I finished integrating the code to auto-detect the iPod via HAL/Gnome2::VFS. I still need to test the VFS cleanup – making sure there are no leaks and whatnot. I also need to tackle automake/autoconf, or whatever it is that supplies ./configure and such. I’m not sure how I’m going to handle dependancies yet. libgnome2-vfs-perl in sid isn’t new enough. The latest version, along with Gnome 2.8, still sits in experimental.
I think for now I’ll worry about the ./configure stuff and make a note in the install file. It’s fairly easy to install the latest libgnome2-vfs-perl and it shouldn’t impact anything else on the system.
