Bug#659050: please link with botan1.10

Package: monotone
Version: 1.0-3
Severity: normal
Tags: patch


I would like to get rid of botan1.8 before wheezy releases,
so can you please change monotone to link with botan1.10?

I think here is the patch:

Exploring the possibility of an l10n upload of monotone to fix pending po-debconf l10n bugs

Dear Debian maintainer,

("oh no, not him again"...)

The monotone Debian package, which you are the maintainer of, has
pending bug report(s) which include translation updates or fixes
for po-debconf, namely bug number 650852 (and maybe other similar bugs).

So, sorry for this, but the radar beeped at your package and here am I
with what I usually call an "NMU intent"...:-). Please take this as a "very
soft" NMU intent. Of course, there is no hurry or deadline...just
"old" bugs we think are easy to get rid of.

In case you can't update your package, I hereby propose, as part
of a more general action of the Debian i18n Task Force to build and
possibly upload a non-maintainer upload for monotone in order to fix
this as well as all pending translations for the debconf templates.

Of course, as you're probably pretty active on that package, an upload
by you would also be OK...as long as it allows a round of translation

Such changes are always harmless, which explains why I safely consider
building NMUs for such issues even though they're obviously non critical.

The schedule for the NMU (in case it happens, that is if you agree with it
or if I don't receive any answer in 4 days) is roughly the following:

 Friday, March 02, 2012   : send this notice
 Tuesday, March 06, 2012       : post a NMU announcement to debian-i18n with you
