A pox on all your foreign speaking houses! You don't need to get everything in experimental in sync. Just make sure you've got it built. You should be aiming for something like: gnome2.6 | 2.6-1 | experimental | alpha, arm gnome2.6 | 2.6-3 | experimental | m68k, mipsel gnome2.6 | 2.6-4 | experimental | ia64, hppa, s390, sparc gnome2.6 | 2.6-5 | experimental | mips gnome2.6 | 2.6-6 | experimental | i386, source gnome2.6 | 2.6-6.0.1 | experimental | powerpc not necessarily gnome2.6 | 2.6-6 | experimental | alpha, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, m68k, mips, mipsel, s390, sparc, source gnome2.6 | 2.6-6.0.1 | experimental | powerpc You're aiming to get something that can clearly be made to work easily, not something that's already been made to work. Sorry, I know this is complicated, and probably confusing enough in English, let alone with a language barrier, but I do think this is important enough to do right, and I'm hopeful that the Gnome 2.6 stuff will provide some more examples so it's clearer in the future. Hopefully the above is reasonably clear. > But then, maybe the pool > mechanism should not drop an older _all package if there is a package of > some arch that depends on it, but sure this would need more than one > version of the _all package in the archive. Yes, this is on the TODO list. I think we even worked out how to do it at one point. Don't expect it any sooner than experimental autobuilding though. :( Cheers, aj -- Anthony Towns <firstname.lastname@example.org> <http://azure.humbug.org.au/~aj/> Don't assume I speak for anyone but myself.
