Links to SRU bugs: (my first SRU :) )

Ok, for the second question, the following is a pending SRU bug
The following are the (general) steps that I should do as motu-sru member:
The first question that needs a reply is "is this bug a SRU or not?"
In the example, the program doesn't start so it is a SRU as it cannot
be used by users. I try to reproduce the bug or to check users
confirmations. I test if the debdiff works and if it introduces new
regressions or not. If all is ok I give motu-sru ACK to the debdiff so
it can be uploaded.
If there is not a test case etc... I ask for it so people can test the package.
If a new upstream version fixes the bug, in most cases the package is
not updated but only the upstream fix is needed as a new upstream
version will probability introduces new bugs.
I hope all this is enough.
