Bug#604464: unblock: apt-cacher-ng/0.5.1-3
Please unblock package apt-cacher-ng. <insert your favorite
"I-know-it's-late" phrase here>.
The background of this request is mainly task #598469 which originally
got RC severity by Phil and I supposed that most mirror administrators
will react similarly in future. The problem is real after all, and the
workaround for it has been added weeks ago in Sid and no collateral
damage has been reported so far.
There are two other issues which I consider important: #603463 because
it affects other packages and the reason is hard to track, and a minor
problem (hand+thread leak) which affects a few users (those who try the
DontCache options) and the corresponding fix could also affect only that
few users; I don't expect any regressions caused by it.
All that said with the upstream hat on my head. For details, see:
