Fusionforge fails-to-install cleanup
Dear Ubuntu release managers,
please remove all versions of the source packages gforge and fusionforge 5.x (older than 5.1), i.e. these:
The version in oneiric 5.1-5 should be fine, and the version in lucid and older should be fine as long as they are not kept (or upgraded to 5.1 immediately) on a system with multiarch libc or a Python version that Breaks: gforge-web-apache2 (< 5.0.1+svn10155)
Once you have removed these versions from the affected releases, you _can_, if it is desired, add backports of the 5.1 version to them. Otherwise, point users to https:/
The Fusionforge for Debian packaging team has decided we cannot invest the time and effort to provide packages for inclusion into Ubuntu, sorry. It was felt that the packages uploaded to Debian proper are “good enough” and official, and Ubuntu should be able to take them and “backport” to their releases when there are Ubuntu-specific problems (such as switching to multiarch MUCH earlier than Debian).
But please, do remove the 5.0* versions from the releases. They are broken and will not be fixed. (I have no idea how the Launchpad version of an RM (RoM) in Debian works, but guess subscribing ubuntu-release would be my best bet.) They currently produce a lot of “duplicate bug spam”.
I am one of the Fusionforge contributors, although not currently listed in the Uploaders field; the others are even less willing to deal with Ubuntu issues, so I decided to at least look at the problems.
