ScottK2Dear everyone: Please stop and think about if your change is appropriate to Debian before sending them a patch and a bug.01:02
taconesorry01:08
taconeis it still valid to propose software ?01:09
pochuYou can always propose. It may well not be accepted though :)01:09
taconeoh, I'd get very angry then :-D01:09
pochutacone: we are near Feature Freeze so it's likely a bit late...01:10
pochutacone: but is that new software or changing a default application?01:10
taconenew software01:10
taconemay sound stupid. a little game, which work like a charm with ubuntu01:10
taconethere's already a .deb on getdeb.net01:10
pochuYou have 10 days until Feature Freeze. After it your chances are low.01:11
pochutacone: is it Debian? How is it called?01:11
taconewhere should I propose ?01:11
taconeteewars01:11
pochuFile a needs-packaging bug in Launchpad, (and a RFP in Debian)01:11
taconeit's got nice reviews. and it's very simple and addicting. http://www.getdeb.net/app/TeeWars01:11
taconeshould I propose that in debian too ?01:12
TheMusotacone: If it gets into Debian first, its a lot easier to get into Ubuntu.01:12
pochuThe game looks nice indeed01:13
taconethemuso: it's already packaged01:13
taconethere's a .deb on getdeb.net.01:13
* pochu looks for bddebian to get it packaged in pkg-games :)01:13
pochuBut he isn't around...01:14
TheMusotacone: Yes, but that may need extra work before its accepted into Debian/Ubuntu.01:14
taconeI understand that.01:14
taconeI don't know how to file a need packaging bug. where do I specify 'need packaging' ? in the bug title ?01:15
vorianis a rules error or dependency error?01:16

ScottK2slangasek: Excellent responsiveness on sync requests today (sync done less than an hour after I request it).  Thanks.01:54
slangasekScottK2: nah, I think I need to get a start on those earlier in the day, so I can be /off/ that page by the time your sync requests come through ;)01:57
slangasek(looks like I won't get any new processing done today, for instance...)01:58
bddebianheh02:01
slangasekjdong: bug #175344: are you sure it was the intention of the original bug submitter to request a backport, as opposed to an SRU?  The bug title here comes from Kmos, who I think may have misapprehended the submitter's concerns02:06
ubotuLaunchpad bug 175344 in gutsy-backports "Please backport ntfs-3g 1.1120 from Hardy" [Undecided,In progress] https://launchpad.net/bugs/17534402:06
jdongslangasek: for the specific issue the submitter cited, yeah, it's SRU material .However, there's also new features (faster perforamcne, relatime support and default) that make the release worthwhile in any case02:08
ScottK2* twitch *02:08
ScottK2jdong: Then shouldn't the SRU be done first.02:08
jdongScottK2: I think they are independent matters that can be approached in any order02:09
zulicky02:09
slangasekyes, the order shouldn't matter02:09
jdongScottK2: if we SRU it, I'd also like to look at the 5+ other issues addressed in the versions between gutsy and hardy :)02:09
ScottK2jdong: OK.  My experience has been that once you do the backport the interest in working out the SRU goes WAY down.02:09
jdongScottK2: and before long, that's gonna be the same thing as just a backport :D02:09
slangasekbut I'm not sure if pushing a backport with this poor user's name in the changelog is the right thing either, since I don't think that's what he was requesting02:09
ScottK2Slap jdong's name on it then.02:10
jdongslangasek: Only my name gets put in the changelog, right?02:10
jdongScottK2: only if Canonical sends me an official Ubuntu scapegoat t-shirt :)02:10
ScottK2jdong: You've been wearing that one for years.02:10
slangasekjdong: uh, I've been following the same convention as for syncs, which is that the original bug submitter gets their LP id used in the backport02:10
jdongslangasek: interesting :)02:11
ScottK2slangasek: Normally for a backport I'd suggest you put whoever ack'ed it for backporters.02:11
slangasekif I should use you for all of them instead, that would certainly save on typing ;)02:11
jdongslangasek: the other archive admins previously have been following the convention that it goes to the approving backporter02:11
slangasekok, that's fair02:11
jdongslangasek: yeah I think that's a better way of doing it02:11
ScottK2slangasek: Your odds of having someone mind after problems go way up that way.02:11
jdongslangasek: often times backport requesters aren't of the technical skill level of a sync requester and would be less able to deal with the responsibility of the changed-by blame trail ;-)02:12
jdongslangasek: not to mention FTBFS mail should be directed at a backporter :)02:12
jdongnot that I'm all that interested wine didn't build on sparc256 or whatever :)02:12
slangasekright, let me go through and redo these... :)02:12
jdonghehe :)02:13
jdongwho's the ntfs-3g dude around here?02:13
ScottK2I like the stick the tag on jdong no matter who did it plan.02:13
ScottK2That'd be you, now.02:14
jdong:)02:14
jdongI was wondering if we should update to the latest upstream release before review02:14
jdongrelease*02:14
jdonghttp://ntfs-3g.org/releases.html their release notes always sound intriguing02:14
jdongthough that 2121 release sounds scarily intrusive02:14
ScottK2Well I'd be really careful about an ntfs-3g backport no matter which version it was.02:14
jdongScottK2: the main mode of failure for one would be some sort of FUSE API incompatibility blowup02:15
jdongcausing ntfs-3g to be inoperable02:15
jdonghistorically the QA from ntfs-3g upstream is quite superb02:15
zuleverytime i see ntfs it makes my skin crawl02:15
jdongI believe they have a test suite too :) (gasp!)02:15
blueyedHow can I search for packages which build-depend on a given package?02:17
StevenKblueyed: grep-dctrl02:18
jdongslangasek: so you're the poor unfortunate soul stuck with processing all those backports I triaged this weekend? :D02:21
slangasekyes02:22
* jdong gives slangasek half of this yummy cardboard^Wprotein bar he's snacking on :)02:22
slangaseknext time, take a Wednesday off to do those ;)02:22
jdonghaha :)02:22
pochuNight MOTUland!02:22
jdongask backports requestors. I don't do this often :D02:22
vorianhow does the debian/python policy apply to a package which is built with a configre/makefile?02:23
vorianthis is killing me :P02:23
blueyedStevenK: thanks, but I can't get it to do what I want.. would I have to grab some Contents file for this?02:24
blueyedI've tried e.g. "grep-available -F Build-Depends sun"02:24
StevenKContents lists what packages provide what file, that is hardly revelant02:25
StevenKblueyed: grep-dctrl -FBuild-Depends -sPackage sun < /var/lib/apt/lists/*Sources02:25
slangasekjdong: do you think 175344 should also have an SRU, then?  If so, would you mind nominating it for gutsy?  (TTBOMK I still can't nominate bugs without them immediately being accepted)02:28

sgbirchCan somebody plz help.  I am in the debian NM queue and am maintaining a couple of packages which are also in Ubuntu, xball and vobcopy.  My sponsors have uploaded new versions of both programs recently.  How can I get them uploaded to Ubuntu as well.  They are both in sid.02:40
ScottK2vorian: The build system doesn't affect policy.02:41
blueyedsgbirch: they are both in Ubuntu already. To get the latest release synced, you should file a sync request.02:42
blueyedsgbirch: I could file the sync request, if you want.02:42
ScottK2vorian: Either convince the upstream makefile to shove stuff into policy compliant locations or make your own setup.py, add it to the debian/dir and then use that.02:42
ScottK2blueyed: Better he files it and you ack it.02:43
blueyedok02:43
=== wolfger_ is now known as wolfger
sgbirchblueyed: This is actually my first ever contact with Ubuntu folks.  I normally hang out in the debian areas.  So I dont know how to file a sync request.  Can you point me to the docs so I can RTFM plz?02:45
ScottK2sgbirch: Do you use pbuilder for test bulding?02:45
blueyedsgbirch: docs are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SyncRequestProcess02:46
sgbirchblueyed: Oh ... I just noticed your offer to file the sync req.  Would you please, that would be great.  Two packages .... xball and vobcopy.02:46
blueyedI'm testing currently if they build and will do so then. Seems more straightforward, doesn't it, ScottK?02:46
ScottK2blueyed: Yes, but if you do it, he doesn't learn and can't do it himself the next time this comes up.  We want to help everyone learn that comes here.02:47
sgbirchScottK2: No, I use a clean VM loaded with sid02:47
mruizhi all02:48
ScottK2sgbirch: OK.  You might want to consider setting up an Ubuntu Hardy VM so you can test build on our toolchain.  It'd make it more credible/less work for us if you've already done the test build when you come ask.02:49
mruizI'm preparing a new version for mnemosyne but upstream packages it as <file>-<version>.tgz. Should I repackage it ?02:50
ScottK2mruiz: Just rename it.  That's not repackaging.02:51
ScottK2mruiz: You have to rename .tar.gz to .orig.tar.gz in any case.02:51
sgbirchScottK2: OK .. I am happy to do that.  Although I am working towards DD I run Ubuntu on all my machines :-)  I really want the two packages I currently maintain and future packages to always go into debian and ubuntu.  So the Ubuntu learning curve is important to me.02:52
ScottK2Excellent.02:52
ScottK2sgbirch: I'm the same.  I run Ubuntu, but am in NM.02:52
sgbirchScottK2: Very cool.02:53
mruizScottK2, thanks... I'm asking as tgz is different to tar.gz ;-) . I read that tar.bz2 should be processed in a different way02:53
ScottK2sgbirch: Welcome.  You might also want to consider doing packaging work in Ubuntu and maybe becomine a MOTU.02:53
ScottK2mruiz: I missed the bz2 part.  Yes.  You need to reroll that.02:53
mruiz:-)02:53
sgbirchScottK2: Yes ... that is very much on my mind, Id like to do that.  I actually do packaging professionally in my day job ... but that doesn't mean I am an expert by any means :-)02:54
ion_A tar.bz2 only needs to be recompressed, not repackaged entirely.02:54

tonyyarussoHi, I have two lintian warnings I would like explained to me - "W: kompozer source: desktop-file-but-no-dh_desktop-call" and "W: kompozer source: out-of-date-standards-version 3.7.2 (current is 3.7.3)".  Are these things I need to worry about?04:57
firestormx37hello, i would like to get involved and help with bugs or packaging, but i am not sure where to start.  I have been reading all the getting started and faq pages, but I need help finding something small and easy to start with.  Can anyone help me out?04:59
StevenKtonyyarusso: The first means you are installing a .desktop file and don't call dh_desktop in your rules file04:59
StevenKtonyyarusso: The second you can update if you're worried about the warning04:59
tonyyarussoStevenK: What changes are there in the standards version that I would need to update?04:59
StevenKtonyyarusso: There is a checklist installed by the debian-policy package05:00
tonyyarussoStevenK: Okay, I'll look for that.05:00
tonyyarussodesktop thing first..05:00
tonyyarussoStevenK: Would that go in install: build or binary-indep: build install?05:03
StevenKtonyyarusso: In binary-indep05:05
StevenKtonyyarusso: The first word there is the target name itself, the others are what that target depends on.05:06
tonyyarussoStevenK: I still don't quite understand that.05:06
StevenKtonyyarusso: binary-indep is a Makefile target, which requires that the targets build and install are up to date before it runs05:07
tonyyarussook05:07
tonyyarussoOkay, the only warning I have now from lintian is "W: kompozer source: not-binnmuable-all-depends-any kompozer-dev -> kompozer"05:15
tonyyarussoWhat's binnmuable mean?05:17
StevenKAble to be binary-only NMU'd, a Debian-ism05:17
StevenKMeans you don't use (>= ${binary:Depends}) in kompozer-dev's Depends line.05:18
tonyyarussoYeah, I was using Depends: kompozer (= ${binary:Version})05:18
StevenKOh, that should be okay05:19
StevenKActually, >=05:19
StevenKbinary:Depends is my brain going funny05:19
tonyyarussothe lintian notes suggest Depends: kompozer (>= ${source:Version})05:20

ScottK2tonyyarusso: Why is an upgrade on REVU?06:17
* ScottK2 just looked at two packages and found copyright problems in both. Urgh.06:17
TheMusoScottK2: Perhaps we should have something about people getting copyright checked out before submitting a package...06:18
ScottK2TheMuso: I think running grep -ir copyright * over the package should definitely be mentioned.  These packages had all been reviewed several time before too, so MOTUs aren't looking hard enough either.06:19

tonyyarussoSince ScottK2 went to bed, anyone care to tell me what the proper process for getting upgrades approved and uploaded is?06:54
superm1tonyyarusso, generally attaching to a bug and subscribing u-u-s06:55
superm1tonyyarusso, but after FF, new versions will need to go through motu-release06:56
superm1bug fixes can still be attached to a bug though06:56
tonyyarussosuperm1: Ah, all right.  And if I do it that way, it should probably be a debdiff rather than the full thing, right?06:57
superm1tonyyarusso, well all depends on the situation06:57
superm1and the patching scheme used for the package06:57
superm1previously interdiffs were the way to go06:57
superm1if all of the patching is constrained to the debian/ directory06:57
tonyyarussosuperm1: It was just packaging info updates - debian/control, debian/rules, and debian/changelog I think are all that changed.06:57
superm1the more ideal route is to link to the new archive, and then attach a diff of the two debian/ directories06:57
superm1or even better, use a get-orig-source rule to build the archive needed for the .orig.tar.gz06:58
superm1but if you debdiff two new versions alltogether, it will be a very large diff usually06:58
superm1understand?06:59
tonyyarussoSorry, no...06:59
superm1okay so lets say you've got hello-world-v1 and hello-world-v206:59
tonyyarussookay, good so far :)06:59
superm1between the two versions, there are tons of upstream changes06:59
superm1they decided that they wanted to add this wacky GUI and stuff06:59
tonyyarussohehe07:00
superm1so you go and package up the new version based on the old one's packaging07:00
superm1and you're all said and done07:00
superm1so you debdiff the two dsc's, and its a 10 meg debdiff07:00
superm1well that would be silly to upload07:00
superm1your changes were just in the debian directory07:00
superm1and the diff for your changes is only like 15k07:01
tonyyarussoOkay, still following.07:01
superm1so instead, in that case you can just do a diff between the old debian directory and new debian directory07:01
superm1and upload that diff instead07:01
superm1just in your comments on the bug explain that its a diff of the debian directories, and provide a link where someone grab hello-world-v207:01
tonyyarussoI wasn't aware diff operated on directories - or do you do it file by file?07:02
superm1you can do it recursively07:02
tonyyarussoah07:02
superm1the switches are something like -urN07:02
superm1unified recursive something something07:02
tonyyarussonow, as far as this link, which file precisely is it going to?  Which portion is "interesting" to a reviewer?07:02
superm1well it wouldnt be for review07:02
superm1it would be for a new version07:03
superm1so if its say a merge from debian07:03
superm1and they have that new version, just say to grab the .orig.tar.gz from there07:03
superm1if on a website say to grab it from there07:03
superm1the most ideal case though, you can write a rule in debian/rules that will grab the right file for the person07:03
superm1if its not already present07:03
tonyyarussoNow, in my particular case today, the .orig.tar.gz is completely unchanged.  Do I even need a link then?07:04
superm1now in that case you can just use a debdiff07:04
tonyyarussoI wish I had that kind of debian/rules fu, but sadly, I simply don't (yet)07:04
superm1because you're not including any new .orig.tar.gz07:04
superm1so no new upstream changes07:04
dholbach(-N treats non-existant files as empty in the 'old' directory)07:04
tonyyarussoSo debdiff makes sense now, but I should know all this other stuff for later.07:04
superm1well that's just one type of case, but yeah its a good idea to understand it07:05
superm1there are more complex cases depending upon how the package adopted a patching system which you might come across some day07:05
superm1like mplayer for example07:06
* tonyyarusso installs a 1TB drive in his brain for this...07:06
superm1be careful with that one, its fun07:06
tonyyarussoI'm told I should start using quilt for my package, if I'm brave someday07:06
tonyyarusso(it's a mozilla thing)07:06
superm1everyone has their preferences on patching systems, you'll eventually learn which ones are easier for you to work with07:07
superm1after seeing how they operate07:07
superm1dholbach, ah.  i've wondered about that07:09
superm1but never looked at the man page :)07:09
LucidFoxtonyyarusso> I prefer simple-patchsys for CDBS packages and dpatch for plain debhelper packages.07:09
tonyyarussoSo, if I'm going to create a bug whose sole purpose is the be the carrier of this diff, should I bother trying to cite it in changelog or does it not matter?07:09
LucidFoxtonyyarusso> yes, mention it in the changelog07:09
tonyyarussookay07:10

tonyyarussoLucidFox: wrt the changelog, I have 3 things that I did (all quite minor).  How would you suggest I write that, with the bug #?07:11
LucidFox* Fixed such-and-such issue (LP: #xxx)07:12
tonyyarussoI meant as in should I list the same LP bug three times?07:12
LucidFoxno, once is sufficient07:12
tonyyarussookay07:12
LucidFoxits sole purpose is to let the upload automatically close the bug07:13
tonyyarussoOh, that's nifty.07:13
LucidFoxAs for patches, does the package use CDBS?07:14
tonyyarussoNo.  (not yet at least)07:15
LucidFoxAh, that's a shame. The CDBS simple-patchsys is not that in name only, it's really the simplest patch system out there.07:17
superm1the only thing i don't like about the simple-patchsys is that all patches in that directory are "automatically" applied.07:18
superm1so if you want to turn off one07:18
LucidFoxAh, indeed.07:18
superm1even temporarily you gotta move it out of the directory07:19
crimsunwhew, well there went a few hours of testing.07:19
* crimsun uploads and drags off to sleep07:19
LucidFoxsuperm1> but doesn't it only apply files with the .diff and .patch extensions?07:19
superm1LucidFox, i think so, but again, you gotta rename it then07:20
superm1which makes the diff's huge07:20
LucidFox(granted, that won't help if you want to just minimize the delta, which is achieved by removing just one line with dpatch)07:20
superm1exactly07:20
superm1but be it as it may, easy to use otherwise07:21
tonyyarussoAny preferences for what I should name a debdiff?07:22
LucidFoxI name it the same as the dsc/diff.gz, but with the .debdiff extension07:23
LucidFoxpackage_version-XubuntuY.debdiff07:24
tonyyarussomakes sense07:24
tonyyarussoIn LP, there's the checkbox for "this attachment is a patch" - does that include debdiffs, in the sense more like "this attachment has code to fix it"?07:26

superm1https://edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/hardy/+queue07:48
superm1the first time a binary is introduced to the archive, it sits there07:49
superm1until an archive admin acks it07:49
superm1if this was already in the archive, then just give it some time to propagate the mirrors07:49
TheMusoPackages that are already in the archive that introduce new binaries also sit in binary new.07:50

slytherinpersia: geser: We have to make a decision, 1) fix 2.2.x our way and have icedtea as dependency  2) sync debian version for now to fix FTBFS and then apply our DTD patch and use icedtea as build dep later.11:14
persiaslytherin: And 3) Do nothing now, and then apply some FTBFS fix and use icedtea as build-dep later.  Why is 2.3 better?11:16

geseras long as we fix the FTBFS I don't have a preference which way to go11:21
persiaThere's a heap of API changes, according to http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/lucene/java/tags/lucene_2_3_0/CHANGES.txt.  Might be a lot of transition work to get it in for hardy.11:21
geserthen it's probably better to fix 2.211:22
persiaOn the other hand, lots of bugfixes, and it's supposed to be faster.11:22
slytherinpersia: what transition are you talking about?11:22
persiaslytherin: lucene2 2.2 -> 2.3.  API changes often means someone has to do extensive testing and porting.  Best to push these pre-DIF, unless there is some external driver pushing the update.11:23

persiaHighNo: You're missing the point.11:28
persiaA "source" package is in a format that can be built with debuild, sbuild, pbuilder, etc.11:28
persiaA "binary" package is in a format that is ready for installation on a target machine.11:28
geserpersia: with which version of lucene2 are the packages in REVU tested? we can fix 2.2 if it helps the packages in REVU to get into the archive11:29
persiaFor python packages, "source" packages usually have all the development docs, and a layout that makes it easy for people to hack on them.  "binary" packages then put all the necessary .py files to run in the right directories to be byte-compiled at installation time.11:29
persiageser: netbeans expects 2.2.  I haven't been following the others as closely.11:30

cyberixDoes the "Ready for upload" status guarantee that my package will be built and get into Hardy before freeze?12:25
persiacyberix: No.  It needs to be in the NEW queue.12:25
persiaAnd even if it is there, it doesn't guarantee it will be built and distributed pre-freeze, only pre-release.12:26
cyberixI'm trying to make sure everything goes ok. Mainly, I don't want the package to be left out just because someone forgot to put it forward.12:27
persiaThings entering the NEW queue post-freeze need special exceptions to be included in the release.12:27

sistpoty|worktheseinfeld: just saw your comments on revu... linda is a little bit outdated, so you can ignore the output regarding standards-version13:00
theseinfeldok sistpoty13:00

\shmoins13:11
martossfiling a bug with dsc, and diff?13:11
yamalScottK: regarding your review of sabnzbdplus: would it be best to just remove only that template (or even just that one file), or to simply leave all templates out that are not included in the package anyway?13:12
geserHi \sh13:12
persiamartoss: Just the diff.gz.  The .dsc can be reconstructed by the sponsor.13:12
martossok13:13
ScottKyamal: Just that one file.  It was the only one that was licensed differently (unless of course you find more that I missed).13:13
persiayamal: Also note that the use of shortened names or other aliases for Maintainer or changelog entries is very much not preferred.  Perhaps you could collaborate with someone if you really need to avoid exposing your name?13:15
yamalThough it might make sense to just remove a potential problem by getting rid of all template interfaces that aren't getting included in the package anyway13:16
yamalScottK: but of course I'm not a licesing compatibilty expert13:16
ScottKyamal: Does the template not get installed in the binary package (I didn't have time for a full review last night)?13:18
=== imbrandon is now known as imbrandon_
yamalScottK: no, only the (completely gpl-licensed) Default one does.13:18
yamalI already figured the other ones would be a licensing minefield13:18
ScottKpersia: There's one template file with Apache licensing.  If it doesn't get included in the binary, it's probably OK.  What do you think?13:19
ScottKMaybe it doesn't need repacking then.13:19
persiaAs long as the file includes the proper licensing internally, and is not included in the binary package, seems OK to me.  I'd still encourage mention in debian/copyright.13:19
ScottKDefinitely needs mention, but it needn't be repacked then.13:20
ScottKyamal: Consider my comment modified to add the copyright and license info to debian/copyright.13:21
persiaGenerally, repacking only makes sense to me if the source cannot be distributed.  As long as the binaries are constructed to be distributable, mixed-license source oughtn't be a problem (although it makes writing debian/copyright annoying and painful)13:22
persia(Note that the complete lack of copyright or licensing attribution counts as "source cannot be distributed")13:23
persiaErr.  "copyright attribution or licensing"13:23
yamalScottK/persia: just a mention of this file, or its complete license and such (for the stuff that isn't included in the package anyway)? In that case just repacking is much easier13:23
ScottKyamal: copyright and complete license as it's distributed with the source package.  Please don't repack.  You should only repack when there isn't a reasonable alternative (which there is in this case).13:25
* yamal cries13:25
ScottKThe concern I had that lead to my original comment was you can't link Apache and GPL licensed code.  Not an issue in this case.13:25
persiayamal: repacking means that we have to trust you.  For that, you'd have to come visit me for a couple weeks, at a minimum.  not repacking is likely easier than that :)13:25
ScottKyamal: I think it's just the one file that had the different license.  All license's must be mentioned, but minor copyright holders can be omitted.13:26
yamalpersia: all you'd have to trust is 3 extra lines in get-orig-source ;)13:27
yamalScottK: these extra templates have lots of different licenses and copyright holders I think13:28
persiayamal: Maybe, but still, it breaks the md5sum :(13:28
ScottKyamal: Maybe.  The google one was the one that lept out at me.13:28
yamalpersia: upstream releases a zip file, it's allready modified anyway13:28
ScottKyamal: The thing I did to find this is run grep -ir copyright * in the source package.  Try that in the template dir and see how much comes up.  As long as the licenses aren't different, I don't think you need to mention them.13:29
* persia didn't have enough time during REVU day, and has just advocated a few things. Second advocates or rejections welcome.13:34
yamalsmpl/templates/static/MochiKit/Sortable.js isn't any good either. It's copyright header tells the reader to find the full license in another file that isn't there13:34
yamalScottK: that would be undistributable, woudln't it? ^^^13:34
ScottKyamal: It would be.  That needs to be removed.13:35

juliankScottK: GPL-2+ and Apache License 2.0 can be linked, as the GPL code can be used under the GPL 3. (Does not apply to GPL 2 only code)13:39
ScottKjuliank: Agreed.  I didn't check an entire GPL package to make sure it was all GPL 2+.13:40
ScottKFor one little template file. ...13:40
ScottKIt's not installed anyway, so it turns out to be a moot point.13:40
persia(especially one that isn't used in the build)13:40
=== LifeHacker is now known as tuxmaniac
ScottKpersia: New lintian is in Gutsy backports now, so all the whining should be synchronized.13:47
persiaScottK2: Great.  Next cycle, let's do that sometime prior to the completion of the last REVU Day :)13:50
* persia is amus3d by the timing, but agrees it will significantly improve policy compliance analysis for the next 11 weeks13:50
yamalis there a _the_ BSD License? thought there was several different licenses using that name?13:51
persiayamal: There is a "The BSD License".  You can find a copy in /usr/share/common-licenses/BSD.  It should not be used except by the Regents of the University of California, although there are many derivatives.  For new work, I'd recommend using ISC over BSD.13:52
vorianthanks for the ack ScottK :)13:52
vorianand being patient with me13:52
ScottKvorian: No problem.  Thank you for contributing.13:53
yamalpersia: it's about files in 'plotkit'. the files all refer to their projects website (http://www.liquidx.net/plotkit/) for the license13:56
yamalbut all it says there is "PlotKit is copyright (c) 2006 Alastair Tse. Licensed under the BSD License". Seems dangerous to just assume that equals the BSD license in /usr/share/...?13:57
ScottKA full copy of the license MUST be included in the package, so you either have to add the license or remove the files.  Since the BSD license says copyright University of California Regents and there is more than one BSD license, there's no way to know what they want by that.13:58

effie_jayxbut it complains about unmet build dependencies. is it necesary then to install them before a pacakge upgrade... isn't there another way?14:17
slytherineffie_jayx: unmet dependency means that your machine doesn't have some of the packages needed for building. :-)14:20
effie_jayxslytherin,  I understand. but I can't use something like pbuilder to keep all those dependencies separate from my actual sistem?14:21

slytherineffie_jayx: are you using hardy at present?14:22
effie_jayxslytherin,  not on this machine14:22

effie_jayxslytherin,  I must have build dependencies. I got it14:24
ScottKeffie_jayx: You can use pbuilder login to have a hardy chroot you can do stuff in.14:28
effie_jayxScottK,  but I would need to install the dev tools14:33
ScottKYes, but in the chroot, so it won't affect your system.14:33

slytherinAce_NoOne: just kidding. you may want to confirm some bugs if you are using hardy or review some documentation14:54
Ace_NoOneokay, sounds good - is there a to-do list? I suppose there is a ticket system for development-related issues14:55

slytherinAce_NoOne: #ubuntu-doc is appropriate channel for asking14:58
Ace_NoOneok slytherin, cheers for now14:59
slytherinis it a policy that unless 'all' the binary packages related to a source package don't get accepted in 'New' queue, they won't show up on mirrors? I am waiting for latest linux-image-powerpc to fix a booting issue but looks like linux-image-lpia is still waiting for acceptance which is causing other binaries not being uploaded to mirrors.15:02

mathiazsoren: if Conflicts and Replaces are used at the same time, it means that the old package should be removed.16:56
mathiazsoren: in our case, we just want mysql-server to override mysqld.8 from mysql-doc-5.016:57
nxvldholbach: what is what you are asking for? to do the merge or to prepare amule for that merge?16:57
sorenmathiaz: Well, Replaces certainly allows mysql-server-5.0 to overwrite the file.16:58
sorenmathiaz: There's plenty of precedent for doing what I'm suggesting, but I must admit, I can't seem to come up with a really good explanation why the conflict needs to be set.17:03
sorenmathiaz: Well...17:04
mathiazsoren: using Conflicts makes sure that the old version of the package is not installed anymore.17:04
ScottKWhich would seem appropriate in this case.17:04
sorenmathiaz: Yeah.. And while it's not *strictly* necessary, you probably want them to be in sync.17:04
mathiazsoren: right. At the same time, there is a new package for mysql-doc-5.0 which works well with mysql-server-5.017:05
mathiazsoren: so the two packages should be upgraded correctly.17:05
mathiazsoren: I wonder what happens if the restricted repository has been disabled, and Conlicts is not used.17:06
sorenmathiaz: Then it just overwrites the file from the doc package.17:06
mathiazsoren: then the old version mysql-doc-5.0 wouldn't be upgraded and would stay installed.17:06
sorenRight.17:06
mathiazsoren: in this case it wouldn't be a problem.17:07
mathiazsoren: with a Conflicts, mysql-doc.5.0 would be removed.17:07
mathiazsoren: which is not something that would be expected.17:07
sorenThat's true.17:08
sorenThis is quite a bit of a special case as the file is not just moving between packages, but between components.17:08
Nightroseamarillion: yes I know a few who will - why?17:09
tjaaltonsuperm1: ooh, project-x! :)17:10
superm1tjaalton, yeah we needed it for mytharchive in trunk, but i think everyone wins with that one :)17:10
mathiazsoren: so what about using Replaces only and test the upgrade to see if it has the expected outcome ?17:11
tjaaltonsuperm1: indeed, I'm happy now that I upgraded my vdr box to hardy :)17:11
tjaaltonso I can test that17:11
sorenmathiaz: Sounds good.17:11
superm1tjaalton, i dont think in its current form it forces you to use the iced tea jre, so please file bugs related to that if they crop up17:11
sorenmathiaz: Replaces should be sufficient to kill the bug.17:12

Riddellmok0: ping17:25
mok0Riddell: pong17:25
Riddellmok0: what type of data is wvs1.dat?17:25
mok0Riddell: What do you mean?17:26
Riddellmok0: well specifically is it a preferred modifyable form17:26
Riddellthis is in xtide-wvs1-data-2002021917:26
mok0Riddell: I don't think it's easily modifiable17:27
Riddellmok0: ok, multiverse it is then17:27
mok0Riddell: The data is public domain17:27
Riddellmok0: right, but it it's not in source form then it's non-free17:28
mok0Riddell: how do you define "source form"?17:28
Riddellmok0: "preferred modifiable form"17:29
* mok0 googles 17:29
mok0... and finds nothing of interest...17:30
Riddellif it's the format that's used when editing and modifing the data that's source, if it's just a binary blob without source then it's non-free17:30
Riddellwhich is fine, just means it goes into multiverse17:30
mok0Riddell: ok, whatever. It's just the non-free part... it's actually not so17:31
Riddellwithout source, it's non free17:31
Riddellfreedom is about more than just being able to copy it17:31
mok0Riddell: OK.17:31
mok0Riddell: you can modify it using a program that reads/writes the data file. I don't see why you'd want to modify the world's shorelines though :-)17:32
mok0Riddell: I mean, it's _legal_ to modify it17:33
sorenmok0: Well, if it's modifiable with a particular program, that sounds like it actually *is* in its preferred modifiable form.17:36
amarillionNightrose, well I thought it'd be cool to meet up with the MOTU crowd17:37
sorenmok0: The question is: Does someone, somewhere have a "source file" of some sort that is used to generate that file or would anyone who wanted to edit that file prefer to edit that file directly (with whatever program)?17:37
mok0soren: I just found something17:38
mok0You can get the data in ascii format17:38
Nightroseamarillion: come to R!ddel´s packaging session then ;-)17:38
mok0http://rimmer.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/coast/getcoast.html17:38
amarillionah cool, I didn't see that in the schedule17:39
amarillionyet17:39
amarillionI'll be there :)17:39
sorenmok0: It's like.. If you have a package that has some pre-rendered graphics in it, but you don't have the povray source (or whatever it's made in), but you have the graphics itself, then even though you can edit the images directly with the gimp or whatever, the "preferred modifiable form" is the povray source.17:39
mok0soren: Ok, makes sense.17:40
mok0soren: I think Riddell went off  to upload the data to multiverse...17:40
sorenRiddell: Are you reading this?17:41
ScottKmok0: Well if you can add the ascii form to a updated package, then it can be moved.17:41
mok0ScottK: That would be a bit silly17:41
ScottKWhy?17:42
sorenmok0: The question you need to ask yourself is:17:42
ScottKWhat is the preferred form to edit the data?17:42
mok0ScottK: Because -- users would not need it, really.17:42
sorenIf you wanted to edit those data, would you be making changes directly to that file with whatever program is needed to do so, or would you prefer to edit it somewhere else and then generate that file.17:42
ScottKmok0: But that's nothing to do with the point.17:42
sorenIf the former, then everything is good. It doesn't have to be clear text if that's not the preferred form for editing it.17:43
mok0ScottK: Well, we'd be having a package with data that nobody cares about17:43
Riddellmok0: yes, I accepted into multiverse17:43
mok0Riddell: thx17:43
Riddellsoren: it would still need a way to compile one into the other17:43
sorenRiddell: Yes.17:43
sorenRiddell: I was just getting to that bit :)17:43
mok0Riddell: the ascii source is available, it even has instructions on how to use it in matlab17:44
sorenIt wouldn't help to just *also* ship the ASCII version if it's not what the program uses.17:44
mok0soren: exactly. you need some way to "compile" it17:44
sorenPrecisely.17:44
sorenOtherwise, it's not really the preferred modifiable form.17:45
sorenIt just looks like it to the untrained eye.17:45
soren"Hey, it's ASCII. It must be what I'm supposed to edit."17:45
Riddellsuggesting that users would not need source code is unlikely to go down well in a free software project17:45
sorenGIF's can be turned into postscript, which is ASCII, but I'd sure prefer to edit GIF's to edit the resulting postscript.17:45
mok0Riddell: Until global warming really gets going, I doubt that anyone would want to edit the shoreline data :-)17:46
sorenmok0: They might.17:46
sorenmok0: For experimenting or whatever.17:46
mok0I settle for non-free :-)17:47
mok0those 2 people can get the data in ascii form from the web17:47
mok0Riddell: Are Jave class files "non-free"??17:48
mok0Java17:48
Riddellmok0: yes of course17:48
mok0Riddell: you can generate the .java code from them with a program17:49
sorenmok0: If you wanted to edit them, any sane person would prefer to edit the .java file.17:49
Riddellif you have the source then that's fine17:49
sorenmok0: That's all that counts.17:49
LucidFoxmok0> You can generate source code from .NET assemblies as well17:49
Riddell..and the build system and a free compiler17:49
LucidFoxthat doesn't make them free17:49
sorenthat's completely beside the point.17:49
mok0so, what matters is the _format_?17:50
sorenYEs.17:50
sorenI can disassemble the linux kernel, too, and fiddle around with a hex editor, but I'd by far prefer to edit the C source code.17:50
mok0soren: that's not the same thing as with java, though17:51
mok0soren: I think all that's lost in the disassembly of .class files is the comments17:51
sorenmok0: Not completely, but for the sake of this argument, the analogy is sound.17:51
mok0soren: your povray example was different, though17:52
sorenI realise.17:52
sorenWhat matters is the format any sane person would prefer to work with.17:52
mok0soren: I understand.17:53
mok0But you still have the _freedom_ to reformat and edit17:53
sorenI've come across people who get a kick out of editing java byte code. They're clearly insane and not interesting in this discussion :)17:54
* soren -> cook dinner17:54
mok0soren: you don't need to. you can disassemle byte code into perfectly understandable java source code17:54
mok0assemble17:54
mok0Even has the same variable names17:55
mok0soren, btw, the mac_addr trick solved my kvm problems completely! We have now deployed a couple of virtual servers in testing for production!17:59

mruizfor new upstream versions, should I attach to the bug the interdiff only?18:40

mruizthanks mok0 ... I'll do it18:43

ScottKBTW, you don't have to be an actual MOTU to come to the meetings and discuss.18:43
mruizScottK, I forgot it :-(18:44
mok0ScottK: xtide-data also contains binary data, so cf. discussion above, it should be moved to multiverse18:45
mok0... and then it would make sense to move xtide there as well18:46
ScottKWhich is then a discussion point for you with upstream about wouldn't they like it to be Free so more people could use it.18:46
ScottKNo18:46
ScottKNot unless it's a hard dependency18:46
mok0ScottK: Let me check18:46
mok0ScottK: but xtide is useless without the data18:46
ScottKHmm.18:46
ScottKNote sure.18:47
ScottKCan the data be gotten elsewhere?18:47
mok0I don't know off-hand18:47
ScottK2I'm not sure what the right answer is then.18:48
ScottK2I'd ask Riddell.18:48
jdongwell.. you can'18:49
jdongerr18:49
mok0ScottK; he's off at the moment18:49
jdongyou can't depend on the multiverse -data package anyway, right?18:49
jdongunless you want to just "make up" a virtual package18:49
jdongwhich sounds shady18:49
mok0xtide recommends: xtide-data18:50
jdongwell a recommends is fine18:50
jdongdoes the program do anything at all without its -data?18:50
mok0jdong: no, not really18:50
jdong:-/18:50
mok0jdong: it doesn't crash18:50
jdongtechnically I think the "right answer" is the engine goes in universe and the data goes in multiverse18:50
jdongbut it's kinda silly to me until there's actually a free -data alternative18:51
mok0jdong: well, that's the consequence of the rules18:51
mok0jdong: the data _is_ free, it18:51
mok0is in the public domain18:51
jdongthen why does it go into multiverse?18:51
mok0jdong: but it is in binary form18:51
jdongwell... what kind of data are we talking about?18:51
mok0jdong: "non-preferred modifiable format"18:52
jdonglike images or sounds?18:52
mok0jdong: some of it is "harmonics data"18:52
mok0the program uses it to predict the tide at any given time18:52
jdongwell ScottK2 is right, this seems like something to talk to an archive admin about18:52
mok0jdong: I did18:53
mok0jdong: I packaged the shore-line data, that shows a map of the world on xtide's display, and it must go in multiverse because it is binary18:54
mok0jdong: I then discovered, that xtide-data, which is in universe, also contains binary data.18:54
mok0jdong: so, consequently, it should be moved as well18:54
ScottK2jdong: I'm testing for a postgresql 8.3 backport now.  So far Gutsy and Feisty look good.18:55

mruizthanks ScottK2 ... then firefox as depends should be replaced by firefox320:15
vemondoes it make sense to create a get-orig-source rule (when there is a need to repack) which uses uscan to get the source?20:16
vemonthat feels a little stupid if what's wanted is really the original source (and not the newest) for the package20:16
cbx33fdoving, ??20:16
vemonrefering to: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide/Examples/ChangingTheOrigTarball20:17
fdovingcbx33: give debuild what it expects, (expected memaker_0.1.1.orig.tar.gz or memaker-themes-0.1.1-0ubuntu1.orig)20:17
cbx33ko20:17
cbx33it can't have the former20:17
cbx33that's in use20:17

ScottK2mruiz: Not replaced.  I'd do firefox-3.0 | firefox20:18

ScottK2As I understand it firefox will still be in Universe20:18
cbx33as I already have a memaker_0.9.4.orig.tar.gz20:18
fdovingcbx33: you should use the same orig.tar.gz, then only thing that changes once you add your 0ubuntu1 changes, is the .diff.gz20:18
cbx33well......the themes pacakge is going to be totally seperate20:18
cbx33at the mo it's not going into univers20:19
cbx33just into a ppa20:19
fdovingif it's going to be totaly separate you need to edit debian/control and set the source name to something new, memaker is taken.20:19
fdovingmemaker-themes20:19
fdovingfor example.20:19
cbx33^^^ I did20:19
cbx33Source: memaker-themes20:20
fdovingthen debuild should expect memaker-themes_0.1.1.orig.tar.gz20:20
cbx33yeh20:20
cbx33but it doesn't20:20
cbx33the only thing that could be causing the problem is the directory it's in20:21
cbx33memaker-themes-0.1.1-0ubuntu120:21
cbx33is that wrong?20:21
fdovingno. that doesn't really matter.20:22

* RainCT would be happy if someone reviewed http://rainct.homelinux.net/openbox_3.4.6-0ubuntu1.dsc :)20:46
ScottK2RainCT: Please put it on REVU if you want it reviewed.20:48
jpatrickRainCT: that's twice today20:48
mruizhahaha20:59
* RainCT decides he will just upload it21:00
dcorderohi21:01
RainCTHi dcordero21:01
dcorderoi am fully lost with merging process pfff21:02
RainCTdcordero: what's the problem?21:02
dcorderoi have read 4 times the wiki about merging :)21:02
dcorderomy packages it isn't on Mom21:02
RainCTheh21:02
RainCTthe MoM time is over (until Hardy+1's cycle starts)21:03
dcorderoso, i cant merge?21:03
RainCTyou can, just without MoM (well, or you might be able to still use it, but it isn't needed anyway)21:04
dcorderoand his husband Dad dead too?21:05
RainCTto do a merge basically you just need to dget the source from Debian that you want to merge (you'll find a link to the .dsc in packages.debian.org), unextract it (dpkg-source -x *.dsc)21:05
dcorderograb-merge only do that?21:06
mok0dcordero: http://dad.dunnewind.net/universe.php21:06
mok0ubotu, ! dad21:07
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about dad - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi21:07
mok0ubotu, ! merge21:07
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about merge - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi21:07
dcorderomok0, i know dad21:07
mok0dcordero: then why don't you just use the grab-merge.sh tool that's there?21:08
RainCTthen get the source from Ubuntu too, copy the text from Ubuntu's changelog into Debian's (only leave the new entries at the top but replace all others)21:08
RainCT(well, or get the changelog from packages.ubuntu.com if you don't need Ubuntu's source)21:09
mok0RainCT:  grab-merge gets all that stuff in 1 go21:09
RainCTand then apply the changes you want to Debian's source, add a changelog entry and ready21:09
dcorderomok0, my package dont appear on Dad, that is the problem21:09
RainCTmok0: yes, but I don't like it :P21:09
mok0Ah, you guys!! :-P21:10
RainCTas it modifies the unextracted source, I always delete it an unextract again (just keeping the changelog) :P21:10
RainCTbut on this case dcordero said that the package isn't on DaD anyway21:10
dcorderoRainCT, ok i understood it's exactly how i did it, but i deleted the ubuntu changelog and used debian changelog only21:11
gilirhi, there is some admin of REVU around here ?21:12
RainCTdcordero: ok, then you just need to replace the changelog with Ubuntu's + new entries in Debian's, so that the entries that are only in Ubuntu's changelog are conserved21:12
dcorderoand then the debdiff between dsc from debian and the new dsc or between the old dsc from ubuntu and the new dsc generated?21:13
mruizbye all21:13
RainCTdcordero: between the 'old' Debian and your new one21:13
dcorderook, i understand now, thanks21:14
RainCTnp :)21:14
RainCTmok0: ah, and explaining what the process actually is is also better for new people than just using a script doing magic (except if it is CDBS) :D21:15
mok0RainCT: true. In fact, I don't know myself what most of the diffs are, that grab-merge creates :-)21:16
gilirI am the only one who have a nice error in REVU ? :) http://revu.tauware.de/details.py?package=awn-extras-applets21:22
blueyedRainCT: I've addressed your comments in http://revu.ubuntuwire.com/details.py?package=jedit - can you look at it again, please?21:22
RainCTgilir: me too21:25
gilirRainCT: thanks :) is it possible to contact the admin of REVU ?21:28
blueyedsiretart: can you look at why the package(s) is/are broken? ^^21:30
RainCTgilir: I'd try re-uploading it first. I guess the people in group https://launchpad.net/~revu-hackers are probably all admins (I only know sistpoty who isn't online atm)21:30
blueyedSee https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/Packages/REVU for a full list of them21:31
RainCTblueyed: sorry, dinner. I don't remember how good I checked it last time but I don't think that I could find much more :)21:31
blueyedRainCT: you might want to advocate it then.. the only "critical" part is debian/copyright IMHO.21:32
dcorderoonly 4,5K my debdiff?21:32
dcorderoi read in the wiki that be a lot of weight file21:33
dcorderoshould be21:33
RainCTCoper: console-freecell looks pretty ok, I'll finish checking it later (haven't looked at the binary yet). (Until now the only "issue" that I could find is that you don't need the comments on the top of debian/rules, but that has no importance so don't re-uploaded unless there's some other problem) :)21:34
RainCTdcordero: no, 4,5 is probably ok21:35
dcorderook, i'll sent it to launchpad, my 4 sent :) ufff21:35
dcordero21:35
ScottK2Coper: I'm looking at it now too.21:36
ScottK2Coper: See my comment on REVU21:36
gilirRainCT: thanks :)21:36
blueyedprotonchris: are you still looking for something to fix? (just read your mail) I'd say that there should be plenty of things available.21:41
blueyedSee e.g. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/TODO or bugs tagged "bitesize"21:42

RainCTpaas: please use a patch system for those changes in the source, especially considering that you are using CDBS (so you just need to add 1 line to debian/rules to set it up)22:05

* jdong shudders at memories of adding a patch to quilt22:10
RainCThehe22:10
RainCTor even dpatch (well, not using it, but adding it to debian/rules)22:11
ScottK2I've been meaning to ask ...22:11
blueyedjdong: I've unsubscribed u-u-s from the bug..22:11
blueyedsiretart: <gilir> I am the only one who have a nice error in REVU ? :) http://revu.tauware.de/details.py?package=awn-extras-applets22:11
blueyedjdong: quilt is not that easy, yes, but I think dpatch is the best.. e.g. when disabling some patch.22:13
ScottK2In cdbs-edit-patch and dpatch-edit-patch I can fire them up, throw a patch diff at the source in the chroot, exit and I'm done (modulo editing 00list and dpatch comments).  Is there an equivalent workflow for quilt?22:13
blueyedScottK2: I've not found one..22:14
ScottK2I was afraid of that22:16
siretartblueyed: looks like someone (read sistpoty or me) has done a cleanup and removed the directory because of disk shortage. I haven't done such a cleanup recently, so best to ask sistpoty here22:16
blueyedsiretart: so re-uploading would fix it?22:17
siretartblueyed: very likely22:18
blueyedgilir, please re-upload your package (see above).22:18
gilirblueyed: ok thanks :)22:19
jcfpsiretart: could you sync the revu keyring please?22:20
effie_jayxI may have made a mistake and posted the wrong debdiff :S22:24
effie_jayxwhat can I do... just upload the right one?22:25
blueyedDoes somebody know why icedtea-java-7 got rejected from Debian NEW? I could not find any mailinglist where those reasons would get posted.22:26
blueyedeffie_jayx: yes, and then delete the wrong one.22:26
blueyedWow.. dholbach's sets are really great :)22:27
effie_jayxblueyed,  thanks...22:27
effie_jayxblueyed,  where can I erase the old attachment?22:29
blueyedsee the attachments section, click edit, click delete (or thelike)22:29
gilirblueyed , siretart : same error, with a different upload number :) http://revu.tauware.de/details.py?package=awn-extras-applets22:31
vemonshould the upstream changelog be installed with a package if it contains only technical stuff?22:31
vemon(which it actually should contain)22:31
geserblueyed: afaik only the uploaded/maintainer gets the rejected mail. My guess is it that it didn't match the dfsg.22:32
vemonif i've understood correctly the NEWS file would be the one to install if one would exist..?22:32
blueyedgeser: too bad.. those rejections should be more public.. and it's also bad that it got rejected, of coure.22:33
blueyed+s22:33
blueyedvemon: yes, the upstream changelog often contains technical/detailed data, which should be made available.22:33
ScottK2vemon: I'd install them both22:34
vemonok. thanks!22:34
blueyedIs there some guide to setup revu for local testing/development? :)22:37
blueyed..seems to be difficult, but I want to make some (minor) UI improvements, and like to test them..22:38
effie_jayxhow do I remove a patch in simple-patchsys22:38
effie_jayx?22:38
jpatrickeffie_jayx: delete the .diff22:39
effie_jayxjpatrick,  won't it complain at build time?22:39
jpatrickeffie_jayx: shouldn't22:39
effie_jayxjpatrick,  mkkey22:39
geserblueyed: IIRC someone setup a second copy of revu somewhere on ubuntuwire.com (or perhaps somewhere else). I'm not sure if it was Fujitsu or someone else. Perhaps #ubuntuwire can help.22:40
gesereffie_jayx: simple-patchsys applies all patches it can find in debian/patches22:40
ScottK2blueyed: Talk to imbrandon22:40
blueyedeffie_jayx: you can rename it to something != .diff or .patch probably, too.22:43
blueyedgeser, ScottK2: I prefer to develop on localhost.. :)22:43
effie_jayxIf I did a patch and the package got uploaded. now I need to fix soemthing I have to change it in a new patch right?22:43
blueyedeffie_jayx: patch=debdiff?22:43
ScottK2blueyed: REVU is non-trivial to set up.  It has a lot of hard coded paths and other painful elements.22:44
blueyedeffie_jayx: you can also adjust your patch in a new debdiff22:44
blueyedScottK2: sounds awful.. but I expected it anyway.22:44
ScottK2Source is on Launchpad.22:44
effie_jayxblueyed,  all I need is to fix some Line I erased ... I have to edit the patch or make a new one... then generate a new debdiff22:45
geserblueyed: they could help you to set it up on your localhost22:45

nxvl_workdcordero: replied :D23:16
CyberMatthttp://revu.tauware.de/details.py?package=jailkit the latest motu comment is inalid i repacked the tarball because of a flawed upstream debian/23:19
CyberMattdirectory23:19
somerville32CyberMatt: I don't think it is invalid.23:26
CyberMattwhy not repack the upstream tarball mark it with repackedx23:27
RAOFCyberMatt: Because the source package, as you have provided it, is invalid.23:28
CyberMatthmm vailidate for me23:29
RAOFCyberMatt: Easy steps to reproduce: download the files you've posted to revu into a new directory.  Try to run dpkg-source -x *.dsc, and it fails.23:30
CyberMatthmmm why is it doing that23:30
dcorderonxvl_work,  replied :D23:31
CyberMatti can reup with a note in the changelog23:31
RAOFBecause your tarball has an invalid name: you actually want to change the package _version_ to "2.5+repack-0ubuntu1", so your .orig.tar.gz can be called _2.5+repack.orig.tar.gz23:31
CyberMattoh shoot23:32
* CyberMatt should have seen23:32
RAOFWhen you repack you have to change the version number, too :)23:33
CyberMattD'oh23:33
RAOFCyberMatt: Additionally, since you've repacked the original tarball, I'd add a get-orig-source target to debian/rules to show what you've done in the repack.23:34
CyberMattmmm maybe all idid was rn -rf debian/23:35
CyberMattand re-debianize23:36
RAOFCyberMatt: Even so.23:36
RAOFYou should probably add a watch file, too.23:36
somerville32CyberMatt: keyword is "maybe"23:37
nxvl_workdcordero: in a quick look it seems ok now, let's wait for a sponsor to check it :D23:37
CyberMattg-o-s is a big pain and its also abuse of make23:39
dcorderonxvl_work, wooo :D23:39
RAOFCyberMatt: I dispute both those points.  If all you've done is rm -rf debian, it's trivial (even more so if you add a watch file).  In what way is it an abuse of make?23:40
dcorderonxvl_work, was hard for me haha23:40
nxvl_workdcordero: thats on the first times, then it would be easy23:40
nxvl_workdcordero: i promise23:40
dcorderoi hope23:40
dcordero:)23:40
nxvl_workdcordero: why don't you ask for a mentor?23:41
nxvl_workdcordero: it makes things easiest23:41
nxvl_workdcordero: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/Mentoring/Contributor23:41
CyberMattwhat we should do with g-o-s is do another maintainer script that can be called by the user much more effective23:42
RAOFCyberMatt: What's so hard about "debian/rules get-orig-source".  That's user-callable.23:42
dcorderonxvl_work, yep i think that i should do it23:43
CyberMattnot hard i just don't like anything in a makefile that doesn't need to be in a makefile23:44
CyberMattjust IMHO ill do it23:45
ion_Why is that?23:46
CyberMattmake launching wget seems creepy but i'm paranoid  :)23:47
ion_...23:47
ion_Does sh launching wget seem creepy? How about the operating system launching wget? Or the computer launching wget?23:48
=== ember_ is now known as ember
CyberMattdon't ask me to explain logical paranoia is somewhat of an oxymoron23:59
