ppc64-diag (2.7.1-6) unstable; urgency=medium * Import patch set from Mauricio Faria de Oliveira to support Marvell HDD LEDs on S822LC for HPC (LP: #1650596) and commited in Ubuntu Zesty by Steve Langasek (2.7.1-5ubuntu1) -- Frédéric Bonnard <fre...@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Fri, 13 Jan 2017 13:36:03 +0100 On Thu, 12 Jan 2017 17:25:45 +0100, Frederic Bonnard <fre...@linux.vnet.ibm.com> wrote: > On Thu, 12 Jan 2017 16:10:46 +0000 (UTC), Gianfranco Costamagna > <locutusofb...@debian.org> wrote: > > Hello, > > > > >Would it be possible to do a 2.7.1-6 version of the package in unstable > > >with the patches from Zesty so that we have this improvement in stretch, > > >even if 2.7.3 is available ?
