inconsistent versions of M-A: same packages
sorry for the naive question, but is there a plan for massively rebuilding
all "Multi-Arch: same" packages that have inconsistent version numbers
across architectures before releasing Jessie?
I understand that in testing or unstable, rebuilding for all platforms
every time a single one needs a rebuild is costly. And there may be
solutions in future versions of dpkg/apt to accept multiarch
co-installations that differ only by a rebuild. But in the mean time, for
a stable release like Jessie, it would be nice to be able to take
advantage of the good work some maintainers have put into adapting their
packages to M-A.
A few random packages that currently have an inconsistent version:
zlib1g (+b1 on ppc64el)
expat (+b1 on ppc64el, +b2 on arm64)
check (+b1 on s390x, libc conflicts with non +b1 version)
