Thanks. Yeah, I've missed licenses in some packages (as far as I could
tell, dsss and libtango[-svn]), but I'll fix those later. The other
big mistake I routinely make in my packages is having redundant
package descriptions... like "foobar - foobar is a ...". I'll replace
with install too, but right now libtango doesn't build because the
latest compiler broke it.

Yeah, I hope no-one disagrees with me putting dmd in community later.
No-one but Geoffroy seemed to reply to the dmd question thread that I
posted earlier, so I'm assuming there won't be any problems with that?
