Hello Sven, Thomas and anyone tracking ncurses,
Apologies if you get double posts, I'm not sure if you are subscribed

I think we're pretty close where we should be putting out a Debian
release of ncurses.
I'd like #556378 fixed beforehand, if possible. This is the -static
problem, which Sven tried to fix with the --without-dlsym and had
build troubles. If I can get some idea on how tricky it is to fix we
can then work out wether or not we fix it this time.
It seems small enough that I can do it in my normal cycle on (this)
Outside of bug-reports like this, I've been mainly working on the mingw
port. The sp-funcs stuff is reasonably stable, but probably not a good
thing to turn on in a new release.
The dlsym and the proposed separate-packaging for Ada95 are the only new
items that I recall.
There's two important bugs that are fixed but not closed off, that's a
BTS problem not a ncurses problem.
The remaining important level bug #569227 looks more like a shell
problem, not ncurses. In any case it seems somewhat specific to the
agree (there's nothing that I can see to followup on).
Is there anything else we really need to get sorted out before this
Not that I recall
