That should be understandable by more or less anyone taking care of binNMUs, without a need for further explanations in the future. Last bit: binNMUs are usually handled by the release team. ;-) Initial request: | I would like to request a binNMU for voms and lcgdm so that they get | rebuilt with the new version of gsoap (2.8.4-1). I can take care of scheduling those if the release team is happy with it though (I have no time to check whether it would be entangled with ongoing transitions). Mraw, KiBi.
