Re: About the current state of the Yum package in Lenny

Very simple: yum crashes with a not-so-nice error message when I try to
boostrap a CentOS complaining about the iniparse python module not being

I should have add it to the bug report, but it didn't talk about
python-iniparse, #496137 was just about python-gpgme. I have just added
an entry for it in the BTS to make that clear.

My question was more: what's the way to have a package uploaded in pu.
Should I write in a particular list? This one maybe?

Then I guess both rpm and yum should be orphaned. Could this be done now
so we can move on?

Sure it was, but still with the same upstream version, which doesn't fix
#509444. I hope that a newer upstream version can be uploaded soon. The
changelog is quite impressive though, and seems to be a good work (I
didn't read more than the changelog). It shows Loic Minier
<lool@dooz.org>, not Anibal Monsalve Salazar or Andres Salomon that
still seems to be unactive on maintainership. I'm now adding Loic as Cc:
as he seems to be the one that cares about all this, and I guess Andres
shouldn't be in the loop anymore (as per what he said).

Thanks you 2 for your replies, and a big up (especially to you Luck),
for all the (impressive) work on the Lenny release.

P.S: Loic, tu sembles etre un compatriote vu ton nom, je me trompes ? :)
