Please upload NMU of tix package to close #360920

tags 360920 patch



I found out that the tix-dev does not install the essential tix.h. This
is extremly inconvenient, if you need tix. There is a bugreport about this that is
almost 200 days old, without a response by the maintainer.


I'm not sure why this bug has severity 'normal'. A significant part of
the package is pretty useless without the header.

I fixed the bug and uploaded the NMU to mentors.d.n. Because this is
already the third NMU in a row this message is send to debian-devel
directly (maintainer is CC'ed).

I'd be glad if someone could upload the package (I'm not a DD). I have
to admit that the fix is not the most beautiful. However, it is fairly
simple and should work. Please see the attached diff.

And yes, the package is anything else than lintian clean!

The package is here:




Thanks in advance,
