Ubuntu Backports Weekly News, Issue #5
01/21/2005

Project Description:
The Ubuntu Backports project's goal is to provide a stable AND up-to-date Ubuntu Linux system by backporting desktop applications from Ubuntu's Development branches and Debian Sid to the latest stable release.

This week's recap:
I announced that the Warty backports branch is closed [1] to new additions, to make way for a new Hoary backports infrastructure. That's 269 backported packages for Warty! Thanks to all testers and supporters -- I couldn't have done it without you.

Stable Branch Promotions:
The packages listed here have been introduced in the warty-backports-staging testing area for at least the past week. They've been tested by me to work, plus they have no outstanding bugs against them. Therefore, they've been promoted to the stable tree.

Into the future:

Still nothing from Sourceforge. I'm assuming I'll have to deal with Project Web Services indefinitely. Doesn't matter, as I'm moving off.

Lots of Hoary Backports chit-chat is currently in progress at the forums.
