Re: libgl1-mesa-directfb-dev should not provide libgl-dev: ITNMU
Since Xorg 7.1 is needed for etch (7.0 is almost completely broken on alpha,
for instance), and Xorg 7.1 needs a newer mesa, and there are also some
incompatibilities between the mesa currently in etch and some of the drivers
there, I intend to NMU mesa this weekend, uploading the version in
experimental into unstable.
I will also be fixing this bug and bug #386185 in the process.
Please let me know if you have any objections to this NMU; I know having a
mesa CVS snapshot in the release isn't ideal, and I wouldn't normally NMU a
new upstream version like this even if it had been packaged, but as I said
this is on the critical path for etch so I think it's necessary here.
Indeed, I've been side-stepping this particular issue for a while hoping
that you might have time to take care of it soon, but I think we're at the
point that we need to push this forward for etch one way or another.
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
