LyX is collaboratively maintained in the pkg-lyx Alioth project. lyx and dvipost are up for adoption, see #634757 (lyx) and #634759 (dvipost)


  • Remove ttf-lyx transitional package. Requires bug filling, by now not really feasible before the jessie release.
  • Lintian warning: http://lintian.debian.org/tags/font-package-not-multi-arch-foreign.html

  • Send patches upstream. We should aim at having a minimal packaging, as much as possible should be sent upstream. Only Debian-specific and "packaging-specific" stuff should be kept.
    • prefer-xdg-open - Will be Debian specific until all other issue with xdg-open are solved. Discussion on lyx-devel. sensible-editor has problems too, see #7448.
