Anyway, this will be resolved, too, private communications.

So I guess we have to wait for the next release of TeX Gyre and that
will be it. There is movement in this area.

;-) As Viennese, I am for fuzzyness (and as one working in many-valued

Re: 5-year-old-bug - proposed-updates for lenny

Lenny users might want to test

which contains the already uploaded plus the soon to be uploaded fixes
for the 5-year-old-bug.

Hi,

Looks like texinfo needs a giveback on powerpc, it has been in state
building for 20 days:

Contact the powerpc buildd maintainer (as I have just done) and if they
don't do anything then the wanna-build team can likely do something:

The build attempt was on praetorius, which is Philipp's responsibility.
I'm sure he'll look into it when he gets to his mail.

Botched mirror again.  We really need sbuild fixed.  And yes, please contact
$arch <at> buildd.d.o in this case.
