problems

  • The package has not yet entered testing even though the 5-day delay is over. Check why.
  • The package is severely out of date with respect to the Debian Policy. Latest version is 4.1.4 and your package only follows 3.9.6...
  • There were override disparities found in suite unstable:
    • swfdec-gnome: Override says oldlibs - optional, .deb says oldlibs - extra
    • mozilla-plugin-gnash: Override says oldlibs - optional, .deb says oldlibs - extra
    • gnash-common-opengl: Override says oldlibs - optional, .deb says oldlibs - extra
    • gnash-dbg: Override says debug - optional, .deb says debug - extra
    • klash-opengl: Override says oldlibs - optional, .deb says oldlibs - extra
    • swfdec-mozilla: Override says oldlibs - optional, .deb says oldlibs - extra
    • gnash-opengl: Override says oldlibs - optional, .deb says oldlibs - extra

testing migration

excuses:
  • Migration status: BLOCKED: Maybe temporary, maybe blocked but Britney is missing information (check below or the buildds)
  • 25 days old (needed 5 days)
  • missing build on armel: browser-plugin-gnash, gnash, gnash-common, gnash-cygnal, gnash-dbg, gnash-dev, gnash-ext-fileio, gnash-ext-lirc, gnash-ext-mysql, gnash-tools, klash, konqueror-plugin-gnash, python-gtk-gnash (from 0.8.11~git20160608-1.3)
  • old binaries left on all: gnash-common-opengl, gnash-doc, gnash-opengl, klash-opengl, mozilla-plugin-gnash, swfdec-gnome, swfdec-mozilla (from 0.8.11~git20160608-1.3) (but ignoring cruft, so nevermind)
  • Updating gnash fixes old bugs: #853424
  • Piuparts tested OK - https://piuparts.debian.org/sid/source/g/gnash.html
  • Not considered
