Re: Breaking the gnome-ish dependency loop
please find below a proposed plan to get rid of the current gnome-ish
If the goal is to upload a minimum number of manually-built packages to
the archive, it might be interesting to only upload the librsvg
binaries, so that gnome-icon-theme becomes installable on the buildds,
making it possible to autobuild pygtk and avahi at least. gnome-vfs
would then need to wait until an upload fixing #529827 happens. I'm not
sure it would a good idea to upload the binaries built from a half-fixed
half-dirtily-hacked gnome-vfs package, but that might help speeding up
IMHO, the start should be to upload manually-built libgsf or libsvrg into
archive and let buildd do what they can.
Please do not reschedule all packages until packages from imagemagick are
available. Unfortunately, currently
imagemagick is provided by graphicsmagick-imagemagick-compat
and libmagick++-dev is provided graphicsmagick-libmagick-dev-compat.
Sometimes packages FTBFS, otherwise they are linked against different
libraries compared to linux architectures.
