Hurra for an efficient ftpmaster team!

Hi,

I have to share with you all how very positively surprised I am by the 
efficiency of the ftpmaster team processing the NEW queue.  I feared 
that we might experience extra slow processing this close to the freeze 
but my experience have been quite the contrary.

Hurra for the ftmaster team!

I know processing is not always simple and that I might just have been 
"lucky" lately (read: my recent uploads may simply be easy to handle). I 
sure hope that not too many are sitting out there with the outright 
opposite impression to mine, feeling abandoned by that moody and 
mysterious "NEW".

/me sends positive vibes towards ftpmasters and their machinery,

 - Jonas

Bug#766371: ITP: libtry-tiny-smartcatch-perl -- lightweight Perl module for powerful exceptions handling

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Jonas Smedegaard <dr <at> jones.dk>

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA512

* Package name    : libtry-tiny-smartcatch-perl
  Version         : 0.5
  Upstream Author : Marcin Sztolcman <marcin <at> urzenia.net>
* URL             : https://github.com/mysz/try-tiny-smartcatch
* License         : Expat
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : lightweight Perl module for powerful exceptions handling

 Try::Tiny::SmartCatch's goals are mostly the same as Try::Tiny module,
 but there are few changes to it's specification.  Main difference is
 possibility to catch just some kinds of exceptions in place of catching
 everything.  Another one is slightly changed syntax.
 .
 When raised exception is an object, Try::Tiny::SmartCatch will test for
 exception type (using UNIVERSAL::isa).  When raised exception is just a
 text message (like "die ('message')"), there can be specified part of
 message to test for.
 .
 There are also explicit sub blocks.  In opposite to Try::Tiny, every
 block in Try::Tiny::SmartCatch's "try", "catch_when", "catch_default",
 "then" and "finally" must have explicit subroutines specified.

Needed by upcoming ciderwebmail.

question about versioned dependencies in debian/control

Hi folks,

I am building local git packages for Wheezy derived from the
official source package. Problem with debian/control:

:
Package: git
Architecture: any
Multi-Arch: foreign
Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}, perl-modules, liberror-perl,
 git-man (>> ${source:Upstream-Version}), git-man (<< ${source:Upstream-Version}-.)
:

If the top changelog line says

	git (1:2.1.2-0~xgo70+1) unstable; urgency=low

then I get an unresolvable conflict for the git-man package.
Using

	git (1:2.1.2-1~xgo70+1) unstable; urgency=low
	            ^^^

there is no such problem.

How comes? Both git and git-man are built from the same
source package.

Every helpful comment is highly appreciated.
Harri

Automating snapshot.debian.org downloads

I'm reconstructing the history of a package in Debian (with the
eventual goal of putting it into a Git repository).

Are there any existing clients that help with automated downloads of
multiple .dsc/source package bundles from snapshot.debian.org? I don't
want to reinvent this particular wheel.

Adding and using repositories during package installation?

Hi,

I'm thinking about creating a metapackage to setup a software
development environment. It would not only have to depend on some
prerequisite packages, but also add repositories and install a package
from one of them. Is there an acceptable way to do that?

I guess I shouldn't use things like 'add-apt-repository' and ''apt-get
update' in maintainer scripts. I could probably add files to
/etc/apt/sources.list.d and /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d. But how could I
perform the update required to install a package from one of the new
repositories?

Thanks
Malte

  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : FASTA and FASTQ file manipulation tools
 All scripts automatically detect whether the input is a FASTA or FASTQ file.
 Input and output files can be gzipped.
 An input file is assumed to be gzipped if its name ends with .gz.
 To gzip an output file, just name it with .gz at the end.
 You can use a minus sign for a filename to use stdin or stdout, so scripts can be piped together.
 A developer API is also provided by this package.
 There are plenty of examples in tasks.py
