I inherited this package and since the last update was a year ago, I would like
to pass this through a review.

> Any reason for not using latest tarball?

Version 1.40 (http://netdial.caribe.net/~adrian2/programs/fdupes-1.40.tar.gz) is
the latest stable release. However there are some preview releases, of which
is the latest. I have asked upstream when he plans to release 1.50 as stable,
and am yet to get a reply. Do you want me to use the 1.50-PR2?
Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-11-26 04:02:09 EST
Ok. Good to have stable tarball packaged then.
