gesergood morning dholbach07:46
geserwhat's broken?07:46
dholbachhttp://harvest.ubuntu.com lists quite a number of things which are broken :)07:47
dholbachI would think we could recommend the 'bitesize' and 'resolved-upstream' opportunities for example07:47
micahgnice list of broken: http://people.ubuntuwire.org/~wgrant/rebuild-ftbfs-test/test-rebuild-20120201-precise.html07:48

dholbachhey valdur5507:56
valdur55How can i check dailly build packages version?07:57
valdur55geminate log?07:57
dholbachvaldur55, for example this one: http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/cd-build-logs/ubuntu/precise/daily-20120223.1.log08:00
valdur55Oh i just got it... lazyness :) I already aswered to my question08:01
dholbachsearch for "hardlink:" - that's the section where you can find the packages and their versions08:01
dholbachvaldur55, it took me a bit too to find them :)08:01
valdur55OK. other problem is desktop files translation08:04
geserdholbach, valdur55: what about looking into the manifest? http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/precise-desktop-i386.manifest08:07
micahganyone care to do a quick review? http://revu.ubuntuwire.com/details.py?upid=9397  (lightdm-gtk-greeter)08:07
valdur55geser, good point!08:07
dholbachgeser, that's sounds like a clever alternative ;-)08:07
dholbachmicahg, I can take a look in a bit08:08
dholbachI'm just reviewing one of the unity-quicklist merge proposals08:08
dholbachand will offer some advice about how to work with edit-patch for the next time they submit something ;-)08:08
dholbachvaldur55, you had a question about desktop file translations?08:16
dholbachdpm, might be just your man08:16
dholbachhey dpm :)08:16
dpmhey, morning ;)08:17
dpmwhat's up in the desktop file translations world?08:17
valdur55dpm, Is it possible to send all changes in one folder? Without needing to make personal branch for every package08:18
dpmvaldur55, can you give me a bit more of context? I can't quite understand how the question relates to desktop file translations08:19
dholbachmicahg, done08:21
micahgdholbach: thanks, I just grabbed the pkg-xfce branch and tweaked it a bit08:22
micahgdholbach: not sure what that patch is for to write a description for it, I got it from Debian08:23
dholbachyeah, no idea either :)08:24
micahgdholbach: do you want to see another version? I fixed everything I think except the patch header08:27
dholbachsure, in a bit08:28
valdur55dpm, false alarm.... need some thinking time.08:31

valdur55bcbc2, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#Where_is_the_source_code.3F - some links for wubi source code08:56
dholbachbcbc2, I think you should be able to click on "propose for merging" somewhere08:57
bcbc2dholbach: I don't see it on that page.08:58
dholbachah ok08:59
dholbachdid you branch from https://code.launchpad.net/wubi?08:59
dholbachin that case you could try to push to lp:~<yourlaunchpadid>/wubi/<branchname>08:59
dholbachand see if you can find the "propose for merge" there08:59
bcbc2dholbach: I don't think the branch is the problem. I used: bzr branch lp:wubi09:00
ajmitchwhere you push to affects what launchpad will show09:01
dholbachbcbc2, I think it might be a namespace problem - so ~bcbc/+junk/wubi vs ~bcbc/wubi/<branch>09:01
bcbc2dholbach: I'm trying to push to a new branch now.09:02
bcbc2dholbach: okay, it's still scanning, but I see a 'propose for merge' there. Thanks for the help all09:04

rigvedhi everyone. i had filed a bug against one version of a package. now that package has moved two minor revision numbers up. the bug still exists. should i submit a patch against the old version (against which the bug report has been linked) or the new version, currently in precise?09:31
ajmitchpreferably against the new version09:32
ajmitchif it warrants it, after it's fixed in precise it may be able to be fixed in a stable release update for previous releases09:32

* ajmitch is just looking at RC bugs & wondering if it's serious enough for precise09:35
turbotaxanyone have smtp server or ssh root admin i need to buy09:35
rigvedanother thing that i wanted to ask was: the package in precise is not the latest available in trunk. when i do a bzr branch, i get the latest version. how to get a specific version? more appropriately, how to get the version that is currently available in precise? this is in relation to the live-build package.09:36
micahgajmitch: well, the default is 5.1, I don't think we want 4.8 in main for precise09:36
micahgbut I guess I can' t promise that09:37
ajmitchmicahg: the package is in universe, so I'll just write a note about it & not care for now :)09:37

rigvedajmitch: it gives me version 42, which already has the fix. but as far as i see, version 24 is going to be used in precise.09:39

ajmitchit looks to be one of those packages that doesn't get merged often because of the number of ubuntu changes09:49
dholbachLaney, I added a section in the pad09:49
rigvedajmitch: yes. version 3.0~a24 does not have the fix. 3.0~a42 has the fix. it is there in the bzr trunk. but it is not going into precise, sadly.09:50
rigvedso, i thought i will at least fix the problem in the current version: 2409:51

rigveddholbach: ohh. ok. cool! that was fun!11:00
dholbachgood work - I can't test it right now to judge if it's alright, but looking at what you did you seem to have crossed most of the Ts and dotted most of the Is :)11:01
dholbachone thing you might want to do still is document what the patch does11:01

dholbachif you fill them out and resubmit the patch that might avoid one more review/fix iteration, I guess :)11:02
rigveddholbach: i thought the changelog file was for that purpose. no problem. i'll do that now.11:02
dholbachrigved, sure, generally you're right - the thing is just that those patch files are often copied from one place to another, so having description in the file itself is a good idea11:03
dholbachin an ideal world we wouldn't have patch files anyway, but that's unfortunately not the case :)11:03
dholbachhttp://dep.debian.net/deps/dep3/ has more information on "tagging" patch files11:04

rigveddholbach: thanks! just one more thing. how do i add multi-line description in description field? do i use "\" - back-slash?11:31
LaneyDaviey: dunno, never maintianed a Debian package in bzr, so I've never merged with it :P11:31
LaneyI imagine it would be roughly the same level of effort in any DVCS11:32
DavieyLaney: lp:debian/sid/foo ?11:32
dholbachrigved, no, you add a line with a . in there11:32
dholbachrigved, like in "apt-cache show gedit"11:32

Laneyanyway, in this case the branches really share history rather than being imports of uploads11:34

rigvedhi everyone. i am fixing a bug using bzr. when i try to run bzr builddeb, it gives me an error: aborting due to unexpected upstream changes. reading this about this change (http://raphaelhertzog.com/2011/08/05/my-debian-activities-in-july-2011/), it seems that i have to run dpkg-source --commit patch-name. what should i give the name of the patch as?17:08
Ampelbeinrigved: Ideally one that corresponds to the changes that are in the patch. For example if your patch fixes a spelling mistake name it something like fix_spelling.patch17:10
rigvedAmpelbein: ok. so i name the patch relevant to my fix. i thought that there was some other upstream patch involved. thanks!17:11
dholbachany feedback from fix-it-friday contributors? :)17:16

* dholbach reviews retext sync and geany branch17:22
valdur55dholbach, what is sponsoring ?17:35
dholbachvaldur55, new contributors can't upload source packages to Ubuntu's build machines - so Ubuntu developer with upload rights have to review these changes and upload them for the new contributors17:36
AmpelbeinCan a arch-all package be forced to build on a specific architecture in ubuntu? In this case, openbios-ppc, needs to be built on a ppc arch. Is this what packages-arch-specific is for?17:39
valdur55dholbach, ok!17:41
valdur55damn i got it fixed and then i rebooted to check again my fix...17:42
rigvedi am fixing a quickly bug. should i set the forwarded field of the quilt patch to "no"?17:44

dholbachrigved, the good thing with Quickly is that its bugs are in Launchpad too - so it's quite easy to forward it to upstream17:49
valdur55First, i fails with Desktop check and i goes to generic and generic is buggy17:53

tumbleweedah, barry synced my wadllib upload. Thanks18:05
ockhami've thought about filing a sync request/FFe, but tesseract 3.0 breaks ocropus < 0.4 -- and 0.4 is far from packaged.18:06
tumbleweedockham: exactly, thus the dialemma18:06
tumbleweedit sounds like tesseract should probably be synced, though18:06
ockhamthough i'd highly welcome tesseract 3.* ! so many ocr guis that could use it out there18:07
ockhammost ocropus-related bugs in debian are a bit dated. i wondered if it was time for a debian-ocr team...18:07
Laneyit is approved, so someone can go for it18:07
ockhami certainly won't oppose that move :-)18:09
tumbleweedit needs someone to drive it, the sync requestor wasn't an Ubuntu developer and had no intenrest in making it happen beyond telling us that we should18:09
ockhami'm afraid i can't really do much -- just a contributor...18:11
ockhamthe ubuntu bug for the FFe has way more info than the debian ITP18:11
tumbleweedyou can make things happen without upload rights18:11
tumbleweedyeah, the transition was fairly well botched in Debian18:12
tumbleweedjwilk doesn't seem to have been very pleased :P18:12
ajmitchlooks like the tesseract sync requestor is the debian maintainer18:12

ockhamwhat's the chance of getting ocropus 0.4 packaged for precise?18:15
tumbleweedI don't know much about the package18:17
tumbleweedwe were talking about just removing it, though18:17
ockhamwell up to tesseract 0.3, it was about the only ocr with layout analysis. ie, if you had anything slightly more complicated than just plain lines of text, like columns, images, or tables, you'd need ocropus.18:18

ockham(actually a cc'ed email to pyopenfst's commiters)18:23
ockhamthey haven't replied yet, though.18:25
tumbleweedtime for someone else to write bindigs for openfst?...18:25
ockhambut would the information that *is* available be good enough for ubuntu? the google code page stating apache license 2, and the commiters' names and emails for copyright info?18:26
ockhamwe could ask jwilk if he ever started a packaging stub he could send us...18:26
c_kornarand: aptitude tell me that it cannot install any package even if it exists: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=SW0ThSxV18:26
tumbleweedockham: pyopenfst seems pretty dead18:27
arandc_korn: Use the second solution from aptitued ;)18:27
arandaptitude, even18:28
c_kornsecond? there is only one18:28
c_kornto remove the build dep package18:28
arandc_korn: press n, then press y18:28
c_kornthere are no more, http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=vTcpBhHi18:30
arandc_korn: I think apt-get goes for the install-it-all solution immediately.18:30
ockhamtumbleweed: best would be to try it, though, right? after all, if ocropus depends on it, it might be functional enough...18:30
arandc_korn: Oh, hm...18:30
tumbleweedockham: it's reasonable to beleive that they are releasing the code under the apache licence, but I'm not an archive-admin. ScottK?18:32
ScottKWhat's the question?18:32
* micahg wonders if we want diffs on random universe packages for Unity quicklist entries18:32
ScottKtumbleweed: ?18:32
* ScottK looks18:32
tumbleweedScottK: the google code project says Apache licence, but that's it18:33
c_kornwell, thanks arand. I will just go through the dependency list manually18:34
tumbleweedmicahg: if we paid more attention to stale merges, it wouldn't be a big problem18:35
arandc_korn: Does "aptitude why-not vlc-build-deps provide any hint? Or maybe "apt-cache unmet vlc-build-deps"?18:35
ScottKPersonally I'd be very reluctant to accept that package.  It looks pretty dead.18:35
tumbleweedif you don't pay attention to your lesser-importance merges, they may be synced over, or something like that...18:35
tumbleweedScottK: yeah, that concerns me too18:35
ScottKUpstream's had a long time to answer the no license bug and didn't care to.18:36
ScottKockham: If you can email the developer and get a reply that states it's Apache 2.0 licensed and put that in debian/copyright, that'd be good enough from that perspective.18:36
micahgtumbleweed: I'm not sure I agree with that, we don't want to intentionally increase the diff with Debian as it takes human intervention to get update and we have plenty of gardening to do as is18:37
ockhamScottK: thing is, i already did that, but they haven't replied yet: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=579401#4818:37
ubottuDebian bug 579401 in wnpp "RFP: pyopenfst -- Python bindings for the OpenFst library" [Wishlist,Open]18:37
tumbleweedmicahg: I think MOTU genenerally agree that we want the smallest diff possible, yes18:37
micahgbut I think I've only seem one relevant upload, if I see more, I'll start a discussion18:37
tumbleweedit's always worth pushing those bugs upstream, they don't hurt upstream, after all.18:38
micahgunlike most changes quicklists seems like something that could in theory be solved another way, and yeah, they can be pushed upstream as well18:38
ScottKockham: I guess we have to wait on an answer then.18:38
tumbleweedockham: they really do look worryingly dead18:38
c_kornoh, thanks arand. I need to remember that apt command. (aptitude seems to fail here) http://pastebin.com/tX4WtZ9K18:39
arandc_korn: The "apt-cache unmet" thing seems to work for me if I put something bogus as a build dep.18:39
ockhamtumbleweed: so, uhm, what now?18:40
ockhamwhat's left to be done to get at tesseract 3.0 in?18:41
tumbleweedpersuade ocropus upstream to find an alternative to pyopenfst?18:41
arandYeah, why-not likely mens something else in terms of functionality18:41
tumbleweed(such as writing their own bindings)18:41
ockhamtumbleweed: i'm afraid pyopenfst *are* their own bindings. check the committers for ocropus18:42
tumbleweedoh, right18:42
tumbleweedwell if they want their package to be in Ubuntu 12.04, they need to help us. Otherwise, it sounds like it's ging to be removed18:43
ockhamwell, i can deal with that, and has i haven't reached those two, i think i won't try much more before 12.04.18:45
ockhamnow, about tesseract?18:45
tumbleweedockham: file for ocropus removal, and sync requests for everything else that needs to be updated18:48
ockhamtumbleweed: that's the list found in the FFe bug posted by the OP (Jeff Breidenbach), right?18:49
ockhamie comment #918:50
tumbleweedit could probably use some testing of all the reverse-dependencies to verify that.18:50
ockhami'm not really set up for precise here...18:51
ockhamso far, i've done more singular packages with easy to check dependencies...18:51
ockhami could do those sync requests for the individual languages, though.18:52
tumbleweedthey can all be handled in the same bug18:53
ockhamnot sure if i'm the right one to do the job then -- i'd need some guidance for filing removal requests, and checking the reverse deps on my oneiric system.18:54
tumbleweedok, I'll have a look later this evening18:55
ockhamtumbleweed: great, thx!18:56
c_korntoo bad. no vlc 2.0.0 for oneiric :/ configure: WARNING: liveMedia is missing or its installed version is too old:19:00
micahgc_korn: I was considering backporting it, but it has a lot of reverse dependencies, if you'd be willing to test them all, we can try a backport19:05
micahgalthough, I'd actually prefer to wait until powerpc successfully builds19:05

c_kornoh, that are some more indeed, micahg. I will help testing as good as I can19:10
micahgc_korn: feel free to file a backport request, I'd suggest using the requestbackport scripts19:10
micahgit's in ubuntu-dev-tools from precise19:10
micahgbut I'll wait to upload a test version until powerpc is fixed in precise so hopefully we only have to do this once :)19:11
c_kornhum, I am still on oneiric here, does the script work here, too?19:13
micahgidr if it was available then, if you're using the ubuntu-dev-tools daily PPA it would be for sure19:19

orbisvicisah package not found was a type.. but still purging deinstalled packages only works with dpkg not apt-get21:25
broderuh, that's definitely not true21:26
broderi purge packages with apt-get all the time21:26
orbisvicisbroder: packages marked deinstalled? for example php5-mhash is uninstalled but not purged, this is apt-get's output21:27
orbisvicisPackage php5-mhash is not installed, so not removed21:28
DaneMHello.  I'm somewhat interested in getting into packages, but my previous attempts at following the packaging HowTo on Ubuntu's site have been somewhat lackluster.  I often come across open-source software that isn't in Ubuntu, and I'd be willing to help out (as I'm able), but I'd need more instruction than "TFM" allows.21:29
DaneM*getting into packaging21:29
DaneMCan anybody point me in the right direction?21:30
orbisvicisbroder: hm interesting21:30
broderDaneM: well, you're definitely in the right place, but starting off trying to create new packages is pretty hard. i'd definitely recommend spending some time on existing packages first21:31
broderthat way you can more ease your way into working with the various tools, instead of having to learn all of them at once21:31
DaneMbroder: Hmmm, that's probably a good idea.21:31
DaneMbroder: I've played around with pbuilder before, and used the "heresy" of checkinstall a bunch, but I always have trouble with the dependencies section.21:32
DaneMbroder: What would you suggest I start with?21:32
broderDaneM: what sort of software are you trying to package?21:32
DaneMbroder: it varies.  Anything from miscellaneous games I find to drivers to virtual tabletop software (for RPGs), etc.21:33
DaneMbroder: pretty much anything I find that I have a use for.21:33
DaneMbroder: I've spend a lot of time in Slackware and Gentoo, so compiling isn't an issue, but working out the wizardry of a package is a bit tougher.21:33
broderDaneM: what languages?21:34
DaneMbroder: you mean programming or talking?21:34
broderprogramming :)21:34
DaneMbroder: lol OK.  I think that most of what I've compiled has been C/C++.  There's been some python and some java (rarely), but the latter two are a bit foreign to me.  I can write BASH, and have dabbled in C++.21:35
broderDaneM: ok. if you're struggling with dependencies, C/C++ can actually make that easier21:35
DaneMbroder: really??"21:35
broderbecause the executables actually encode what libraries they require, the packaging tools can auto-detect those and generate dependencies from them21:35
DaneMbroder: sounds good...how does one work this magic?  :-)  Is this something done with autoconf/autogen?  I must admit that those utilities are pretty strange to me, even though I've ran them a few times.21:36
broderDaneM: basically, the way that a debian/ubuntu package works is that we overlay a directory of information about how to build/install the package21:37
broderall of that information goes in the debian/ directory21:37
broderthese days, there's a tool called debhelper that can actually supervise doing all of this for you21:38
broderhave you read through http://developer.ubuntu.com/packaging/html/packaging-new-software.html ?21:38
DaneMbroder: I have, but not in a few months.  I've noticed it keeps changing :-p21:38
DaneMbroder: looking again now21:38
DaneMbroder: if I understand correctly, one puts into the debian directory all the info about what packages are needed to compile and run the binaries, then pbuilder grabs them all and installs them in a chroot before building...right?21:39
broderDaneM: yep21:40
DaneMbroder: my problem has always been those packages that are written by developers without an interest in Ubuntu, and who haven't figured out (or at least not posted) which packages are needed for this.  I end up installing everything I think might be related, but often still get ./configure errors and such.21:41
broderDaneM: well, first you need all of the software needed by your software to build to be in ubuntu - is that the case?21:41
DaneMbroder: ...and the ones that I can compile (which is most of them, really) give me trouble when figuring out which versions of things are needed, as well as what the various odd non-package-name bits are on the depends line.21:41
DaneMbroder: I get that much :-) sorry I'm not being clear.  I find that I struggle more with how to tell debuild/pbuilder what is needed.21:42
DaneMbroder: let me see if i can get you an example.21:43
broderDaneM: you know about the Build-Depends line in debian/control?21:43
DaneMbroder: yes, but the syntax is weird to me.  I get the >=version stuff well enough (I think), but I can't quite fathom the miscellaneous other bits.  Also, many Ubuntu packages seem to have multiple binary outputs, which baffles me.21:44
DaneMbroder: one sec...getting a package to quote...21:44
broderDaneM: so a debian/control file has at least 2 blocks21:45
DaneMbroder: ok21:45
broderthe first block is about the source package, which controls the build process21:45
brodereverything else is about the binary packages21:45
broderlet's focus on the source package fields for now, because those are mostly what affect the build process21:45
DaneMbroder: ok sounds good21:45
broderthe build-depends line is just a comma-separated list of packages21:46
DaneMbroder: nodnod21:46
broderDaneM: one thing that's important is that you need the "development" version of the package, because that contains things like C headers that you need to build stuff21:46
DaneMbroder: that makes sense21:46
broderthese are things you don't need to use software that's built against the library, but do need to build that software against the library21:47
broderso you want to find the packages that end in -dev21:47
DaneMbroder: ok.  That's what I usually do for compiling outside a chroot.21:47
broderit's the same for building in a chrot21:48
DaneMbroder: ok.21:48
DaneMbroder: (downloading the source package of wine1.3 for illustration...)21:49
broderhmm...wine1.3 is probably more complicated than you should use as an example package21:49
DaneMbroder: lol ok what do you suggest?21:49
broderhmm...not really sure. let me think21:50
DaneMbroder: what about this? http://www.rpgobjects.com/index.php?c=orpg&m=getorpg21:51
DaneMbroder: this seems to have Ubuntu stuff already, but maybe for instruction?21:52
gnuvince_Does pbuilder-dist actually create a .deb file when used with the build command?  If so, where is that .deb generated?21:54
DaneMbroder: or maybe not...it seems to be just scripting, not something that needs to be compiled.21:54
brodergnuvince_: i believe it puts it in ~/pbuilder/21:54
broderDaneM: one sec, checking it out21:54
gnuvince_broder: thanks21:54
DaneMbroder: ok21:54
DaneMgnuvince: I think I've also seen it put the file into /var/cache/pbuilder/build or somesuch21:55
gnuvince_DaneM: found it in ~/pbuilder/21:56
gnuvince_I was actually looking in /var21:56
broderDaneM: so if i was going to try to package that, i'd start by looking for similar packages already in the archive. let me see if i can find one to use as an example...21:56
DaneMgnuvince_: ok, glad you found it21:56
DaneMbroder: ok sounds good21:56
DaneMbroder: Unfortunately, it looks like I have to go somewhere.  Would it be possible to continue this later?  I appreciate your help so far.22:00
