18% of Consumers Can't Tell HD From SD

You guys should start using standard acronyms for titles. SD doesn't stands for Standard Definition but for Secure Digital, which makes people who use them almost daily think people is confusing High Definition TV with memory cards.

Why there's so much FTBFS!?

ghostbar38 ghostbar38 writes  |  more than 7 years ago I cannot believe the amount of FTBFS-bugs that are in the Debian BTS. I was checking the RC-bugs page and almost 35% of the bugs are FTBFS.

The worst part is that are so easy to avoid! Just using pbuilder and debuild so you can build them directly in a clean chroot.

BTW, that helps you a lot when you need to know wich Build-Depends you need exactly. Is as easy to use as write pdebuild in your package working-tree.

But being so easy I cannot believe that people don't answer to patchs that you send for fixing this FTBFS-bugs, sometimes are so trivial that you think twices to make a NMU. I will start doing NMU more often if I want to see RC-bugs number seriously get down. I will need a lot more of sponsors then, hehe. They will probably start to charge me for each upload, hehe.
