The SVN snapshot gs-gpl package is available

Kevin Shanahan asked me to provide gs-gpl package based on the bleeding edge Subversion snapshot. Some of you might want it for your own enjoyment, too. At least I wanted it, since the merger of gs-esp/gs-gpl is now going on in the upstream (Kudos to Till Kampetter). So here it is. Add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://people.debian.org/~mhatta/debian/gs-gpl ./
deb-src http://people.debian.org/~mhatta/debian/gs-gpl ./

Note that this is really FOR TESTING PURPOSE ONLY, and you should use this with caution. Or, you might waste not only your precious time but also equally precious inks and papers ;-) Needless to say, do not report any bugs to the Debian BTS.

Also, I'll use this repositry to test the reorganization of Debian Ghostscript packages. Currently I plan to divide the current sumo gs-gpl package into several subpackages (like gs-gpl-x, gs-gpl-doc, libgs and so on). So, maybe I'll blow up and some dependency tangling or such will happen. You are warned.
