Most of those changes do not affect Ubuntu, and the rest are very minor in nature. An SRU requires a narrow, specific patch to fix a critical bug, so this is not a candidate for one.

Ok, can you upload it in quantal please?

Benjamin Drung (bdrung) wrote :

Shouldn't this package be uploaded to Debian first?

Phillip Susi (psusi) wrote :

Yes, it needs uploaded to debian, and then it will be automatically synced.

Benjamin Drung (bdrung) wrote :

Do you need a Debian sponsor? Please make sure that the package is lintian clean and you might want to check the bug report with patches attached.

Settings to triaged, it's not fix commited and there is no specific reason to block on Debian if they are not responsive there...

@Benjamin, do you plan to help getting it uploaded to Debian?
