Bug#677582: gcc-4.4-base: NMU gcc-4.4 4.4.7-2.1 prepared to fix upgrade paths
Followup-For: Bug #677582
I've just prepared a NMU for gcc-4.4 that fixes this issue (i.e. the
broken upgrade paths where apt prefers to keep (not upgrade)
gcc-4.4-base instead of removing the obsolete gcj-4.4-base).
Holger has agreed to sponsor this NMU and upload it to a DELAYED queue.
But of course the maintainers are welcome to fix this themselves.
Once the fixed package has entered sid and has shown to fix all these
upgrade paths in piuparts (about 60 the last time I checked), I'll take
care of filing an unblock request.
The nmudiff is attached, the source package can be found on mentors:
