After a couple of days I've spotted a few things that don't work so well on Lenny:
gtk-gnutella is a client for a peer-to-peer filesharing system. Unfortunately the version of the client in Lenny dies on startup "This version is too old to connect".
The graphics program, The Gimp, doesn't show a live preview when carrying out things such as colour desaturation.
Although not an insurmountable problem it is moderately annoying if you do such things often.
So I've placed backported packages online.
I expected to have to backport KVM, and I guess I realised I needed a new kernel to match too. So they're available in the kvm-hosting repository; take the kernel with "birthday" in its name - the other is more minimal and has no USB support, etc.
Since I last reset the statistics the blog spam detector has reported, rejected, and refused just over half a million bogus comments.
It can and should do better.
I've been planning on overhauling this for some time; even to the extent of wondering if I can move the XML::RPC service into a C daemon with embedded lua/perl to do the actual analysis.
(Right now the whole service is Perl, but I'm a little suspicious of the XML::RPC library - my daemon dies at times and I don't understand why.)
I'd say "test suggestions welcome", but then I'd have to explain what is already done. If you're curious take a look at the code...
