Created by Nate Muench (Mink) and last modified

A variation of this branch will be in the actual proposal into merge with Precise.

I plan on adding all changes from the Debian unstable merge, but maintaining some of the existing additions from the Oneiric merge.

I have subscribed the Ubuntu Visualization Team to this branch so that they can see my progress and give their input.

I want to get the the October merge (with my changes) to build (and test) successfully before adding the November (and eventually the December) release.

The plan is to have this packaging tested and the proposal created sometime around the release of Alpha 2.

Daily builds can be found here (for Oneiric and Precise):

The Debian sid open-vm-tools branch (for my use only):
