I'm in contact with a release manager as well > (hello dato). Here is my findings about etch/lenny packages WRT the 6 removed symbols (looking at main). Packages both in etch and in lenny: ----------------------------------- libprintsys/etch: OK (basic symbols) libprintsys/lenny: OK (basic symbols) pconf-detect/etch: OK (linked in, no symbols) pconf-detect/lenny: OK (linked in, no symbols) Packages only in lenny: ----------------------- fdm/lenny: OK (only a few symbols) python-tdb/lenny: OK (lots of symbols, built from the same source) Packages only in etch: ---------------------- adept-installer/etch: OK (linked in, no symbols) adept-manager/etch: OK (linked in, no symbols) adept-notifier/etch: OK (linked in, no symbols) adept-updater/etch: OK (linked in, no symbols) libprinterconf0c2a/etch: OK (linked in, no symbols) tagcolledit/etch: OK (linked in, no symbols) tdb-tools/etch: OK (lots of symbols) Note that it still can break locally-built packages or pieces of software. I think you could consider downgrading the severity, or tagging it lenny-ignore since there seem to be no collateral damages within Debian. That said, I guess a t-p-u upload to fix #510886 and a binNMU of fdm will do the job (I didn't check yet it needs a >= on the lenny version, but I guess it'd be a a nice-to-have anyway). Mraw, KiBi.
