OK I'm keen to upload now, but would prefer to upload after libosip2-4 hits experimental as otherwise linphone would require a rebuild. > * secondly, regarding libosip2-4, it is indeed a very small > transition, though it would get itself tied to the ffmpeg transition > via linphone. Can you upload it to experimental first to check > everything rebuilds fine? libosip2-4 has been in experimental since Nov (3.2.0). There is a new upstream release available (3.3.0) but that doesn't change soname, so no transition necessary, unless I upload the new upstream to unstable. rdepends are bayonne & siproxd & linphone which are all good to go. Of course bayonne is also tied to the libcommoncpp2 transition ;-) But I think that is almost clear now. > * finally, does the new linphone fix the FTBFSes that can be seen at > https://buildd.debian.org/~luk/status/package.php?p=linphone? And, > can it be uploaded without uploading libosip2-4 unstable (in case > we'd need to do that)? Yes the new linphone fixes the FTBFS and does build correctly with libosip2-3. However don't we want to sequence the rdepends sourceful uploads in the correct order to minimise the revisiting of binNMUs. If I upload linphone without first clearing libosip2-4, then I will need to request a binNMU for linphone later. Or am I missing something? > Thanks in advance for your answers and for contacting us, and for > patiently waiting our response. A guide/ howto would be useful for this new way of working. As I couldn't find this new process documented anywhere. Something like a library transition howto: 1. soname bump? check with debian-release - await ack. 2. upload rdepends in sequence, await NEW & builds on all archs until the next sequence is complete. upload next rdepends. cycle on 2 until all sourceful uploads complete 3. request bunNMU for non sourceful uploads 4. feel free to upload to experimental at any time.
