Bug#697821: ITP: ppsspp -- ppsspp: A portable PSP emulator.


Since libpng16 is still in experimental, maybe it should be better just comment out the ppsspp-sdl in control and rules, and build just Qt, which uses this version of libpng only in the build time for the atlas and zimtool (and they build the atlas fonts). I think it's better than waiting forever for this update. PPSSPP is almost releasing its version 1.2.0...

Well, I've been receiving multiple bug reports through various lists in the past days from the libpng maintainers which asked people to fix their B-D regarding libpng-dev to prepare for libpng1.6 and setting these bugs as blockers for the transition bug.
note that most (all?) of those bugs are not filed by the maintainer, but
by another developer that seems to care more than him (or just have more
time to take care of this).
furthermore, there are more than one hundred bugs filed to date, and
ISTR not all are filed yet.  Most of those bugs involves code changes
(e.g. FTBFS with libpng1.6), not just swapping build-deps.
Those kind stuff takes several weeks, if not months.
Anyway, NMUs already started, hopefully we will be able to outline the
blockers soon enough.

And since Stretch is to be frozen on December, 5th, I'm pretty sure transition is going to start in the near future unless you have any more definitive insider information I don't have.

everybody hopes so, me too.
we deleyed this for so many years :(
