Thanks, I'm familiar with the Debian effort and agree this change is a
good thing. My question is more on the Ubuntu side: there are ~400
packages (or more) that would require diffs from Debian to fix since
Debian is frozen. A few of the fixes might make it to unstable (or
experimental), but overall that's a big chunk that will be in Ubuntu
this release and not in Debian. Ubuntu will need a decent push to get
all those packages fixed up in time for the next release or the
release would have lots of FTBFS in the archive (even though the
packages that have already been compiled are still usable.) Is than an
Ubuntu effort to address all those packages, or is it a low priority
since nothing is "broken" from an end user point of view?
