Re: how-to push a package in testing ?



Hi Anthony Towns,

Would it be possible to remove the current gphoto2 package (final-1) from woody ?
It is clearly broken until the new libusb enter woody and when libusb
arrive a new gphoto2 will follow.

I am afraid that gphoto2 will be broken in the official woody release if
the release happens before the updated libusb package. 

The sane problem is apparently solved and gphoto2 2.0final-3 is build on
arm.
