Azarman in fact this is how the general view of Debian is seen online by some
muhoopeterS: there is a small likelihood that foojack will not work with 0.104.0. again it depends on if it makes use of API's that aren't yet frozen
Azarcourtesy of SJV
thingfishAzar: yeah - mainly by other linux people. The windows people don't know who we are.
peterSmuhoo: yeah but you can't know that before 0.104 is released. you can't know whether it will be binary-compatible with 0.103. so you can't know what Depends line to suggest for foojack (via your shlibs file) until after the fact
muhoopeterS: in that case, if the developer or packager of foojack smells trouble (i.e. that foojack uses experimental features, such as jack_midi, that haven't frozen yet), it can specify Depends: linjack0 = 0.103.0, can't it?
in other words: tightly coupled to that release, expecting that the next one will break. but that's pretty rare, IIRC
peterSmuhoo: right, until you decide to fix a minor Debian-specific bug in libjack, before 0.104 is released.
Azarthingfish: what are all true americans running? :)
peterSmuhoo: forcing all jack apps to be rebuilt every time you do that is ... suboptimal
thingfishhehe
muhoopeterS: hmm. ok. well i think i've getting the hang of this. gotta run off now, but i'll be back at this tomorow.
peterSmuhoo: it's fine for jackd to have that sort of Depends relationship, because jackd is in the same source package so it will always be recompiled at the same time libjack is.
muhoopeterS: again, many MANY thanks for all your help
peterSmuhoo: no problem, I hope you get it all sorted out sooner or later

streunerAzar: some people believed serveral hundred years ago earth wasn't a planet... ;-)

streuners/planet/ball/
jetscreameryes i remember you arguing that the world was flat when chris sailed off, peterS
stonedwait what
jetscreameryou said those 4 ships would sink
DewiI believed several hundred years ago that paying debian developers was a bad thing unless it was me getting paid.
stonedummm
peterSjetscreamer: I did not. I argued that the world was 25000 miles around and he's run out of food and water long before he reached China
and he only had 3 ships
actionDewi laughs.
Dewilaughs.
jetscreamer4 iirc
Azarhi mister streuner :)
stonedif your got all DD's laid.. I mean paid... it would be nicer
jetscreamerone turned back
stonedAzar: my homie dude man bro whats up
streunerAzar: hello
Azarmister stoned! reading the interview with the new DPL
peterSjetscreamer: if it weren't for a land mass somewhat less than halfway between europe and china, he would've been screwed
Dewistoned: how else are you going to get debian developers laid, other than by paying for it?
stoned1000 DDs. Each gets 1$ a day donation
thats like 30$/month just for workin on debian
