Re: Common Lisp packages for lenny

A small update now that all the RC bugs in Common Lisp packages have

I'm here asking for freeze exceptions for "only" four packages:
common-lisp-controller, ECL and CLISP and cedilla.
common-lisp-controller_6.17 was uploaded on Jul 27th, the very same day
as the lenny freeze . The differences between the version in lenny
(6.15) are only DebConf translations update:
CLISP is in a strange situation: after it was removed from testing, I
tried to solve all the FTBFS bugs, but the one appeared on s390 was a
bit too harsh and resulted in dropping s390 at least for lenny .
However, it seems that the s390 buildd tried anyway to build
clisp_2.44.1-4, which is wrong .
Together with that, while the powerpc package for clisp_2.44.1-4 was
built fine , it didn't get installed, which prevents CLISP to migrate
to testing and thus also cedilla (which depends on CLISP  and has
already a freeze exception).
You have to file a removal bug for the s390 binary still in unstable. I
gave the package back on powerpc.
ECL is a bit more complicated: 0.9j-20080306-4, uploaed on Jul 7th, has
never been tried to be built on arm and s390 since then. ECL has
already a freeze exception, so should I directly contact the arm and
s390 buildd maintainers, instead?
ecl given back on arm and s390.
