Hello Paul,

Jonas Smedegaard wants to do the packaging of x2go for the official
sources. There are several things which need to be discussed, but he
said - nothing would "really" prevent x2go on the long run (as we a
trying to work on the issues):

The "problems" are part of the nxlibs and they are:

* There is duplicate Code inside the nxlibs - in fact it is a whole xorg
server -> as debian tries to avoid duplicate sources, this needs to be
changed some time.
* There is code inside the nxlibs which is unmaintained. This is again
the xorg code which is outdated and again debian tries to avoid
unmaintained code.

Besides those two arguments I don't know about further problems but to
avoid licence "problems" a nx "redesign" should be more look like an
module for xorg.

If anybody sees any other arguments, please feel free to reply this mail.

best regards,
