 * Lintian warning: "I: lyx: spelling-error-in-binary usr/bin/lyx collapsable collapsible" - got forwarded by SvenHoexter some time ago to upstream, but was declined by a general disagreement about the correct spelling depending on country you're in.

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.
  • Get rid of dvipost, package should be droped from Debian altogether.
  • 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.

    • add-desktop-keywords - to be forwarded
