Obsolete packages in hamm/main
Just when I decide to take a week off from Debian, interesting things
I have used some scripts to compare the hamm/main source archive to
the binary-i386 archive. I have come up with some mismatches between
the source and binary packages. Perhaps this information will be
useful for release planning. I suspect that most of the packages
named here are obsolete.
Source packages that are superseded by other source packages:
Source package generates which is already generated by
compface compface libcompface
dotfile-bash dotfile-bash dotfile
dotfile-elm dotfile-elm dotfile
dotfile-emacs dotfile-emacs dotfile
dotfile-fvwm1 dotfile-fvwm1 dotfile
dotfile-fvwm2 dotfile-fvwm2 dotfile
dotfile-rtin dotfile-rtin dotfile
dotfile-tcsh dotfile-tcsh dotfile
jedsl jedsl jed
olvwm olvwm xview
xemacs xemacs20 xemacs20
xemacs xemacs20-support xemacs20
xemacs xemacs20-supportel xemacs20
If a package is listed here, it means that the binary package in the
second column lists the source package in the third column as its
source. The source package in the first column is probably obsolete.
Source packages without binaries:
Source package gclinfo generates binary packages gclinfo and
gclinfo-html, but gclinfo-html does not exist in hamm.
Source package xdigger generates binary package xdigger, which
does not exist in hamm.
Binary packages with missing source:
Packages aout-xpm, seesat5, xcompat, and xega are not generated by
any source package in hamm/main/source.
Binary packages with bad source:
Packages joe, lambdamoo, and magicfilter have a .orig.tar.gz file,
but no .dsc or .diff.gz files.
Binary packages that are not generated by their source packages:
Binary package lists as source probably superseded by
blt blt blt2 and blt2-dev
libhdf4-dev libhdf4 libhdf4-altdev
libjpeg-dev libjpeg libjpeg-altdev
libpng0-dev libpng0 libpng0-altdev
libtiff3-dev libtiff3 libtiff3-altdev
netcdf-dev netcdf netcdf-altdev
xpm4.7-dev xpm xpm4-altdev
xview-dev xview xview-altdev
For each of the binary packages here, no source package exists in
hamm/main/source that generates them.
Binary package whose source is in old source format:
cdwrite, cern-httpd, dld, elisp-manual, emacs-lisp-intro, f2c,
hfsutils, infocom, j1, manpages-de, ncpfs, net-acct, netcat, p2c,
ratfor77, rspfd, sam, smail, term, unarj
libc4 and libc4-dev (generated by libc4)
tcl74 and tcl74-dev (generated by tcl74)
tcl75 and tcl75-dev (generated by tcl75)
tk40 and tk40-dev (generated by tk40)
tk41 and tk41-dev (generated by tk41)
This list rolled out of the scripts as a kind of bonus :-)
I hope this helps,
