Bug#395535: version 1:4.3p2-5.1 works for me

I just checked this using version 1:4.3p2-5.1 from sid, and it appears 
to be working as expected.

   adric <at> yggdrasil[~]$ tail -2 /etc/hosts.deny 
   ALL EXCEPT sshd: PARANOID
   sshd: 127.0.0.1

   adric <at> yggdrasil[~]$ ssh localhost
   ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

After removing the bottom line from /etc/hosts.deny, I'm able to logon 
normally.

Bug#394684: libgphoto-2: privilege problem with PTP mode camera

Hi

Sorry for the delayed answer.

> Could you try 2.2.1-7; Fuji F30 was added in this version.

Yes with this version it works.

But it seems that the hotplug rules of libgphoto2 are better than the 
udev rules, because sarge can handle this camera. So any PTP camera 
released after etch will not work with etch but with sarge?

To my understanding the rule 

SYSFS{bInterfaceClass}=="06", SYSFS{bInterfaceSubClass}=="01",\ 
SYSFS{bInterfaceProtocol}=="01", MODE="0660", GROUP="camera"

should match. When I connect the camera

/sys/bus/usb/devices/1-8/1-8:1.0

contains bInterfaceClass, bInterfaceSubClass, bInterfaceProtocol with 
the correct entries.

So maybe this is an udev bug?

I experimented a bit and at least the rule

SYSFS{product}=="USB PTP Camera", MODE="0660", GROUP="camera"

Which doesn't sound like a blocker to me, FWIW.  Also, what about just
providing the "amd64" flavor for i386 without the xen/vserver flavors?  In
particular, I don't see any need for the xen flavor, wouldn't xen work just
fine with amd64 as the dom0 install and i386 in domX without any kernel
images installed in the domX?

As noted, it's not cross-building, this is treated as a native 64-bit build
by the compiler and the code path has been well-exercised by other packages.

A copyright holder cannot violate the license he/she releases his/her
work under: he/she needs *no* copyright license to deal with his/her own
work in any manner.
The only license violation that could possibly happen is on works
someone else holds copyright on.

Hence, nVidia could be in violation, *if* and *as long as* their work is
based on someone else's GPL'ed work.  I don't know if this is the case
here...

Bug#396481: nautilus-cd-burner's context menu does not include a "Blank Disc" selection

Package: nautilus-cd-burner
Version: 2.14.3-2
Severity: wishlist

nautilus-cd-burner is so excellently integrated into the nautilus
desktop that I barely need any other application for CD/DVD burning.
When blank disks are inserted it recognizes this and shows a dialog that
allows for creation of new Data/Audio CD's and Data/Audio DVD's.

The really nice thing about nautilus-cd-burner is that it shows a nice
icon on the desktop depicting the type of media that the disc in the
drive is.

The context menu includes a "Copy Disc" selection, but, though
nautilus-cd-burner is already sensitive to RW media, it'd be nice to
include a "Blank Disc" selection in the context menu for a quick
blanking of discs that are blanked to be used on other computers.  

Just a nice little add-on (wish) that would make this application even
better; wont make a difference if it's not achieved.

Yes. It can. I use it exactly this way here.
