Hi, this is upstream.

Needless to say, I support this request for upgrading the Debian packages for libti*/gfm/tilp, so as to bring Debian, Ubuntu, Mint and other Debian derivatives in line with Arch and openSUSE ;)
I notified the package maintainer when I released TILP II 1.14, and again when I released TILP II 1.15.

As all users of distributions without proper libti*/gfm/tilp packages, users of Debian and derivatives have been successfully using http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/download/install_tilp.sh for more than two years, but it would of course be better if they were able to install precompiled packages :)

BTW: for the best usability, the libticables package needs to provide a udev definitions file, as described in the CONFIG file from libticables, and reminded by install_tilp.sh. If it already does, good, but I know that not all libticables packages in the wild do.

Hello there,

I've noticed that you have updated this bug to indicate that you're working on updating libti*/gfm/tilp to the latest stable release. On the Debian side, I had started doing that task as well, after obtaining permission from the current package maintainer, who will be orphaning his packages and transferring the maintainership to me.

I think that we should join our forces to streamline the package update process. :) Therefore, I'd like to know your plans on updating the packages Ubuntu side. On the Debian side, I'm rushing to get packages done in order to meet the deadline for the package freeze at the end of the month (June 30th). I'm pushing a new package in, TilEm, which uses the libti* libraries. I will be taking over the maintainer position for all of the previous maintainer's calculator related packages. (I'm not a Debian Maintainer or Debian Developer, so I will be looking for a sponsor in order to upload packages.) TiLP, GFM, and all of the libbti* related packages will be marked as "important" to reflect the important security and stability fixes that the update will bring. Hopefully this will allow the update to propagate faster. I'm merging Ubuntu's work with the packages, Debian's package, and the new update to make this all work. There are some fixes made to the Debian side (and consequently, need to be made Ubuntu side).

I think it would be more efficient to split up the package update work. Please let me know if you can help - I'd love to work with you to meet our deadlines.

-Albert
