Since it coupled all the old geda-* packages into one, I couldn't really
imagine how to merge them sensibly. I started from scratch.

Note that the new source package is "geda-gaf", matching the upstream
version. I hope this will be acceptable.



Ahmed pointed me at that earlier. He's done _a lot_ of work on the
packages I originally sent.

Offtopic: Gah.. Evolution seems to be doing a bad job of displaying the
RTL script in your name, Ahmed!

I get those glyphs at the very RHS of my CC list, next to
pkg-electronics-devel, not next to the correct address.

I'm not completely sure how it _should_ display, but I would presume the
correct thing is it displaying to the right of the associated email
address portion?

I thought GNOME, pango etc.. was supposed to be pretty at I18N and RTL
scripts - but this definately fails. (All sorts of strangeness when
pasting those strings too).
