  1. Bug#450922: Acknowledgement (minc: New version avialable) (fwd)

    Hi,

    I'm wondering whether I did something wrong when filing a "New version
    available" bug against a source package. The package in question is
    called "minc" and is listed as source package at

    http://packages.debian.org/source/minc

    as well as former bugs are stored in BTS against this package:

    http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?src=minc

    When I filed a bug against the package reportbug told me that it was
    unable to find a source or binary package with that name and I assumed
    that it was a missing deb-src line in my sources.list and ignored this
    warning. Strangely enough I got back the message below that the
    report was sent to unknown-package@qa.debian.org.

    To circumvent the problem I reassigned the bug to one of the binary
    packages which will at least serve the issue to inform the maintainer,
    but I wonder whether there is a bug in debbugs that causes this problem.
    It might be connected to #414825 or #435926 - but I guess it is a
    different problem.

    Kind regards

    Andreas.

    Other than completely messing up the pseudo-headers in your BR, no ;-)

    Your report has:
    Package: n
    Severity: wishlist
    File: minc

    Package "n" is obviously incorrect...

    Cheers,
    FJP

    It was not me! ;-)
    I blame reportbug for this.
    But I can not verify it ... hmmm.

    It can't be true that it was me - I want to blame reportbug anyway.

    ;-)


    Sorry for the noise

    Andreas.
