I'm sorry, but I disagree with the reason to close the bug report. It is not
true that this bug refers to an upgrade "while Sarge was still testing".
Sarge was release on 6 June 2005, I upgraded on 5 July 2005, and filed the
bug report on the same day.
I cannot test whether this report still holds, as I don't have a woody
system available, but I thought the upgrade-reports exists to avoid problems
in future releases, and if the report is closed with the explanation that "I
think this report no longer applies", I cannot be satisfied. (It is possible
that this particular bug reports falls in the category "the rest most likely
do not matter". Except that for me it *did* matter, and there was clearly
some issue with the festlex-poslex package.)
Anyway, if the developers think the bug should be closed anyway, I will
not argue further. But the reasons given to close it do not apply here.
