After the Debian buster release, django in Debian sid/bullseye has been updated to 2.2.
Not only does this version have a number of incompabilities (to former 1.11), it also, more importantly, drops python 2 support.
With mini-buildd 1.0.x (stable) being python 2, it cannot be maintained in current Debian Development. This also in turn means, I cannot provide updates for buster and stretch through Debian Backports.
Fwiw, in post-buster Debian Development, the status currently does not look promising:
- 1.0.x (unstable): May still sort-of work for some time as long as the django 1.11/py2 artifact linger around. Will soon cease to work entirely.
- 1.1.x (experimental): Broken atm due to django 2.2. Will soon update to make it work again.
I will continue to support mini-buildd 1.0.x (stable) for buster and stretch.
Releases now go through the Hellfield Archive (i.e., my personal repository) only. Use buster|stretch-ab-stable for releases, buster|stretch-ab-snapshot for the adventurer. Alternatively, use the 1.0.x branch on salsa to roll your own.
In Debian unstable, mini-buildd will practically be unavailable for some time.
In Debian unstable+experimental, there will soon be a working version of the development branch again (using py3 && django 2.2).
Situation will all clear up again when the development branch (finally) gets released and uploaded to unstable.
