Yes, I agree.

I assumed it wouldn't be a huge deal, luckily I was right :)

Yep, I'd like to avoid introducing bugs, or really anything more than
minor tweaks as well.
Speaking of bugs, I'll explain a bit about Debian's bug tracking system
(assuming you're not familiar as you don't run Debian) and how bug
reporting on the gallery Debian package may work.
When a Debian user finds a bug in a piece of software that is packaged,
most times they report the bug to Debian. This will send a bug report to
the bug tracking system at http://bugs.debian.org, and will send me an
I'll take a look at the bug, if it's a packaging problem I'll deal with
it. If it's a bug in gallery, we should come up with a plan. I could
forward it to the sourceforge bug tracking system (and mark it forwarded
in the debian bts). Or would you rather I forward it to a mailing list
(-users? -devel?) ?

I submitted an initial version to unstable/sid today. It'll be within a
week to get the new package added (it has to be done by hand). Then, if
it goes 2 weeks without getting a Release Critical bug filed on it, it
will get copied into testing/woody.
Woody is currently gearing up for release, and a freeze on new packages
is coming, so I'm trying to get the package in asap so it can go through
the 2 week period and hopefully be a part of the next stable release.
If the above doesn't make any sense, I'm probably not giving enough
details :) Feel free to ask questions, or checkout http://debian.org/.
