Catfish does not insulate against permission errors in it's settings file management. This should be fixed in a later release.

An upload of catfish to bionic-proposed has been rejected from the upload queue for the following reason: "bugs linked in the changelog do not have SRU templates and it's unclear they should;".

There is a catfish upload in the bionic-proposed queue referencing this bug but this is not on track for inclusion in bionic-proposed. This bug lacks an SRU bug template. Please either update all bugs referenced in the changelog to include SRU templates (including test cases), or reupload dropping the bug references to the individual bugfixes and include only the reference to the microrelease exception request (

In the meantime I am rejecting this package from the queue. If you choose to update these bugs with test cases rather than dropping the bug references, then you can ping a member of the SRU team directly to recover this SRU from the rejected queue for reconsideration, or you can just reupload to the queue yourself.
