first of all: many thanks for your work! and you do not have to
apologize for the slow process. anyone complaining is more than welcome
to do that themselves.

besides that, as an active debian user, i would like to comment on your

heartbeat beta-2.99.2 is 3 months old. i suggest using a more recent
version/tag because there are some important fixes, at least for more
complex scenarios, since than. lmb recently tagged "sle11-rc3" - maybe
this is a good start? what about the the debian specific fixes that are
even more recent? [1]

secondly, there have been important fixes since pacemaker 1.0.1
releases. i, for example, am not able to run 1.0.1 without headaches :)
please, do not ask which fixes are the important ones (for me) - i
just know that i had to build my pacemaker from the than-recent sources.

so i would really like to see those packages in sid (and thus testing
and lenny-backports) and i guess that others would like that too.

if you need help with that, do not hesitate to contact me!

as i do not use the gui, i have no issue with that ;)

i would like to hear comments from the devs on this one - as far as i
remember, 2.1.3 (and .4) had some issues with "complex"
group/clone/stonith/colocation scenarios.

again, thank you for your work!
