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.

python-msgpack 0.5 python package rename 2018-01-22 Johannes Löthberg python-msgpack 0.5's python package name was renamed to just msgpack, which requires rebuilding things that depend on it. 0.5.0 in [community] has a dummy transitional package, but it was dropped upstream in 0.5.1. 0.5.1 is currently in [community-staging], so please rebuild and push there. 10 0 Rebuild 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 Rebuild 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 Rebuild Complete

Enchant and libical soname bump 2017-11-22 Jan de Groot Enchant and libical dropped some deprecated functions and soname was bumped. Some packages still use these deprecated functions, they will need patches. BLFS has already migrated to enchant 2.x and libical 3.x, their build manuals contain simple sed-instructions. Please generate patches instead. Some help for patching packages that BLFS doesn't have patches for: 39 0 Rebuild Complete

Packages with out of repositories dependencies 2017-10-26 Giancarlo Razzolini These packages either list AUR packages as optional dependencies, or non-existent optional dependencies. The optional deps should be moved to the appropriate repository, either [community] or [extra], alongside the main package. We should not list AUR packages as optional dependencies. 85 0 Rebuild Complete

Replace lesstif with openmotif 2017-08-31 Antonio Rojas lesstif has been dead for years, it's buggy (FS#55449, FS#47569) and even upstream discourages using it [1]. Rebuild your packages against openmotif instead so we can drop it from the repos. Packages can go straight to stable (or testing). [1] 10 0 Rebuild Complete

hardening-wrapper removal 2017-07-10 Bartłomiej Piotrowski With recent changes in toolchain, it is feasible to replace hardening-wrapper with simple rebuild against testing (with testing/devtools installed). The major differences are lack of -fstack-check (which is not enough to prevent stack clashes without full distro rebuild) and no enforcement of full RELRO if LDFLAGS are ignored. Remove hardening-wrapper from makedepends and run checksec on both old and rebuild packages to see if there is any regression. If yes, it means that build system should be patched to reflect out LDFLAGS instead; otherwise push packages to stable repositories and mark them as done. 11 0 Rebuild Complete
Remove js185 from the repos 2017-07-10 Jelle van der Waa js185 is the legacy version of the JavaScript interpreter, it has numerous security issues therefore packages should update to js or js38 where possible. 4 0 Rebuild Complete
PIE static libraries rebuild 2017-07-10 Bartłomiej Piotrowski Toolchain in [core] enforces position-independent executables. Non-PIE static libraries have to be rebuild, otherwise dependent packages will fail to build. If anything on the list seems bogus, ping me on IRC and remove from the todo. Packages can be pushed straight to [extra]/[community], as long as you remember to build them with up to date devtools and toolchain. 198 0 Rebuild Complete
