The recent NMU of Samuel (see #309089) to link GKrellM against GNUTLS
introduced a bug (#310471), for which I already filed a patch.
Since the GKrellM package version 2.2.5-1.2 is now hinted into Sarge, I
would like to know how this should be handled.
The crashes will render the package unusable for all user that check
more than one SSL enabled mailbox with GKrellM. I think, there are many
of them out there, including me ;-)
So IMHO, the version 2.2.5-1.2 should definitely NOT go into the
release. But I don't feel authorised to raise the severity of bug
#310471, since the package is not completely unusable.
Due to the hint, the package goes to testing tomorrow.
Therefore, I send you this mail.
What do you think?
Thanks for noticing and fixing this so fast (I made some tests but I did
not think of thread-safeness issues...). I also think that it should be
corrected before entering sarge (though strictly speaking I also don't
think it's a RC bug).
I can have an NMU ready with your updated patch quite soon.
Debian-release, what do you think? Should I upload it as soon as
possible (i.e. before it enters sarge)? I'll do so in a few hours unless
someone objects to it in the meantime.
