RCBW - week #13

Here are this week squashes, by yours truly:

  • 30/11/2009 Debian bug #499516 - drbd8-utils - avoid stop HA cluster during upgrades (sponsor upload by Iustin Pop)
  • 01/12/2009 Debian bug #530673 - xsmbrowser - avoid passing -N/-U together (patch by Michael Bode)
  • 02/12/2009 Debian bug #510567 - libgpgme11 - enable support for gpgconf (patch by Sven Eckelmann)
  • 03/12/2009 Debian bug #553162 - icomlib - add missing ${shlibs:Depends} (bonus points: fix kfreebsd build)
  • 04/12/2009 Debian bug #553223 - ldapdns - add missing ${shlibs:Depends} (malus points: fought with Yada)
  • 05/12/2009 Debian bug #553250 - posixlock - add missing ${shlibs/misc:Depends}
  • 06/12/2009 Debian bug #552769 - leptonlib - remove /usr/bin/ subdir

And here are the usual highlights:

  • Luk's list has worked worse than last week, since last weekend BSPs have stolen "my" bugs! :-)
  • in fact, a lot of people is stealing my bugs (i.e., bugs that I had put on my watch list): hello azeem, gregoa, frankie, ...
    That's very good, I now have the feeling that NMU enthusiasm is growing
  • having to deal with Yada for ldapdns has been, errr, an experience
  • Debian News mentioned RCBW, I'm flattered!
    (BTW, anyone knows why Debian News is not on -planet? I'm subscribed to it cause it is very useful, but it seems pointless not to have it on Planet, given how many other less-Debian-related-posts we have there ...)
Debian Planet policy
Zack, to my understanding, Debian Planet has a policy of allowing only contributor personal blogs. I would be happy to add it to planet if it is not the case :)

Congratulations on fixing the bug in ldapdns; I had a look at it too but lost the battle against yada :/

(And your RCBW -- together with the BSP last weekend -- indeed raised my motivation for fighting RC bugs.)

(Nitpick alert) I think you're flattered. I wouldn't want you to be flattened; else you won't be able to fix more bugs till you're filled up again! ;-)

re: flattered
errr, quite so Kumar, thanks for spotting the (quite bad) typo :-)

re: yada

actually, I was really near to lose the battle with yada, then I discovered /usr/share/doc/yada-doc/yada.txt.gz , maybe it will help you next time (but I hope you will not face the need actually :-) )

the fact that I've motivated you, is enough as a reward for all the NMUs: kudos to the master (you) which did the most upload that actually got delivered in Lenny.
