From the sysadmin point of view, software are referenced, automatically tracked for (security) updates, and verified using a packaging system and a common set of packages, in our case, Debian Lenny.

"What if you need a newer version of a package?"
In this case the way to go is to add another set of packages where somebody is supposed to track security and issues; preferably a widespread, common repository so that sysadmins get the same issues (and work on the same fixes). In our case, there's backports.org:

Debian backports itself prepares more recent packages for the latest stable Debian release, dealing with dependencies issues and the like. It also follows Debian testing which (as the name implies) has some testing done and a 10 days delay before validating new packages.

In our case, the latest package is bzr 1.13.1:
- I just upgraded.

So the best way to keep everybody happy is to make sure somebody takes care of updating the backports.org bzr packages :)
Currently this looks fine, backports.org's founder Norbert took care of the latest update:

(This is related to sr #106612.)

Now that Bazaar 1.14 is released, could we upgrade bzr.sv to it?

Reason for the request: we'd like to import the Emacs sources and start playing around, to discover any process bugs before we do the actual switchover.  Bzr 1.14 is the first release with the level of repository format that Emacs more-or-less requires.

The thread about this starts here -- you don't really need to read it, this is just for reference:


Thank you,
