Release Critical Bug report for Week 49

The bug webinterface of the Ultimate Debian Database currently knows about the following release critical bugs:

In Total:1656
Affecting Wheezy:1005
Wheezy only:156
Remaining to be fixed in Wheezy:849

Of these 849 bugs, the following tags are set:

Pending in Wheezy:53
Patched in Wheezy:157
Duplicates in Wheezy:50
Can be fixed in a security Update:31
Contrib or non-free in Wheezy:9
Claimed in Wheezy:0
Delayed in Wheezy:9
Otherwise fixed in Wheezy:67

Ignoring all the above (multiple tags possible) 551 bugs need to be fixed by Debian Contributors to get Debian 7.0 Wheezy released.

However, with the view of the Release Managers, 906 need to be dealt with for the release to happen.

Please see Interpreting the release critical bug statistics for an explanation of the different numbers.

RCBW (Release Critical Bugs of the Week) work flow addendum

Gregor Herrmann kindly posted his usual workflow for preparing non maintainer uploads (NMUs) fixing Release Critical bugs. I'd like to add, that it is usually a very good idea to also pts-subscribe to the package you uploaded, just in case you introduce some new bugs (see for #651452 or #651112 for examples of bugs I got to know after uploading NMUs).

When subscribing you'll get copies of BTS activity, teesting migration and similar. You can either subscribe to that via the package tracking system at<packagename> (see for example the iftop PTS) in the lower left box, or via the pts-subscribe command in the devscripts package.

I prefer the later method, as that also creates a pts-unsubscribe job via at. But please know, that you need a working mail transfer agent as well as the tool at for that. Well, and it helps if you have a machine running most of the time ;)
