Ubuntu

lack of update

Asked by jaromil on 2012-06-16

Hi, I'm the upstream maintainer of Frei0r plugins, according to the interest of various people adopting them

We have done fairly well developing the plugins in the past year, fixed bugs that were also reported and documented here (thanks!) and added important features and stability fixes. Yet, there was never an update of the package and now not even in the new LTS.

I'm publishing frei0r packages on my ppa
https://launchpad.net/~jaromil/+archive/frei0r

Now I've asked this question many times, ended up subscribing to mailinglists like the MOTU etc. just to discover there is still no clear way to interact over this issue. The question is: what is the procedure to have the package updated in your distribution?

thanks for your patience
kind regards

Hi jaromil,
since your package is also present in Debian, I suggest you to open a bug report on the Debian bug tracker (see <http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting>), asking for the new "upstream version" to be included there. Ubuntu automatically synchronizes its package archives from Debian whenever a new version is made, so the updated packages should make their way there automatically if they are updated before July 5th. (After that date, they can still be updated until August 23rd, but only if an explicit request has been made).

Let me know if you have any doubts or further questions.

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask jaromil for more information if necessary.
