I've put a newly built set of EXPERIMENTAL Debian packages of 1.7.3 from 
trunk at: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s748z00c3zxiupp/-SdnD2xcHR

If you can, (and are feeling brave) please test.  I've done a fair bit 
of testing, and I thing they are OK.  Points to note:  I have had to 
patch some of the utilities to meet Debian standards.  I could have 
broken some of them in doing so.  I haven't tested on a clean 
installation (with no Sword stuff).  Are there any unmet dependencies?  
Also, since I built yesterday, there have been some commits to trunk, so 
the packages won't meet the final release.

I won't be able to make packages of the final 1.7.3 until the end of 
May, but if I can have some feedback before then, it will really help.  
Please don't share the packages with folk who are not up to the 
technicalities: if you choose to do so, I won't want to help them if it 
breaks their installation!!!

God bless,        Barry.
