Raring package importer breakage


Currently every[1] package import is failing[2] because the new 'raring' series is not present in the list of releases obtainted from distro-info.

The package importer is using version 0.10 which is the latest in quantal[3], so we probably need an updated version of that before any of these imports will work. Manually hacking /usr/share/distro-info/ubuntu.csv would do, but is exactly the kind of thing we're not meant to mess around with any more. Note, there is an old distro-info branch on jubany, but what's actually being used is the installed package.

As a related issue, the only people currently subscribed to package importer failures in /home/pkg_import/.forward are James Westby and Vincent Ladeuil, as the Launchpad maintenance squad nominally has responsibility for this now, they really need access to jubany and alerts when things break.
