Hi Stanislav,

Thanks for reporting this, but I fail to see how this is a RC bug, or
even a bug at all :o)

All packages are made to propagate to Stable. Maintainers are not going
to re-upload a version of their package just before the release to
change all configuration files that needs changing. 

The ideal would be to have additional dynamic parameters like :
${distro_id} or ${distro_codename} to be able to have a generic
configuration file that works with all version stable/testing and
unstable.

On your side this is just a simple configuration file change from stable
to testing that is needed. 

I don't know if the maintainer have a simple workaround/solution for
this.

This is RC squashing season so I am just trying to help :o) Closing it
or even just lowering the priority seems reasonable to me.

What do you think Stanislav ? 
Let me know

Cheers !
LeTic

Anthony, note that nnnn@bugs.debian.org doesn't reach the bug submitter,
you need to also send your messages to nnnn-submitter@ if you want the
submitter to see them.

Hi,

I assumed this was by design.  The default configuration in 
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades is as follows:

> Unattended-Upgrade::Allowed-Origins {
>         "${distro_id} stable";
>         "${distro_id} ${distro_codename}-security";
> //      "${distro_id} ${distro_codename}-updates";
> //      "${distro_id} ${distro_codename}-proposed-updates";
> };

I see no mention of 'squeeze', but the default configuration appears to 
only apply upgrades to stable, or apply security upgrades for the 
currently installed release.  If you run testing and want to 
automatically keep that upgraded, you would have to additionally add an 
entry for 'testing'.

If there is a desire to change that default behaviour, I think it need 
only be a 'wishlist' bug;  maybe there was a good reason for not doing 
it anyway.  I don't think this can be 'grave' or release-critical 
because, once squeeze is released, the default configuration *will* 
automatically keep that (stable) distribution up-to-date.

Regards,

Agreed; this 'bug' is a local configuration issue and not a bug in the
package.
