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.

Name Creation Date Creator Description Package Count Incomplete Count Kind Status
glibc-2.20 2014-09-08 Allan McRae rebuilds for toolchain update 4 0 Rebuild Complete
libunistring 0.9.4 rebuild 2014-09-06 Eric Bélanger => 6 0 Rebuild Complete

PHP 5.6 Rebuild 2014-08-28 Pierre Schmitz These packages contain PHP modules and need to be rebuild for PHP 5.6. Note: The rebuilds are already done. 23 0 Rebuild Complete
Fix "bad mtime" pyc/pyo files for python packages 2014-08-27 Felix Yan The list of packages are currently having pyc/pyo files with "bad mtime" (e.g. some/all .pyc/pyo files are older than their corresponding .py files), which was often caused by doing modification after installation. The most common case is sed'ing shebangs after calling python2 install. Please fix this by moving the needed modifications into prepare() phase. The problem is that the interpreter will refuse to load the files, which increases load time for each affected file in the package, and renders the shipped pyc/pyo files useless. A bit more background: A bug report of python2 was opened: Many thanks to Kyle so we have the tool to generate the list [1]. An old list had been put on the topic of #archlinux-tu for more than 8 months. I've generated the list again and am opening this TODO as that list is somewhat outdated as of now, and a TODO should help the progress further. [1] 51 0 Rebuild Complete
ppp 2.4.7 2014-08-23 Jan Alexander Steffens Rebuilds in [testing] are already done; this list is just for the eventual move. 6 0 Rebuild Complete
glew 1.11 rebuild 2014-08-18 Maxime Gauduin glew 1.11 has a new soname. It's already in [extra] so please push directly in [extra] or [community], and to [staging] or [community-staging] for packages overlapping with the boost rebuild. 38 0 Rebuild Complete
boost 1.56.0 rebuild 2014-08-11 Bartłomiej Piotrowski Boost Rebuild Show™ is back! This time there are some ABI and source breaking changes. More information can be found in release notes[1]. Please push rebuilt packages to [staging]. [1] 81 0 Rebuild Complete
wxgtk no-STL rebuild 2014-08-08 Florian Pritz Rebuild against wxgtk 3.0.1-2 and push to staging. 12 0 Rebuild Complete
twisted->python2-twisted rename 2014-08-02 Felix Yan The twisted package was renamed to python2-twisted as a Python 3 counterpart was added. Please update your PKGBUILD and change the dependency name to "python2-twisted". Also, if twisted was the only reason not to ship the package with Python 3, you might check "python-twisted" and give it a try. The rebuild is not in a hurry and can be postponed (same as the lzo2->lzo one), and no [staging] needed as well. 17 0 Rebuild Complete
protobuf-c 1.0.0 rebuild 2014-08-01 Bartłomiej Piotrowski → 3 0 Rebuild Complete
lzo2->lzo rename 2014-07-31 Anatol Pomozov 'lzo2' package was renamed to more correct Arch name 'lzo'. Please update your PKGBUILD and change the dependency name to 'lzo'. The actual rebuild can be postponed, there is no hard deadline for it. No need to push packages to [staging], push it directly to [testing] and then [stable]. This is just dependency name change. lzo2 and lzo are ABI compatible. On a related note - some packages use version restriction for lzo dependency (e.g. lzo>2.06). The restriction can be dropped. lzo 2.08 has been in the repo for a long time and I doubt it will be downgraded. 24 0 Rebuild Complete
x264/libx264 split 2014-07-26 Bartłomiej Piotrowski In order to support 10bit depth in x264, the package has been split into three standalone packages: x264 (containing CLI tools and development headers) and libx264/libx264-10bit. Please confirm whether your packages make use of command line utilities and if not, replace the dependency on x264 with libx264. Note that x264 in [staging] doesn't pull libx264 anymore. It may be also needed to put x264 explicitly in makedepends array. 12 0 Rebuild Complete
openconnect 6.00 rebuild 2014-07-22 Felix Yan => Packages go to [staging]. 3 0 Rebuild Complete
xorg-server 1.16 rebuild 2014-07-18 Laurent Carlier Rebuild is done in staging There is an ABI bump with: X-ABI-VIDEODRV_VERSION: 15 to 18 X-ABI-XINPUT_VERSION: 20 to 21 55 0 Rebuild Complete

mtree rebuilds 2014-06-29 Allan McRae pacman-4.1 added mtree files to packages to enable use to verify more aspects of the packages installed on the filesystem. These packages have not been rebuilt in a long time so are missing this file. Now with all repos! Note there is no real rush for this, but it would be good to have done before pacman-4.2 is released (scheduled for August). 1075 0 Rebuild Complete

giflib soname bump 2014-05-27 Jan de Groot Slight API change, comes with a soname bump. Code might require patching, as open/close functions take an integer as 2nd option now. This replaces the old GifFile->Error pointer. If no error handling is done in the software, just pass NULL here. 33 0 Rebuild Complete
librevenge forces .so bumps in various libs 2014-05-25 Andreas Radke Newly released librevenge required new releases with .so bumps in many libraries used by various applications dealing with documents: * libabw - not yet in our repos * libcdr /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/ * libe-book - not yet in our repos * libetonyek /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/ * libfreehand - not yet in our repos * libmspub /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/ * libmwaw - not yet in our repos * libodfgen /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/ * libvisio /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/ * libwpd /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/ * libwpg /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/ * libwps /usr/lib/ _> /usr/lib/ 14 0 Rebuild Complete
Removing glib/gtk from make/optdepends 2014-05-17 Eric Bélanger We are going to remove the old glib and gtk packages from the repos [1]. Obviously, packages that require them will also be removed. This todo list is for packages which has a make/optdepends on either glib, gtk or a package that has glib/gtk in its dependency tree. Remove gtk support or patch to build without gtk if possible. Push the updated packages straight in the [extra] or [community] repos. [1] 9 0 Rebuild Complete
KActivities4 2014-05-17 Andrea Scarpino IGNORE THIS: non really needed because adding it to kdebase-runtime will add it everywhere it is used. KActivities has been split between kactivities4 and libkactivities4 to allow co-instability with KF5. Packages that links to needs to explicitly depend upon libkactivities4. 2 0 Rebuild Complete

Drop nepomuk support 2014-03-08 Andrea Scarpino KDE SC 4.13 packages will not provide Nepomuk and Soprano support. In details the following libraries will be removed: * * * * * * * * * * * KDE 4.13 is already in [kde-unstable], this means the packages in this TODO will not work with it unless you rebuild your package without Nepomuk support (this way it can be used by people using either 4.12 or 4.13). 6 0 Rebuild Complete
