Re: RFS: snap2 rsync-based backup program with GUI (with Debian source)

Dear Norbert,

Thank you for your help with my snap2 project.

The package appears to be lintian-clean.

How do you come to that idea?

Of course I came to that idea by running lintian (Lintian v1.24.2.1+lenny1) against the binary deb.  It reported nothing (clean).  I think the problem is that I am running the Debian stable (Lenny) version of dpkg-dev, and you are probably running sid.  I see now that for software intended for sid I should run the sid versions of these tools.

I also see that I overlooked that the binary-arch target is required - sorry.

BUT: You have a dependency on
but there is no package gtkdialog anymore, and also the file is gone
(but in m68k arch, please see packages.debian.org and search for
gtkdialog file).

SO I am not sure how this program should run?

It did not occur to me to check for gtkdialog in Sid (it is available in Lenny http://packages.debian.org/lenny/gtkdialog).  So, until there is a gtkdialog package in Sid, snap2 cannot run.  This is a great disappointment - I put a lot of effort into this, my first Debian package.

I'm sorry I did not check for the dependencies in Sid.  I never imagined that gtkdialog would be left out (so far, anyway).

Since the snap2 dependencies cannot be fulfilled, I withdraw my RFS for snap2.

Thanks again.
