[SOLVED] a note on eudev dist-upgrade ascii -> beowulf (bug #598)

there's this bug #598 [1] that affects dist-upgrades to beowulf.
even though bug is closed, fixed package for beowulf release is only in beowulf-proposed-updates/main.
came upon this today, while dist-upgrading an old lamp vps from ascii to beowulf.
did not have beowulf-proposed-updates repo enabled at first, so got continuous dpkg failures while trying to dist-upgrade.. after reading beowulf release notes[2] i managed to dist-upgrade everything succesfully (= by enabling beowulf-proposed-updates + update/dist-upgrade again).
note, there is a typo in release notes.. in eg. beowulf sources.list mentions "beowulf-proposed" and not "beowulf-proposed-updates" so it failed at first copy-paste.

my suggestion would be to copy/move eudev fixed version 3.2.9-10~beowulf1 [3] to beowulf/main. don't know if there's any reason for sticking with 3.2.9-9~beowulf1 (?)
and/or fix the typo in release notes.

thanks,
d.

Done.

The version of eudev (previous version 3.2.9-9~beowulf1) in Devuan suite
beowulf has changed, as instructed by britney.

beowulf add: eudev 3.2.9-10~beowulf1
