Auto-Removals from Testing and SolydXK

Postby zerozero » 02 Nov 2013 15:12

The recent (bad) surprise with the amd/ati drivers [here] is (probably) the first of several because of the new auto-removal policy from testing that debian adopted recently

in short what does this mean?
all the packages with release-critical bugs [r-c bugs count] that are not considered key packages or won't impact other packages with reverse dependences will be automatically removed from the testing suite

as i see it the goal is simple:
  • "force" the developers/maintainers to fix the bugs if they want the package to stay in debian (or to return)
  • have a release latter next year without bugs.
this message (from 2005!!) about the same subject is a lot more clear [here] (and we were not talking about automatic removals back then)

fglrx was removed and the hint #20131001 was effective on the 6th

Code: Select all

this (debian testing changes) might (in this situation) be also be useful
bliss of ignorance
