cjwatsonccheney: I think you need to read the preseeding guide in more detail.  you need to preseed early questions on the kernel command line.  don't use debconf-get-selections for this, or look at questions.dat - it will only be confusing.00:40
cjwatson(so e.g. console-setup/layoutcode=us on the command line)00:41
cjwatsonand don't preseed console-setup/layout or console-setup/variant at all; I don't think the guide advises that?00:43

apacheloggerpitti: good morning :) is it save to assume that pot files only get imported from i386 builds?08:33
pittiapachelogger: pkgbinarymangler imports them from all architectures08:34
pittibut I'm not really sure how that works in Rosetta08:35
pittidpm: ^08:35
apacheloggerThe thing is, since we are creating pot files at build time it adds quite some load, which we really should avoid on armel and the likes.08:38
dpmhey pitti, good morning, let me have a look08:43
pittiapachelogger: my guess is that it's enough to build it on one arch only08:45
apacheloggermust be, because kde-l10n-* is arch: all :)08:45
pittithe interesting question is what would happen if different arches produce different pots08:45
pittiwhether rosetta will merge them, or randomly select one08:46
geserpitti: Thanks for the gnupg2 SRU upload. I somehow got the impression that I need an SRU ack first before seeking for sponsorship.08:47
dpmI can only confirm what pitti is saying: pkgbinarymangler uploads a tarball for each arch - I'm not sure what Launchpad does with them. Let me ask the Launchpad guys08:48
pittigeser: both approaches were in use until now; jdong just proposed the "always upload directly" approach or everyone now (which will help to speed up things)08:48
dpmthe LP guys are on a sprint, I'll try to reach them later on08:49
TimStarlingwhat happens if you have a package in two different distro versions, and the source hasn't been updated so the package has the same version, but you need to recompile it?09:14
TimStarlingdo you just bump the revision number?09:15
joaopintoTimStarling, assuming it's an universe package, #ubuntu-motu is a better channel for that question09:15
TimStarlingit's not, but I might try there anyway09:16
joaopintomvo, hi, is there a good reason for the APT's mirror: method to have the 6h Acquire::Mirror::RefreshInterval by default ? None of the other methods has such refresh, and it defeats the usual "sudo apt-get update" purpose09:17
TimStarlingit's for our own APT repository that holds our in-house software, but I'm happy to adopt conventions from anyone who has thought about the issue09:17
mvojoaopinto: no, no good reason, initially it was meant to be a protection for the server, but that is silly09:20
cjwatsonRAOF: I'd been putting it off because it's painful, but I guess I should queue it up for next.  Working on syslinux/gfxboot at the moment which is interesting in its own right09:21
mvojoaopinto: fixing that in trunk to make it 1min only09:23
RAOFcjwatson: That's cool.  gfxboot certainly sounds more fun!09:24
wrinkliezhey guys, im making my changelog for my application now.  what if it doesnt matter what distribution my program is for? do i put "all" in the changelog?09:25
joaopintomvo, great, on getdeb we are evaluating to switch from http redirects to the mirror method, for the current release we will need to distribute a apt .conf to set the refresh to 009:28
mvoyeah, in maverick that is oing to get fixed09:29
joaopintofor a web interface with frequent updates is crucial to have the cache refreshed from an updated mirror09:29
=== almaisan-away is now known as al-maisan
joaopintoso the mirror list will built from scanning a pool of mirrors09:29
joaopintomvo, is there some documentation about the 'Packages' diffs support ? I think I have seen it on some archive, apt already supports them right ?09:34
=== qense is now known as seh
mvojoaopinto: apt supports them, they are called "pdiffs" and you can get examples for this on the debian archive09:35
mvojoaopinto: but they are only useful if there is not too much churn in the packages files, as they are "sequential" (basicly just patches) and if your packages file is generated 10 times a day the user needs to download 10 patches09:36
mvojoaopinto: that may well be not efficient anymore09:36
mvojoaopinto: for stuff that is big and changes slowly they are great09:36
joaopintoright, not very useful for volatile repositories09:39
cjwatsonRAOF: ... maybe09:47
cjwatsonRAOF: current state is that kvm falls over with an internal error trying to run it, so I'm sitting here tracing through assembly code ... depends what you call fun09:48

SpamapShmm, so why isn't rrdtool listed here: https://merges.ubuntu.com/main.html  if it is grossly out of sync w/ debian and has been since 2010-01-22?23:10
cjwatsonSpamapS: bug in merge-o-matic, triggers when some Debian architectures are out of sync23:17
cjwatsonSpamapS: Debian's archive software changed a while back to keep all the versions in Sources that correspond to any architecture, and hurd-i386 is way out of date (as usual)23:18
cjwatsonSpamapS: I have half a patch for MoM to fix this but haven't had time to test it23:18
SpamapScjwatson: Ahh, so is the fix to request a sync?23:19
SpamapSI mean, workaround23:19
SpamapSThe dbi capabilities of the latest version are particularly appealing for some stuff I've been playing with. :)23:19
cjwatsonSpamapS: you can request a sync or merge as appropriate regardless of what merge-o-matic says23:22
cjwatsonthere's a single change in Ubuntu; look at it and check whether it's still appropriate23:23
cjwatsonif it is, prepare a merge (not hard to do by hand - fetch the base version from ftp.debian.org or snapshot.debian.org or whatever, diff Debian->Ubuntu, apply diff to new Ubuntu package, resolve conflicts, create new changelog entry at the top)23:23
cjwatsonotherwise, request a sync23:23
