Hi Alex,

As SBo doesn't support current this mailing list is not the right
place to discuss this stuff, I suggest you to report things to fix on
current on the dedicated LQ topic (please read carefully the first
post there before)


don't get me wrong, but as I explain there I'm not fixing in realtime
everything on SBo to run perfectly on current in this unofficial
repository, it's just a best-effort thing based mainly on reports by
the users: so, when something disruptive like the recent glib2 or
icu4c upgrades in current happen, many libraries/applications of which
I have no idea of are involved and remain broken until someone doesn't
report them (thanks a lot for this!).
