Please merge debian-med and debian-med-packaging.

Asked by Charles Plessy on 2011-06-08


~debian-med was created recently by the Debian Med team in order to have a common PPA, and when I tried to use <email address hidden> as a contact address, I realised that it will not be possible because it is the address of the auto-generated ~debian-med-packaging team (from the Maintainer field of our packages, I suppose). Can you merge both Launchpad teams ? On the Debian side, it is only one.

Thanks a lot !

Hello. This is done.

Charles Plessy (plessy) said : #2

Thanks a lot. It looks that it has been automagically undone one hour later: according to :

  “Debian Med Packaging Team does not use Launchpad. This page was created 4 hours ago when the cufflinks_1.0.3-1ppa1~lucid1 package was uploaded to lucid/RELEASE.”

As a result, I could not set <email address hidden> as a contact address for the ~debian-med team (which is our primary motivation for this merge).

That's unfortunate. We apparently can't run the merge again until you claim the team. Could you do so?

Charles Plessy (plessy) said : #4

Done !

Since this is done I'm moving this to "solved" status.

Hi Benji,

there must be a misunderstanding: what I did is to claim ~debian-med-packaging. But it is still there, and therefore we can not use <email address hidden> as a contact address for ~debian-med.

I merged ~debian-med-packaging into ~debian-med (again)

Charles Plessy (plessy) said : #8

There seems to be an unfortunate race condition, as ~debian-med-packaging was created again three hour ago.

Can you use admin privileges to set the contact address of ~debian-med to <email address hidden> after the merge ? That would solve the problem in one way or the other, as using this address for ~debian-med is the main motivation for this merge.

Thanks for your patience !

Hi Charles,

Whilst a full Launchpad Administrator could do as you suggest, they tend to be madly busy. We can probably get this done sooner for you if you first claim the ~debian-med-packaging team (again), and then visit #launchpad on to ask for the merge to be redone at a time when you are able to immediately able to claim the address for ~debian-med. (The merge only requires the lesser privilege of Registry Administrator.)

Problem solved on IRC as suggested. Many thanks !
