Re: list of 2.1r4 changes (was: Re: Last call for updated non-i386 packages.)



I just spent a couple of hours going through the list, verifying some
things and fixing stuff. Vincent: frankly I'm annoyed that I had to do
this, since this is your job. 

This list assumes that everything that is in Incoming right now has been
processed. I've tested things with dinstall so that should not be a
problem.

People should pay more attention: I had to hand-fix a couple of .changes
and even a .dsc file that seem to have been hand-edited and messed up.

We do have a real problem: the y2k fixes hit proposed-updates way too
late and now it seems the m68k autobuilder for stable isn't running
so we don't have the y2k fixes for m68k. At this moment I'm not
sure if everything will be recompiled on time.. I'm compiling stuff
manually myself now but it's getting late and I do need to get some
sleep...
