Yes; straight Debian.

Terrific.  Is unstable the place to look, or experimental, or somewhere

2.11.2 will end up in pkg-evolution's svn for sure. If we upload
binary packages, they will go to experimental.

That's a great tip.  I built evo from Debian source (with one fix) and
it took 45 minutes.  I clearly need a shorter route to trying out

I don't think you get around the initial build; you can feature strip
it to reduce the time. Once you've built it. make will figure out what
has to be rebuilt. A make && make install when I edit files in only
one directory takes about 5 seconds on my system..

Thanks for packing evo, and for making the -dbg files available.

You're welcome. Don't hesitate with questions on how you can use
packages or package scripts in your development setup..
