 * Integrate changes from Ubuntu.

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


  • 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). 1.4.1 uploaded!

  • Fix bugs in the BTS


  • Rework the post* scripts to be only called when really necessary
  • remove the commented out lines from rules


  • 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

  • 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...
    • The version number must be lower than 1.4.2-1. Use dpkg --compare-versions to check.
  • Should we recommend rcs and dvipost or depend on them?
  • Make it binNMU-safe.
  • 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

  • Send patches upstream.
  • Integrate changes from Ubuntu.
