1 Like
  • Fixed the C++ symbols file for poppler 24.06 and uploaded it to Ubuntu 24.10
  • Started working through the poppler reverse dependency build failures
  • Cherrypicked fixes for astroidmail to work with webkitgtk 4.1 and libsoup3 to reintroduce the package to Ubuntu 24.10
  • Filed bugs against all the remaining Debian packages that use libsoup2.4 and the Unity components that use libsoup-gnome 2.4
  • Removed glom, an old but unmaintained database app, because it was out of date on Debian and one of its dependencies used libsoup2.4. glom was originally an Ubuntu-specific package but I packaged it for Ubuntu years ago. I also removed some libraries that were only used by glom.
  • Updated the libdisplay-info packaging to run select upstream tests at build time and as autopkgtests in preparation for filing a MIR for it since it is a new dependency for mutter
  • Miscellaneous other uploads
