Considering removal of simgear from testing
As the subject suggests, I am considering the removal of simgear from
testing. The reason is that it suffers from 3 unique FTBFS and it is a
a part of a transition (openscenegraph). I did consider NMUing it,
but I have no clue where to start with #634088.
Two of the RC bugs are more than 2 months old with no feedback from
the maintainer(s), the last one is only a couple of days old.
According to dak it still has some reverse dependencies, namely
fgfs-atlas, fgrun and flightgear.
flightgear: Has same maintainers as simgear. It also have its own RC
bug #634424, but it is too young in my eyes to be grounds
for removal. This package is also a part of the
fgrun: Under the same team as simgear (but different uploader). No RC
bugs itself to my knowledge.
fgfs-atlas: Maintained by the uploader of simgear. No RC bugs itself to
On a related note, these packages have a "RFH" bug #487388.
Note: openscenegraph is waiting for poppler as well:
 #556348 - upgraded to RC 1st of May
#622059 - filed as RC on 9th of April
 $ dak rm -nR -s testing simgear
