This (extended) weekend features: pkg-phototools
- Update libgphoto2 which is used (surprise!) by gphoto2 and others to access digital cameras. Some hours after 2.4.1-1 got uploaded, 2.4.2 got released. Got to get back to it soon
- Prepare an SVN snapshot of hugin,
which is a panorama sticher, using libpano13 from
panotools. People are so
their GSOC students
that the long-awaited 0.7.0 version isn t released yet, hence the
Testing is very welcome: binaries for
amd64will be available on people.d.o until the upload. Thanks to Julien Valroff and Johan Kiviniemi for their patches, and to the NMUers who took care of hugin in the meanwhile.
- Bug triaging for both of them has been quite missing lately, but hopefully that ll get fixed soon.
- Fix blender, which could have migrated, if
ftgl wouldn t be still missing on
optional:uncompileddoesn t help. It started to FTBFS: bug #490317. Against crappy upstream build system,
strace -vto the rescue (
-vis needed to get all variables, so that one can figure out why that
execvecall failed). Here s the fixing-an-RC-bug dance for Stephen Frost, as promised:
\o_ /o/ \o\ _o/. The
Add > Textcrash (bug #487890) got fixed too, although I didn t get any ACK from upstream. Oh, and I know about this tiny bug (which appears during the byte-compilation phase). I m not very keen on trying to get it fixed myself and possibly breaking stuff, especially when upstream doesn t care, and when the following commits are looking even more messy.
- Update sunflow, a rendering system for photo-realistic image synthesis, it can now happily depend on better Java packages now that openjdk-6 made it through NEW.
- A new graphviz upstream bugfix release is available.
- As written above, a new libgphoto2 upstream release is available.
- A new module, python-ssl
(bug #453101), might be nice. Python 2.6 got a real
sslmodule and this
python-sslmodule would be a backport of this new
sslmodule to Python versions 2.4 and 2.5. Interested people can compare the current
sslmodule API against the one available in the new
- And the sponsor queue is growing, too.
