Dear Debian PhotoTools Maintainers,
This is a courtesy message about your package(s) which is/are
stuck in sid, and will not migrate to testing, in case you
are unaware; they are listed below.
The release managers announced on 7th July 2019 in their email
to debian-devel-announce and debian-release
(Message-ID: <20190707014700.GF15255 at powdarrmonkey.net>)
that only source-only uploads would transition to testing.
Here is the relevant part of what they wrote:
No binary maintainer uploads for bullseye
The release of buster also means the bullseye release cycle is about to begin.
>From now on, we will no longer allow binaries uploaded by maintainers to
migrate to testing. This means that you will need to do source-only uploads if
you want them to reach bullseye.
Q: I already did a binary upload, do I need to do a new (source-only) upload?
A: Yes (preferably with other changes, not just a version bump).
Q: I needed to do a binary upload because my upload went to the NEW queue,
do I need to do a new (source-only) upload for it to reach bullseye?
A: Yes. We also suggest going through NEW in experimental instead of unstable
where possible, to avoid disruption in unstable.
Q: Does this also apply to contrib and non-free?
A: No. Not all packages in contrib and non-free can be built on the buildds,
so maintainer uploads will still be allowed to migrate for packages
To perform a source-only build and upload, run dpkg-buildpackage -S
and then upload the relevant files in the normal way (for example,
using dupload or dput).
Your package(s) involved is/are as follows:
Source package: libgphoto2
One relevant line of the excuse file (including the uploader):
Not built on buildd: arch amd64 binaries uploaded by hpfn
Transition verdict: REJECTED_PERMANENTLY
I hope this is of help to you!
