Yoshio <email@example.com> [...] This is the recent news [6/22/1999 - 6/28/1999] from Debian JP Project. * Bug stamp-out list plotter (debian-users) Ken Nakagaki posted a Perl script to visualize the critical buglist submitted by Wichert. It plots the below lists: * New BUG cumulative number * Modified BUG cumulative number * Not-modified and remain BUG number * The all release critical BUG number * All BUG cumulative number (The script) http://lists.debian.org/debian-users/199906/msg00584.html (The PS gzipped results) http://lists.debian.org/debian-users/199906/msg00696.html * merge xfree86-xtt (debian-devel) Mutsumi Ishikawa proposed the scheme for merging xtt to potato. http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/199906/msg00317.html * file-kanji and file2 (debian-devel) The discussion of the alignment between Debian JP packages and Debian packages. For example, Debian JP once had a package called file2, and when it was uploaded to Debian, its name was changed to file-kanji. So now we have the very same packages except their names. Can we write like the below? Conflicts: file2 Replaces: file2 Note file2 appears only in Debian JP, not in Debian. Can't we set the dependency on the packages which are not in Debian but in Debian JP? http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/199906/msg00342.html * Applying newer license to older vim (debian-devel) Taketoshi Sano confirmed the vim 3.0 license (jvim is based on vim 3.0 for present). Backward compatibility of the license is agreed with vim author and Sano-san will upload new license jvim to Debian. http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/199906/msg00348.html * Package description translation (debian-doc) Japanese translation of Package description is now ongoing. <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Debian developers Reference translation (debian-doc) Yoshizumi Endo expresses the will to translation. <199906211603.BAA02946@smtp5.dti.ne.jp> Thanks a lot for the below contribution from Debian JP project: Proofread: Atsuhito Kohda, Ryuichi Arafune, Masayuki Hatta Best Regards, K.S.Yoshio http://www2.osk.3web.ne.jp/~shishamo/ Key fingerprint = 3C 3C 1C E6 B1 65 53 58 A3 B3 6A ED BA E4 54 52
