There're numerous patches from Debian developers available via:
individual package links example:
Relevant package version could be obtained from the first link.

Some of those patches are Debian-specific while others are generally relevant fixes. We should go over all packaged projects and submit all relevant patches to gerrit for review.

Note: Debian seems to have the most recent versions packaged compared to other repositories according to repology - see for example

This patch needs to be removed by the maintainer, it jeopardizes any use of libosmogb:

can you be more specific why it jeopardizes any use of libosmogb? Also, was this reported as a debian bug? If not, why? If so, please include the reference to the debian bugtracker here. thanks!

Also, the issue is still marked as "new" and "0%" even thought some work was done months ago. I wuold have expected it to go from new->in_progress, then some percentage increase, and finally go to stalled when priorities changed to stop working on it.

#7 Updated by Hoernchen 10 months ago

  • Status changed from New to In Progress
  • % Done changed from 0 to 90

All reasonable patches were merged.

As for the aliasing issue, this was added by you, and it has to be part of the cflags, since it concerns the headers and therefore other users of libosmocore, but the debian linter doesn't like such flags - see or for a short explanation.

I've just filed a debian bug for that.

#8 Updated by laforge 9 months ago
