  1. This upload fixes the bindnow warning.  x11-utils needs some work - more than lintian reports (I'm willing to do that after resolving the luit issues).
    Ready Thomas Dickey at Jan. 7, 2022, 12:18 p.m.
  2. You are not a member of the Debian X Strike Force, so please make this a Non-maintainer upload. The version has to be 7.7+5+nmu1 and you have to have "* Non-maintainer upload" as first line in the changelog entry.
    Needs work Bastian Germann at Jan. 7, 2022, 8:40 p.m.
  3. done - can we delete this upload and comment on the current one, or would you prefer keeping all of the commented-uploads?

  1. Is this a team upload? If so, please mark it as such in d/changelog. Else, please explain how you are authorized to make a regular upload to the package.
    Needs work Bastian Germann at Jan. 6, 2022, 11:39 p.m.
  2. I asked for a sponsor before beginning work on this set of uploads without getting any response.
    
    Since the wiki seems to begin with this step (and supposing that the absence of response was due to omitting this step), I put this together to provide a way to do a pull-request.
    
    As in the byacc (and luit) uploads, I've addressed the bindnow issue in this upload.  x11-utils needs more work, but I intended keeping my proposed change to  it very small to ease the task of reviewing the change.
    
    (Advice on how to improve the process would be helpful).
    
    See bugs #1003130 and #1003021.

  3. Regarding authorized - I'm not entirely clear on the namespaces, because the repositories in salsa appear to be separate, while in mentors they appear to be merged.
