   Great to hear we will have a revamp extra-fr package Clod.

   On the note of sound packages. I noticed that when a new sound package is 
released the checksum of all the sound file changes. I guess this is because the 
packages are rebuild from high sample rate "source" sound files.

   This makes it impossible to track changes inside the sound package. i.e. know 
which sound file changed.

   What I would like to see is either that only the changed files are 
regererated so that using checksum compare we can know which files changes.

   Or that a text file. kind of a changelog, be included in the sound file 
packages showing which file changed with maybe an explanation.

   Might be a good idea to move the sound version control to svn...
