[Bug 1398507] Re: Remove makedumpfile from syncpackage blacklist


Please, please, please _DON'T_ remove makedumpfile from the syncpackage

In order to have a working version of makedumpfile in Debian Jessie, the
version in Sid has been deliberately brought back to 1.5.3-2 so it can
be unblocked by the release team and included in Jessie from Sid.

Once this gets done and Jessie is released, an updated version of 1.5.7
with systemd enablement will be uploaded to Sid and we can then remove
it from the blacklist.

Otherwise, a very old version will make it to Vivid
