    So downgrading bugs to non-RC severity (with appropriate rationale)
    does not count in the great cookie contest?

    Does bribing lucas into not using grid5k anymore works too ?

    I'm not sure that filing lots of bugs about missing Depends on
    update-inetd really delays the release. Chris Lamb is fixing those bugs
    faster than I file them anyway

    You mean like this one?

    http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=502706

    Can I refer to

    http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=466114

    and

    http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel.../msg01013.html



    One thing I have noticed about this is that update-inetd
    contains /usr/share/perl5/DebianNet.pm, but other implementations
    don't, so what should a package using the perl interface do?

    Thanks,

    James

    If everything goes the way I want it to be, it won't be just lucas the one
    filing reports: I asked lucas if he could do the remove/purge test in lenny and
    the full install/remove/purge test in etch (yeah, you know, there were some
    changes in etch since r0 that could make packages break).

    [This is also a way to remind lucas about my email ]

    Cheers,
    Raphael

    I'll do that.

    That's not going to be easy.

    Please choose randomly 100 packages that are in etch. Then run the test
    you want to run using piuparts, and check that you don't find any FP.
    Adapt piuparts if you find problems. Provide me with a (modified)
    piuparts that does the test correctly, a list of (binary) packages in
    etch that I should test, and an etch chroot (as a tarball) I can use to
    test into.

    IOW, please turn this from "please fix piuparts for me" to "please
    provide computing power".

    Hmm, I wouldn't expect piuparts causing more FPs in etch than in lenny or sid;
    though I'll check some packages just make sure.

    WTF? Packages other than inetd daemons MUST NOT depend on update-inetd.
    Doing that is WRONG.

    Are common maintainer scripts problems documented somewhere ? It would
    be very interesting to start a developers-reference chapter about such
    things.
