To be honest, I tend to agree with Troy about Debian's behaviour. If I 
need to update for a later release it doesn't take a huge amount of work 
to re-make the patch assuming that some of the patched files have 
changed.  Unless you really think I ought, I'm not going to bother to 
submit the patch.

Actually, I posted thinking that David was referring to my post and not 
the other one.  The patch was attached for information.  Since making 
the Sword 1.7.3 packages, I've installed from these packages into a 
clean Debian build environment and successfully built the current 1.10.0 
BibleTime within that environment using that installation, so I can say 
that the library and devel packages are OK.

Packaging BibleTime is going to take a bit longer.

God bless,        Barry.

God bless,
