NTP bugs have been piling up. Time to do something about them.
Help would be appreciated.
Fortunately, my Real Work is (mostly) multitasking-compatible today.
Everybody repeat after me: "Shared libraries need versioning."
Then convert the shared libraries you're a maintainer for. Now. Please.
Basic support is quite painless; see #274375 for a sample patch (from gnutls).
As the number of packages which depend on old gnutls and/or gcrypt packages approaches zero, it now makes sense to NMU the rest.
Uploaded to delay-2. Interestingly, the stuff I uploaded to the delay queue last month ended up being ignored for no good reason, so I reuploaded these too.
Next on the TODO list: pruning the NTP bug list and doing something about strange bugs. Again. I kindof doubt the utility of co-maintaining a package if one person ends up doing all the work...
