Re: Updating policy
I got my numbers wrong; it'll be 126.96.36.199. My latest changes are all
checked in to CVS. I had been working my way through the BTS when I
got interrupted to arrange my visa to teach for five weeks in
Vancouver. I'm due to fly tomorrow and don't yet have it....
I was working through the "NMU Fixed - pending" bugs (mostly titled
"REJECTED") closing them or implementing them as I felt appropriate,
and in some cases asking for more comments without changing their
status. I had reached bug #37999 in this part of the BTS; further
discussion has now happened on most of these so it could be worth
looking them over and making a decision on the ones up to there. I
hadn't yet started looking at any other parts of the BTS for -policy
or anything for pkg-man.
Only one other change that needs making: the virtual-packages list
changelog should have an addition for the x-* stuff you added.
It's possible I will have some more time this week while I sit in
Seattle waiting for my visa to be processed, but I am not making any
promises. So any help would be much appreciated.
