I already wrote patches for the first 20 packages (about 15 ones today);
and 2 packages have no bug report yet but are planned for later
(software-properties and update-notifier).

2 packages (reportbug-ng & dblatex) were already fixed and did not get a
bug report; 2 packages were fixed in response to the bug report
(gnome-codec-install & apt-xapian-index).

I have not yet started to look at my own 3 packages, because it's more
fun to hack on other people's packages first. And the packages I
maintain are all more or less graphical which means that most users
won't see the deprecation warnings anyway.

You may also want to look at the bug page:


I CCed debian-release this time, so they know what's going on here; and
as this may require some special stuff to get those 30 packages migrated
in time; once they all adapted to the new API.

As always, please keep at least deity@l.d.o in CC.
