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
OpenSSL 1.1.0 Rebuild 2017-01-29 Pierre Schmitz See https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2017-January/028673.html Needs to be moved together with the libgit2 rebuild. For packages which needs a lot of fixing and not a simple patch, you can use the openssl-1.0 package For pkg-config builds use: export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0/pkgconfig For cmake cmake it's -DOPENSSL_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/openssl-1.0 -DOPENSSL_SSL_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0/libssl.so -DOPENSSL_CRYPTO_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0/libcrypto.so 359 0 Rebuild Complete
opencv 3.2 2017-01-29 Antonio Rojas libopencv_*.so.3.1 -> libopencv-*.so.3.2 9 0 Rebuild Complete
protobuf 3.2.0 2017-01-29 Lukas Fleischer Please rebuild affected packages and move them to [staging]/[community-staging]. 19 0 Rebuild Complete
NSS update 2017-01-25 Jan Alexander Steffens NSS 3.28 requires changes in Gecko-based packages in order not to break HTTP2. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1323209 The following patch has to be backported: https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/raw-rev/361ac226da2a Firefox 51 is already compatible. Packages go to [staging]. Perhaps an opportunity to drop xulrunner? 5 0 Rebuild Complete
Qt 5.8 2017-01-23 Antonio Rojas These packages fail to build against Qt 5.8 and need to be fixed before moving it to [testing] 6 0 Rebuild Complete
Phasing out old GNOME libraries 2017-01-20 Balló György The following GNOME libraries are deprecated since 2008, and unmaintained since 2011: gnome-vfs, libbonobo, libbonoboui, libgnome, libgnomeui, libsexy, orbit2 We try to get rid from these packages. This TODO contains a list of packages which depend (directly or indirectly) on gnome-vfs, libsexy or orbit2. If the package can be built without these libraries, do so. Otherwise, contact with upstream for a solution, or remove the package. Updated packages can go straight to extra/community. 60 0 Rebuild Complete
Phasing out qtwebkit 2017-01-20 Balló György QtWebKit for Qt 4 has been unmaintained for quite a while, and lots of CVEs have accumulated. For more information about the WebKit situation, take a look at https://blogs.gnome.org/mcatanzaro/2016/02/01/on-webkit-security-updates/ To protect our users we should try to limit the packages using qtwebkit, with the goal of eventually getting rid of it completely. This TODO contains a list of packages which depend (directly or indirectly) on qtwebkit, except: - if the package depends on kdelibs and it doesn't use the libkdewebkit.so library, - if the package depends on python{,2}-pyqt4 and it doesn't use the QtWebKit module. What should be done: - If the package can be updated to Qt 5, do so. - Otherwise, if QtWebKit is an optional dependency, build without it. - Otherwise, consider removing the package, especially if it's a browser. Updated packages can go straight to extra/community. If nothing can be done right now, mark the package as completed anyway. We'll be evaluating the situation again after this TODO is through. 34 0 Rebuild Complete
Phasing out gstreamer0.10 2017-01-20 Balló György GStreamer 0.10 has been unmaintained for quite a while, [1] and some CVEs have accumulated. [2] The last release was in 2012. Applications should use GStreamer 1 now. To protect our users, we try to get rid from the following packages: gstreamer0.10, gstreamer0.10-base, gstreamer0.10-bad, gstreamer0.10-bad-plugins, gstreamer0.10-base-plugins, gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, gstreamer0.10-good, gstreamer0.10-good-plugins, gstreamer0.10-mm, gstreamer0.10-python, gstreamer0.10-ugly, gstreamer0.10-ugly-plugins, perl-gstreamer, perl-gstreamer-interfaces This TODO contains a list of packages which depend (directly or indirectly) on gstreamer0.10. - If the package can be updated to GStreamer 1, do so. - Otherwise, if GStreamer is an optional dependency, build without it. - Otherwise, remove the package. Updated packages can go straight to extra/community.

Phasing out webkitgtk{,2} 2017-01-19 Jan Alexander Steffens WebkitGTK+ 2.4 has been unmaintained for quite a while, and lots of CVEs have accumulated. The last release fixing CVEs, 2.4.10, only fixed about half the vulnerabilities known, and that release was only made because 2.4.9 was broken with GTK+ 3.20, and Evolution quickly needed a working HTML renderer. For more information about the WebKit situation, take a look at https://blogs.gnome.org/mcatanzaro/2016/02/01/on-webkit-security-updates/ To protect our users we should try to limit the packages using webkitgtk(2), with the goal of eventually getting rid of it completely. This TODO contains a list of packages which depend (directly or indirectly) on webkitgtk or webkitgtk2. If the package can be updated to webkit2gtk, do so. Otherwise, if WebKit is an optional dependency, build without it. Otherwise, consider removing the package, especially if it's a browser. Updated packages can go straight to extra/community. If nothing can be done right now, mark the package as completed anyway. We'll be evaluating the situation again after this TODO is through. 72 0 Rebuild Complete

Use gpg signatures and https sources 2016-11-01 Dave Reisner This package list contains packages which could benefit from one or both of the following: 1) Addition of one to many PGP signatures for remotely fetched sources 2) Use of https for one to many remotely fetched sources Specific pkgbase needs are detailed here: Wants GPG: http://pkgbuild.com/~dreisner/todo/use-gpg.txt Wants HTTPS: http://pkgbuild.com/~dreisner/todo/use-https.txt These changes can be included the next time the package is updated, or archrelease'd out of band without the need for bumping the pkgrel. NB: These lists were automatically generated by scripts which scanned the .SRCINFO, but also spot checked for errors. Apologies for any false positives. 1431 0 Rebuild Complete
vimdoc hook cleanup 2016-10-31 Anatol Pomozov vim-runtime package has added a vimdoc generation hook. The hook executes "vim --cmd ":helptags /usr/share/vim/vimfiles/doc" if there are any changes in /usr/share/vim/vimfiles/doc https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/tree/trunk/vimdoc.hook?h=packages/vim It effectively replaces *.install scripts in the following vim-* plugin packages. Please remove unneeded *.install scripts from these packages. Packages do not need to go to [staging], it can go directly to [stable]/[testing]. See https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/51591 that requested the vim hook functionality. 24 0 Rebuild Complete
