+# <acronym title="Release Critical Bugs of the Week">RCBW</acronym> - #23
+
+Wacky week, last week.
+
+Not only I've (almost) completed my moving to the new house, but we have also
+had guests in the lab for some full-immersion-paper-writing. That had left very
+little time for RC squashing, but I've catched up a bit in the week-end.
+
+Without any further ado, here are this week's squashes:
+
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 516336]]</span> - haskell-utils -
+  requested removal (superseded by haskell-devscripts)
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 547278]]</span> - elvis - downgrade,
+  unwarranted RC severity
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 559833]]</span> - imagemagick - libltdl
+  CVE, investigated and closed as false positive
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 567706]]</span> - mailcrypt - drop support
+  for emacs flavours older than 23
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 547810]]</span> - ccsm - fix FTBFS with
+  python 2.6
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 571185]]</span> - padre - requested
+  removal from testing
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 561524]]</span> - pyjamas - fix FTBFS with
+  python 2.6 (Ubuntu patch by Fabrice Coutadeur)
+
+Random points:
+
+* call for help, **if you are a libtool guru** there is some work for you: bugs
+  like [[!debbug 559822]] need your help (very old code, using very old libltdl
+  stuff, need to be ported to recent, non-buggy libltdl code and to use the
+  system copy of the library ...).
+
+* my
+  [personal RC bug monitor](http://bts.turmzimmer.net/details.php?bydist=both&sortby=packages&ignhinted=on&ignpending=on&ignmerged=on&ignotherfixed=on&new=7&refresh=1800#libavg)
+  (hence very biased) currently reports 278 RC bugs. Also, I've the impression
+  that the ratios of new bugs coming in vs ancient ones getting fixed
+  equate. If that is true, it would be a pity not to freeze this month. <br />
+  ... what are you doing here? still reading this blog post? go squash a RC
+  bug!
+
+In totally unrelated news: I've **bought my ticket for
+[DebConf10](http://debconf10.debconf.org)** (YAY!), according to my usual
+debconf customs: 4 days of debcamp + all the conf. See you there (in a
+while). ... and congrats to Adnan for
+[the winning DebConf11 bid](http://foolcontrol.org/?p=866)!
