did you mean to put man first or second?

I don't have the hardware to test this, but I expected that running "sakis3g man" would show me a man page of some sort. Instead it does nothing. Is that expected behaviour?

The packaging looks good. One tip: I noticed that Debian is moving towards machine-readable debian/copyright [1]. You might want to consider that for a future version. I think I got it right for the galaxia package.

Sakis3g (http://www.sakis3g.org) is a GPLv2 program that allows one to connect to the internet using a GSM 3G USB or bluetooth modem. I used the "All architects - Binary free version's source" (http://www.sakis3g.org/#source). The package is available on

I would like to add this package to the official gNewSense repo.
