[sword-devel] Packages .....

Hi there ....  I have just bought a new netbook and have installed 
Ubuntu 14.10 on it.  I installed BibleTime using apt-get.  The text 
display has to be seen to be believed.  At the start of each verse there 
is a string of (unicode?) characters.  I have been watching the Debian 
packaging list and noticed that almost all submitted packages have been 
rejected mostly because of Lintian errors.

For my own part, I'll build and install on the new computer, but the 
current state of play does bother me.  Existing Debian packages were 
broken, but Ubuntu still works, though badly.  I may be able to find 
time this Winter to try to do something but am not promising. Anyone 
know what's happening at the moment?

God bless,        Barry.
