Thank you for your upgrade request. I have added the "upgrade" tag so devs can find upgrade requests easier.

Can you *please* do the upgrade of s3cmd to 0.9.9?

The old has got a number of serious bugs in it and I keep getting lots of bugreports from Ubuntu users, just because they get an obsolete version by default. I'm really sad that Jaunty has been released with the old version, although this upgrade request has been open long before the release. Do it at least for Karmic. Pretty please!

0.9.9 is now in Karmic, so it's not an upgrade bug anymore. To get 0.9.9 in Jaunty, this bug needs to change to a backport request, and you need to find a few people to test the bacported packages in Jaunty.
I've got packages for Jaunty to test on my ppa at ; however I can't test them myself since I never used the program nor the Amazon service.

If 2 or 3 people could test them on Jaunty then the backport could be considered. However, without any feedback it won't work, since nobody would know for sure that it won't break on end user desktops.
