Hi, Before this transition can start, we will need a solution for amule, djmount, gmrender-resurrect and linphone (which is either RM or upload with a fix). Removing all of them leads to the following collateral damage: """ Checking reverse dependencies... # Broken Depends: kopete: kopete libosmo-abis: libosmotrau2 # Broken Build-Depends: kopete: libmediastreamer-dev (>= 3.6) libortp-dev (>= 0.13) libosmo-abis: libortp-dev libosmo-netif: libortp-dev osmo-bts: libortp-dev Dependency problem found. """ (I have not researched exactly which package causes what to break; that is an exercise left for the reader) Accordingly, if we plan on removing these packages, their dependencies are now also a part of the transition (having to move away from the packages being removed or being removed themselves - the latter leading to a rinse-and-repeat effect). So: * Which of amule, djmount, gmrender-resurrect, linphone are going to be fixed/removed? * What is and how do we handle the collateral (if any) from any removals? Thanks, ~Niels : dak rm -nR -s testing amule djmount gmrender-resurrect \ linphone gmediaserver Can be run from respighi.debian.org, which is DD-accessible.
