exception for package: abiword
Hello Release Team,
There are ugly crash bugs in current abiword (2.8.2) that have been
dealt with in later releases.
I'm proposing an an exception to see that that the latest version is
included in squeeze. The katest abiword has now been uploaded to the FTP
archive's queue (2010-10-28; delayed/2).
The update of abiword was discussed in #debian-release 2010-10-20 12:46
(Josselin Mouette) with regards to the status of goffice being solved
first. This appears to be done according to
