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.

Remove static libraries 2013-10-20 Allan McRae REQUIRES DEVTOOLS FROM TESTING! We are adding options=('!staticlibs') as the default to our makepkg.conf. A few packages genuinely need their static libraries, so these need options=('staticlibs') added to their PKGBUILDs. Those that do not need their static libraries can be rebuilt once a new devtools release is made. 683 0 Rebuild Complete
Confirming need for libtool files 2013-10-20 Allan McRae Removing libtool files is about to become the default in makepkg.conf. These packages all have libtool files. Check if they are genuinely needed and if so add options=('libtool') to the PKGBUILD. If the libtool files need removed, either build with options=('!libtool) or wait for the new devtools release to build them. I will remove all options=('!libtool) from PKGBUILDs once a devtools release is made. 102 0 Rebuild Complete

graphviz-2.34.0 2013-09-29 Gaetan Bisson With graphviz-2.34.0, upstream enforces the switch to the new cgraph API. Please recompile your apps against graphviz-2.34.0-1 and push them to [staging]. If cgraph support is not readily available for your app, see if a patch exists. As a last resort, disable graphviz support from your app. I will not maintain an outdated graphviz, and I have had enough of the struggle between graph and cgraph; so the only solution I see is to go with upstream. Note that I have disabled ruby bindings as I found no way to get them to compile. Suggestions welcome but I'm not overly concerned by this... Cheers. 3 0 Rebuild Complete

Replace PIL with Pillow 2013-09-15 Balló György PIL is replaced with Pillow, which is an actively maintained drop-in replacement, with one detail: the PIL modules now use relative imports between each other, so it is no longer possible to write 'import Image', but one needs to write 'from PIL import Image'. 1. Replace python{,2}-imaging dependency with python2-pillow. 2. Run the following command in the root of the extracted package. If it has some result, then the package needs to be patched probably: grep -R -e '^[ ]*import.* Image,' -e '^[ ]*import.* Image[ ]*$' All rebuild should go to staging/community-staging first.

Replacement of distribute dependency in favour of setuptools 2013-08-17 Ángel Velásquez Procedure: Replace all your depends/makedepends of python-distribute and python2-distribute in favour of python-setuptools and python2-setuptools respectively. It shouldn't be any breakage (the PKGBUILD have a magic replaces line) but still we should nuke distribute anyway. See for more info If you don't see here any of your packages and uses some of these dependencies feel free to edit the TODO list and add it. 123 0 Rebuild Complete

Miscellaneous license issues 2013-08-14 Eric Bélanger A user sent me a list of packages with several licensing issues: missing custom and BSD/MIT licenses, incorrect license field, etc. You can see the list here[1] if you want to know the actual issue with your package. The fixed packages can go straight in the regular repos, so there is no need to use the staging or testing repos. If there are false positives in the list, mark it as completed.

PHP 5.5 scripts check list 2013-08-10 Pierre Schmitz These packages contain *.php files and should be checked if they still work with PHP 5.5 from [testing]. There might be false positives; just mark them as complete. Mark compatible packages as complete. If needed push a fixed version to the stable repos ([extra] and [community]).

Can db support be dropped from your pkg? 2013-08-04 Andreas Radke Due to the license change in db5 (MIT style) to db6 (AGPLv3) we drop the db6 update and will keep db5 in core for now. Berkeley db5 won't see much further updates if any at all. We should check each package that now links to it if that functionality is essentially required. I'm going to remove all db bump related packages from staging repo. I'm also going to revert the ToDo list to incomplete for each pkg for checking if a pkg can be build without db support. On the long run we should move db in a first step to extra and maybe later drop it completely. So go on and fix svn trunk to the old state or rebuild it to testing repo without db support wherever possible without loosing important features and mark the ToDo list. -Andy 38 0 Rebuild Complete

Small update: not every package likes new guile, guile1.8 is available in [staging]. 13 0 Rebuild Complete
update bluez dependencies 2013-06-01 Tom Gundersen bluez has been updated to version 5, which is not compatible with version 4. I therefore split the package into the daemon (not compat) and the libs (compat) and added the old daemon as bluez4. Everything should 'just work' as before, but dependencies must be updated. Packages depending on 'bluez' must be updated to depend on 'bluez4' (if using the dbus interface), 'bluez-libs' (if linking to the libs) and/or 'bluez-utils' (if using any of the tools). Makedepends can be changed in svn only, no rebuild is necessary. Move rebuilt packages to [staging], they will move after the usermove has left [testing]. 27 0 Rebuild Complete
No files in /bin, /sbin or /usr/sbin 2013-05-30 Allan McRae Move files in the /bin, /sbin or /usr/sbin directories to /usr/bin. Put all packages in [staging] but do not build using the staging repo (as this probably will not work...) Any packages that can safely go to the main repos after moving the files should just go to the main repos straight away. 120 0 Rebuild Complete

Remove old initscipts rc.d files 2013-05-12 Allan McRae The time since initscipts became unsupported is sufficient that everyone should have transitioned and these files should be removed. Leaving them in packages appears to be causing some confusion among our users. 146 0 Rebuild Complete
Move files to /usr/bin if possible 2013-05-12 Allan McRae This is a list of packages that install files to /bin, /sbin or /usr/sbin. For many of these, the files can be moved to /usr/bin without causing issues. This will ease the final stages of the /usr move. If moving the files at this stage will cause an issue, do not do it... Just mark it as completed. [Edit] TODO list canceled in favor of just doing the /usr move... 0 0 Rebuild Complete
libsasl/cyrus-sasl 2.1.26 rebuild 2013-05-10 Bartłomiej Piotrowski Due to probably pointless soname change in libsasl and cyrus-sasl, some packages require rebuild.
