LyX is collaboratively maintained in the pkg-lyx Alioth project. It is currently maintained by PerOlofsson and SvenHoexter.


  • Fix bugs in the BTS
  • 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.
    • lyxclient-man-nonascii-char - should this go upstream?
  • Solve the rpath problem on amd64.
  • Decide early if we would like to enable assertions with the next stable Debian release [http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=410175 #410175]

    • I say yes. It's better to catch bugs by having assertions enabled than risking data corruption or similar. --PerOlofsson

    • I see two arguments for no. a) Upstream default is no and b) it seems to annoy users. I'm unsure which POV should weight more and I don't know how high the risk to loose data really is. --SvenHoexter

  • Provide a backport of 1.5.2 for etch users? [http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/pkg-lyx-devel/2007-November/002165.html (discussion)]
