Package: gettext
Version: 0.19.8.1-9

There is a new 0.20 version available, it would be nice to get it
uploaded to Debian
https://savannah.gnu.org/forum/forum.php?forum_id=9430

(in fact a .1 on https://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/gettext/gettext-0.20.1.tar.xz)

Thanks,

Control: affect -1 + gnulib
X-Debbugs-CC: ***@debian.org

Dear gettext maintainer,

The new snapshot of gnulib (https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/gnulib ) includes
some modules that need gettext 0.20+ to work properly. Please do consider
packaging the new version. It would be very useful even if the new version is
only pushed onto Experimental for now.

Thanks,
Boyuan Yang

Hi Santiago,

Is there any progress on packaging v0.20.1 for gettext? It would really be
great if we could have it in Debian sooner. Please let me know if there's any
blockers and I would be glad to help.

Sorry for the late reply. Working on this now. I have a preliminary
package almost ready and I'm now working on the more "bureaucratic"
issues, like ensuring that upstream signing keys are not expired and
stuff like that (I'm postponing any packaging changes for now).

If you are willing to help, I'd like to have a list of open bugs
reported to Debian which are fixed by this release. Other than this
one, I think there is really none, because almost every time I
cherry-picked from upstream git and closed the bug.

Thanks.

Hi.

I've just uploaded gettext 0.20.1-1 for unstable. It may take manual
processing frpm ftpmasters because there are two new binary packages.

Thanks.

I saw that gettext 0.20.1 disappeared from the NEW queue (
https://ftp-master.debian.org/new.html) and that it did not appear in Sid. Is
there any issue raised by the FTP Master for rejection? What can be done to
fix that issue?

Thanks,

It's been another 4 months and seems and seems that the package still saw no
activity. Is there anything I could do to help with the packaging for new
version?

Sorry for the late reply. I was asked to write a more detailed
copyright notice because the current one is considered not to be
"good enough" by one of the FTP masters.

I could try to switch to DEP5-style copyright file, but that would be a
huge waste of time in my opinion. So for now, it would help if
somebody could do a copyright and license review that could help to
improve the current copyright file, but without going full DEP-5.

Thanks.

Hello,

is there a timeline when the new version will available?

The next release of GnuCash should be at the end of this month.

Kind regards
