ajmitchhi azeem00:24
jmarsden|workScottK: You don't *have* to use the topic message of #launchpad though ;)00:24
ScottKMy current frustration is trying to understand how after all the investment in making translations wonderful with Rosetta, we managed to release Intrepid with KDE translations substantially worse than what upstream provides.00:24
ScottKjmarsden|work: True, but that's one place I'd look for help with the tools I do need to use.00:25
nelleryDoes anybody have any ideas to what is caused this FTBFS? http://paste.ubuntu.com/76970/00:27
azeemnellery: looks like some misconfigured pbuilder, maybe?00:28
nelleryazeem: it fails in a PPA as well00:28
azeemnellery: what about debhelper (>= 5.0.51~), are you sure that version is legal in Build-Depends?00:28
nellerythe current Jaunty package also fails, but I believe it succeeds in Intrepid00:29
nelleryazeem: I haven't modified that, and it worked previously00:29
james_wnellery: I saw a kind of related bug report00:29
ScottKazeem: That's legal.00:29
nelleryjames_w: do you recall in which package?00:31
james_wnellery: I can't find it now00:32
james_wI decided it wasn't the same bug though00:32
james_wit may be that this package is part way through some sort of transition in jaunty00:32

macoi packaged swfdec 0.8.2 for my own use on hardy.  i see it's not packaged for jaunty yet.  can i change the source package to say jaunty and then do um, something with it to get it in jaunty's universe?01:18
StevenKI note swfdec isn't in either Debian or Ubuntu01:20
macoit's libswfdec01:20
macolibswfdec-0.6, libswfdec-0.7, and libswfdec-0.8-001:21
macooh wait01:21
macowell that's confusing. nevermind01:21
macoit's still called -0.8 even though in jaunty it's 0.8.2, so that's just confusing naming01:22
Elbrustwo comments for https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates01:24
Elbrus1: I would assume that licensing issues are also a reason for SRU: if yes, that should be added01:24
Elbrus2: is there a recommended naming convention for SRU packages?01:24
asomethingI could have sworn that page used to recommend a naming convention of bumping up the version by a point for SRUs like so: XubuntuX.X      but I don't see it anymore01:29
asomethingeg: a SRU to pidgin version 1:2.5.2-0ubuntu1 would be 1:2.5.2-0ubuntu1.101:30
ScottKasomething: It's -security where that's a rule.  For SRU it's not hard and fast, but that's a good practice to follow.01:31
ryanakcaWhen merging, should one remove DM-Upload-Allowed: yes , or does Ubuntu ignore the field?01:31

dholbachhi SUNWjoejaxx07:18
SUNWjoejaxxdholbach: has the policy changed for merges?07:19
dholbachSUNWjoejaxx: what do you mean?07:20
SUNWjoejaxxdholbach: ie getting in contact with the original merger07:20
SUNWjoejaxxdholbach: i have not done merges in a while :P07:20
dholbach"Before starting to work on the merge, you should check with the previous maintainer and/or the previous uploader, if they intend to work on the merge themselves. They might give you useful tips as well, even if they delegate the task to you. The DaD site also has a comments field where you can often find notes about the merge."07:21
dholbachat some time in the cycle I guess merges are going to be deemed "free for all"07:21
SUNWjoejaxxoh ok07:21
dholbachand I can't remember that that kind of announce went out for this cycle yet :)07:22
dholbacha quick ping is ususally good enough07:22
SUNWjoejaxxdholbach: thanks for the info07:22
SUNWjoejaxxi just wanted to know whether the standard procedure had changed or not :D07:22

directhexslytherin, i mostly want buildy, so crashy doesn't fuss me09:37
xerxasanyone know where to get a xen dom0 kernel for intrepid ?09:52
slytheringeser: I remember now. libjboss-cache1-java still fails to build. So unless we find solution for that or all reverse-build-depends of libjboss-cache1-java start using libjboss-cache2-java (currently in Debian NEW), there is no way out of that mess.10:02
geserwould using libjboss-cache2-java solve the FTBFS?10:03
slytheringeser: that is what my analysis in last dev cycle concluded. I can redo the analysis again.10:11
geserwhat about the new libjboss-cache1-java package in NEW? Might that new upstream version also fix the FTBFS?10:18
slytheringeser: haven't checked. I can try building local packages.10:20

kamghi.. I have a package question:  I've installed virtualbox-ose version 1.5.6-dfsg-6ubuntu1, but when I open it and go to Help=>About, it says it's 1.6.2.  And for some reason it doesn't jive with the drivers that are installed as a separate package.  Might the version mismatch be a sign of my problem, or am I going down the rabbit-hole?18:23
slytherinjames_w`: the change for lucene2 has landed in pkg-java svn. So let's hope we will have a new package by tomorrow.18:23
james_w`slytherin: cool18:24
jdongleleobhz: I noticed you made the last attempt to package Handbrake; I'm looking at 0.9.3 right now, do you still have interest to continue your package on REVU?18:24
slytherinkamg: you probably have two parallel installations and the one you are launching is different than you are expecting18:24
kamgyep I thought that too, but when apt-get remove, what I was using goes away18:25
slytherinkamg: on command line enter command - which virtualbox - to see which binary is being used.18:26
