Dear mentors, About 2 weeks ago I sent an RFS for a debian-native package/program called fsprotect (available in mentors). I just show that KDE 4.2 is entering unstable.
Can someone please consider sponsoring fsprotect? I re-send this mail as an urgent request. Using fsprotect all of us (well.. you.. I use it already :-) will be able to test the KDE 3.5 -> KDE 4.2 transition without risking anything at all. You'll only have to add "fsprotect=XXXX" as a kernel parameter and change a simple configuration file and you'll then be able to try the 3->4 transition as many times as you want. After each reboot the system will be restored to its original state and thus we'll all be able to debug KDE 4.2 upgrade before actually doing it. (assuming that fsprotect will work as expected) I suggest that you consider this as a tool (best option?) for experimenting in this big transition and push it to unstable. Thanks in advance, Harhalakis Stefanos p.s. I'm cross-posting this to pkg-kde-talk, since you may want to try this even using the package from mentors (which is in a good shape). p.s.2. I'm only subscribed to debian-mentors so please CC me as needed. -- http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-kde-talk
