Several package relationship fields in the DEB packages provided look like this:
Spot the two(!) errors with that.
Neither uppercase letters nor underscores are allowed.
$(tr A-Z_ a-z-)
And that with all such fields (Package, Depends, Provides, etc).
Debian Policy §5.6.1 (4)
Add to blocking list for 3.6 because installing the currently-shipped broken packages makes other Debian software complain about the invalid state of the package database.
The bug is RECONFIRMED for libreoffice3.6-en-gb=126.96.36.199-2 (for example).
Currently we use 'epm' to package the packages; it'd be great to have a patch to EPM to correct that, or better still to correct the name of the package in the heavy-lifting that produces that. I believe that is located in:
patches much appreciated.
Rene, I wonder if this causes grief for you from time to time :-) it's a 3.6 MAB apparently.
as we don't use the broken .debs coming out of the build systen - no :)
(and I have http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-openoffice/libreoffice.git;a=blob;f=rules;h=4f9d98804beddb2ae5e79fe07dcd1d02d88191e6;hb=HEAD#l1702)
The link suggests:
1702 # fixup case (-l10n-pt-BR -> l10n-pt-br etc.)
1703 for iso in $(ISOS); do \
1704 pkgiso=`echo $$iso | tr A-Z a-z`; \
1705 if [ "$$iso" != "$$pkgiso" ]; then \
1706 if [ "$$iso" != "en-US" -a \
Bjoern - random packaging bug hurting Ubuntu / Debian package users. Any chance you could take a look ? [ it's a MAB seemingly ].
This should be fixed on master - but it can't be back-ported to 3.6.
Testing of a recent build there is much appreciated - I don't have apt installed on my system.
Sure, if you point out the build, I can’t seem to find nightly builds of i386 debs other than old ones for 3.5 and 3.6…
