They were in Cc, but you seem to be unable to summarize past
discussions, too. You also seem to be unable to describe your changes
to the existing packages that you want to do except for handwaiving.

I don't see how we could handle this request, so I'm tagging it moreinfo
now, even if it might as well be closed unless there's more useful

How would lxc depend on something live-*'ish? And why should we accept a
change to lxc that depends on something live-*'ish? So from the point of
wheezy I'm inclined to say: doesn't affect it.

Please elaborate. What timeframe are you assuming?

As for uncooperativeness it doesn't help that you ignore half of the
mails. Maybe you need everything spelt out instead of blindly assuming
that you'd somehow get what questions we're aiming at. Of course
I should not assume malice, I guess.
