Hi,

bug #436681 is already marked as closed, so you can't fix it

If you need a another bug you can work on which will propbaly not be
fixed soon by anybody else I would be very happy if you choose #277994
(http://bugs.debian.org/277944).

The package is hnb, which was developed without variable length
character encoding in mind. To fix this bug you need to gain some
skills in C, ncurses, read a bit about Unicode and write a patch for hnb
to be able to display UTF-8. Fixing this is not that easy but it should
be doable for an avarage skilled computer science student.

Reproducing this bug is easy:
1) apt-get install hnb
2) start a terminal
3) start hnb in this terminal
4) type a UTF-8 character and see what happens

hnb needs a simple patch to display a cursor, which will be included in
hnb soon. Drop me a mail if you need that patch.


Thanks,
Carsten

Sorry, http://bugs.debian.org/277994 is the correct URL.

Note there's a typo in Carsten's mail.

The link is incorrect (#277944 instead of #277994)
=> http://bugs.debian.org/277994

It is difficult to read your email when your email user agent is not
configured to use line lengths of about 72 characters per line.

This bug has already been solved:



Message #27 received at 436681-close@bugs.debian.org (full text, mbox):
=============================
From: Ludovic Drolez <ldrolez@debian.org>
To: 436681-close@bugs.debian.org
Subject: Bug#436681: fixed in backuppc 3.0.0-4
Date: Mon, 27 Aug 2007 21:47:17 +0000

Source: backuppc
Source-Version: 3.0.0-4

We believe that the bug you reported is fixed in the latest version of
backuppc, which is due to be installed in the Debian FTP archive:

backuppc_3.0.0-4.diff.gz
to pool/main/b/backuppc/backuppc_3.0.0-4.diff.gz
backuppc_3.0.0-4.dsc
to pool/main/b/backuppc/backuppc_3.0.0-4.dsc
backuppc_3.0.0-4_all.deb
to pool/main/b/backuppc/backuppc_3.0.0-4_all.deb
============================

I suggest you get one that is still open, install the source code of
that package on your computer and solve it.

Regards
Johann

hi,

If you give the page a close look you can see, that the bug was closed
last year, so you should probably choose another bug to fix.

To fix a current bug, you should install Debian testing (called Lenny,
as it is the upcoming Dbeian release) instead of the stable version
(Etch). Then the best (for Debian) would be if you have a look at the
release critical bugs, and bugs which are marked as a release goal, as
they're most important to be fixed.

So have a look at
http://bts.turmzimmer.net/details.php?bydist=any&sortby=packages&ignhinted=o n&ignclaimed=on&ignpending=on&ignpatch=on&ignmerge d=on&igncontrib=on&ignnonfree=on&ignbritney=on&ign otherfixed=on&ipv6=on&new=7&refresh=1800
which should give you a nice list of bugs to work on.

Interesting to read for you is probably
http://www.debian.org/doc/maint-guide/ which gives a nice overview about
the packaging and files in the debian directory. Chances are good that
you'll have to work on them.

If you've prepared a patch/fix for a bug, just let me know and I'll
review and upload it.


Best regards,

Bernd
