Hi Fons,

I offer to do the building then (also for later ROOT versions), but i need some advice.

For example i think a tag for 4.04/02 including the mentioned AfterImage fixes is in order.
I don't think its a good idea to offer 4.04/02 deb files from the ROOT page which include patches only documented on roottalk.

Also i don't know how you can then store the deb packages on the ROOT page in a way that is useable by peoples apt sources.list Christian will have to help with that.

and finally we should synchronize this effort with PAIPIX i guess ... or rather they with us.
