Re: status of jackd? (bug #318098)
For the record, bug #318098 is related to the gcc transition - the packages
that will get removed if jackd is installed are most of kde. A new kde
could not be uploaded to change the dependency to the new libjack0.100.0-0
because of the chain of dependencies that had to make the gcc transition
before kde can.
That said, as libjack is not a c++ library, it seems possible that this
problem might have been avoided if the libjack transition had waited until
after the gcc transition.
