Re: O: wicd -- wired and wireless network manager


honestly thanks a lot for the friendly support. Especially Axel, thanks for offer to sponsor me. I hope, I won't disappoint you. I'm currently trying to understand the general debian build process, what quilt does and how it works, what function the files in the debian dir have, etc. pp. And of course, I'm reading the packaging/maintainership docs of debian.

Additionally I've set up the github repo https://github.com/toogley/pkg-wicd - but i didn't make any changes yet.

Question: Jessie has currently this package https://packages.debian.org/jessie/git-remote-bzr which would allow us (since upstream uses bazaar) to fetch new upstream changes more easily. But i don't know if its appropriate for debian packaging, since it's an additional dependency for the process of maintaining itself.

Again, thanks for your support. Of course, I hope, i won't disappoint any of you guys :D

Hi Axel!

The main reason why I haven't uploaded it as QA upload already is that
wicd-curses is slightly broken since 1.7.3. This likely requires
patching upstream code to get it fixed. See the TODO at

yes, I thought I mentioned that, but thanks!

The new release is already imported in git, so it might just be a
matter of rebasing patches,>That's already done.

I was talking about the patches in the BTS (bugs tagged "patch").
I think they should be checked and untagged/ or fixed if possible
