Julian Gilbey ogłosił, że wersja Debian Policy, która została ustalona po bardzo długiej dyskusji, znalazła się już dystrybucji Unstable. Jest to ostatnia szansa na wprowadzenie do niej ważnych poprawek — Julian zapowiada, że żadne zmiany poza bugfixami nie będą już akceptowane. Oznacza to, że developerzy Debiana mogą już zacząć się stosować do zaleceń w niej zawartych, chociać nie jest to jeszcze dokument w pełni oficjalny.

  From J.D.Gilbey@qmw.ac.uk Wed Jun  6 17:38:47 2001  Date: Tue, 5 Jun 2001 20:24:41 +0100  From: Julian Gilbey   To: debian-devel-announce@lists.debian.org  Cc: debian-policy@lists.debian.org  Subject: The state of policy    Dear all,    Version of policy has just been installed into unstable,  closing a significant number of bugs [0].    I do not intend uploading another new version before policy goes into  freeze, unless there are important changes or bugfixes necessary  before that time. [1]    I therefore recommend that maintainers should check the new version of  policy and endeavour to make their packages compliant if they are not  already.    My plans for policy are:    (1) Check through the existing bug reports against policy, closing      very old ones, marking old stalled ones REJECTED and so on.  Any      help with this would be much appreciated.        I would consider making a semi-regular posting of "what's going on      in policy" to devel-announce, if there's any interest in my doing      this, or at the very least, sending the new section of the      upgrading-checklist when there's a new policy version released.    (2) Rewrite it.  It's currently rather a mess, and a rewrite is really      needed in order that it should be easier to read and to find      things.        As the packaging manual has now been merged into policy, I would      see Policy Mark II as covering both the scope of current policy      and of the packaging manual, thus saving maintainers from having      to look in two places for packaging information and the problems      of version skew.  Of course, we will have to find a clear way of      distinguishing policy from guidelines and best practice, but that      should not prove to be too hard.    Any comments on the above, please follow up to  debian-policy@lists.debian.org.       Julian    [0] At least, they have been set to severity "fixed" and will be      closed when master is alive again.    [1] Policy should have frozen by now, but as Anthony recently      announced, this has not yet happened.    --   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-             Julian Gilbey, Dept of Maths, Queen Mary, Univ. of London         Debian GNU/Linux Developer,  see http://people.debian.org/~jdg    Donate free food to the world's hungry: see http://www.thehungersite.com/
