Swirly thing alert! MyPaint 1.2.0 now in Debian sid

MyPaint has been accepted into Debian:fish_cake:, ready for arty Debianistas to test the snot out of it. This is great news for people using Ubuntu, Mint, or other Debian-derived distributions too, because those distros pick packages from Debian during their release cycles.

Progress: http://packages.debian.org/mypaint

I didn’t even have to lift a finger to get it done! Looks like a keen Debian developer has picked it up for integration. That’s very welcome news for me at least, since I now don’t need to find somebody with upload rights and convince them to upload my packages. :smile: Better still, pieces of the the debianization I’ve been maintaining for the Ubuntu PPA got incorporated into downstream, just as I was hoping.
