No clear roadmap is established. Refer to the tasks below.

Tasks: Issues & ToDo Items

This is the (non-complete) list of todo items:


General Issues

The Launchpad (LP) platform has quite some issues with importing code from github, especially with repositories converted over or merged from mercurial [issue_bzr_hg-git] and git repositories with submodules [issue_bzr_submodules] .

→ This stalls many packages from being updated or newly packaged at all.

The native git support on LP is still in development [issue_lp_git] .

Existing packages

List of issues with existing packages
Package Issues Task Status Changes wrt Ubuntu repository Debian files
python-spyder correct the GUI logo on linux (in the taskbar & programs list)

According to runtime-dependencies add packages:

nbconvert: Manipulation of notebooks in the Editor, path.py (package stalled due to import issues [issue_bzr_hg-git] ) and pickleshare: Show import completions on the Editor and consoles as recommended dependencies


Different Binary Dependencies for package: python-sympy – rationale:

mentioned as optional module similar to Matplotlib, Numpy, etc. – See: Debian Policy Manual - Declaring relationships between packages

Python-mpltools Add http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/python-concurrent.futures, as the page says: Backport of the concurrent.futures package from Python 3.2, see: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/futures, better: https://askubuntu.com/questions/592280/which-ubuntu-package-provides-the-pypi-future-package, http://python-future.org/reference.html?highlight-builtin#module-future.builtins, https://pypi.python.org/pypi/future      
Python-pvlib update to new setup.py: control: clearsky.py requires scipy.io, control / copyright, update readme      
python-pandas problem with importing code from upstream into LP [issue_bzr_hg-git]   stalled / pending

[issue_bzr_hg-git] (1, 2, 3) Bazaar issue: hg-git import issues with bzr: non-standard commit headers not supported by bzr (bzrlib.plugins.git.errors.UnknownCommitExtra: Unknown extra fields)
[issue_bzr_submodules] (1, 2) Bazaar issue: limitations in Bazaar: repository you are fetching from contains submodules, which are not yet supported.
[issue_lp_git] Launchpad issue: Git import support not implemented, see Git code hosting beta, bugs for launchpad.net git issue, import external code into a LP git repo (natively), Please support daily builds via git
