Here it is
Debian had seven hundred thousand bugs reported in its history.
Yet another French winner, indeed two, this time:
- Cedric Boutillier is the winner in the "race of bug #700000" by reporting
"override: libzoom-ruby:oldlibs/extra libzoom-ruby1.8:oldlibs/extra"
against ftp.debian.org, as part of a quite massive bunch of wishlist
bug reports to deal cleanly with old transitional Ruby packages. I
somehow suspect Cédric retained his bug reports to catch the right
- I won the bet
about the day this bug report would happen by
missing it only by 7 days: I did bet for February 14th 2013, two years
after the release of squeeze and I was secretely expecting we would
also release wheezy around that time.
The French gang already got #200000 (by Michel Grentzinger) and
#400000 (by /me), and #600000 by Cyril "KiBi" Brulebois. We're good at
stupid games, as it seems.
Of course, I will soon open the wiki page for the bug #800000 bet,
which will again include a place where you can also bet for bug
#1000000. Be patient, the week-end is coming..:-)
