This (extended) weekend features:
Prepare an SVN snapshot of hugin, which is a panorama sticher, using libpano13 from panotools. People are so active with their GSOC students that the long-awaited 0.7.0 version isn’t released yet, hence the snapshot.
Testing is very welcome: binaries for
amd64will be available on people.d.o until the upload.
Thanks to Julien Valroff and Johan Kiviniemi for their patches, and to the NMUers who took care of hugin in the meanwhile.
Bug triaging for both of them has been quite missing lately, but hopefully that’ll get fixed soon.
Fix blender, which could have migrated, if ftgl wouldn’t be still missing on
optional:uncompileddoesn’t help. It started to FTBFS: Debian bug #490317. Against crappy upstream build system,
strace -vto the rescue (
-vis needed to get all variables, so that one can figure out why that
execvecall failed). Here’s the fixing-an-RC-bug dance for Stephen Frost, as promised:
\o_ /o/ \o\ _o/.
Oh, and I know about this tiny bug (which appears during the byte-compilation phase). I’m not very keen on trying to get it fixed myself and possibly breaking stuff, especially when upstream doesn’t care, and when the following commits are looking even more messy.
More to come…
A new graphviz upstream bugfix release is available.
As written above, a new libgphoto2 upstream release is available.
A new module, python-ssl (Debian bug #453101), might be nice. Python 2.6 got a real
sslmodule and this
python-sslmodule would be a backport of this new
sslmodule to Python versions 2.4 and 2.5. Interested people can compare the current
sslmodule API against the one available in the new
And the sponsor queue is growing, too.
