Ensure Tails installer is removed from Debian & Ubuntu by the end of 2019
upload the changes from #16011 (closed) to sid, stretch-backports and Ubuntu PPA; see the plan on #16011 (comment 19907) for detailed timing info
late February: get Tails Installer removed from testing via a RC bug that’ll trigger the auto-removal process at some point during the Buster freeze; don’t do that earlier because we might need to get some follow-up fixes into stretch-backports if we messed it up, and we can’t do that anymore once the package is removed from testing
- at the end of 2019:
- drop from Debian sid → submitted removal request to ftpmasters for unstable, see https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=942790
→ I did not request removal from stretch-bpo.
drop from Ubuntu PPA→ done on Oct 21st 2019
write email to help desk in case users complain
adjust our release process / packaging doc→ done in feature/16012-remove-tails-installer → merged to master so that nobody tries to commit to salsa, as the repo is now read-only.
adjust Vcs-control fields→ done in tails-installer.git: 9122a5408f4804a61ef0966ba63bd8b97713cbad
archive the repository on salsa.d.o→ no commits are possible anymore.
keep old branches for reference in the packaging repo→ if the upstream developers want to change this, they can do that and refer to the archived version on https://salsa.debian.org/pkg-privacy-team/tails-installer
(this is part of core work in Debian)
