Re: call for uploads
For what it's worth, ddetect (ethdetect), and netcfg (netcfg-dhcp, and
netcfg-static) were uploaded by my sponsor on Tuesday (Jan 9). They
should be gradually working their way through the system and available soon,
though last time I checked thei database had heard of them, but they weren't yet
That packages they depend on are on their way more of less:
libdetect-udeb : in incoming.
dhcpcd-udeb : I've talked some with the dhcpcd maintainer, and he thinks the
package may have too many bugs. He is going to apply the patch anyway as far
as I know, but indicated he is short on time at the moment. I still think it is
the best tool for debian-installer dhcp.
