example transition handling
« on: 2016/04/26, 09:43:50 »
Hello,
I'd like to demonstrate transition handling with a small example.
Testdisk depends on ntfs-3g and so it is affected by the latest ntfs-3g transition.

More exactly:
The package testdisk version 7.1+20150830-1 depends on the virtual package ntfs-3g861,
which is provided by the package ntfs-3g version 1:2015.3.14AR.1-1+b1.

Recently testdisk is broken in sid because a new version of ntfs-3g was uploaded.
The upload is necessary to rebuild testdisk for sid and
while the rebuild is pending testdisk will be broken in sid.

To keep testdisk you may set ntfs-3g on hold during the transition with "apt-mark hold ntfs-3g".
My personal taste is keeping the package without setting it on hold permanently.

Btw as you can see in the screenshot the transition is over now.
