binaries

todo

  • Incorporate and acknowledge the changes from the non maintainer upload.
  • Lintian reports 2 errors and 7 warnings about this package. You should make the package lintian clean getting rid of them.
  • Build log checks report 1 warning about this package.
  • The package should be updated to follow the last version of Debian Policy (Standards-Version 4.6.1 instead of 4.6.0).
  • A new upstream version is available: 5.1.8, you should consider packaging it.
  • The BTS contains patches fixing 23 bugs (24 if counting merged bugs), consider including or untagging them.
  • Some strings of this package need translation. You should check the l10n status report for more information.
  • This package has "Build-Depends: texi2html" while texi2html needs a new maintainer, see O #698081.

problems

  • The package has a debian/watch file, but the last attempt to use it for checking for newer upstream versions failed with an error:
    debian/watch is an obsolete version 2 watch file;    please upgrade to a higher version    (see uscan(1) for details).

testing migration

excuses:
  • Migration status for bash (5.1-5 to 5.1-6): Waiting for test results or another package, or too young (no action required now - check later)
  • Issues preventing migration:
  • Too young, only 0 of 5 days old
