Unblock suggestion: kdebase
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=500540 is an RC bug in
kdebase that is present in Lenny but not in sid. The upload from 2-3
weeks ago of -6 fixes it. I'm explicitly CC:ing the uploader of -6.
The debdiff is fairly simple, and attached. The changelog reports that
this fixes two bugs: the bug CC:d and the non-RC 505316. The debdiff and
the changelog indicate a series file added, but both make it clear that
the series file does not change the actual patch system.
This RC bug is still in Lenny, even though -6 fixes it in sid.
It seems to me that kdebase should be unblocked, and -6 be allowed to flow
into testing. I'm not the maintainer or debian-release, so my word is by
no means gospel. I'm also CC:ing my AM so he knows what I'm up to.
If debian-release *really* would prefer a 4:3.5.9.dfsg.1-5+lenny1 that
only fixes the RC and removes the other two changes, I can work on
preparing it. It doesn't seem a productive use of time but I leave that
decision to debian-release.
They spell it "da Vinci" and pronounce it "da Vinchy". Foreigners
always spell better than they pronounce.
