Package Todo Lists

Todo lists are used by the developers when a rebuild of a set of packages is needed. This is common when a library has a version bump, during a toolchain rebuild, or a general cleanup of packages in the repositories. The progress can be tracked here, and completed todo lists can be browsed as well.

tbb 2021.4 rebuild 2021-11-23 Felix Yan -> Packages go to staging repos. 23 1 Rebuild Incomplete
switch to espeak-ng 2021-09-02 Alexander Epaneshnikov espeak is unmaintained for a long time. espeak-ng is a new active fork. we need to switch dependent packages to espeak-ng and then remove espeak from the repository. 6 3 Task Incomplete
Rebuild against new release of libmilter 2021-08-18 George Rawlinson New upstream release of libmilter. Since upstream isn't interested in applying shared library patches, it's still a static library. 5 1 Task Incomplete
Unreproducible ruby packages 2021-05-27 Jelle van der Waa This todo list is for unreproducible ruby packages mostly due to or other files which should not be required for packaged ruby modules. According to our packaging guidelines the `ext` directory is not required anymore after the installation step. Example of non-reproducible package As this is not a rebuild, packages can directly go in either [community] or [extra]. 30 19 Task Incomplete
Cleanup of python-setuptools dependency for console scripts 2021-01-13 Felix Yan In recent versions of setuptools and Python, console-script entry points are using stdlib importlib by default, thus python-setuptools (provider of the pkg_resource module) is no longer a runtime dependency. Please check your package. If python-setuptools is only listed as dependency or optional dependency because of its console scripts (not in install_requires for other reasons, for example), please consider moving it to makedepends or removed, respectively. Packages go to stable repos directly. 251 61 Task Incomplete
GTK 2 EOL 2020-12-20 Alexander Rødseth GTK 2 has reached its end of life: Many of the listed packages can support GTK3 or 4 just by tweaking the build configuration. Please check if it is possible to upgrade packages to GTK3 or GTK4 (which are pretty similar to each other, in terms of API), or drop the dependency on the "gtk2" package, if it's an optional dependency. Just mark packages as complete if it's not feasible to patch, drop or upgrade them. A build-time gtk2 replacement that is a compatibility layer for using gtk3 is available as the "gtk2-compat" package. It may only work for some projects. Upgraded packages can be pushed directly to extra/community. Thank you! 105 102 Task Incomplete
Remove usage of makepkg subroutines from PKGBUILDs 2020-01-17 David Runge The use of makepkg subroutines has been discussed in an old ticket [1]. In 2017 a warning about this was added to namcap and recently the wiki has been been updated to reflect this [2]. A list of packages (with false positives) can be found here [3]. Time for a cleanup! As a sidenote: If you find, that you are shadowing a test run in check() (e.g. `test || warning "Test is broken"`) please consider *why* you are doing this and whether only a subset of the tests can be run instead (e.g. because parts of the tests are integration tests anyways, that can not be run in makechrootpkg).

Conversion of programs that use Python 2 to Python 3 2019-12-23 Chih-Hsuan Yen Python 2.7 branch is going to be EOL'ed on 2020-01-01 [1]. A previous Todo [2] suggests to remove unused Python 2 libraries. In this Todo, I suggest to investigate programs that still use Python 2, either as runtime dependency or build/check dependencies, and see if it's possible to use Python 3 instead. Notes for some packages are available at Whenever you have changed a package to use Python 3, feel free to either move the corresponding row to the Done section or simply remove the row. Also, feel free to update notes if there are something new (e.g., a new Python 3-compatible version released, patches merged, new patches proposed, ...). Package can go directly into the repo; [staging] is not necessary. [1] [2] 203 13 Task Incomplete
