News from gdebi

with 4 comments

After reading Zack’s post, I decided to help Gustavo and Michael maintaining gdebi in Debian, trying to get it in sync with upstream and fixing some bugs. Result was 0.5.9debian1 upload, which fixed 14 bugs (including annoying #493352, which I also plan to fix in Lenny).

That wasn’t enough, I also needed a vte fix to get rid of an ugly bug which prevented gdebi-gtk from installing anything, soon in your favourite mirror😉

If you have some free slots, there are some easy bugs you can work on, help is always welcome😉

  1. Hi Luca, thanks a lot for your work! I actually had already noticed that and updated my blog post with a bottom-line update🙂 I’m very happy to see that fixed.

    PS if you don’t mind please refer to me as “Zack”, nobody in Debian would probably associate “Stefano” to me😉
