Bug Description

Binary package hint: guile-1.6

In Intrepid we move from guile-1.6 to guile-1.8 and want to demote the former. For this we need to transition:

  gnome-games (already prepared in Debian)

autogen is a hard problem. It seems that it would work with enabling threads in guile (see, but that would break guile's ABI again, thus we can't just do that.

Uploaded guile-1.8 with thread support, uploaded autogen, demoted guile-1.6.

Now I need to rebuild the universe packages against the new guile-1.8.

Uploaded all other reverse dependencies (rebuilds against new guile).
