By CCing pkg-gnome-maintainers I assume you wanted the Debian GNOME team
to provide some feedback on this.

Let me note, that we already have tomboy itself in the archive
(maintained by the mono team), then gnote (maintained by the GNOME team)
and bijiben (maintained by the GNOME team).

I don't think there will be a huge interest by the GNOME team to
maintain yet another note taking application. Especially since tomboy-ng
doesn't seem to provide a proper build system and is written in Pascal,
and I don't think anyone in the team has experience with that language.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
