Packagesearch propagating an important fix
could you please consider propagating the version of packagesearch
currently in unstable (2.2.5) to etch?
It fixes an annoying (important) Bug which made packagesearch crash, if
an invalid input was entered by the user (#408051).
The version in testing is 2.2.3. Version 2.2.4 (which lies in between)
was uploaded shortly before the freeze, and has proven to be as stable
as its predecessor. The change from 2.2.3 to 2.2.4 only removed an
obsolete feature. The change from 2.2.4 to 2.2.5 is a two-liner merly
Packagesearch is a native Debian package and thus has no Debian
revision. The current unstable version has been uploaded on Jan 23rd.
excerpt from CHANGELOG file:
------- released version 2.2.5 ------
- fixed crash when selecting non-existent package (caused by the
debtags plugin, Closes: #408051)
------- released version 2.2.4 ------
- removed DebtagsActionPlugin, since "debtags update" is no longer
------- released version 2.2.3 ------
