Well -- I did not really believe that there is no dev package available
for glib on gnewsense.  It would be completely infeasible without
that.  My point was that it does not show up when searching the
repository.  If, as a long term debian user, this happens to me, that
kind of implies the problem is not my inability to use or understand
apt (which I have for years) but that there *must be* some peculiar
issue with the gnewsenes repository.

I suppose it does not need to matter to me -- I can always check for a
package name using a properly functioning system, if gnewsense does not
work in this regard, and then try apt-get.   I was just wondering if
there were some explanation for this or some information from the site
that I missed, but apparently that is not the case.  Thanks!
