 * Handle the remaining 8 bugs in the BTS  * Handle the remaining 6 bugs in the BTS

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


  • Handle the remaining 6 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?
    • 05.configure.py_prog_prefer - not sure if upstream will accept this patch

    Brought both up on the [http://marc.info/?l=lyx-devel&m=119558615822037&w=2 lyx-devel list]. --SvenHoexter

  • Solve the rpath problem on amd64.
    • I wonder if this bug still exists. Needs to be tested. --PerOlofsson

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

  • Make sure that we comply with the new policy and bump the policy version no. for lyx and dvipost.
  • With 1.5.3 we should try to list and close all resolved-upstream bugs in the changelog.

Bugreports without further feedback

[http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=440307 #440307 Difficult to select text and change figure text settings] Tagged unreproduceable and no further feedback from Gudjon. Feels a bit strange because he has been active and the report is a recent one. --SvenHoexter Note: According to Per there has been some private discussion but the bug only appeared on amd64 kernels.
