Worked on repackaging python-gnome for the new Python package in Debian. Problem is that I want to build for both python1.5 and python2.1. dh_movefiles does not like to move from different install trees so it seems I have to craft something by hand. Deferred for now. Building works so far but the result needs to get installed into the packages trees.

Had a look at my bug reports:

  • 115308: Looks like I built a new python-gnome against libgal11 but never uploaded it. Silly me!
  • 108039: Found out that the installed shared libraries are only needed for special SWIG wrappers with runtime type information. I am going to split those libraries out. Not sure what to do about versioning though.
  • 112011: Seems like gsfonts in testing is too new for the gs available in the same distribution. I guess we can only wait until the current gs gets into testing.

Checked update_excuses for why gs is not current in testing. Seems like the autobuild failed due to libgimpprint-dev being unavailable on mipsel :-(( Wrote an email to debian-{devel,mips} explaining the situation.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
