There is currently no source code tarball for the latest 4.2 beta release of LDView. I want to package LDView for Debian and this is made much easier when there exists a tarball. The alternatives without a tarball are to:
create a package from a CVS revision. Besides that the version name looks ugly (because it includes a CVS revision number) and that the transition to a proper version (without a CVS revision) is hard I would also need the exact CVS revision you used for the 4.2 beta release
create a package from the last version for which there exists a tarball which is version 4.1 which is already four years old.
So to avoid these unfavorable options, can you please provide a tarball for the latest LDView beta release?
