.tar\.gz

Building the packages for Eet seems to fail, as eet_suite returns an error. Are you working on fixing this problem? I did not make an official error report, the packages are still  experimental. If you need more input I could provide you with a build log from my AMD64 system.

Playing with git-buildpackage and your git-tree for the eet package I found that there is no tag for upstream/1.7.4. This makes it a bit more difficult to build and update the package when using git-buildpackage. Is there a reason why this tag is missing? Other packages that you maintain seem to have the small properties.

Keep up the good work I am looking forward to the coming updates.

BTW, any change that other enlightenment related program/libs will be turned into debian packages, like terminology.
