sugar and co



Hi,

sugar-calculate-activity
sugar-chat-activity
sugar-memorize-activity
sugar-pippy-activity
sugar-web-activity
sugar-sharingtest-activity

are all effected by serious bugs which can either be fixed via t-p-u or with 
new upstream versions via unstable. (Or via removals of the affected 
packages.)

Personally I think 0.81 (=what's in lenny currently) is not worth releasing 
with, as every sugar deployment in the world (mostly ~1mio XO laptops, but 
there are other deployments on other hardware coming) now has switched to 
0.82 and 0.81 is also not supported upstream anymore.

OTOH, sugar has no reverse depends (well, except education-desktop-sugar from 
Debian Edu, we/I will handle that, whatever the outcome will be), is optional 
and is also pretty new and pretty outstanding in its field of use, so I would 
really appreciate if you could make a huge exception and let sugar 0.82 in.

But the point is, broken sugar packages cannot effect anything else than 
sugar.

So, I kindly ask you to not call me crazy (you'll probably do so anyway) and 
unblock those packages. 

I'd understand if you'd say "no" for consistency reasons (there are lots of 
packages which cannot effect others...) but for the sake of the children of 
the world I'm asking. Sugar is truely something new and exciting and it would 
be great, if Debian lenny would be a first class basis for it.


regards,
	Holger
