Hey Martin,

Rufus and I are preparing to release KForge 1.0 (and Domain Model 0.6) 
and wondered whether you would like to help with updating the Debian 
packages you kindly created last year?

The dependency on the SQLObject has now been improved; KForge is now 
compatible with a range of SQLObject versions, including the latest 
stable release (0.10.4), and the version shipped with Lenny (0.10.2).

KForge now works with both Django 1.0 (on Lenny) and Django 0.96 (on Etch).

Of course, if we can also support Ubuntu that would be wonderful, but I 
don't know what extra is involved.

Hope you've been keeping well.

Best wishes,
