How to close bug #620550?
I'm looking for advice on how to get bug #620550 closed. This
thread on php-maint is the only record I can find of why PHP was
switched from GDBM to QDBM. That change introduced gdbm_ symbol
conflicts that end up breaking GDBM functionality in other packages
(mod_perl2 in my case). I provided patches (which may or may not be the
correct approach) to enable building QDBM without the "GDBM emulation"
but haven't seen any activity on the bug in months. On all our
production squeeze servers we've had to resort to building QDBM from
source and replacing the shared lib from the Debian package with our own
which isn't ideal. Should that bug be flagged as RC since it breaks
functionality in other packages? It would be nice to ensure this problem
doesn't exist in the next Debian release if it can't be fixed in stable.
