It's simple after you understand, but not before...

I should have read, but I didn't know to do that until you said the magic word.

So 3.0.1 is in intrepid, and also in hardy backports. What more can we want? Activating the backports would give you access to newer GRAMPS in 8.04

If a user downloads 3.0.3 from our website, such a dialog should not scare him, as she will know why she is downloading the newer version in the first place.

On launchpad, I once found a page that listed the top 5 package
requests for backport.

GRAMPS was on that page, though I no longer recall if it was #1, nor
can I find that page anymore.

Not much else we can do.


I did a little more checking and found that version 3 is in the Debian world -- .  A version 3 gramps seems to be part of "Sid" (unstable) and "Lenny" (testing).

I suppose Ubuntu is downstream from Debian, so one waits... quite a long time! When/if things get backported to Ubuntu Hardy is still a mystery to me.
