Re: Consciously blocking packages and development



It would probably more helpful to approach our release team asking for advice how to proceed with transition than sending this blunt rant into d-d.

Dear maintainers of debian-edu-doc, all of d-d

[short explanation for d-d: debian-edu-doc has a serious bug since it
build-deps on a not existing package. Instead of transiting to the
new pakcage naming, it keeps the old anme hindering transition)

I see that the fix was even reverted in the git repository.

Are you planning to block TeX Live transition for unforeseeable future?
Might I remind you that the packaging is for Debian/sid to go into
testing.

Whatever your ideas and backgrounds concerning Debian Edu are,
your main obligation is *not*to*block*hinder* other packages.

Might I also remind you once more, that the target of development is
*unstable* and *NOT* (!!!) wheezy which is released. Your statement
that it has to be buildable on wheezy is *simply* plain wrong.

It is ridiculous that you not even care for *answering* to
inquiries on a serious bug, although there is a lot of activity
in the git repository (see below for logs).

Thanks for your understanding

Norbert
