Re: libreoffice

Mmh. Something is wrong, this list doesn't make any sense to me:

Why should 'git' or 'curl' depend on 'libreoffice-still'? Those are lowlevel tools or libraries
which cannot depend on an office suite. :-)

Re: libreoffice

I start to go through the list and test some of the packages and then mark them as tested..

Re: libreoffice

The problem is, that dependencies are not only considered in one direction. So if libreoffice depends on curl, the block will also work. Even worse, think of:
libreoffice -> x; y -> x; y -> curl -- with x,y also in testing (but maybe even tested).
Then curl may still block libreoffice.
That's precisely, what I meant in my comment on irc.

Re: libreoffice

Ah. Now I understand. :-)
So for now our only hope is to test as fast as possible..

Re: libreoffice

right, something like that.
So far, once in a while I just decided "1k packages in testing is too much, I'll just move them all".

Re: libreoffice

I start to think that testing core and extra is enough, community is anyway things for the ... well community.
The packages there have dubious quality IMHO. And a community package should not block anybody from
work.
