We should be able to fix:
#219358 - dependency on python-abiword - I'll talk to the abiword people about this because I think the python-abiword functionality is in the abiword package now
#263173 - Browse fails on startup
#217708 - packaging request for Terminal
#210174 - new upstream version should fix this
#217693 - can remove this dependency
#246015 - new packaging would fix this
Sugar feature freeze exception
You received this bug notification because you are a member of Sugar
Team, which is subscribed to sugar in ubuntu.
Status in “sugar” source package in Ubuntu: New
Binary package hint: sugar
Sugar (http://sugarlabs.org/) is the UI from One Laptop Per Child that has spun off into an upstream project.
The intrepid packaging is very out of date since it hasn't been updated since hardy. Jani Monoses did that packaging but hasn't been able to work on this. We have formed a Sugar Team to work on packaging (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SugarTeam) but we are quite behind on this.
There has been a major release of Sugar recently, which we want to land in intrepid.
We want to sync Sugar's 0.82.x packages from debian, according to this list: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SugarTeam/Packages - there are a few minor packages which debian doesn't have, where we do have updated packaging in a PPA: https://launchpad.net/~chapter78/+archive
None of the packages we want to touch are dependencies of other things - this is a very self-contained project at this stage.
Please grant a Feature Freeze exception for Sugar so we can get this updated.
