Yes, I fully intend to fix that - which is why I tagged the bug
report "confirmed" when it was first reported, even while it
was still of lower severity. I just had a lot of other stuff
come up and didn't get to it yet. I had actually planned to
take some time on Sunday for this, even before the severity of
this bug was bumped.
Also, I'd really appreciate it if you talked to me and zumbi
first before escalating the bug report and asking for a revert
of archive-wide changes in the name of the dietlibc package.
Because from my perspective I'm in favor of the change (hence
the "confirmed" on the bug when it was first reported, and I
did follow the threads on debian-devel related to this) and we
could have had this discussion amongst ourselves without
involving the gcc maintainers, who probably have to deal with
enough things already. Many thanks.
