Re: esound with libasound2
(Please cc: me if you reply this message.)
Ok, I understand what your thinking. I will not do NMU.
However, I don't think only ALSA 0.5 is stable release. The current
ALSA is also enough stable for sid ("unstable" release) users. So I
believe the upload of esound with libasound2 to sid is not so bad
action. Moreover, the upstream ALSA developers said " The 0.5.x
series is considered deprecated and is no longer supported" (in their
web page.), and Debian will treat gcc3.2 as a default c compiler in
near feture. I believe ALSA 0.5 cannot be built by gcc 3.2. Then,
please reconsider about uploading esound built with libasound2.
By the way, how about gdm package? The current (in sid) gnome version
is "2" !!
