A question about a package
there's a lib, (coin) that now in testing and sid is with the version
2.3.0-1. The source package is the coin2 that provides several packages in
the bin form.
Some weeks ago, the people that develops coin (www.sim.no) released a new
version with some bugfixes (2.4.0)  . However, after testing it, we found
a bug _only_ in the amd64 arch, also this bug affect the 2.3.0 version that
we have in sarge. The bug is related to some strange behavior of a vfprintf
Sarge is frozen and I cannot put a bug in debian because amd64 port is
unofficial. The bug is solved, but only in the cvs version. The sim people
will release a new version soon but there's no date.
So, what is the best way to manage this?
- create a 2.4.0-cvs, with the bug solved?
- patch the 2.3.0 version and the the debian package ? Morten, is this
- upload a new version before sarge release to have the same version of the
- have a different version of this package in the amd64 port?
