+# <acronym title="Release Critical Bugs of the Week">RCBW</acronym> - #24
+
+Some pause, and here we go with another [[RCBW|hacking/debian/rcbw]] issue.
+The pause has involved various Debian-related work, such as
+[[preparing OCaml batteries included|ocaml_batteries_included_1.1.0_is_in_debian_now]]
+for Squeeze and of course
+[preparing my DPL platform](http://lists.debian.org/debian-vote/2010/03/msg00001.html).
+
+Without any further ado, here are this week's squashes:
+
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 566568]]</span> - mysqmail - fix piuparts
+  install failure (sponsor upload for Thomas Goirand)
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 569455]]</span> - ocaml-batteries - new
+  upstream release, which also fix old FTBFS
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 529040]]</span> - magit - add missing deps
+  (mixed NMU / sponsoring for Marius Vollmer)
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 549590]]</span> - magit - avoid installing
+  install.info (mixed NMU / sponsoring for Marius Vollmer)
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 567003]]</span> - firestarter - lower
+  severity+unreproducible, user should use gksu or equivalent
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 571454]]</span> - gmerlin - fix
+  missing-dep FTBFS on kfreebsd, patch by Christian Marillat
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 562039]]</span> - ecasound - fix Emacs
+  deps in the -el package
+
+Random points:
+
+* [thanks to Thosrten](https://www.mirbsd.org/permalinks/wlog-10_e20100304-tg-g10038.htm#e20100304-tg-g10038_wlog-10)
+  which replied to my call for help and squashed [[!debbug 559822]]. BTW,
+  there's one more RC in that bug set: [[!debbug 559808]] (hint hint!), but you
+  need patience as gnash took ages to build ...
+
+* **tip of the week**: removing a DELAYED upload when you don't have the
+  .changes around anymore can be daunting (in fact, all combinations of dcut
+  commands I've tried failed). If that happens to you, remember that
+  <http://ftp-master.debian.org/deferred/> can come to the rescue: it stores
+  .changes file of DELAYED uploads (properly *un*signed)
+
+* a lot of **new participants**: let's welcome on the RCBW board
+  [Emilio](http://emilio.pozuelo.org/?p=62),
+  [Marco](http://marcotmarcot.wordpress.com/?p=78), and
+  [Rafael](http://kontesti.me/~rafael)
