That would be great. :)

The .swf is coming back either because we started using the embedded
TinyMCE or just because I forgot to exclude it in debian/copyright. But,
yes, it should be removed again. I suppose that upstream reintroduced
the SWF by accident too.

Not tried. Upstream is helpful (we don't interact much but they did make
the "GPL" release for us).

There is none. You can include with you think is useful.
Grief can take care of itself; but to get the full value of a joy you must
have somebody to divide it with.
