Does this affect daily d-i builds or is it 'just' wpasupplicant-udeb
(new package) being unusable without affecting the kfreebsd ports yet?
While being RC in either case, the later part would allow checking with
libpcap maintainers if they would provide an udeb we could depend on,
instead of having to make wpasupplicant linux-any/ immediately and
asking ftp-master to remove the current binaries to unbreak d-i for
So as far as I understand it, we have two options:
- asking libpcap maintainers to add an udeb for wpasupplicant-udeb to
- disabling to build wpasupplicant-udeb on kfreebsd-any (making it
linux-any) and to remove the 0.7.3-4 binaries from the archive, as
long as there is not libpcap udeb.
Which of these options would you, as the kfreebsd porters, prefer to
pursue for now?
