xaverslangasek: hello00:34
xaversomebody told me you work on mountall too. i have some trouble since 2.1300:35
weedarcould lots of "Ubuntu Archive Auto-Sync" changelog-entries in Launchpad mean that the package was without a maintainer?02:04
nhandlerweedar: Do you mean without a Debian maintainer?02:36
weedarnhandler: Well, no, the package I'm thinking of is openbios-sparc and I noticed only auto-sync entries in the changelog - The maintainer according to launchpad is the same as the maintainer in Debian02:40
nhandlerweedar: Yeah, most packages in Ubuntu don't have their own maintainer (like in Debian).02:40
weedarnhandler: I initally thought it meant that the package just came straight from Debian, without anyone checking to see if it worked. I also wondered about the link under "Uploaded by", here: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openbios-sparc/1.0-102:43
weedarIt is a link to https://launchpad.net/~katie which doesn't exist. That is why I thought katie was the old maintainer for Ubuntu and that after she deleted her account all the links turned into "auto-sync"02:44
nhandlerweedar: Yeah, that is what the Auto-Sync means. The Debian version was automatically uploaded to Ubuntu without any changes.02:44
nhandlerThat is how most packages wind up in Ubuntu02:44
ari-tczewslangasek: I sent an e-mail to you for sponsoring request 2 merges - bug 609634 and bug 60962002:48
ubottuLaunchpad bug 609634 in fetchmail (Ubuntu) "Merge fetchmail 6.3.17-4 (main) from Debian unstable (main)" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/60963402:48
ubottuLaunchpad bug 609620 in exim4 (Ubuntu) "Merge exim4 4.72-1 (main) from Debian unstable (main)" [Undecided,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/60962002:48
weedarnhandler: In this case the package (openbios-sparc) provides bios rom blobs for sparc32 and sparc64, could I change it so the Ubuntu package only provided the sparc32 rom (since compiling for sparc64 seems impossible right now) or would I have to ask the Debian maintainer to change it in Debian?02:50
weedarOr is there yet an alternative; That I could provide a openbios-sparc32 package and propose it replace openbios-sparc in universe, since the existing openbios-sparc source package fails to build and there is no install candidate for openbios-sparc?02:51
weedarI'm sorry if my question(s) was/were poorly worded - I'm just trying to understand the "politics" behind Ubuntu packaging :-)02:55

bilalakhtarlifeless: are you a core-dev ?08:45
lifelessbilalakhtar: please let the queuing process do its job; I know its higher latency than we'd all like, but it does let people get in the flow of what they are doing.08:47
bilalakhtarlifeless: I have been waiting for weeks08:49
bilalakhtarlifeless: I completely understand you people are busy and there is a lack of sponsors08:50
BlackZbilalakhtar: is it urgent?08:50
bilalakhtarBlackZ: not very much, but08:50
bilalakhtarDuring the wait, a developer will push a new version of a package, thus forcing me to update my patches08:51

bilalakhtarsorry micahg08:53
micahgbilalakhtar: well, you would then propose another merge anyway, right?08:53
bilalakhtarmicahg: yup08:53
micahgbilalakhtar: so, since the queue is long, you're saving sponsorship time by keeping the merge up to date :)08:54
* bilalakhtar is doing exactly what he and micahg are discussing08:54

bilalakhtarBlackZ: ok, I came here as FF is approaching. Won't trouble you devs anymore08:59
BlackZbilalakhtar: if the merge is requested before the FF it will not need an FFe08:59

ionmattj: The only wrong thing is the original decision on a filename like that that can’t be changed later. :-P But filenames are just for humans. As far as computers are concerned, everything could be just an anonymous inode.22:39
MattJYes, maybe... though eog refuses to open it22:40
MattJotherwise I wouldn't have noticed22:41
ionThen there is a bug in eog. No software should base its decision of file type solely on the filename.22:41
