  With the release of Debian v7 (Wheezy), Debian Testing (now 'Jessie')
was unfrozen and LedgerSMB v1.3.25-1 has since migrated there as well
as over to Ubuntu. I am currently working on the packaging for v1.3.33.

   And perhaps v1.5 as well, depending on just when that version
actually becomes available.

   That being the idea of having the names of the package be versioned
in some way, like 'ledgersmb13' and 'ledgersmb14' (and 'ledgersmb12' for
the old v1.2 version, although I don't currently intend to try to
get that added to Debian directly). The existing 'ledgersmb' package
itself would become a virtual package.
