unicode or binary contents.

Both of these are implemented as quilt patches against upstream,
visible at:

Bug#771148: (pre-upload) unblock: pypy/2.4.0+dfsg-2

Severity: normal
User: <at>
Usertags: unblock

Please consider unblocking the follow upload for package pypy:

There is an FTBFS (#771137) with the current gcc in sid (that I only
noticed when preparing this request), so we should definitely do an
upload, fixing that.

There have been a few issues reported in PyPy 2.4, fixed post-release,
that are probably worth cherry-picking into jessie. They haven't been
reported in Debian's BTS, but even subtle interpreter bugs tend to be

The one that caught my attention was a segfault, if one runs the hy test
suite. See

These also appear interesting:
* (one of the two test-cases
  has been fixed)
* (although we don't provide
  have a packaged numpypy in Debian, yet)

I am proposing the following:

Please unblock package phonon

Hi! I'm requesting a pre approval for fixing #771138, severity important.

We have been contacted today by one of the upstreams of Phonon making us
note a patch that avoids a crash when no backend is in use.

The patch is just two lines. I'm attaching the debdiff.

The only entry in the changelog is:

* Add do_not_assume_existing_backend.patch to solve a crash when running
    without a backend (Closes: #771138).

Thanks in advance, Lisandro.

Bug#771127: What shall we do for the sphinxcontrib diag stuff?

Severity: normal

Dear release team,

There's a number of sphinxcontrib package which have RC bugs in Jessie,
because of missing build-depends. Namely:

- #768707 [S|+P|  ] [src:sphinxcontrib-blockdiag]
- #768708 [S|+P|  ] [src:sphinxcontrib-nwdiag]
- #768739 [S|+P|  ] [src:sphinxcontrib-actdiag]
- #768765 [S|+P|  ] [src:sphinxcontrib-seqdiag]

On all of the 4 cases, the issue is that python-sphinx-testing, and
python3-sphinx-testing didn't make it on time for the release.

So we have 2 ways to fix the issue:
- 1/ Allow python-sphinx-testing to get in Jessie
- 2/ Remove all sphinx-testing tests and build-depends from the above
4 packages, and unblock them from Sid so that they migrate to Jessie.

It is my understanding that the goal of the distribution freeze is to
improve Q/A. sphinx-testing is just there for Q/A, so makes a lot of
sense to allow it to get in Jessie. It doesn't serve any other purpose
but providing Q/A for the above 4 packages. Not allowing it to get in,
and choosing option 2 wouldn't help improving quality, quite the
opposite. The only reason why you would refuse to get sphinx-testing in,
would be because you just want to respect establish rules and not make
exception (which I would understand, but not support).

Bug#771107: unblock: fai/4.3.1

Severity: normal
User: <at>
Usertags: unblock

Please unblock package fai 4.3.1. Debdiff included.

It fixes three important bugs:
#769097 fai-quickstart: unowned files after purge (policy 6.8, 10.8): /var/lib/nfs/{.[ex]tab., export-}lock
#769683 fai-server: fai-cd fails if /usr/bin/strings (pkg binutils) is not installed
#769923 fai-setup-storage: flag_initial is not respected any more

Here's the annotated diff of the new FAI version:
I used this command to produce the diffs: 

   debdiff fai_4.3.dsc fai_4.3.1.dsc | filterdiff -x '*/man/*' -x '*/doc/*' -x '*/examples/simple/*'

I've excluded the man pages, the documentation and the subdirectory
examples/simple, because everything in this subdir will got into the
package fai-doc.

For each file I've added some NOTE: lines in front of the diff.

NOTE: This diff fixes part of #769683, this bug is important

Bug#771106: unblock: krb5/1.12.1+dfsg-15

Severity: normal
User: <at>
Usertags: unblock

Please unblock package krb5

systemd does not respect inserv overrides (see #759001) and does
not plan to do so, since they appear to be used by only two packages
in the archive, one of which is debian-edu-config.

The ordering override is needed for krb5-kdc-ldap because in that
configuration, LDAP is needed for the operation of the KDC, whereas
otherwise LDAP would tend to full under the heading of a "normal service"
(which might use krb5 for authentication), which would come after
the KDC startup.

The ordering issue was fixed by providing systemd unit files and
an ordering snippet in krb5-kdc-ldap for the krb5-kdc.service
(#758992) in krb5 1.12.1+dfsg-11, but that fix was incomplete,
since it did not force the same ordering for krb5-admin-server,
which has the same LDAP dependency.

The krb5 1.12.1+dfsg-15 package adds the same ordering snippet
to the krb5-admin-server unit, closing #769710.

The attached debdiff is the unfiltered output of
debdiff ../krb5_1.12.1+dfsg-14.dsc ../krb5_1.12.1+dfsg-15.dsc

Not sure to upload a fix for libsdl2 . Please advise


The bug 770670 [1] reports that compilation of a software including libsdl2 is 
not possible on ppc64el when g++ is used with option "-std=c++0x".

This bug was flagged "serious" by Bastian (cc'ed).

On one hand the fix is easy: It's just a matter of disabling a compilation 
option (configure --disable-altivec) when compiling on ppc64el, just like when 
compiling on powerpc. (see diff below). Only ppc64el version of the package 
will actually be different.

On the other hand, this issue occurs when using an special option of g++, so 
the bug may be considered as more normal than serious. (Frankly, I don't know)

What do you advise ?

[ ] Should I upload the fixed package to unstable and file an unblock bug ?

[ ] Or just upload a fixed package to experimental ?

All the best

PS: Bastian, thanks for the detailed analysis
