Hi, I was contacted by the Debian Edu maintainers to upload a new version of consolekit to stable, as they intend to use it extensively and there is a list of important bugs which (especially #521651) can lead to consolekit taken up all CPU . The changelog is: consolekit (0.2.10-5+lenny1) stable-proposed-updates; urgency=low * debian/patches/11-unref-dbus-proxy.patch - Unref the dbus proxy when finalizing the session object, so that they are not leaked. (Closes: #521651) * debian/patches/06-xmlto_skip_validation.patch - Skip XML validation when generating the documentation. (Closes: #516253) The xmlto version in lenny otherwise causes a FTBFS. * debian/patches/08-fix-double-close.patch - Fix double close of the log file, which occasionally causes segfaults. * debian/patches/09-directory-handle-leak.patch - Close the directory handle when we're done with it, so that we aren't leaking file descriptors. * debian/patches/10-file_monitor_remove_watch_crash.patch - Fix common crash when trying to remove a NULL watch. -- Michael Biebl <email@example.com> Sun, 29 Mar 2009 21:21:09 +0200 The relevant patches have all been applied to the version in squeeze/sid and are originally taken from the Ubuntu package from their last stable release. So those patches have seen quite some testing already. For easier review, here is the list of patches.
