Re: More Assignments
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I've been following this list for quite a while, and even though I'm not
a DD (yet) and therefore can't NMU pkgs, I figure there's enough work
that I can do to help out the release process while I simmer in the NM
So here goes my attempt to construct a list of packages with RC bugs
that can be removed from testing/unstable:
This is an installer package in contrib for version 1.1 of the IBM jdk.
The files the package purports to install are no longer available from
IBM. Maintainer says he will contact IBM to see if it is still
available. No point in releasing until this is resolved.
Bugs: 189345 199880 203394
Suggestion: remove-from-testing, remove-from unstable
Package is uninstallable, and in the maintainer's words obsolete. In
bug 203394 the maintainer says that removal has been requested from
both unstable and testing but this obviously hasn't happened, yet...
Package hasn't had an upload since 2002-09-24. Maintainer hasn't
shown any activity on bugs against the package dating back to July of
2001. It is currently uninstallable since it has a dependancy on
python2.2. Package should be removed from testing until such time as
it is updated to work with the current version of python (2.3).
Bugs: 195932 202535
Suggestion: remove-from-testing, remove-from-unstable
Package hasn't had an upload since 2002-03-20. Package has been
merged into tetex-base (which Replaces it). However, the package has
a buggy prerm script which breaks the upgrade process. A patch has
been sent to bug 202535. IMHO, this should be NMUed and uploaded to
proposed-updates, and then the package should be removed from testing
Bugs: 193741 93524
This is a non-free package that hasn't seen an upload in almost three
years. It is marked Arch: Any, when it should be Arch: i386. To top
it off it is uninstallable on i386 since it depends on xlib6g!
Well, that's it for now folks. Please pardon me if I duplicated
anyone's work, I can't see ftp-master:~ajt/release-assistants/claims/ to
check... ;-) Let me know if this is useful, if I'm on the right
track, and whether I should try for more.
