Debian unstable needed? Re: new Debian packages of Gtk2 and friends

Hi everyone, I've recently found time to update my Debian packages. (and

Much thanks for doing this packages. They were my "first touch" with gtk-perl. And that's why I am writing here. IMHO we should make it as much easy and as little frightening as possible for new people to get familiar with gtk-perl. This is the best way to spread the word.

For me as an debian "sarge" user, "much easy and little frightening" is installing a dpkg. Thanks for doing this! But why are your packages "unstable" packages? It is not frightening to insert a new line in my sources.list, but... it will only work, if I also insert a line for debian unstable and install a lot of debian unstable packages. For my good old "sarge" system, this _is_ a bit frightening. Later I installed perl-gtk from CVS on a pure sarge system. It does work! So why have there to be dependancies to debian unstable?
