libcurl4-openssl no longer exists

Bug #124008 reported by Bogdan Butnaru on 2007-07-04
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
curl (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: curl

Somewhere between and the libcurl4-openssl package disappeared.

I don't know if that's intentional (libcurl4-openssl-dev still exists, apparently), but it's wreaking havoc with the package dependencies:

This is intentional and known about. There are roughly forty packages that are affected by the libcurl migration, and we are working on that. Just due to the sheer number of packages it is going to take a few days to sort out.

Changed in curl:
status: New → Invalid

OK. I'll check it out in a few days. I didn't see any comments on that around the net.

Is there any way of installing something in the meantime without breaking the installed packages? (Ignoring the mess with openssl?)

I've been thinking: Shouldn't this bug be left "open" (or "in progress") until the migration is deemed complete? (It's still a bug even though it's "intentional" because it's not wanted behavior, it's a temporary side-effect of a change, like a (known) regression... right?)

Since there are so many packages, there should be a way to know when things "should" be complete. That way I can tell if I get update errors because it's still being worked on or if I actually have something broken.
