Subject: midisport-firmware; please replace Ubuntu package with package from Debian


I am not sure who this request should go to.

I am the maintainer of the Ubuntu package midisport-firmware. This package has
never worked correctly OOTB, due to changes in udev/usbfs. This will again be
the case in Hardy.

I am no longer in possession of my midisport device, which has made testing
difficult for me. Further, I'm quite busy with other things, and have neglected
to keep this package up-to-date with the udev/usbfs changes that seem to occur
once every 3-6 months, and without obvious notification for a package maintainer
like myself.

Debian now has a midisport-firmware package that should be used instead. The
potential for regression is zero, since this was already broken in Gutsy.

Please drop the Ubuntu package and sync from Debian. It would be really great
if this could be done for Hardy. I would hate to see yet another Ubuntu release
with broken support for these devices.

We can't actually sync to to different tarballs, but the changes from Debian have been merged into Ubuntu now.

midisport-firmware (1.2+dsfg1-0ubuntu4) hardy; urgency=low

  * Merge w/ debian:
    - Drop debian/po/ directory. Firmware now included.
    - Drop debian/README.Debian
    - Drop debian/{config,postinst,preinst,postrm, templates}
    - Update debian/control
    - Update debian/dirs
    - Drop debian/install
    - Add debian/menu
    - Update udev rules. (LP: #193891)
    - Fix watch file
    - Update debian/rules
    - Update Makefile.in to put firmware outside /lib.

  * In the even there is a new version this package can
    be synced. It hasn't been synced now because our version
    number (1.2+dsfg1) is greater than upstream's (1.2). Adding
    an epoch now would make this a worse situation.
