You're really doing a good job!

It's just a feeling I get from problems with the mplayer that "comes with
the newest release of [*]", and quite often this is the 2007 rc2 version.
So I shouldn't have all package maintainers insulted that way. I'm sorry
for that injustice, and perhaps my feeling is completely wrong and most
maintainers keep their packets up to date.

Greets,
