Hi again,

Just an off-topic comment here, since we are already syncing things from
Debian: there are two nasty segfaults that I fixed and which are already
in upstream repositories.

One of those is in fontforge (with a newer release already in the new
version on Debian) which has already migrated to testing.


Another one is an extremely important bugfix to libspectre. The bug
makes evince and the nautilus thumbnailer (among others) unuseable in
big-endian platforms. The fix is already commited in libspectre's
upstream repository (and the patch is already here in launchpad).


Sync youtube-dl 2010.03.13-1 (universe) from Debian testing (main)

Status in “youtube-dl” package in Ubuntu: Confirmed

Bug description:
Please sync youtube-dl 2010.03.13-1 (universe) from Debian testing (main)

The youtube-dl currently shipping in Ubuntu can't handle a recent YouTube
redesign, and is so essentially useless. Without this sync, there's no point
shipping the package at all.
The sync will fix LP: #485442, #555002

Upstream doesn't ship a changelog.
