Just in case someone is interested in announcements, there are a few
new packages in pkg-fso repository:

- literki, Keyboard with configurable layout and transparency,
- woosh, minimalistic browser optimized for touch screens,

Both are in my daily use as my main keyboard and main browser, so I
liked to share them with others as well. However, both may not be
suitable for Debian main repository at least as such.

Literki is a very new project with 3 commits all in all. Its main
problem is that it's bundled with png++ library, which would need
separate packaging. If anyone would be up to it, feel free to do that.
I think literki, even in its infancy, might be a nice addition to
Debian main repository. I don't think there are too many keyboards to
choose from.

Woosh seems to have quite dead upstream at the moment. Otherwise it
could be considered for Debian main as well probably, with some
packaging improvements. I would probably prefer Ventura / elm-browser
(http://code.google.com/p/elm-browser/) to woosh, but elm-browser
depends on webkit-efl
(http://trac.enlightenment.org/e/blog/webkit-efl-0.1) which is a
totally huge piece of software I have no interest in trying to compile
on my poor Neo.

By the way, would it be ok to remove om-hacks from pkg-fso repository
since it's in main already?
