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 Status
LLVM 6.0 2018-03-16 Evangelos Foutras -> -> In addition to the above soname changes, our clang package no longer ships static libraries. Instead, those are built as individual shared libraries (using CMake's BUILD_SHARED_LIBS flag). ** I'll add LLVM 5 packages once it's clear they are needed for software that hasn't been ported to LLVM 6 yet. Feel free to ping me on IRC for this. ** EDIT: It looks like all packages build after fixing 1-2 renamed symbols, so it won't be needed to add LLVM 5 packages. 30 0 Complete

Switch to systemd-sysusers 2017-12-15 Bruno Pagani We are fully embracing the use of systemd-sysusers to create system users and groups required by packages. The filesystem package has been switched to this, now is the turn of every other package having not yet switched. You mostly need to provide an accurate sysusers.d file (see and have you package install it under /usr/lib/sysusers.d/<pkgname>.conf. You can also (thanks @heftig) do a one liner (in most cases) from the install() function like this (replacing <sysusers.d content> with the actual content): echo '<sysusers.d content>' | install -Dm644 /dev/stdin "$pkgdir"/usr/lib/sysusers.d/$pkgname.conf You can see several examples in the unbound, couchdb or stubby packages. Once done, you might even be able to remove the .install file (we have hook to run systemd-sysusers). Don’t hesitate to ask me if you’re unsure. ;) Some cases might be tricky. Generated on with: grep --files-with-matches useradd /srv/svntogit/repos/*/*/trunk/* grep --files-with-matches groupadd /srv/svntogit/repos/*/*/trunk/* There might be false detections, just mark as done then. P.S.: I initially started by opening issues for some packages while providing the correct sysusers file, so if your package is concerned just look at your assigned issues. 87 0 Complete

ImageMagick upgrade and split 2017-12-03 Jan Alexander Steffens This is a TODO for [staging]/[community-staging]. ImageMagick has been split into libmagick and imagemagick. If your package depends on the libraries only, change the dependency to libmagick. If your package doesn't build against libmagick 7, change the dependency to libmagick6 and add (before configure): export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/lib/imagemagick6/pkgconfig" If your package requires the executables, (make)depend on imagemagick. imagemagick 7 can be installed together with libmagick6. Please only depend on imagemagick6 if you absolutely can't avoid it. As of now, this rebuild list is limited to packages discovered via sogrep. 19 0 Complete

Enchant and libical soname bump 2017-11-22 Jan de Groot Enchant and libical dropped some deprecated functions and soname was bumped.

Please generate patches instead. Some help for patching packages that BLFS doesn't have patches for: 39 0 Complete
