Thats great, I have been able to merge and keep Beagle building fine
(atm) but what I really need right now is someone to test the new
build (and make appropriate revisions where needed). I already have
started to merge in some pending/conflicting changes from 0.2.18, and
that should be done soon.

Thats all we/I really need, I think between the 2 of us we can
probably stay on top of this. ;)

Once I have the 0.2.18 changes merged and the buildpatches updated,
I'm gonna probably need some help with the approval process, it always
takes forever, and generally because of dumb small things that are a 1
line fix, + 20 minutes of repackaging/building/testing for each
iteration. That's the phase I'm gonna want/need the most help on. The
red tape of getting a package into ubuntu after the freeze is
extensive enough that you don't want to do it unless you really need
