Subject: bug to keep sablotron from testing
Date: Wed, 04 Aug 2010 17:50:43 +0200
Package: sablotron
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Sablotron is dead upstream and probably has an unknown number of security bugs since nobody really uses it anymore.

This bug is just a place holder to keep sablotron from entering the testing.

It's technically a little late for that, given that the most recent upload
migrated to testing in February. ;-)

The package also has a reverse-dependency - arb - which is non-free and
not on the wanna-build whitelist (ignoring the fact that non-free building
is temporarily disabled anyway); I've CCed the maintainers to make them
aware, as removing sablotron from testing will also necessitate removing
arb.

Regards,

Adam

I have some mixed feelings about arb.  It causes trouble regarding
dependencies in several ways (needs motif, does not work with lesstif)
and other stuff I do not really like.  So if there are stron reasons
to kick sablotron this would probably a good reaosn to finally kick
arb as well.  However, is there any plugin replacement for sablotron
which I might recommend to upstream?

Kind regards

       Andreas.

Sorry I forgot the check the dependency only on libsablot0.

I think that xsltproc can be used to process XSLT files, but I doubt
it's drop-in replacement.

Sablotron was moved to sourceforge in February this year, but I would
recommend that we leave to die in peace.
