The win32-loader package has a track record of being updated on a ~ monthly basis in unstable: translations, new features, etc. It has spent a long time in unstable as it was blocked as the rest of d-i, but has then 4 times during the Squeeze release cycle (so a ~ monthly basis too, depending on the unblocking policy in effect). And of course it should not get any update in stable (but s**t happens). > If its more than *few* times a year we can think of an autobyhand way > for it, but if its seldomly... > Keep in mind, it will be attached to the win32-loader package, so with > each upload the byhand will be there. Now I'm not certain we want the debian/tools/win32-loader.exe be synced with the unstable version. Is there a way to sync it to the testing version (beside setting and unsetting $BYHAND [as is done in loadlin] depending on the importance of the changes)? > Also, please not only provide a .exe, but also a .txt with the same > basename, explaining what it is. I will try to come up with something; it'll be there on the win32-loader upload that enables the dpkg-distaddfile call (after proofread on -boot). -- Didier Raboud, proud Debian Developer.
