I have done the work in debian/unstable anyway because I thought we
could easily move it to debian/experimental when/if needed. The new
libsoup is in experimental, but not in its final form. I believe we can
upload there by now, but it getting ready will take some time, since it
now has a new -gnome package, which depends on libproxy (in NEW).

I think it makes sense to have the package split now, because we may
have more data addition in the future, such as custom graphics and html
pages for error messages and such.

Oops =). I blame my bad copy/pasting to my mind being slowed down by
messing with debian/copyright hehe. I'm leaving for Bossa Conference
today, but I'll work on fixing this mistake and moving the branch to
debian/experimental if you want on sunday or monday, from there.

Other thing we need to decide is what to do with the new GNOME Keyring
support added to the http basic auth password storage. Do you want to
build a -gnome version of the library, so that others can keep depending
on the "pure" version?

See you,
