I wonder if I should interpret the silence from Nikita as meaning "not
now, I'm busy"?

I had been waiting for something from Nikita before uploading anything
for 4.6, preferably including some critical feedback, but in the
interest of not having everyone wait for everyone else or anything
like that, I've now uploaded the following:

 * Package name    : gcc-4.6-doc-non-dfsg
   Version         : 4.6.2-1~naesten1
   Section         : doc

It builds those binary packages:

 cpp-4.6-doc - documentation for the GNU C preprocessor (cpp)
 gcc-4.6-doc - documentation for the GNU compilers (gcc, gobjc, g++)
 gcc-doc-base - several GNU manual pages
 gcj-4.6-doc - documentation for the GNU Java tools (gcj, gij)
 gfortran-4.6-doc - documentation for the GNU Fortran Compiler (gfortran)
 gnat-4.6-doc - documentation for the GNU Ada 95 Compiler (gnat)

To access further information about this package, please visit the
following URL:


Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command:

  dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/non-free/g/gcc-4.6-doc-non-dfsg/gcc-4.6-doc-non-dfsg_4.6.2-1~naesten1.dsc

I've given it a strange version number again because:

1. I suspect I should probably simplify debian/changelog a lot

2. In contemplating putting debian/copyright in DEP-5 format, I've
realized that I'm not sure of the exact copyright/licensing status of
anything in the debian/ directory, except:

  (a) the files that are just lists of other files, which I don't
believe are copyrightable

  (b) the Python script I wrote, because there's a clear notice at the
top saying what the status is ;-)
