It seems we won’t manage to do Bug #17005 by upgrading All The Things to po4a 0.55 in time for Tails 4.0, so for now let’s do it by ensuring all relevant systems run 0.47-2.

  • Status changed from In Progress to Needs Validation
  • Assignee deleted (intrigeri)

Please review & merge into devel.

Note that we do not install po4a by default, so all that matters here is APT pinning that Additional Software will use.

I applied the changes made on this branch to a running Tails devel, then confirmed that apt update && apt install po4a installs the intended version.

I did not bother:

  • testing po4a in an image built from this branch, because I’ve been using that version of po4a on sid for months (as per the RM doc)
  • looking at CI results apart of image build, because I don’t see how adding an APT source + pinning for a package we don’t install could affect Tails’ behavior
