Bug#635962: Please provide udeb package of libnl3 for debian-installer
To add WPA wireless configuration support in d-i we need wpa_supplicant
and thus libnl3 (wpa_supplicant is goning to be converted to libnl3
soon). For this we need an udeb version of libnl3.
We are currently at Debconf working on a patch for your package and will
probably submit it tomorrow. We want to ask you if you would agree to an
NMU for this.
This is quite urgent for us because the libnl3-udeb has to enter the
archive first so that we can build wpasupplicant against it and then the
d-i component (netcfg) against the wpasupplicant-udeb.
Our patch will modify your CDBS rules file to use the CDBS flavour
functionality to build a special version for the udeb. For this to work
we also need a patch from the upstream git repository to be able to
build the library outside of the source tree.
Thanks for your cooperation,
