uboot-mkimage hasn't been uploaded since before lenny, and Clint says we
should get rid of it, so I'll get it out of squeeze.  Please reassign
602778 and file a bug against ftp.debian.org for its removal from
unstable.

Thanks,

It looks like debian-installer build-depends on uboot-mkimage.  Is
switching to u-boot an option?  If not, I guess the removal will have to
be deferred.

tbm says this is post squeeze, so I'll ignore this for now.

13:11 < tbm> jcristau: sounsd like uboot-mkimage should become a dummy package
             depending on u-boot
13:16 < jcristau> tbm: we can't just change the build-dep and remove
                  uboot-mkimage?
13:20 < tbm> jcristau: for d-i, sure.  but there are other things that use
             uboot-mkimage
13:20 < jcristau> there's no other reverse dep
13:20 < tbm> jcristau: but imho this is post-squeeze
13:20 < jcristau> ok
13:21 < tbm> flash-kernel uses uboot-mkimage, but it's not Depends

Cheers,
Julien

        Hi

 I'm closing this bug as uboot-mkimage is now a dummy transitional
 package in sid, built from the u-boot source and which should pull the
 u-boot-tools package on upgrades from uboot-mkimage.

   Thanks,
