Re: Bug#580455: (with patch) Who's minding the store at yaboot?

The package page for Yaboot at http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/ yaboot lists Aurélien GÉRÔME and Sven Luther as the maintainers.

Sven has been unable to participate for some years now, and the last time I saw Aurélien's name on a from line was almost a year ago, and nothing for a couple of years before that.

Bug#580455 will soon make Squeeze un-installable on PowerMac hardware due to the need to switch to UUID's for identifying the boot and root partitions in response to udev having rendered the conventional device names non-deterministic.

I've provided a patch (to ybin) that fixes the problem, but there doesn't seem to be anybody interested in testing it on non-PowerMac hardware, or geting it into the released code.

I'm not a DD or a DM (and don't want to be one -- I haven't the time or expertise) so there's a need for somebody to take over...
