Hello,
I think that change is ok.

BTW exim4/use_split_config should be low, IMHO.

At first glance I'd guess we should not ask dc_hide_mailname for
satellite setups.

Since the debconf stuff is your area, can you please do that change?

Installed debconf version is broken. Aborting preconfigure.

I just did a dist-upgrade on Woody (using backports.org) and noticed
this:

   Installed debconf version is broken. Aborting preconfigure.

I did a google search on that string and found an unanswered post[1]
by me asking about that message.  (That seems to happen often to me.)

Is that related to the exim4 packages?  Or is that some other problem?
I have not noticed that when updating other woody machines running
the exim4 backports, but it could be easy to miss.

The exim4 packages use a feature of debconf that is broken in the
woody version. Hence, the packages detect if running on woody and
refrain from using that feature. The questions are then asked at a
later stage of setup.

It is an informational message only and no need to be alarmed.

Marc

The complete changelog message looks like this:
   * Exim4 triggers a bug in woody's debconf. - With dialog frontend, invoked   
     by dpkg-preconfigure you are stuck in a loop, always being asked the same  
     two questions (split config, and basic configtype) again and again until   
     you give up and choose split_config=yes although being discouraged from    
     doing so. I am working around this by making the config-script abort if    
     debconf is old and we are running in preconfigure mode. (Thanks to Dan     
     Weber, Adrian Bunk and whoever else wasted brainpower on this.)            
     (Closes: #246742) (am).

Small typo in changelog

Hi,

[I did reply to the PTS commit message a while ago to point this out, but
I'm not sure if zugschlus <at> costa.d.o actually goes anywhere that's read. :-)]

The commit in question was r1120, and contains a small typo, which afaics is
still present (as of r1136):

 * Translation updates:
    - cy (Welch) by Dafydd Harries. (mh) (Closes: #306349)

s/Welch/Welsh/

Cheers,

Adam

It was delivered locally on costa, which I didn't notice. There exists
a .forward now.
