Darwin's Nightmare

It's been a long time I haven't been to a cinema. I was glad my best friend Michel asked to see Darwin's Nightmare. I can't find words to describe what I saw, maybe a pointer to a London Film Festival article is better. You'll read a phrase from the director: 'It is so incredible that wherever prime raw material is discovered, systematically the locals die in misery, their sons become soldiers and their daughters are turned into servants and whores.'

Little steps about tomcat5 in Debian

I'm still working (slowly?) to have tomcat5 in Debian. There are two stoppers I'd like to work on quickyl: libservlet2.4-java and libcommons-el-java. The first is embedded in the tomcat5 sources and it's a problem because the second relay on servlet2.4 api to build and tomcat5 needs commons-el to build (and servlet2.4)! So I have to separate the tomcat5 source package and extract servlet 2.4 api (jsr154) and jsp 2.0 api (jsr152) to make it a separate package. Once this will be built and uploaded, I'll build libcommons-el-java (with this new servlet api) and I'll investigate the tomcat5 package a little more.
