Bug#606222: freeue exception: googleearth-package/0.6.1

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: freeze-exception
x-debbugs-cc: adnan@foolcontrol.org


please let googleearth-package back into squeeze contrib.

Removal of packages is a reasonable way forward at this stage of the release, 
IMHO, especially for "pet" packages. Given that googleearth (whether you like 
it or not) has millions of users I think it's reasonable to let it in again.

The changes to the package are reviewable:

$ debdiff googleearth-package_0.5.7.dsc googleearth-package_0.6.1.dsc|diffstat
 debian/changelog         |   37 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 debian/control           |    7 +++----
 debian/source/format     |    1 +
 make-googleearth-package |   19 ++++++++++++-------

The maintainer cared, a fixed version was available on mentors.debian.net on 
December 1st, just nobody cared to upload :( 

And true, Adnan should have also notified the bug and the mentors list, but 
well, he is in the new maintainer process and still learning. I'd think he 
learned this lesson by now. ;) (*)

I'm subscribed to the package in the PTS and will together with Adnan make 
sure it stays in good shape.



(*) it also would be nice if mentors.d.n could automatically mark bugs as 
pending, when a package is available fixing a bug, just like it is done by 
NEW. Will suggest this in a new thread on -mentors@
