done hereby (not sure if opening a freeze-exception bug is that accurate
for this sort of request, but i didn't found anything more suitable, and
bts is preferable over plain mails on the list).
live-debconfig contains the stand-alone parts from live-config that's
needed for 'build-time' configuration of systems, including live systems
and lxc systems.
it was split out from live-config due to popular demand, see ftp-masters
thread for the history why it was in src:live-config in the first place
rather than it's own src package (beginning of june).
live-debconfig however is in NEW now since some days, and i need to know
if ftp-masters will process the package so that it can go to unstable
first, and eventually and if RM agrees, go to wheezy. if not, i will
need to stuff the contend back into src:live-config.
ftp-masters however say, that they need RM consent to even let it to
unstable first (which actually confuses me a bit, since other completely
new packages, e.g. crtools, were processed just fine and are now in
at debconf, luk said that he agrees to have the package in unstable
first, and then go from there and see, if it can go to wheezy at a later
point (which is ok, since we'll need a few
translation/documentation-update uploads of that package anyway before
we consider asking for an unblock).
so.. does the release-team allow ftp-master to process that package?
unrelated to that, but similar: we'll intend to upload another new
package, live-examples, that will carry the configuration trees for
live-build for the official debian-live images for wheezy (see e.g.
http://live.debian.net/gitweb/?p=config-gnome-desktop.git). do you
need/want a seperate request for that too in order to allow ftp-masters
to process the package (in advance, or afterwards?), or should i just
upload the package normally?
