debdelta :- the case of missing deltas and errors
Hi all,
First of all I'm happy to note that the debdelta repository/service
has been up most of the time. While that is good but for sometime now
I have seen that sometimes while doing a debdelta upgrade its unable
to find some deltas. Why is that ?

For e.g.

$ sudo debdelta-upgrade acpid binutils binutils-dev
gnome-disk-utility grub-common grub-pc grub-pc-bin grub2-common
jigdo-file libdc1394-22 libfluidsynth1 libgdu-gtk0 libgdu0
libgudev-1.0-0 libperl5.12 librdf0 libudev0 libuniconf4.6
libwvstreams4.6-base libwvstreams4.6-extras libxml-parser-perl
luatex min12xxw perl perl-base perl-modules sqlitebrowser
sun-java6-bin sun-java6-jre udev

Now there are two things that I want to bring to notice here. For e.g.

a. Delta is not present: gnome-disk-utility_2.30.1-2_2.32.0-1_amd64.debdelta

As can be seen quite a few debdeltas are not present, cannot understand why ?

apt-show-versions shows it is from the debian repository :-

$ apt-show-versions -a gnome-disk-utility
gnome-disk-utility 2.30.1-2 install ok installed
gnome-disk-utility 2.30.1-2 stable
gnome-disk-utility 2.30.1-2 testing
gnome-disk-utility 2.32.0-1 sid
gnome-disk-utility 3.0.0-2 experimental
gnome-disk-utility/sid upgradeable from 2.30.1-2 to 2.32.0-1

b. Error: applying of delta for jigdo-file failed: : localepurge
removed 1 files. (non retriable)

I *see* that somehow localepurge and debdeltas do not seem to play
together nicely. Any comments on that ?

Lastly I'm on debdelta 0.41

$ apt-show-versions -a debdelta
debdelta 0.41 install ok installed
debdelta 0.39trl stable
debdelta 0.41 testing
debdelta 0.41 sid
debdelta 0.42exp experimental
debdelta/testing uptodate 0.41

Looking forward for comments and information on the same.
