Re: Transition to gnat-4.6 current status
This is a status update about the transition to gnat-4.6.
The previous status update is at
adabrowse WiP; "ready soon"
libaws build-depends on libtemplates-parser
libgtkada2 OK (renamed to libgtkada)
narval ready but build-depends on polyorb
polyorb ready but build-depends on gnatpython
RfU stands for Request for Upload. This means the package is ready in the
maintainer's opinion and waiting for me to upload.
WiP stands for Work in Progress.
The only change in unstable since the last report is that libgtkada is
now in unstable. I have started work on gnat-gps, traditionally the
largest and most labor-intensive package, and made good progress; I think
I'll be able to upload during the holidays. I have chosen to update
gnat-gps to version 5.0, not 5.1, because only 5.0 is source-compatible
with libgnatprj4.6. Still, I have to patch the sources so they compile
with libgtkada2.24.0-dev (upstream uses 2.18). Most of the patches are
mechanical but there are also a couple more subtle cases.
All in all, it looks like we'll be in a position to complete the
transition by FOSDEM 2012 :) We'll then have another 4 months
to fix any bugs before the freeze of Wheezy in June 2012.
