The State of the Archive

* After no small amount of effort, the perl 5.26 and gcc-7 transitions
migrated to artful on the 10th, unblocking many of the packages that had
been stuck in -proposed.

* As GCC 7 is now the default compiler in artful, the build failures
reported at
<a href="https://qa.ubuntuwire.org/ftbfs/rebuilds/test-rebuild-20170706-gcc7-artful.h" title="https://qa.ubuntuwire.org/ftbfs/rebuilds/test-rebuild-20170706-gcc7-artful.h">https://qa.ubuntuwire.org/ftbfs/rebuilds/test-rebuild-20170706-gcc7-artf...</a>
tml now apply to 17.10. Please help us resolve these failing packages for
the release.

* Next in line we have the Qt 5.9 transition. Look for more news about
this next week!
