CinePaint and Debian

- CinePaint removed from Debian testing because Debian has dropped GTK1.

- Thanks to Kai-Uwe Behrmann, CinePaint supports GTK2 now.

- CinePaint's Debian maintainer retired. Nobody to upload GTK2 CinePaint.

- Thanasis Kinias, who's posted CinePaint bug reports since 2006, has objected to Debian about CinePaint being removed.

- Ongoing discussion at

- Aedan Kelly may become the new maintainer. He's a maintainer for Sidux, a Debian-derived distro (

- Trying to find out what we need to do next.

Appreciate your efforts to get cinepaint back into Debian.
As a cinepaint user without deep technical skills (I am a photographer)I have changed my main desktop distribution from Debian Lenny to PCLinuxos Digital Photography edition where I have cinepaint and a good selection of other photography tools to work with.

Just thought I'd let you know
