Dear Francesco, This patch has been available since early February now, and without it a number of packages are blocked. Those include new packages for Salomé and Code-Aster, a mpi-defaults transition for Octave, and a working version of med-fichier. With the freeze coming up soon, it would help a lot of people to get this done, as these engineering simulation packages could enter Debian in time for the squeeze release.
Also, mpi-defaults in unstable still uses lam, so the patch is still current, though it won't be for long. What more do you need to make this happen? How can I help? -Adam On Wed, 2010-02-03 at 09:29 -0500, Adam C Powell IV wrote: > tags 510057 +patch > thanks > > Hello Francesco, > > On Wed, 2010-01-27 at 14:28 -0500, Adam C Powell IV wrote: > > On Wed, 2010-01-27 at 20:10 +0100, Francesco P.
