RC bugs 2014/45-46

I was not much at home during the last two weeks, so not much to report about RC bug activities. – some general observations:

  1. the RC bug count is still relatively low, even after lucas' archive rebuild.
  2. the release team is extremely fast in handling unblock request - kudos! – pro tip: file them quickly after uploading, or some{thing,one} else might be faster :)

my small contributions:

  • #765327 – libnet-dns-perl: "lintian fails if the machine has a link-local IPv6 nameserver configured"
    discuss possible fix with upstream (pkg-perl)
  • #768683 – src:libmoosex-storage-perl: "libmoosex-storage-perl: missing runtime dependencies cause (build) failures in other packages"
    move packages from Recommends to Depends (pkg-perl)
  • #768692 – src:libaudio-mpd-perl: "libaudio-mpd-perl: FTBFS in jessie: Failed test '10 seconds worth of music in the db': got: '9'"
    add patch from Simon McVittie (pkg-perl)
  • #768712 – src:libpoe-component-client-mpd-perl: "libpoe-component-client-mpd-perl: FTBFS in jessie: Failed test '10 seconds worth of music in the db': got: '9'"
    add patch from Simon McVittie (pkg-perl)
  • #769003 – libgluegen2-build-java: "libjogl2-java: FTBFS on arm64, ppc64el, s390x"
