I think I replied to every single mail from debian-release that deserved an answer. > I'm totally annoyed by the lack of coordination, generating > unnecessary work etc. So do I, in the other way. At least the email to d-d-a improved that, and I do not think following its recommendation can make anything worse. > Can we please come to an plan how to fix that mess which doesn't > involve the upload of more than 200 source packages and ties them to > this transition?

I proposed to do that on debian-release already, but this was rejected. So I will state it a last time: I propose to upload the libjpeg6b source package that generate libjpeg62 and libjpeg6b-dev (*not* libjpeg62-dev) and to upload libjpeg8 source package that generate a libjpeg8-dev that provides both libjpeg62-dev and libjpeg-dev. Do the release team want me to do that ? Cheers, -- Bill. <firstname.lastname@example.org> Imagine a large red swirl here.
