One question about boost1.38 + karmic:

I reported months ago two bugs against Debian's boost.138 package:

I even reported them earlier than karmic development start, expecting
that it would go into karmic naturally through the usual sync from

Unfortunately, that was not the case. There is not any status update
from Debian maintainers so far. How should I proceed so that those two
bugs (both with patch available) are fixed on Ubuntu?

#523344 is a patch backported from upstream trunk and according to one
of boost1.38 developers, it should have been in 1.38 release, but was
forgotten to be applied to the release branch.

#523343 is already in upstream's bug tracker for several months, and
even with some regular pings, there were no further comments on it
after a couple of review iterations, and the patch is not yet on
upstream's trunk.
