 * Make ACPI work natively in Debian

    * Salient points from #debian-eeepc irclog for 11 Feb 2008
     * Make this package group-maintained by debian-eeepc-devel
     * Feel free to remove the $eeepc_dir stuff (only there because ecc is testing a kernel patch that puts all the controls under /sys/devices/platform/asus instead of /proc/acpi/asus, which is deprecated)
  * Currently uses aosd_cat which shows pretty antialiased fonts rather than xosd_cat, but that package has not been very stable (incompatible changes between minor releases, etc.) -- maybe depend on alternatives, listing the 'preferred' aosd_cat first (needs support for both in function notify() in hotkey.sh to test for executable and do the right thing)
   * Rebuild custom installer to include eeepc-acpi module and eeepc-acpi-scripts package
  * Long term: Help Asus merge ACPI upstream
   * asus-acpi (and therefore eeepc-acpi which is a fork) are deprecated; work with the asus-laptop maintainer to merge patches for the Eee
