Orage 4.7 - Debian | Questions & Comments

Greetings, hopefully the DM for orage watches this mailing list, as I
noticed that orage v.4.7 isn't even in unstable yet, and it'll take
about a week or two to get into Squeeze after that. Anyone have any
idea of when xfce 4.7, and specifically orage 4.7 will find its way
into debian?

I'm using 4.6.2 and was going to file a bug (wishlist severity)
against orage asking for the ability to set default days to view in
advance for the daily/weekly views, so I'm very excited to get my
hands on 4.7 which according to the documentation already has these
features! In addition, the ability to omit dates - woot!

Quick question about creating appointments: When setting a birthday
the default action is to repeat forever. Does this use less resources
than setting it for say, 10 years? I'm talking in terms of file size
and responsiveness, because I've started to notice a bit of a delay
drawing the calendar window when unhiding the calendar for the first
time (starts hidden on fluxbox, and a keyboard shortcut toggles
view/hidden). The only change I can think of recently is that I've
added about 20 birthdays and anniversaries set to repeat forever.

I was also going to file a bug report against the current Debian
package, as it claims xfce-panel is a dependency, but really it should
be a recommends, since it *appears* to run just fine without the panel
running. Panel is installed, just not running. It's kind of important
on fluxbox, as the panel pulls in hal, which wasn't installed before
installing orage.

Thanks for reading this rambling misc. email.
