One of the great things within Debian is how fast things happen if they are
important. The php5-FTBFS-bug
was fixed already yesterday. I'm now looking into more details of that
transition, as my usual strategy is first to look at packages not updated
at all architectures. Yesterday I took a deeper look into amd64-specific
packages not updated to the new library yet. A few packages are just not
uploaded yet (that's normal).
Three packages had RC bugs without patch for "doesn't build anymore" since
(asterisk-addons as #534037
since June 21st,
mysql-gui-tools as #527652
since May 8th and
ulogd as #527534 since May
7th). The first two packages are as of this writing already pending
removal, the third might follow any minute.
This is one of the bad things of unhandled RC bugs: They make us way more
work, and they are really pending for removal from testing. Another few
packages got fresh RC bugs for not building. Also e.g. pike7.6
does need an upload, but with
So the conclusion is: However (un)important an RC bug looks to you, it is
necessary that it is fixed as soon as possible. Please fix it.
Fix it now. There is no use in waiting, things will only get worse. And if
there are reasons for not uploading now, please document them, and make
sure there is at least a patch in your bug report.
