Bug#607644: #607644 - couldn't upload .JPG, only .jpg

Package: iceweasel
Version: 30.0-2

Dear Maintainer,

Uploading of .JPG pictures works just fine.

Since the bug report 3.5 years ago, no more information on the bug was

The <extend depict… syntax appears to be a flash uploader (hence
site-specific) problem [1].

The initial website does not exist anymore (it moved on a .net domain
name and probably changed it's api since then).

I believe this bug can safely be closed.

Bug#755795: Further information

For reference the error on boot was

  dracut Warning: /dev/path/to/disk does not exist

and the fix (without the suggested patch) is to use a
file in /etc/dracut.conf.d/ (maybe named virtio_blk.conf) containing

  # We need virtio_blk for this machine to boot

Best wishes

Bug#755801: libdc1394-22: run dh-autoreconf to update config.{sub, guess} and {libtool, aclocal}.m4

Package: libdc1394-22
Version: 2.2.1-2
Severity: normal
Tags: patch
User: debian-powerpc <at> lists.debian.org
Usertags: ppc64el
User: debian-devel <at> lists.debian.org
Usertags: autoreconf

Dear Maintainer,

Currently this package FTBFS when compiled in new architectures (as ppc64el)
that is not supported on the outdated package autotools files, mainly because
it fails to understand that the new architectures has support for shared
libraries, as shown below: 

	make[1]: Leaving directory `/«PKGBUILDDIR»'
	   dh_install -O--parallel
	dh_install: libdc1394-22-dev missing files (usr/lib/*/lib*.so), aborting
	make: *** [binary] Error 255
	dpkg-buildpackage: error: fakeroot debian/rules binary gave error exit status 2

The full log could be found at

I created this patch that call autoreconf to updates the autotool files during
the build, as suggest by the following wiki:

Bug#755800: bogus urgency field from security-tracker

package: security-tracker.debian.org
severity: wishlist


looking at https://security-
tracker.debian.org/tracker/status/release/oldstable (unstable too) it seems to 
me the urgency field is rather unused, for oldstable all entries are either 
low or "not yet assigned" (unstable has one high urgency entry, while way more 
in reality), so I'd like to propose to remove this field completly as it's 
confusing and irrelevant.

Bug#755799: gnome-music incorrectly lists some songs with a zero duration

Package: gnome-music
Severity: normal

Some of the songs displayed in my gnome-music library are shown with a 
0:00 duration. Although these can be played, it annoyingly prevents the 
user from fast forwarding the playback. All songs are however correctly 
listed and tagged in Rhythmbox, which suggests this bug is related to 
gnome-music or a dependency (tracker ?).

I am using an up-to-date Debian sid distribution on a Dell laptop.

Version: 2.02.95-8
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

the man page of clvm states:

		Enable debug logging. Value can be 0, 1 or 2.
		0 disables debug logging

however there is a bug in the initialization code, that will enable syslog
debuging when passing -d0.

The bug is fixed upstream in

Bug#735501: new version released

Hi, 1.5.1 is already released. 
But maybe it is better to package 1.6.0, and leave out 1.5.x.
