(No need to CC me on replies. Thx.) Hi Mario, Samuel, others, The FTP-masters alerted us to the fact that you uploaded a new D-I component to the archive: speakup-udeb. We have an agreement with them that they check with us before approving packages with new udebs. It seems that this is only a very minimal udeb (only three hook scripts) and we're wondering if there is really a justification to have a separate udeb for that. 1) The scripts would possibly fit fine in the rootskel and/or finish-install udebs. 2) There would be a change in D-I needed anyway to get your udeb included in images. 3) Having a udeb in a source package has a cost: it is blocked by default for migrations to testing and causes some release management overhead. So, our questions are: - can you please send us the scripts so we can review them - is there a real reason these scripts need to be in a separate udeb (one reason could be because they may need to be updated with upstream changes in the same source package; another could be that they should not be included for all installation methods) - how were you planning to use these scripts: what images and what architectures; did you already have a patch for D-I to include them Until we have reached agreement on this, the package will not be accepted from NEW. For a next time: please check with us before uploading. Cheers, FJP
