Antti-Juhani Kaijanaho: I am slow sometimes

About two weeks ago I got a mysterious bug report regarding BNFC: for some reason, builds failed on some architectures due to ldd failing mysteriously when invoked by dpkg-shlibdeps. I finally got around to tracking it down during the Easter holidays, and it turned out that GHC6 produced static executables on those arches. Eventually Ian Lynagh, the GHC6 maintainer, told me that this had been fixed. I am so slow sometimes. Instead of just uploading a new version closing this bug with a version constraint on the build-time dependency on ghc6, I just asked the submitter to retry a build with the new version. How thoughtless of me. Fixed, now.

Christoph Berg: Hacking DDPO

Over the last few weeks, I've implemented some new features in DDPO. The system, originally written by Igor Genibel, is a mix of Python, Perl, and PHP generated from WML, so it's quite interesting to see how these languages interact. The main new features are the ability to add arbitrary packages to the list displayed, and an automatic listing of all NMUs and sponsored uploads in the new "uploads" section. (Thanks to Ryan Murray, Joerg Jaspert, and Joey Schulze for helping fix the projectb for that!) I won't repeat the details here, read the d-d-a posting for that. Another nice thing is the link to Ian Lynagh's popcon graphs which I had mostly ignored so far. Have a look at my DDPO page to see the new features - feedback welcome!
