Bug#988308: unblock: mir/1.8.0+dfsg1-18
(too old to reply)

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: ***@packages.debian.org
Usertags: unblock

Please unblock package mir

(Please provide enough (but not too much) information to help
the release team to judge the request efficiently. E.g. by
filling in the sections below.)

[ Reason ]
Mir is a relatively new package in Debian and unit tests behave flaky on
not-so-standard CPU architectures. The new version fixes RC bug #987909.

Furthermore, the d/watch file has been updated because Github changed
some URL scheme for upstream tarball retrieval.

[ Impact ]
No real impact, except possibly for developers who want to try out the
Mir Display Server.

[ Tests ]
Unit tests run at build time, but they are sometimes flaky.

[ Risks ]
No known risks.

[ Checklist ]
[x] all changes are documented in the d/changelog
[x] I reviewed all changes and I approve them
[x] attach debdiff against the package in testing

[ Other info ]

Hi again,

[ Impact ]
No real impact, except possibly for developers who want to try out the
Mir Display Server.
I just realized (i.e. I forgot to mention), that several Ayatana
System Indicators would be affected by a removal from the Mir Display
Server from Debian 11 (due to their entanglement with Mir via

So, keeping Mir in Debian 11 is essential for keeping Ayatana System
Indicators in Debian 11. Thanks.

Btw: I sent this unblock request before the mir package actually
landed. It will arrive soon.
