Bug#756508: nmu: twig_1.15.1-1

Severity: normal
User: <at>
Usertags: binnmu

nmu twig_1.15.1-1 . ALL . -m "Rebuild for phpapi-20131226"

The twig package was prepared in April, and just passed NEW; in the
meantime, PHP was upgraded in Debian, with a different API.  Hence,
one of the binary packages can't install on sid.  Since the control
file uses a dynamic variable to generate the dependencies on phpapi-*,
I suppose a binNMU would be the normal way to get an installable

Bug#756505: undocumented how to show a buffer

Package: mcabber
Version: 0.10.1-3
Severity: important

The mcabber documentation doesn't say how to display a desired chat
buffer.  Joining a room (/room join) creates a chat buffer, the existence
of the buffer can be seen (/buffer list), and some buffer can be shown
by entering chat mode (<enter>), but the documentation doesn't indicate
any way to select *which* buffer is shown in chat mode.  In fact the
"[status]" buffer is initially shown, so there's no documented way to
display an actual room buffer.  I presume there is some way, obviously
undocumented.  That such a critical function is not documented seriously
damages the usability of this program to people who don't already know
how to use it.

Bug#756503: python3-libtorrent is broken because of string handling

Package: python3-libtorrent
Version: 0.16.17-1
Severity: important


I do not believe that the package should ship the python3 module until
it is usable. This upstream bugreport is relevant:

At the very least the package should express somewhere that the python3
module ships with severely limited functionality. To reproduce the
error, either save the state of a session as in the upstream bugreport:

	import libtorrent as lt
	ses = lt.session()
	ses.listen_on(6821, 6831)

Or try to load a torrent from a file:

	import libtorrent as lt
	with open("my.torrent", "rb") as f:
		content =
	e = lt.bdecode(content)

Both will result in UnicodeDecodeError which makes the module not usable
for its intended purpose.

Bug#756502: Remove "recommends" consolekit?

Package: acpi-support-base
Version: 0.140-5+deb7u1

Further to bug 678524 and bug 665987, can I suggest dropping the
recommendation of ConsoleKit altogether? says "ConsoleKit
is currently not actively maintained." and it doesn't seem to make
sense on a server.

Any news on this? Everybody is migrating to IPv6 right now. It
