I intend to *lovingly* NMU codespeak-lib, as part of my effort to 
accomplish the following Release Goal for Lenny:

  # No unmet recommends relations inside main
  Advocate: Luk Claes
  Description: Packages in main should be able to satisfy all recommend
               relations in main.
  Bug-Tag: goal-recommends

Even though 0-day NMUs are allowed, I will wait for two weeks for your answer
to this, and then upload upload to DELAYED/7 in order to give you plenty of
time for reaction.

You will find that my changes are minimal and address only this issue, unless
other release goal can be dealt with in the same upload.

Attached is the diff for my codespeak-lib 0.9.0-4.1 NMU.

Thanks for your contribution to debian, and... Happy hacking!

Hey Mark!

First of all, thanks for your fast upload. You too, Mr Marillat!

Yes you are very right. I will change my wording.

That is work in progress. I am working on a wiki page, it will be ready
tomorrow. So far, I can only point you to: (and

The wiki page will group all this already available information so that
this is easier to track for everyone.

This is not an NMU campaign. I will definitely change the wording.
My original intention was to submit bug+patch, as agreed with Luk:
    <luk> amaya:
    (the ones in unstable) and
    (the ones in testing)
    <amaya> luk: so what to do about these? should I file bugs?
    <luk> yes, file with the appropriate version if not already
    reported at least for the sid ones, identifying the lenny ones that
    are fixed in sid for extra bonus points :-)
    <amaya> luk: i see a lot of those will be fixed when my nmus leave
    the delayed queue
    <luk> great
    <amaya> luk: I will take a look and file appropriate bugs with
    patches, and nmu threats ;)
    <luk> even better!

I think we were both joking about nmus there. Sorry about the tone of my
bug report. I am Cc:ing the rest of maintainers that got this tasteless
report, so that they also forgive me.

Well, no. I clearly said I would wait for two weeks for your response.
And *then* 7 more days in DELAYED. Mainly because some recommends have
become obsolete and I am not sure about the right replacements. I am
seeking actual advice, input, wisdom, from maintainers here :)

But you are right. I am sorry it came accross this way.

Thanks for your help!
