    "Xdefaults", despite the name, doesn't exist per default. As a matter of fact we don't want it either! The proper choiche is rather "Xresources" (apparently this goes for Debian based systems)....

    Request: knights

    Would it be possible to backport "knights" from Breezy (universe; 0.6-3build1), even though it is not part of Hoary? (knights is a KDE chess interface.) If so that would be great!

    Does this have any (good) implications on the version update once Breezy is out?
