Hi Till,

Big question: Why limit this to just Ubuntu ?

Even better, lets get this into Debian proper as well as Fedora, 
openSUSE and Mandriva/Mageia. :)  I have contacts for distro packagers 
and desktop teams on all of the ones I mentioned.

My main purpose of this list was to support open source color management 
wherever we can, no matter what the platform. I think because of the 
solid participation of domain experts here we have seen real steady 

Thoughts ?
