Someone can delete packaging wronged link?

Asked by Daniele Napolitano on 2008-09-09

I've linked my project to a non-existent Ubuntu Hardy package by mistake. Only Ubuntu Intrepid package is valid.

Someone can do this DB patch?

Jeroen T. Vermeulen suggests this article as an answer to your question:
FAQ #72: “How do I delete a packaging link I created by mistake?”.

Ok, but the link created by mistake is about Hardy, not Intrepid. I like to remove only Hardy package link.

Thank you.

I don't see the Hardy link anymore. Does that mean that the problem is solved?

Daniele Napolitano (dnax88) said : #4

Look in the project page:

Section "Packages"

So not solved yet. Can you remove the entire link, then create a new one for just Intrepid? If linking to Ubuntu creates another link to Hardy as well, try the "link to other package" option. That lets you select the specific distribution version.

(If you want to experiment with this without causing any damage, use the same project on the staging server: — the data there gets reset daily to a fresh copy of the production server)

I can remove the Intrepid link, there is a button "Delete link", but for Hardy there is no one button or link to remove linking. I can't remove the entire link.

In the IRC channel #lauchpad, someone told me that this requires a patch from DB...

(I will wait Hardy backport package)

We removed that link from the database.

Thank you.

I have a similar problem with package links from my project Remuco to Ubuntu Hardy. I created those links accidently and cannot remove them now (I cannot see the mentioned "Delete" button/link to remove the package link)

In detail, I would like to remove these links:

Francis, as you did for ircp-tray, could you also remove these links manually?
