exception for unionfs-fuse, please
I would like to ask for an exception of my package unionfs-fuse. A new version
has been release yesterday, which fixes one critical bug (I discovered myself
on Thursday). The bug is a deadlock happening on unions of /etc and /var,
when any syslog() call is made by unionfs-fuse. Since it is not simple to fix
this, all syslog() calls have been disabled for now.
The other (rather largish) change/bug-fix to the existing package in
testing/unstable is to allow read-only branches on top of read-write
I didn't fill in a Debian bug report, since I'm the maintainer and also one of
the upstream authors.
I already uploaded a 0.20-5 version to mentors yesterday noon and the final
release 0.21-1 yesterday evening to mentors.debian.org. A kind mentor then
today uploaded the package, unfortunately about 2.5 hours after your "freeze"
unionfs-fuse (0.21-1) unstable; urgency=low
