Hi, here is the current status (as far as I understood it from a quick talk on #debian-gnome as well as from a recent thread on -boot@) for X11-based d-i images. Step 1: ------- We push everything needed for X & Gnome. That means we don't push the modified udebs maintained by d-i, so that we don't break the existing alpha 1 release. This means some packages are going to be broken in testing: the d-i udebs are going to still rely on dropped/modified udebs (from the gnome stack: cairo, pango1.0, gtk+2.0), but that doesn't matter much since they are currently unused. 1. http://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2010/03/msg00366.html That also means that gnome folks will be able to do any transitions they want (their planned experimental → unstable move). In the meanwhile, it won't be possible to build graphical images from testing, but that's not an issue. Step 2: ------- We push d-i udebs during the next d-i release, which will make graphical images buildable from testing as well. Please find below the list of source packages for each step: ,---[ Step 1 ]--- | cairo | gtk+2.0 | gtk2-engines | libfontenc | libx11 | libxau | libxcb | libxcursor | libxdmcp | libxext | libxfixes | libxfont | libxi | libxinerama | libxkbfile | libxrender | pango1.0 | udev | vte | x11-xkb-utils | xft | xkeyboard-config | xorg-server [ WARNING ] | xserver-xorg-input-evdev | xserver-xorg-video-fbdev `--- WARNING about xorg-server: the udeb isn't buildable on sparc yet. I believe we could skip pushing it for that step 1 (nothing depend on it), and only push it later either when we have dropped sparc from the list of supported architectures, or better when nettle and/or xorg-server are tweaked so that it also builds on sparc. Since nothing depends on it, not pushing it during step 1 shouldn't be an issue. Also, AFAICT from the current buildd status of those packages, besides some of them being only “Built” (because they were uploaded a couple of hours ago), there seem to be no other issues. The following packages should be the ones broken by this push: ,---[ Packages in sid still depending on *directfb* udebs ]--- | cdebconf-gtk-entropy | cdebconf-gtk-terminal | cdebconf-gtk-udeb | libdirectfb-bin-udeb | libgtk-directfb-2.0-0-udeb | libsdl1.2debian-udeb `--- Those packages aren't uploaded to unstable yet, and might wait until the next d-i release: ,---[ Step 2 ]--- | cdebconf | cdebconf-entropy | cdebconf-terminal | rootskel-gtk `--- Mraw, KiBi.
