Yes. If outstanding issues are solved; people want make you believe
that NMUs are enough to complete the transition. What needs to be
- Look for code which frees memory with PyMem_DEL, which was
allocated with PyObject_NEW (must use PyObject_Del instead).
Have done this for a few modules. Care to search the archive
and do the rest?
- Make some packages build for all supported python versions, so
that the transition is manageable. Done this wxwidgets2.6. Done
this for subversion (but the package maintainers says that the
package dependencies und b-d's are neglectable, just java, db,
ruby, python, apache, neon, and else). Maybe somebody from the
release team could argue with the package maintainer...
There were no activities after my mail from
I'll try to address these, but please don't expect those to be done
before Feb 23/24.
