Please sync mailping 0.0.4-2 (universe) from Debian unstable (main)

Bug #223596 reported by Thijs Kinkhorst on 2008-04-28
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
mailping (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: mailping


mailping in Debian has seen quite some work on the package including merging of all Ubuntu changes. I think it's sensible to sync the package.

To be more explicit the Ubuntu change was a fix to define DEB_PYTHON_SYSTEM,
which is related to cdbs. The new package in unstable uses debhelper, so
this is not needed.

I tested that the package builds in hardy, and the created package
doesn't change in a significant way from the hardy package.

I'm the previous uploader of mailping. This case is a fakesync (versioning problem), and I'm preparing it.


Could you provide a fakesync for latest Debian version that doesn't use cdbs anymore?

Not syncable due to intrepid having a higher version number. Unsub'ing ubuntu-archive.

I'm unsure what has to happen to sync mailping from Debian, but the process seems stalled. The 0.0.4-2 version has quite some useful bugfixes and I believe it completely obsoletes the need for an Ubuntu diff.

Hi Thijs,

We need to "fakesync" the package. Miguel said he was going to do
it, but hasn't yet.

I'll see if someone else can do this.

Thanks for the reminder,

Months ago I uploaded a package to my PPA with a "candidate version" (0.0.4-2+final-0ubuntu1). I didn't get an official response about the version problem. Also I expected a quicker answer to my fakesync proposal (2 months).

My mailping version is available here:

If someone is happy with this version I can do it again (my HDD died weeks ago and I have lost all my ubuntu-dev stuff), but I have the know-how :)


Could you do it for jaunty ?

Thanks for your work, uploaded. I changed your version number a bit to fit in with others that we have used in the past. Also we don't include the comment about maintainer changes any more so I deleted that.
