Bug#766431: Dialog frontend warnings when in fact no question is going to be asked

Package: debconf
Version: 1.5.53
Severity: wishlist

When running in an emacs shell buffer, if no packages are really going
to ask a question, the warning below should be printed only once, if
indeed at all.

Wouldn't it be better to print the below warning only upon something
intending to actually interact with the user?

Else if no questions are going to be asked by debconf, the warning is
irrelevant.

Bug#766429: sysstat service will not start on machines with systemd

Package: sysstat
Version: 11.0.1-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

It is currently not possible to start sysstat on a systemd enabled
system:

  # service sysstat start
  Failed to start sysstat.service: Unit sysstat.service failed to load:
  No such file or directory.
  # /etc/init.d/sysstat start
  [....] Starting sysstat (via systemctl): sysstat.serviceFailed to
  start sysstat.service: Unit sysstat.service failed to load: No such file
  or directory.
  failed!

It does not look like the package currently provides any of the
necessary systemd files, and attempting to utilize the default one
suggested upstream does not work.

Cheers,
Preston Maness

Bug#758234: it's actively harmful

I'd say this policy is not only not bringing anything good, but is
actively harmful.  It does cause a data loss: neither we nor the tools know
what a package's real priority should be as it's overwritten by the max
priority of its dependencies.

Problem 1: non-default user wishes
debootstrap --exclude systemd will still install all of systemd's
dependencies.

Problem 2: obsolete packages
libdb5.1, libboost-iostreams1.54.0, etc get installed as part of important.

Problem 3: clouded analysis
when pondering reducing standard (a recent debian-devel thread), a package
cannot be analyzed based on its merits alone if it's a dependency.

Thus, I propose not merely removing this policy requirement, but also
replacing it with the opposite:
# A package should not (must not?) elevate its priority just because it's
# depended on unless it has extra functionality that itself warrants a given
# priority.

An example:
* udev is depended on by P:important packages, yet creation of /dev/ nodes
  is something that by itself matches the definition of P:important[1]

* libudev1 does nothing but serve packages that depend on in

Thus, udev should have a high priority, libudev1 should not.  The moment
nothing depends on the latter (like due to a soname bump) it should lose its

Bug#766428: marco: "Sticky" windows return to original desktop on Alt-Tab

Package: marco
Version: 1.8.2+dfsg1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When selecting "Always on Visible Workspace" from the Window Menu, macro
correctly places the window on all workspace. However, when focusing an
unfocused window with this option enabled via Alt-Tab, the window will
be raised on its original workspace.

An upstream bug report exists for this issue:
https://github.com/mate-desktop/marco/issues/18. A fix has also been
provided: https://github.com/mate-desktop/marco/pull/121. However, the
fix has not been merged.

Bug#758231: this is actively harmful

This policy requirement is only historic.  It made sense when the tools
couldn't cope with this situation, which was the case more than a decade
ago.  These days, it is actively harmful: it makes debootstrap install junk
if I exclude systemd (as its dependencies have an elevated priority),
greatly increases the work when trying to reduce the size of standard (as in
a recent thread on debian-devel), etc.

Thus, I say that it needs to be revisited once people are not busy with the
freeze.  I'll raise this issue with the policy team, suggesting changing the
"must" requirement all the way to "must not": a package must not elevate its
priority just because it's depended on unless it has extra functionality
that itself warrants a given priority.

For now, let's not change packages back and forth.  Let's close this
non-issue in rsyslog, it's a problem with the policy.

Bug#766426: Dolphin search displays "Invalid protocol" error.

Package: dolphin
Version: 4.14.2-1

I am using Debian unstable (sid), kernel 3.14.15-2 (2014-08-09) x86_64. 

I reported this bug upstream ( https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=339866 ) but was told to report downstream instead as KDE maintainers considered it a packaging problem. As an aside, I wonder why dolphin has to depend on baloo now in Debian. 

The original bug report is as follows. 

======================================

When I try searching in Dolphin, it always displays a red warning bar showing "Invalid protocol" , and no search is ever performed. 

Console output: 
dolphin(7601): couldn't create slave: "Unable to create io-slave:
klauncher said: Unknown protocol 'baloosearch'.

After I installed "ballo", "baloo4" and "baloo-utils", the red warning bar (as well as the console output above) was gone but Dophin still couldn't find anything (status bar showing "0 Folders, 0 Files"), no matter what I input as search keyword. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Dolphin 
2. Press CTRL+F
3. Input some characters as search keyword

Actual Results:  
A red warning bar showing "Invalid protocol" pops up below the search bar. 

Expected Results:  
Dolphin finds folders/files whose names contain the search keyword
