RC bugs 2012/16
this week I've started to look at the (not yet release critical) gcc 4.7 bugs. luckily there are still enough patches for them in the BTS but at the time of writing, at least 138 are not fixed & don't have a patch yet. so still some work ahead. & for those who prefer to fix debian/rules files, lucas' last archive rebuild (where build-arch was used) still leaves enough work, & many bugs are not difficult to fix with a basic understanding of makefiles & debian build sytems.

cme fix dpkg-copyright
a short note to all fans of Copyright-Format 1.0: if you have debian/copyright files formatted according to one of the myriads of revisions of DEP5 & want to convert them to the released format, just run
cme fix dpkg-copyright
& be done with it. cme is in the libconfig-model-perl package, & you should try to use the version from unstable, since Dominique constantly improves it (& he's also always open to proposals & nit-pickings from me – merci beaucoup !). More info about Config::Model on its homepage.
