Hi Core Devs,
As you may or may not know, the iproute package included in Hardy
contains a fairly severe regression that causes several packages which
perform traffic control to fail. Among the affected are the popular
shorewall and wondershaper apps. This issue is tracked in bug
despite being reported back in March, and patched upstream by Debian,
the issue does not seem to be addressed yet in Hardy. I believe this
bug should qualify for the SRU process because:
- It affects Hardy, an LTS release.
- It is a fairly severe regression, preventing multiple popular
traffic control apps from functioning.
- There is a known, and presumably safe, fix already released upstream.
One other point of confusion: In the bug metadata, the maintainer
listed for the iproute package is "Maintainer: Debian iproute
maintainers". This doesn't seem congruent with the fact that Debian
Core Developers is actually given in the deb.
If there is anything I can personally do to help expedite a fix,
please let me know. Thanks for your time.
