This page coordinates the efforts to transition to the new freetype ABI and API introduced in 2.1.10-1.

The following is a list of packages which depend on libfreetype6, but do not build-depend on it. This should be avoided, see ?SteveLangasek's [http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2005/11/msg00016.html email] on the matter for more background, and information on how to help fix the issues. (The same issues arise with dependencies on other libraries, such as libaudio2; please try to remove as many bogus library dependencies as you can at once.)

If you are working on a package, please claim it adding your name at the end of the line, in parenthesis. When a fix is ACCEPTed in the archive, remove it from the list!

There may be other packages which have acquired this problem since 2005/11 (particularly new packages); please add them to the list if you spot one.

If you can help analyse what needs to be done for each package, please add a note next to the package name with indications so others know what to do more easily.

Bugs filed for this transition should be [http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2005/09/msg00002.html usertagged]. Tag: extradeps-libfreetype6, user: debian-release@lists.debian.org. The list of such bugs can be accessed via http://people.debian.org/~adeodato/release-usertag/extradeps-libfreetype6.
