aide 0.10-9 in experimental

After taking over aide co-maintainership in January and successfully convincing Mike to put the project on alioth, I have done some work on aide and have uploaded 0.10-8 on September 18 and 0.10-9 on September 27 to experimental.

These two versions acknowledge the two NMUs we recently had and fix some issues that I thought would be worth fixing. Please test. I plan on uploading to unstable on a week, if no bad goofs surface during the experimental phase.

Unfortunately, aide's upstream is quite dead, so it is unlikely that any upstream bugs will get fixed without you submitting patches.

Next step will be convincing Mike to allow creation of a pkg-aide-maintainers mailing list for the Maintainer:-Field, so that messages sent to the maintainer field instead of can reach me as well.

For completeness sage, here is the change log:

I noticed this warning on stderr when running aide with --config: not updating aide configuration since manual config option was given

I wonder if that is the normal behaviour ? It didn't happen with aide 0.10-6.1.

Marc 'Zugschlus' Haber on :

This is part of the fix for #293073, #293456 and #299765. Most of our scripts now automatically invokes update-aide.conf if the user has not asked to use a special config file (which you did). In these cases, update-aide.conf does not make sense since the user has asked to use a different config anyway.

As the information message seems to be misleading, how should the wording be?

Francesc Guasch on :

I'm sorry I didn't read the bug reports. I recently subscribed to debian-devel. Now I see the purpose of update-aide.conf. Thinking about the way I use aide I think I don't need any message.

Maybe there are cases when this message is needed that I fail to see.
