jamespagejibel, Daviey: I'll give it another hour and see how far I get13:26
Laneytumbleweed: Why blacklist? He says 5.1 is OK13:39
LaneyI am concerned that it was left to be apparently this bad for so long though13:39
tumbleweedLaney: going from: The Fusionforge for Debian packaging team has decided we cannot invest the time and effort to provide packages for inclusion into Ubuntu, sorry. It was felt that the packages uploaded to Debian proper are “good enough” and official, and Ubuntu should be able to take them and “backport” to their releases when there are Ubuntu-specific problems13:40
tumbleweedbut I suppose that's more about the past than the present13:41
Laneylooks that way13:41
Laneydon't know what to suggest other than SRUing the new version13:42
tumbleweedit's certainly worth asking him if he wants them removed, I know they are a big enough pain to maintain in Debian13:42
tumbleweedyeah, that's the only option. And if they are as broken as he says, it's the best option13:42
tumbleweeds/the best/not a totally terrible/13:43
Laneypitti: ^^^13:43
pittiright, then SRUing might be appropriate13:43
pittiwe can't remove them from stables13:43
pittiLaney: snap :)13:43
tumbleweedyeah, ScottK did try to say that a few times13:43
Laneyif so many people are affected then somebody should step up to verify the SRUs, surely …13:44
Laney663933 is bad; we shouldn't be letting straight-up uninstallable packages slip through13:46
tumbleweedI looked at 3 random duplicates, and they were all installation problesm (in other languages)13:47
Laneydo we have any report of static installation failures in a clean environment?13:48
cjwatsonDaviey: I can probably manage to either provide information or just test the dratted things myself :-)13:48
Laneystatic → induced by package relationships only13:48
Laneyah yes, I never remember about that13:49
cjwatsonfusionforge does indeed show up in Depends / EVERY there13:49
Davieycjwatson: heh.. jibel Can you provide more info?13:51
DavieyIt's the last things blocking build from -updates only.13:51
Laneyalright, cool, I'll see if I can get any interest in doing some kind of drive on those13:53
Laneytumbleweed: in the meantime, do you want to see if he thinks SRUing 5.1 is appropriate?13:54
tumbleweedsure, I'll reply13:54
pittiok, fixed icedtea, now it's just a matter of waiting for eglibc and mesa and giving back empathy and gnome-games, then precise_probs.html should be empty again14:03

jibelDaviey, I am14:13
jamespageDaviey, jibel: more success - think I can verify both of them - almost there with the iscsi one!14:16
Davieyah, great - thanks jamespage .14:16

pittiskaet, Daviey: I'm hanging out alone in the desktop room ATM, but happy to change somepalce else14:32

cjwatsonjamespage: your comments look bug-worthy in themselves but separate from the bug at hand, indeed14:42
jamespagecjwatson: agreed; I'll raise another bug - I think its a problem in partman-iscsi14:42
cjwatsoncan't see how they'd be related to the fix14:43
* jamespage has been source diving14:43
cjwatsonyes, well, the lack of support for --target is in kickseed14:43
cjwatsonbut as commented in its source, it doesn't seem to do anything in anaconda either14:43
cjwatsonor at least the version of anaconda I looked at; it may have moved on14:43
jamespagecjwatson: I noticed :-)14:43
pittiDaviey, skaet: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/lucid/+bugs?field.milestone%3Alist=3051014:44
jamespagecjwatson: I'll retry the iscsi test using a straight preseed to confirm - but probably not today!14:44
cjwatsonyour comment makes sense, I can see how that would arise14:44
cjwatsonright now partman-iscsi doesn't try to authenticate before asking whether it needs a username, IYSWIM14:45
cjwatsonarguably it should14:45
cjwatson'preseed partman-iscsi/login/incoming_username string' in a kickstart file would work around that14:45
pittijamespage: ah, you'll be able to regression test the kickseed LVM bit? (#708548)14:46

Davieyjibel: Have you tested that one? ^^14:47
Davieyskaet / pitti: "Turn off cron jobs that will auto update into -updates until final images are tested."14:49
jibelDaviey, nope, bug 708548 and bug 810068  are the 2 I couldn't test and why I called jamespage to the rescue since the reporter doesn't seem interested in testing the fix.14:51

Davieyjamespage: and happy?16:18
jamespagesee comment for details but the logical volumes are only cleared automatically IF a kickstart using logvol commands is being used16:18
jamespageDaviey: again its better but does not cover all cases16:18
Davieyjamespage: It's too late to fix it further i think.  The question is really:16:19
Daviey - Does it regress?16:19
Daviey - is it a somewhat improvement?16:19
jamespageDaviey: not that I can see - its an improvement16:19
jamespagein reality how many people are really using kickstarts with ubuntu?16:20
Davieyi can't say. :)16:20
DavieyI used to.. :)16:20
jamespagewell it was not important enough for the bug reporter to verify the fix....16:20
Davieyyeah.. i think we'll get it included.. we still have time to back it out, if it does regress.16:21
Davieyjamespage: Thanks for your effort on this, it's really appreciated.16:21
jibeljamespage, thanks much.16:21
jamespageDaviey, jibel: np - I've not written a kickstart for at least 7 years!16:21

Davieymicahg: ^^21:34

skaetDaviey, confirmed.  please start building from -updates now.  :)21:38
Davieyskaet: It seems we build from -security aswell.. so if micahg uploads anything there, it gets included regardless if it is in -updates21:41
Davieycjwatson: can you confirm ^^?21:41
skaetDaviey its not there now,  so as long as the cron is off, we can manage it tomorrow.21:46

Davieycjwatson: Right, micahg was suggesting turning off the copy for Lucid.. and i sugegsted that wouldn't help.22:57
* Daviey suggests he stops suggesting.22:58
cjwatsonwe could change it all, but we haven't needed to in the past and I suspect it isn't worth it22:59
cjwatsonI don't see your commits disabling -updates22:59
DavieyYeah, i don't think it's a biggy.  He has an update pending, which will ether be included or not.22:59

cjwatson"Change cdimage/bin/run-germinate, debian-cd/CONF.sh, and the cdimage crontab to build from -proposed temporarily" - you want to reverse that23:03
