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
gnatpython OK (renamed to python-gnatpython)
libgtkada2 OK (renamed to libgtkada)
narval ready but build-depends on polyorb
polyorb ready but build-depends on gnatpython
As you can see, all but a few packages have now transitioned to
gnat-4.6. In a couple of weeks, I shall request that packages
that still have not made the transition be removed from testing
(but not unstable) so that other packages can migrate to testing.
Also, a minor change in Debian Policy for Ada is forthcoming: we
will remove the virtual package ada-compiler, which is not really
necessary and causes lots of lintian warnings. So, please go
ahead and upload updates to your packages to remove dependencies
on ada-compiler. The last step will be to upload a gnat-4.6 that
does not Provide: ada-compiler. I hope to do this last upload in
May at the latest, in time for the freeze in June.
