Please unblock package ardour

Hi!

We have noticed that the version of ardour currently in testing doesn't
support GUIs of LV2 plugins. This is bug #684610.

Apparently, packaging an intermediate svn revision in
ardour/1:2.8.12+svn12923-1 has introduced this problem.

LV2 plugins are the work horses of digital audio workstations (DAW).
While the DAW only records and arranges audio snippets, the plugins
change the frequency spectrum, dynamics and so on. Ardour without
plugins is as useful as a compiler that cannot generate code.

Though the version currently in testing allows to load LV2 plugins, the
user has no meaningful way to change their runtime parameters, thus
rendering them almost useless.

The version in unstable is not affected. Despite the massive (12MB)
debdiff, I thought I'd better ask for an unblock instead of shipping a
broken package in wheezy, especially since ardour is the flagship of
audio production on Linux.

The real diff between the two versions isn't actually that big. As
you'll notice, the intermediate svn version contained embedded copies of
multiple libraries and additional code that was never shipped in any
release, hence most of the debdiff simply removes this additional code
again.

The 2.8.14 release also integrates patches from Debian, thus explaining
some more deletions in the debdiff.

Since upstream is very reliable and I've runtime-tested the release, I
feel confident to have this package in wheezy. Since LV2 GUIs used to
work in squeeze, losing this functionality in wheezy would be serious
regression.


TIA

For the avoidance of confusion for those of us following via the list,
this never reached debian-release, probably due to the size of the
attachment.

Would it be possible to have a filtered diff that skips the embedded /
unused code removal?

Yep, it's attached. If you skip the noise in debian/patches, too, it
boils down to a few spelling fixes, a new template (the large XML chunk
at the end of the diff, can't break anything) and very few real code
changes.
