RFS: xz-utils (updated package)
I am looking for feedback and a possible sponsor for the new version
4.999.9beta+20091002-1 of my package "xz-utils".
It builds these binary packages:
xz-utils - high compression-ratio compressor
liblzma-dev - development library
liblzma-doc - doxygen-generated reference documentation
liblzma0 - runtime library
The package appears to be lintian clean.
The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/x/xz-utils
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/x/xz-utils/xz-utils_4.999.9beta+20091002-1.dsc
This addresses several serious bugs, including 542060, which made the
previous version impossible to install with apt-get, and 544872, which
could cause the ostensibly lossless compression to lose a few trailing
bytes in some circumstances. So naturally, I would be very happy if
someone finds the time to look this over.
