RAOFLack of copyright headers in source files isn't grounds for rejection from NEW, as long as there's a statement that the software is licensed under the GPL, right?05:27
jdongRAOF: I believe in that case ~ubuntu-archive would *like* you to make sure of the terms of the license of the headers, but right, it's not deathly necessary05:30
jdongand not, IMO, cause for rejection05:30
jdongthough of course I'd be the worst, most liberal archive admin in the world05:30
=== santiago-pgsql is now known as santiago-ve
persiaRAOF: Depends on the archive admin.  There have been several rejections for that.  Ask upstream to follow the instructions in the GPL about how to apply the GPL to their source first, and only push to the archive admins if upstream won't fix it.05:31
desertcIf I wanted to get involved with the MOTU team, then would I need to set up a separate partition or make sweeping changes to my desktop system?  I have been reading the MOTU documents, but I am still unclear what would be the physical requirements.05:35
persiadesertc: There are no physical requirements.05:36
RAOFNo, not really.  There are a variety of tools for building packages in a clean system without actually having a clean system :)05:36
persiaIt is strongly recommended that you set up either pbuilder or sbuild.  pbuilder seems to want a fairly large /tmp, and sbuild wants it's own partition area (I set aside 19.99 GB for sbuild).05:37
ScottKRAOF: There also has to be a full copy of the license in the tarball.05:39
tuxmaniacdesertc, I personally feel pbuilder is better for a start. Since I am also in the beginning stages.05:39
desertcI see.  Good to know.  Setting up a partition would not be a big deal.  I can always add another hard drive via USB.  I just was picturing having to have 09.04 configured or something.05:39
desertcum 08.04  :)05:39
RAOFScottK: Yeah, it's got a copy of the GPLv2 in there, and it says that it's GPLv2 licensed.  It's just that none of the source files have any copyright attribution at all.05:39
persiadesertc: Nope.  There are MOTU who run Dapper or even Debian.05:40
tuxmaniacdesertc, though I have not tried sbuild, pbuilder is a breeze to get started.05:40
ScottKRAOF: You're probably OK then05:40
desertcI will take a look at pbuilder and idle here.  Hope to get a handle on how to help soon.05:40
persiaRAOF: copyright attribution is different than licensing.  It is acceptable for the collective work to be under a collective copyright (although discouraged), but doing that doesn't match the instructions in the GPL for licensing.05:40
ScottKdesertc: My main desktop is still dapper.  I've got servers on Gutsy and (until tomorrow - the last one dies - Feist), a Gutsy laptop and an Edgy install on my wife's laptop.05:41

tuxmaniacpersia, thanks. I think I shall try that out on my home machine.05:45
desertcHow much space (est) does pbuilder require?05:45
* RAOF notes that sbuild-on-lvm can also be quite a lot faster than pbuilder. 05:45
desertcor sbuild05:45
persiadesertc: Lots less.  Something like 50MB per chroot tarball.05:45
RAOFAnd then a variable ammount of space while building.05:46
persiaErr.  pbuild requires lots less.  sbuild-on-lvm requires 4-5GB per chroot + 4-5GB per simultaneous build.05:46
desertcIs sbuild is recreating the environment of the entire OS?  And pbuilder is just for the individual package?05:47
desertc(taking a guess here)05:47
RAOFThey're both doing the same thing, but different technical means.05:48
persiaSimilar things.  They are only about as close as apt-get and aptitude.  Each has a few unique features, and the codebases are different.05:48
RAOFpbuilder creates a minimal ubuntu system then tars it up.  Each time it builds, it unpacks that tarball under /tmp and then chroots into it.05:48
RAOFsbuild-on-lvm has a separate lvm logical volume containing the minimal system, then uses snapshots to build in.  The reason why each lv has to be big is so that you've got enough space to install the build-dependencies & build the package.05:50
desertchmm!  thanks for the explanation!05:50
persiaIf you choose pbuilder, be sure to either have a fair amount of space available on /tmp, or if using tmpfs, a large swap partition.05:51
tuxmaniaccan I have two pbuilder chroot tar? since I am on a limited bandwidth, its not simple to clean up everytime I build a different package. I mean two pbuilder ch tar for the same dist?05:52
RAOFYou should be able to have a local apt cache, which will do what you want.05:53
RAOFI forget if pbuilder is set up to do that out of the box.05:53
persiatuxmaniac: Both pbuilder and sbuild clean up after each build.  You want a local mirror (or cache) to not download everything with each build.05:53
minghuaThat would be --aptcache option, or APTCACHE variable in pbuilderrc.05:54
desertcI have a CS background, but I've not put any of it to use since college.  I was thinking I might like to start working toward programming linux code, and I thought this might be a good way to get started on that path.  I also have work training in QA, so I think I can be pretty handy.05:55
desertcMost importantly, I have a lot of control over my time these days, which is awesome.  :)05:56
RAOFThere's really not that much programming involved in MOTU work.05:56
persiadesertc: MOTU only very rarely actually touches the linux package :)05:56
RAOFAt least, the actual *packaging* part.05:56
desertcIt will help me work toward it, by giving me a better understanding of the Ubuntu system.05:56
persiaRAOF: Depends.  There can be for bugfixing, or library porting (and we can always use more library porters)05:56
RAOFThe bug finding/fixing, yes.05:56
desertcYou don't want me programming anything right now anyway.  I probably would have trouble with helloworld() at this point.05:57
RAOFIn that case, bugfixing may well be a nice gentle reintroduction :)05:57
tuxmaniacdesertc, I get memory leaks with my hello world sometimes05:58
desertc:)  I was leading QA efforts for a popular open source project a short while ago, and I am burnt out from dealing with developers.  ;)05:58
desertcAll features and no bug fixes.  Made me understand the importance of groups that hold the projects together at a high level, like the Ubuntu Project.  :)06:00
desertcOr did you mean actually making the programmatic changes myself, RAOF?  Hmm!  Interesting idea.06:01
desertcOkay, sorry to take over the conversation, I'll keep looking at pbuilder and sbuild.06:01
RAOFdesertc: Oh, yes.  Making the changes yourself.06:01
RAOFIt's quite a different skill to be able to dive into some totally unfamiliar code and find the bug :)06:02
RAOFAnyone want to close an ITP? http://tinyurl.com/2249zg for the DDs among us.06:06

* RAOF *always* forgets priority :(06:08
desertcOkay - this will sound a bit noobish, but what does an Ubuntu programmer program?  Aren't Ubuntu packages derived from Debian, for the most part?06:09
desertcI suppose there is the installation and the upgrade software..06:09
persiadesertc: It's mostly maintenance coding.  Looking through code from upstream or from Debian and fixing bugs or improving integration.06:09
desertcAh, gotcha.  Thanks06:09
persiaMost fixes end up being patches that go to Debian or to Upstream, and are dropped in the next release.06:10

persiaAnyone have any hints for injecting a local package into an sbuild session?09:55
azeempersia: sbuild takes .dsc files09:56
azeempersia: or what do you mean with injecting?  Installing it in the chroot rather than building it?09:57
persiaazeem: Right.  I have two packages.  One build-depends on the other.  I could use a local archive of a PPA, but would like to just be able to tell sbuild I want this specific local package also installed in the chroot.09:57
persias/of a PPA/or a PPA/09:57
azeemthat's not so trivial I think, yeah09:57
azeemI usually install it manually in the chroot09:57
persiaazeem: In the base chroot?  Doesn't that affect your future builds?09:57
azeemwell, and try to remember to remove it again afterwards ;)09:58
azeemdeborphan is good for that09:58
persiaazeem: install/purge cycles are supposed to be clean, but aren't always :(  Be careful with that.09:58
azeempersia: well ok, but it's no different to installing any other build-depens, that can potentionally happen all the time09:59
persiaazeem: Depends on how you use sbuild.  I always use it in a snapshot LVM volume, which I discard after each build.09:59
minghuapersia: Can't you login into your LVM snapshot chroot then?10:01
persiaminghua: That's my workaround for now, but as I'm setup to discard chroots after use, I end up using debuild, which doesn't keep the logs in the same place.  I was hoping for something simple (and should probably be using a local archive)10:01
azeemyeah, I guess a local archive is the easiest then10:03
persiaWell, a PPA is easier, but the latency from here to there makes downloading annoying.10:03
minghuapersia: Make a PPA mirror! :-)10:04

habit_Hello. I am newbie. Can somebody teach me how to make packages (allready done with google, with ubuntu links). Just advice me how to solve some troubles.11:12
azeemhabit_: describe your troubles, and maybe somebody will be able to help you11:13
habit_I have done with dependencies, with dev packages needed for compilation, so, 'make' works fine and create binaries. 2nd step I have opened ubuntu packaging manual. At the begining as I understood I need to do 'dpgk -x source_tarball.tar.gz11:17
habit_Oups, mistake, dpkg-source -x11:18
persiahabit_: That's not quite how I'd start.11:18
persiaIf you have a working upstream that compiles from source, the first step is usually tar xzf upstream-tarball11:19
habit_But dpkg-source returns an error.11:19
azeemdpkg-source acts on Debian source archives, not random upstream tarballs11:19
persiaThen, move the upstream tarball to $(package)_$(version).orig.tar.gz and change the directory name to $(package)-$(version).  Create a "debian" directory in the new working directory, and add your control, copyright, and rules file.  Step down one directory, and create your copyright file with dch.11:21
persiaAt this point, `debuild -S -sa` should generate you a source package, which you could later use with dpkg-source -x11:21
habit_One question - i didn't understood what actually I must do with 'tar xzf'11:23
persiahabit_: Unpack the upstream tarball11:23
habit_Guys, I'm sorry for maybe very stupid questions, but I'm totally newbie with computers :) So 1. I must unpack sources, create there 'debian' directory with needed description files and then I must run @ that directory (root unpacked sources directory I mean) 'debuild -S -sa'11:26
persiahabit_: Yes.  You also have to make sure to rename the upstream tarball and unpack directory.11:27
habit_persia, the renaming is for later making "right-way tarball"? So I can just delete original tarball?11:28
habit_Now I have wired-0.6  wired_0.6.orig.tar.gz  wired_0.6.tar.gz directory and files.11:28
persiahabit_: No.  debuild expects you to be in a directory named $(package)-$(version), and may behave oddly if you are not.  It also expects the upstream tarball to be in the parent directory and named $(package)_$(version).orig.tar.gz, and will likely be unable to build a source package if it is missing (or may build a native package, but that isn't what you want).11:29
persiaAh.  Yes.  You want wired-0.6 and wired_0.6.orig.tar.gz.  You don't need wired_0.6.tar.gz11:30
habit_What files I must put into DEBIAN folder?11:31
persiaThat is part of the binary package, and will be generated from the contents of the debian/ directory in the source package.11:32
habit_Now I have wired_0.6  wired_0.6.orig.tar.gz . Wired_0.6 - is unpacked wired_0.6.orig.tar.gz, but with debian folder into them.11:33
persiahabit_: Right.  When you make the source, you will also get wired_0.6-0ubuntu1.diff.gz and wired_0.6-0ubuntu1.dsc.11:35
habit_Make the source mean 'cd wired_0.6 && debuild -S -sa'11:36
persiahabit_: You might want to run `dget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/10123377/wired_0.5.1%2Bdfsg2-0tsmithe3.dsc` to see previous packaging work on wired, and contact Toby to collaborate.11:37
persiahabit_: Yes.  That would be making the source.11:37
habit_One more question. What files must contain DEBIAN directory?11:37
habit_AH, sorry )11:38
habit_Just saw your link.11:38
persiahabit_: Note that wired is a fairly complex package, as it incorporates all of a library, an application, and some plugins.  You might want to try packaging something simpler to become familiar with the process first.11:39
habit_Actually I think I will not familiar never with it :)11:40
habit_As I think that it for "power users" and developers.11:40
habit_I am only normal user..11:40

Seveasffmpeg is insane16:55
jonnymindGood evening.16:56
the_belgainwell it looks from the debian/rules in ffmpeg that enabling / disabling the non-free codecs is just a case of setting/unsetting a single debian build flag ("risky") - ffmpeg has been packaged in such a way that it should be straightforwardish to recompile from souce16:56
DktrKranzhellboy195, back here.16:57
hellboy195DktrKranz: wb :)16:57
the_belgainso an ffmpeg-nonfree package would be identical to ffmpeg-free but with that debian build flag set?16:57
the_belgainthat still leaves the issue of keeping them in sync though - is there any mechanism to keep similar debian packages in sync with each other (a simple diff-based mechanism, in the same way that a package itself has the program source plus a diff against it)?16:58
crimsunyou'd also need to modify debian/control* so that the appropriate new binary package(s) and build-dependencies are set.16:58

the_belgaindebian/rules already adds the required dependencies to the weak-build-deps variable - at the moment it then just prints it out to screen, but presumably these can just be added to debian/control, yes17:01
the_belgainis the "risky" build string a standard string which gets set or unset, or just something someone's added here?17:02
DktrKranzhellboy195, in 1.99.16-8.1ubuntu3, we put "chmod -R 644 debian/tmp/usr/share/doc/$(package)/examples/*", which is basically what 1.99.16-10 does.17:02

Taggardgeser, pochu: I think I am competent enough to package software (probably), but I don't have coding experience other than Ruby or a little Python. Is coding experience required here, or are languaged like c++ or c required?20:59

Taggardjpatrick: (Yeah it does), Okay.21:00
geserLaserJock: we modified of 16% of the source packages? wow21:00
LaserJockthe mdt page is a bit messed up, I think something must've gone wrong in Fujitsu's script21:01
LaserJockit works fine for Science bugs, but Universe has 0 for packages where Sid == Hardy and that's not right :-)21:01
geserTaggard: coding experience isn't required. Often patches/fixes exist already, you just need to find them and seldom write them on your own. You just need to apply them on the package and test if it fixes it.21:02

persiaLaserJock: The list of packages unchanged between hardy & sid is intentionally removed from the ubuntuwire multidistrotools report: it's about 13,000 packages and would otherwise hide interesting information.23:36
LaserJockpersia: that's what I figured23:39
LaserJockpersia: I'm a little suspicious of the Not in sid: 784 packages23:40
persiaLaserJock: Why?  The new semi-automated removals script is doing a good job of keeping that down, and several people have been pushing packages to Debian.23:40
* Taggard is working his wya through the packaging guide.23:41
persiaTaggard: At this point in the development cycle, you'd likely do better to start working on bugs, rather than packaging new software.23:43
Taggardpersia: That generally involves coding though, doesn't it?23:43
persiaTaggard: About 30% of the time.23:44
pochupersia: he can do package updates too23:44
LaserJockpersia: I can't imagine there being more than 100 "not in sid:" packages23:44
persiaThere are lots of bugs that just need some adjustment to the packaging, some patch pulled from upstream, etc.23:44
Taggardpersia: Surely I do need to do the packaging tutorial to do that though?23:44
persiapochu: Deadline for that is also ~2 weeks away.  Better to do bugfixes.23:44
persiaLaserJock: REVU is a powerful force23:45
LaserJockpersia: ummm, I guess that's one way of putting it23:45
persiaTaggard: Depends how you learn.  The packaging tutorial won't hurt.23:45
LaserJocka horrendous drag was what came to mind23:45
Taggardpersia: (:23:46
persiaLaserJock: Why?  I think that now that we have UEHS, it's significantly less painful.  About half the packages report as up-to-date (I think).23:46
persiaLaserJock: Err.  Nevermind.  Seems there was less progress than I thought.  About 100 of the packages seem to be in good shape.23:47
LaserJockpersia: because most of that software should be maintained in Debian23:47
persiaLaserJock: Why?  A lot of our multiverse media stack is maintained in Debian-multimedia, which inflates the numbers some.  Also, I don't think it is a bad thing to add new software, as long as it is maintained.  As our tools improve, we should be better about this.23:49
LaserJockif that page is correct, we roughly 1/3 of the software we maintain is *not* in Debian23:49
LaserJockbah, kill the first "we"23:49
persiaRight.  1/3 of the stuff we touch is not in Debian.  I believe this to be a result of our documentation: we encourage new packaging.  We need to encourage bugfixing more.23:50
Taggarddpkg-buildpackage sure is picky about the changelog file23:50
persiaAlso, we need to encourage chasing UEHS during merge season: it should be clear by DIF.23:50
persiaTaggard: The dch tool is your best means of getting it formatted correctly.23:51
Taggardpersia: Probably, I don't knpw, but I'm just doing the manual section of the tutorial right now23:51
TaggardIf I continued doing this and made bugfixes would they actually go into the next release?23:52
LaserJockpersia: well, Multiverse isn't even included in the 78423:52
LaserJockMultiverse adds another 8423:52
persiaLaserJock: Still, from a policy viewpoint, which is better: killing off REVU and saying everything must go through Debian and DMO, or advocating UEHS review at the beginning of each cycle?23:54
persiaPersonally, I suspect the first would annoy Debian.23:54
geserTaggard: you mean hardy? yes23:55
Taggardgeser: That'd be a pretty rewarding feeling23:55
LaserJockpersia: well, I actually think a bit of both23:55
LaserJockI don't think we should totally shut down REVU, but 800+ packages is a lot for us if we have no packaging upstream23:57
geserTaggard: for the programming language part: I know C but since I started to contribute to Ubuntu I didn't do much C, more Makefiles or shell scripting and of course the packaging of the fixes23:57
persiaLaserJock: Utnubu complained that they wanted someone as a point of contact with whom to coordinate.  DCT keeps flailing due to differences in individual preferences of DDs.  Perhaps reinvigorating one or both of these might help?23:57
LaserJockwell, I think the new DM stuff may make it easier for people to maintain stuff in Debian23:58
LaserJockI mean, if people are *actually* going to maintain packages in Ubuntu and have no interest in Debian I think that's fine23:58
geserTaggard: it depends on with part you concentrate, there are enough parts where help is needed, e.g. catching unmet deps, fixing package which fail to build (FTBFS), looking out for important fixes in Debian unstable which need to be included in hardy, etc.23:58
LaserJockbut 1/3 of our package load just seems way too much23:59
