kubuntu images falling behind in package versions on daily builds?

The live filesystem build often fails during the development cycle due
to uninstallable packages. For instance, if you look on the page for
the Kubuntu 20090310 daily-live CD [1], you'll see that the manifest
file is several days older than the CDs themselves. If you look at
the live filesystem build log [2], you'll see this is due to a bug in
the packagekit package. Digging through the jaunty-changes archive,
you'll find that Steve has since fixed this [3]:

packagekit (0.3.14-0ubuntu4) jaunty; urgency=low

* debian/packagekit.postinst: ignore errors from dbus-send, there's no
requirement that dbus is even running at install time.

Sure enough, the Kubuntu 20080311 daily-live CD has an updated live filesystem.

Hope that helps,
