Nice catch, Guy.  Have you submitted this upstream?

Hi, there was a lot of talk on this mailing list quite recently about creating 
a new version of
gNewSense based on Ubuntu Feisty. I was just wondering if the plan is to have 
the next version based
on Feisty, or to have one based on Edgy (or another one based on Dapper) first.



Last I heard, and I may be quite wrong here, Brian and Paul were
waiting until Gutsy or the next LTS release simply due to the
resources involved (or lack thereof).

Gutsy may involve gNewSense, it may have not. I haven't heard anything
about Mark Shuttleworth or any employee of Canonical reaching out to
the gNewSense community--but take that with a grain of salt; there's
lots of ways to reach out where I wouldn't notice. :)
