I'm fine with almost any date till then :)

Juste a quick note on REVU for more efficient reviews:

As most of you know (well I've advertised quite a bit), I have
improved revu-build into a set of tools called REVU-Tools. They can be
called by REVU admins on tiber, from within the directory containing
the package files (dsc, orig.tar.gz, diff.gz), by simply running

When there is a debian/watch file in the package, revu-report will try
and get the upstream tarball automagically. However, when this is not
the case, you can specify it as the first argument given to
revu-report, after having downloaded the upstream tarball manually.

The tool generates reports in the current directory, including a full
report called REVU_report. All can be viewed from the REVU web

So if you want this report to review a package, you need to provide a
REVU admin with :
* the name of the package you wish to get a report on
* the url to the upstream tarball, unless there's a working
debian/watch in the package

For more infos, see .
