Below is what I worked on during my patch pilot time today.
General theme is that I'm either unsure how to or unable to get some of
these off of the sponsorship queue.
At very least, lp:~bones/ubuntu/natty/radiotray/fix-for-722886 should be
dropped, but read below for others.
Checked in on this, Pali's initial patch at to upstream plymouth
mailing list at  did not get a response, he pinged again, and
got a "will look at it soon" response at .
Also, sent a personal message saying "thank you" for his effort
and explained that Ubuntu is interested in his contributions, but
a number of factors make this a more difficult change to pull.
pinged stgraber, asked for quick review. He will look at this on his
patch pilot on wednesday.
This has been uploaded, and is in natty-proposed. The relevant
bug (http://pad.lv/675108) is in the right state, looks like this
should fall off soon.
I do not have access (nor did mdeslaur to mark it merged), so
I could not get it off of the queue. Per SpamapS this will go
next time updates are processed.
This branch is in "needs fixing" per mvo, as a request was made to the
author to open a bug and propose it for natty. That request has not
Similar to above, I do not think this branch should be in the queue, but
do not seem to have access to change the 'Status'
This should be moved out of queue until submitter makes changes
requested. How should that be done?
added a review, asked for some changes, this should be moved out of
queue until submitter makes changes.
This merge proposal is against an old branch of php5 due to failed
I suggested to the user to get source with 'apt-get source' and attach
a debdiff to the bug. It would seem that merge proposal won't work for
verified the merge fixes the problem, asked user to submit to debian.
The fix disables failure based on deprecation, and I asked if it might
be possible to fix the deprecated warnings rather than disabling checks.
verified the problem, and tested that the merge proposal fixes it for me
when running oneiric Unity. I'm not really knowledgeable enough
to comment on the correctness of the patch with regard to its behavior
in X in general.
got lynxman to move to the packaging branch rather than ubuntu branch
pingged dannf in irc and suggested change to the version number.
Other than that, it looks good to me. It is a cherry picked commit
This is an easy cherry pick for someone with upload perms.
Note, that http://pad.lv/641151 is also being worked, but I'd guess
we should not stop pulling 829061 based on it.
As Seb128 pointed out, we dont' want to carry a delta on this package
just for this. He requested the user open a debian bug. Unless someone
feels differently, I would think that this should be moved out of the
queue, and the merge proposal NAK'd.
This should be moved out of the queue. micahg disapproved of the SRU
to natty for this spelling fix. Oneiric has this fix.
Someone able to remove this merge proposal?
