Re: how-to push a package in testing ?

Anthony Towns,

It appears that you can help me with the following problem:

gphoto2 in testing need a libusb package more recent that the one
currently in testing. This situation is due to a missing shlibs info in
the libusb currently in testing. This is fixed in libusb in sid and
gphoto2 in sid is build against this updated libusb.

I was hoping that the situation will solved itself when updated packages
entered in woody but this is not happening.

I see two solutions :
. upgrade of libusb and packages depending on it
. removing gphoto2 from testing and fixing the problem which causes
libusb to not be updated (I don't undersatnd what is specific in alpha).

Could you do something here ?
