Bug Description

Currently on Saucy, darktable 1.2.2-2ubuntu1 crashes[1] any time I try to export Canon RAW photos.

Although I haven't yet tracked down the cause of this crash, I do know that merging darktable 1.2.3-1 from Debian testing (or unstable, same version) fixes it. So I think I can make a pretty strong case for why this should get a Feature Freeze Exception:

 * Even if this crash[1] only effects Canon users, it means darktable in Saucy is completely useless for Canon users (who probably make up the largest group of RAW photo users on Ubuntu); it's likely this crash also effects Nikon users, etc, although I haven't confirmed that yet

 * The upstream darktable 1.2.3 release[2] seems like a low-risk release focused on stability and security fixes, and additional hardware support

 * System76 recently did some marketing around darktable[3], so it would make us look a bit silly if this photography workflow wasn't actually possible on Ubuntu 13.10 (a regression)

 * There's no short way to present the evidence for this, but Ubuntu is well positioned at an opportune time to pick up pro-creative users from some "other platform", so let's please always put our best foot forward :)

Note that when I encountered this crash, my first thought was an ABI change in some dependency, but alas, a rebuild didn't fix it.

If it's bugfix only, no FFe needed.

Gotcha, thanks! So no FFe needed, even when it's a new upstream release? (Albeit a minor-ish point release.)

Should I change the title of the bug? Anything special I need to do to get this reviewed and merged?

Scott Kitterman (kitterman) wrote :

Done. We care about the content of the release, not the number it's labeled with. As long as it's no new features, no FFe is needed.

summary: - [FFE] please merge darktable 1.2.3-1 from Debian testing
