the transition will replace the old version of the library in testing. Existing packages will not be broken immediately, but they need to be removed from 'testing' in order to let the new version of libmpc migrate. Ideally all packages are updated in a timely fashion, so that no packages need to be removed from testing at all. -- Gruesse/greetings, Reinhard Tartler, KeyID 945348A4 _______________________________________________ pkg-kde-extras mailing list email@example.com http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-kde-extras
