Hello all !
I have two pieces of news for you: one good and one bad.
First, for now more than a week, jalview is part of Debian ! Thanks to all of you who helped me achieve that. You may be interested in the following pages, which are the so called package tracking pages of the various (source) packages jalview is made of in Debian:
On these pages, there are a couple of links that may interest you more than other:
* The bugs box on the right. Some of those may be Debian-specific (i.e. blundering from my side) or packaging-specific (which is probably of no interest to you).
* The popcon link is the popularity contest in Debian, ie the number of Debian users that have installed jalview. For now, there's hardly anyone, mostly because jalview is in the experimental suite, because it was built against a 'development' version of jmol.
Some time later, jalview will automatically be imported by Ubuntu, and you'll be able to find similar statistics there, although I can't give you a direct link, I'm aware of none for the time being. You can just look at the raw popcon data at popcon.ubuntu.com.
This leads me to the bad news: jalview is fresh but already broken. Debian now ships jmol version 12.2.2 (that's the stable release, isn't it ?), and jalview doesn't build against it.
Although I could tackle porting to the newer jmol, I guess it won't take much time to you. I'm attaching the build failure log in case someone wants to have a look. If no one steps forward, I'll give it a try ;-)...
Cheers, and thanks again !
