[FFe] Please merge Blam 1.8.6 from Debian Unstable

Bug #339863 reported by Jo Shields on 2009-03-09
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
blam (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: blam

Despite having been updated for the Mono 2.0 transition, Blam appears to still have 1.0 dependencies. This has been tracked down - to a binary-only library on orig.tar.gz. This has been replaced in the latest upstream with some equivalent (but incompatible) source.

In addition, the rendering engine has been switched from the troublesome (and abandoned upstream) Gecko#, to the up-and-coming Webkit# (which has fringe benefits such as easier compilation and becoming arch-all instead of arch-any).

I'm requesting a FFe for Blam, primarily to address the first issue (where the second issue comes in as a consequence).

I've tested compilation, installation & execution in a Jaunty VM, and it seems fine; it has no rdeps. I don't forsee any problems (or at the very least I can't see it being made worse than it is now, with binary-only components shipped in the package source)

Looks good. The only thing you're missing seems to be debian/patches/PlanetUbuntu.patch
