Re: Please unblock moodle-1.8.2-2
(Regarding the unblock request submitted last week...)
Please note that version of Moodle in Etch is 1.6.3, which is very old and
almost unmaintained. The most recent release on the 1.6 branch is 1.6.8 and
even the latest stable release is 1.9, which was originally released in
March this year.
If Moodle is dropped from Lenny, the default behaviour for Etch upgraders
will be to keep using 1.6.3 until Squeeze. We can't rely on users making the
effort to go and find a backport, and continuing to use 1.6.3 will be a very
unsatisfactory experience for them.
Thank you for your consideration,
