Handling GCC-related orphan bugs
 
Hello

I noticed that there are these orphan bugs (no maintainer set, the
package that they are filed against is not present in Debian anymore).
Perhaps there are some false positives or missing ones.

They were gathered from [1], and the ones related to GCC are filteerd
and pasted in the attached file (the list "flattened" to single lines
in a text file, easy to parse e.g. to extract bug numbers and reassign
in bulk).

[1] http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?maint=
^- (yes, with empy "maint" parameter)

What should be done with them, reassign? To which package, then?


Cheers.


PS: Not subscribed to the list.

I think any reassigments would be wrong. It needs somebody to go through the
list of bugs to see if these are fixed. if yes, close them, if not, then
reassign them to the package they can be reproduced with. Do you volunteer to
do this?


Thanks, Matthias

I can try. But I'm leaving tomorrow for a few days of holidays... so
if somebody beats me to it, I won't complain ;-)

(emacs folks happen to have 400+ orphaned packages and kernel folks
more than a hundred, I cannot cope with all of them besides the one
that I myself have ;) ).

Cheers.
