[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: slocate
Version: 3.1-1.1
Severity: important
Tags: patch

following a brief discussion on debian-devel locate is going to be
split off from the findutils package.
<http://news.gmane.org/find-root.php?message_id=3D%3c20071110110222.GA14136%40chistera.yi.org%3e>
This has already happened in experimental and will soon be done in
sid, too. A fix to make dlocate work both with the current setup and a
separate locate package is attached.

The findutils package does not ship /usr/bin/locate et.al., therefore
slocate diversion handling in preinst fails since it relies on the
existence of /usr/bin/locate.$suffix.

Also the new locate package uses update-alternatives, requiring that
slocate uses u-a, too.

Attached is a patch that implements the necessary changes.

Also, findutils/locate no longer ship /etc/updatedb.conf, but some
scheme will have to be worked out between slocate and mlocate to handle
this file, which both want to provide.

Cheers,

Subject: slocate has been removed from Debian, closing #451792
Date: Tue, 27 Jan 2009 20:01:53 GMT
Version: 3.1-1.1+rm

The slocate package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/457565 . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.

Kind regards,
