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.

cuda 11.1 rebuild 2020-09-28 Konstantin Gizdov CUDA 11.1 is officially considered the first production release of CUDA 11 after the General Availability version of 11.0.3. CUDA 11.1 seems to introduce some significant changes compared to CUDA 11.0, e.g. it now supports GCC 10 as host compiler. Also, notably, it is build upon driver 455.23.05 version, which is not available for public consumption yet, but official release notes say it should work fine with any version above 455.23. There is also a new PTX compiler static library and support for Ampere based cards (compute capability 8.6). IMPORTANT: we should try to retire gcc9 and ensure everything still works. 12 0 Rebuild Complete
GNOME 3.38 2020-09-27 Jan Alexander Steffens GNOME 3.38 has entered [staging]. The following changes require rebuilds: libhandy: libhandy-0.0.so.0 -> libhandy-1.so.0 libhandy0 now contains the old library. Upgrade your packages to libhandy 1 or move the dep to libhandy0. evolution-data-server: libedataserver-1.2.so.24 -> libedataserver-1.2.so.25 tepl: libtepl-4.so.0 -> libtepl-5.so.0 vala: libvala-0.48.so.0 -> libvala-0.50.so.0 (et valadoc) tracker3: libtracker-sparql-3.0.so.0 tracker still contains the old library, but its miners are no longer automatically started. Check if your package can be upgraded to tracker3 or if tracker support can reasonably be removed, otherwise leave as-is. mutter: libmutter-6.so.0 -> libmutter-7.so.0 sysprof: libsysprof-capture-3.a -> libsysprof-capture-4.a 27 0 Rebuild Complete
libupnp 1.14.0 2020-09-25 David Runge The upgrade to libupnp 1.14.0 introduces a (or rather several) soname bump(s). While mpd and vlc seem to build fine with it, amule and jami-daemon are (out-of-the-box) only compatible with libupnp <= 1.12.1. For the latter case libupnp1.12 has been added to [community-staging]. However, note that the libraries and directories have been renamed to prevent name conflicts! If you can make amule and/or jami-daemon compatible with the latest libupnp, all the better! Rebuilds go to [staging]/[community-staging]. 9 0 Rebuild Complete

removal of "xorg-font-utils" transitional package 2020-06-26 Andreas Radke We are going to drop the transitional package "xorg-font-utils" together with the ToDo list to remove unneeded fontconfig and xorg-mkfontscale dependencies from font packages. Please remove "xorg-font-utils" from all PKGBUILDs and replace with the packages that were covered by its dependencies where needed: xorg-bdftopcf / xorg-mkfontdir / xorg-mkfontscale / xorg-font-util These should only be used in "makedepends" where possible. Packages can go to extra/community. 37 0 Rebuild Complete
remove unneeded fontconfig and xorg-mkfontscale dependencies from font packages 2020-06-26 Eli Schwartz These packages only provide font data files, but depend on programs that make use of the fonts. This is a legacy of the pre-hook days, when each package included a post_upgrade scriptlet that ensured the fontconfig/xorg cache was rebuilt. The dependencies should be removed, and if/when the fontconfig or xorg-mkfontscale packages are installed, they will build the entire font cache from scratch. Be sure to also remove the xorg-font-utils dummy package if it is still a dependency. See https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/66012 48 0 Rebuild Complete
Remove .doctrees from installed files for reproducible builds 2020-06-22 Jelle van der Waa The .doctrees file is generated by sphinx are cached files used when developing documentation so that sphinx does not have to reparse all markdown files. They shouldn't be packaged as they are not required and they lead to the package being unreproducible as the pickled files contain unreproducible data. 8 0 Rebuild Complete
Perl 5.32.0 rebuild 2020-06-21 Florian Pritz packages go to staging. upstream release notes: https://metacpan.org/pod/release/XSAWYERX/perl-5.32.0/pod/perldelta.pod EDIT: we will rebuild this list automatically with Evangelos' rebuilder. 532 0 Rebuild Complete
python-pillow 7 2020-06-15 Kyle Keen Pillow 7 dropped python2 support (yay!), and tweaked the API in a reverse incompatible fashion: https://pillow.readthedocs.io/en/stable/releasenotes/ Please test if your package works (or builds for makedeps, or passes for checkdeps) with python-pillow-7, which is in [staging]. If it does work, check it off and do nothing. If it doesn't work, either patch for pillow 7 (and push to [staging]), or tweak the imports from `PIL` to `PIL6` and change the dependency to python-pillow6 (and push to [community]). Python2 packages require no changes. 46 0 Rebuild Complete

cuda 11 rebuild 2020-06-08 Sven-Hendrik Haase cuda 11 is out. It's technically an rc but nvidia is kinda so-so about rc hygiene. Important things to note: - compute_80 and sm_80 have been added so add those targets if applicable. - sm_30 and sm_32 have been dropped so remove those from your targets. - sm_52 is now the default target. - Now officially uses gcc 9 as its main compiler. Rebuilds go to testing and will stay there for a good long while. https://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-toolkit-release-notes/index.html 11 0 Rebuild Complete
Move from `go-pie` dependency to `go` 2020-06-02 Morten Linderud Yo. This is the followup after the go-pie removal. All of the listed packages should still have some dependency on go-pie. Please move these packages to the go, and utilize the new guidelines to achieve PIE and RELRO binary hardening where applicable. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Go_package_guidelines 94 0 Rebuild Complete

LLVM 10 2020-04-11 Evangelos Foutras libLLVM-9.so -> libLLVM-10.so libclang.so.9 -> libclang.so.10 libclang*.so.9 -> libclang-cpp.so.10 liblld*.so.9 -> liblld*.so.10 **Important change in this release** All of clang's C++ API is now shipped as `libclang-cpp.so` instead of the numerous component libraries we had before. This change will require patching in most packages to use the new library name. Look for upstream commits that support the new library; if that fails, Fedora and/or Gentoo should have patches for this. In addition to the above, the clang package no longer includes static libraries (which should be avoided anyway). 45 0 Rebuild Complete

Phasing out PyGTK 2020-03-14 Balló György PyGTK was used to create GTK2 applications in python2. It's deprecated and unmaintained since 2011 in favor of PyGObject, and does not receive any fixes since then. We try to get rid from this package. This list contains all applications that depend on PyGTK. What should be done: - If PyGObject port is available and usable, then try to update. - Otherwise, if the PyGTK usage can be disabled, build without it. (gimp, nmap) - Otherwise, if the package has inactive upstream, then remove it. More details: https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2020-March/029896.html 10 0 Rebuild Complete

Perl transient openssl dependencies 2020-02-08 Santiago Torres These packages may implicitly depend on perl via the base package->pacman->openssl->perl, and *may* require perl (due to mentioning the regular expression "perl" in a script). Verify if your package requires perl and add it as a depend because openssl will stop depending on it; if it is a false positive, simply mark this TODO as complete.
