Bug#478839: gnome-menus: Games menus needs submenus

Package: gnome-menus
Version: 2.16.1-3
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

With a large number of games the Games menu becomes unweildy.  Thus a 
submenu system is need.  I have included a gnome-applications.menu patch 
that adds them, but what is really needed is a way for the submenus to 
only be used if there are more than three entries (the gnome guidelines 
suggest at least three items should be in a submenu, and that submenus 
shouldn't be too deep; my submenus add exactly one more layer than is 
already there).

Bug#478887: libcm-dev: Should build-dep on libgl-dev not xlibmesa-gl-dev

Package: libcm-dev
Version: 0.1.1-3
Severity: normal

A number of packages provide opengl header files, not just MESA, so the
correct target to depend on is libgl-dev not xlibmesa-gl-dev.  By
depending on xlibmesa-gl-dev any user with the nvidia-glx package
installed is unable to use libcm-dev since the nvidia-glx-dev package is
required when nvidia-glx is installed to compile opengl, while
xlibmesa-gl-dev doesn't work while nvidia-glx is installed (since it has
to divert the mesa libraries of the same name).

Both nvidia-glx-dev and xlibmesa-gl-dev provide libgl-dev and the
majority of applications that use opengl already build-dep on libgl-dev.

Well, this took me a while longer than I thought.  Here's a patch.

The debian/debhelper.mk hack is meant to be temporary, of course.  I filed
a bug on cdbs requesting addition of dh_movefiles call already.

Bug#464698: merge glunarclock into gnome-panel?

Hi Sven,

Sven Arvidsson schrieb:
> It looks like there is ongoing work to add this functionality to

it seems the upstream discussion is stangant for about one year now. 
Judging from what the last poster writes, the code is allready there 
but the artwork is still missing.

Well, for glunarclock two sets of moon artwork allready exist: One is 
a set of 56 realistic illustrations of the moon and the other one is a 
set of 12 cartoon moon pictures originally created by Andreas Nilsson 
<http://ramnet.se/~nisse/>. I believe he is the right one to contact 
regarding the artwork. License should not be a problem, since his work 
has allready been distributed as part of a GPLed software, i.e. 
glunarclock.

Cheers,
Fabian

Bug#479012: gnome-panel: please choose another separator than '/' between wind direction and velocity (use a comma instead)

Package: gnome-panel
Version: 2.22.1.3-2
Severity: wishlist

Hi,

in the mouse-over area of the weather-applet both wind direction and 
velocity are shown. Both values are separated by a slash '/', which 
looks ugly, because there is allready a slash in the velocity unit 
'm/s'. This results in something like "Süd bis Südwest /3,6 m/s" (in 
German).

For the sake of consistency, please change the slash into a comma as 
is used to separate the real temperature from the windchill factor. 
The separator between sunrise and sunset should be changed to be a 
comma as well.

Of course this is about personal affection, but I believe a slash in a 
user-interface is half-assed practice.

Cheers,
Fabian

Status update for xulrunner 1.9 - maintainers, we need you

Hi everyone[1],

Here is a status update for xulrunner 1.9, and what remains to be done
to be ready for what we would like to be in Lenny.

In the past few weeks, I've uploaded several beta releases of xulrunner
to experimental, with the latest one, 1.9~b5-4 (in NEW) being more-or-less
in its final shape (shape being different than codebase).

I also have a working package for iceweasel built on top of xulrunner,
which is waiting for xulrunner 1.9~b5-4 to come out of NEW to be
uploaded (it requires changes to the xulrunner-stub that were done in
this release).

I already went through most libmozjs-dev build-depending packages[2] and
sent messages to their maintainers to test packages available on my
people.d.o space [3]. These packages are current unstable versions
rebuilt against experimental libmozjs-dev, except for libjavascript-perl
where some changes were required[4]. gxine remains to be done, and
should hopefully only require changes in an .m4 file, and will be
handled as libjavascript-perl.

This means unstable version of all these packages should be simply
binNMUable when it comes for xulrunner 1.9 to go into unstable.

That was for the easy part.

Now for the painful part. I'm sorry this comes quite late but time
constraints on my part, xulrunner packaging stabilization requirements,
and iceape required changes were such that this mail couldn't happen
