blackxoredhello motus13:43
blackxoredI'm about to upload an azureus revision for new upstream into ubuntu, but I had to diverge since 3.0 format isn't in lucid yet, so you think is ok to upload this merge, otherwise it would be a sync eventually13:43
alkisgIs there a list of valid db_capb parameters somewhere? E.g. I'd like to enable "cancel", but not "backup", is that possible?14:13
persiablackxored: If it must diverge, it's fine to upload as a merge.  If you can sync, than it's better to do so.14:14
blackxoredpersia, I can't sync since 3.0 format isn't supported yet14:14
persiaRight, so it's fine to upload as a merge :)14:15
* persia is permanently set on extra-verbose, so some messages may end up carrying more information than is strictly necessary14:15
highvoltageI like persia on extra-verbose.14:17
cjwatsonalkisg: the presence of the cancel button is controlled by whether the backup capability is set14:35
slytherinttx: in case you plan to file any sync requests, please file one for jug as well. :-)14:35
alkisgThank you cjwatson, so I'll enable the backup capability :)14:35
ttxslytherin: heh14:36
slytherinttx: I may not boot into Ubuntu today at home so informed you.14:36
cjwatsonalkisg: I'm not sure there's a list anywhere, sorry, but 'backup' and 'escape' are the only two that can usefully be set by a debconf client (and also 'align' and 'progresscancel' if cdebconf is involved, but at the moment this is only relevant to installer hackers)14:38
alkisgWell, being new to debconf, I guess "backup" will be just fine for me :) Thanks again.14:39
slytherinAre we not syncing packages in source format 3?14:40
slytherinLaney: is this announced anywhere?14:44
LaneyI don't think so, it's just that LP can't handle them yet14:45

cornucopicHi all17:10
cornucopicis there a switch for 'apt-cache' so that It shows me only 'ARCH=All' packages?17:10
persiacornucopic: You might be looking for grep-dctrl, but perhaps not.17:13
cornucopicpersia, ah. from the name of it, i think it might just help me! Thanks. looking..17:14
persiaIt's lower-level than you asked about, but consequently more flexible :)17:14

cornucopicis this valid 'apt-cache search python | grep-dctrl -FArchitecture ALL17:34
cornucopic' ?17:34
UnggnuAre there plans so ship an 64 Bit version of the Adobe Flashplayer?17:34
cornucopici want to list packages with ALL arch.17:34
cornucopicit throws me a error, i don't understand:(17:34
persiaUnggnu: We don't ship Adobe Flashplayer directly, due to license restrictions.  If Adobe makes one available, it might be possible to integration with flashplayer-installer.17:35
Unggnupersia, it is one available and it works quite well for me. It also seems to be updated regularly with the standard player.17:35
persiaUnggnu: On the other hand, the Partner archive contains a flash player package, which might get 64-bit at a different timing.17:35
Unggnupersia, http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/64bit.html17:36
persiaUnggnu: Feel free to investigate the flashplayer-installer package, if you like.17:36
UnggnuIt would most likely fix this crashes17:36
persiacornucopic: Sorry: I tend to use snippets copied from mails and IRC logs to drive grep-dctrl.  You'll need to ask someone more knowledgeable.17:36

cornucopicWould any kinds soul help me with grep-dctrl ?18:01
pabelangerAfternoon, am I in the correct channel for packing help with a PPA?18:10
bjsnideri'm wondering if there's some way i can upload the same package to a ppa, but for 5 different series, and use the same orig tarball for each one, so i don't have to upload the source each time -- it's big and i don't have a lot of upload bandwidth18:26
ScottKbjsnider: PPA specific questions like that are more appropriate in #launchpad.18:31
bjsnideryes, they told me to go here18:32
bjsnideri don't think it's a specific ppa question18:32
bjsnidermore about debian packaging, or debuild18:33
ScottKbjsnider: It's actually very specific to how PPAs work.  In normal distro work, such questions don't come up.18:33
bjsniderwell, let me take the ppa side out of it. if you're updating a package by adding a patch or changing a dependency, are you then uploading the entire thing including the source tarball or are you just uploading the changes file and the dsc, and it's using the orig tarball that's already on the server?18:36
persiabjsnider: For distro work, one only uploads a tarball when producing a new tarball and never uploads to multiple targets.18:39
persiaSo the question simply never arises.18:39
bjsniderbut what if you're updating a package going from -0ubuntu1 to -0ubuntu2? the whole source tarball is not re-uploaded, only the changes right?18:40
persiaBut whether that applies to PPAs is a different question.18:42
persiaIt's based on how the remote archive works, not on how the development tools work.18:42
bjsnideri'm not sure you're right about that18:42
bjsniderat least i'm not using the tools correctly18:42
ScottKIt's a strong enough rule that in the Debian infrastructure if you upload the tarball again when you don't need to, the upload will be rejected.18:43
ScottKUbuntu will accept it, but complain a bit.18:43
persiaWell, it depends.  I've had rejects for that.18:43
bjsnideris there a way i can use debuild and force it to use a specific orig tarball?18:43
persiaNo, but you can use -sa to force inclusion of a tarball when debuild doesn't think you need one.18:45
bjsniderno, no, no18:46
bjsnideri'm not communicating this properly18:46
bjsniderthe orig tarball has to match the name in the changelog, right? otherwise it is not found, at least not on my system. but the name int he changelog has to change for an upload to work, so the orig name has to change with it, and that means you've got a new orig file that has to be uploaded again each time...18:50
bjsniderwhich is what i'm trying to avoid18:50
bjsniderif, on the other hand, i could force debuild to use a generically-named orig tarball, then i could upload it once and only once18:51
persiaUm, no.18:51
persiaSo, the name in the changelog has to match the package name.18:52
persiaAnd then there is the ${VERSION}-${REVISION} string.18:52
persiaThe VERSION must match the VERSION of the orig tarball18:52
bjsnidernow we're getting somehwere18:53
persiaThe REVISION can be whatever you want (although due to semantic constraints, one should always increase this when preparing new revisions)18:53
bjsniderwell, on of the two has to change or the upload won't work18:53
bjsniderbut that's beside the point18:53
persiaBut what you'll need to get from #launchpad is whether an upload of a tarball to a specific target in a PPA automatically makes it available to other targets in the same PPA.18:53
bjsniderit's easy enough to test though18:54
persiaWell, no.  It again depends on the way the archive works.  I *think* I remember a bug about revision management in PPAs, but I don't recall the result offhand.18:54
bjsniderbetween version and revision there is a dash18:55
bjsniderthe first dash is the one that's used18:55
bjsniderthat's why this wasn't working18:56
bjsniderthat's how i force debuild to use the same tarball18:56
persiaI forget.  There's some discussion of the effects of multiple dashes that I read once.  It might be the last dash.18:56
bjsnideri didn't have that dash in the name18:56
persiaYou might want to test that if you have a real need for two hyphens.  I recommend avoiding it if possible.18:56
bjsniderso it must have been seeing the whole string as $version18:57
bjsniderin an ubuntu package, is the very first attempt called -0ubuntu1 or -0ubuntu0?18:57
bjsniderwell, i didn't have any hyphens18:57
geserif upstream has a '-' in it's version string using a revision is mandatory as the last '-' determines the upstream version and the package revision19:07
persiageser: It is the last one.  Thanks!19:08

pabelangerWhat is the best way for a package in my PPA to always supersede the Ubuntu version?  IE: in my PPA I have helloworld_2.4, but ubuntu have helloworld_3.0.19:44
tsimpsonpabelanger: just upload a new version19:44
persiapabelanger: If you want to maintain a newer PPA, you have to play the merge game.  What's better about your PPA version?19:45
pabelangerNothing is better, I just want to slim down the Ubuntu version, this main reason for the PPA version.19:46
mok0pabelanger: you can give it a epoch number19:48
mok0an epoch number, even19:48
persiaWell, except then one runs into the awkward state of not being able to resync if later things work out.19:48
persiaThe alternative I'd recommend is to see if the package can be sanely split so that one doesn't need the larger binary footprint, and discuss the split with the relevant Debian maintainer.19:49
persia(well, there's the intermediate option of trying to maintain the split package in Ubuntu, but we discourage that)19:50
mok0persia: yeah.19:50
persiaepochs are dangerous.  They are the ultimate bigger hammer.19:51
mok0I guess another way is to pin it in apt.conf19:51
persiaWell, sure, but that only works for a local system.19:51
mok0persia: I agree, but it's a working solution to the problem19:51
persiaDepends on the audience, but yes.19:52
pabelangerwhat about renaming the package to a new name and setting up a conflict with the original package?19:55
persiaYou'd also need to Provide: the original package, and then you run into dependency issues because there's no support for versioned Provides.19:56
persia(note that any of the solutions outlined above *work*, they just mostly have downsides, either because they don't really solve the problem or because they require social machinations)19:57
mok0pabelanger: you could also repackage the newest version19:58
persiaBut that requires merging on a regular basis.19:59
persiaThere's also only supporting stable releases with the PPA, which means only needing to merge once every six months.19:59
geserif there are no SRUs or security uploads20:00
persiaAlthough constructing a version that is larger than any SRU or security update is easier than constructing a version that is newer than anything, but then the package is potentially inherently insecure or buggy.20:01
