--- Begin Message ---Package: debian-policy Severity: wishlist -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Hi, following on my earlier informal probe, I'd like to request that package names matching "*-*-cross" be reserved for cross compilation; the asterisk stands for any non-empty sequence of characters legal in package names. Existing packages are considered grandfathered in, as it is pretty unlikely that we will have an architecture called "fdisk". Proposed text (to be appended to 5.6.7): Names ending in "-cross" that have at least two dashes overall are reserved for cross compilation support, and should not be used directly.

The reasons for closing fall into the following categories, from most frequent to least frequent: - issue is appropriate for Policy, there is a consensus on how to fix the problem, but preparing the patch is very time-consuming and no-one has volunteered to do it, and we do not judge the issue to be important enough to keep an open bug around; - issue is appropriate for Policy but there does not yet exist a consensus on what should change, and no recent discussion. A fresh discussion might allow us to reach consensus, and the messages in the old bug are unlikely to help very much; or - issue is not appropriate for Policy. If you feel this bug is still relevant and want to restart the discussion, you can re-open the bug. However, please consider instead opening a new bug with a message that summarises and condenses the previous discussion, updates the report for the current state of Debian, and makes clear exactly what you think should change. A lot of these old bugs have long side tangents and numerous messages, and that old discussion is not necessarily helpful for figuring out what Debian Policy should say today. -- Sean Whitton
