I've just found a few minutes to take a look at all those emails tagged
unread in my mailbox about bacula. It appears to me that, beyond a few
new bugs, nothing much really happened. I recall having asked for some
review of what I did a few months back. That either got lost or no-one
The current state of bacula in Debian is bad. The build system is broken
imho (which is why I actually started working on it), so much that I
wouldn't trust it. And I don't see anyone actually doing anything. Given
this situation, I don't think bacula is fit for a stable release.
Unfortunately, I have lost my biggest use case for bacula. I also
currently don't have a working testing environment. That is party why I
didn't reply to anything recently. I'm not sure about my future
participation in packaging bacula.
So, who is still there and how is this going to improve?
