[http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=179996 #179996 Hungarian translation menu foo] I hesitate to waste time with this one. a) Because it's very, very old b) because the email address of the reporter doesn't look like you can expect any feedback from it. Someone against closing it or willing to handle it? --SvenHoexter

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

TODO

  • 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)]

[http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=439116 #439116 broken link in hebrew tutorial] - No further feedback from the reporter and upstream claims that it's fixed
