TODO

  • Urgent: Get a new upstream version uploaded which builds with gcc-4.1 so that the transition can be completed. I'm aiming for 1.4.1 currently (pelle)

  • [done] Additional package dvipost
  • Frontends: qt and xforms
  • [done] Get a Subversion repository at Alioth.
  • Fix bugs

dvipost

lyx

  • look which changes to the packaging are required - Diff between 1.3.6 packaging and Georgs unoffical package is here: ftp://hxt.homelinux.org/debstuff/136-vs-142georg.diff

  • sort out the bugreports -> ask for feedback for all others

  • put the debian dir in subversion and find out how svn-buildpackage works
  • Which version is the right one unless 1.4.2 is released - 1.3.6+1.4.2svn2006..., 1.4.1+1.4.2svn2006..., 1.4.2svn2006...
  • Should we recommend rcs and dvipost or depend on them?
  • Make it binNMU-safe.
  • Break dependency loop?
  • lyx-qt and lyx-xforms should only depend directly on the libraries they really use. See http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2005/11/msg00016.html
