mfischwas launchpad ever called "Malone"?03:03
mfischI found some old changelog entries that say "closed Malone: #xxxxx" and it's an LP bug #03:03
StevenKmfisch: The Bugs component of Launchpad is Malone, but nowdays that's really only an internal name.03:04
mfischinteresting, thanks03:05

cjwatsonmfisch: I think that old name was my fault.  (See "Bugsy Malone")08:50
* ogra_ wasnt aware we still use it 08:54
cjwatsonSee scrollback08:55
cjwatsonIt's in old changelogs08:55
ogra_well, StevenK claims its an "internal name" :)08:55
cjwatsonWell, yes, that too08:56
cjwatsonBut no reason you should be aware if you don't hack on LP :)08:56
ogra_heh, indeed08:56
RhondaTotally missed the release.  %-/09:25
RhondaHmm, the saucy release didn't obsolete any older release?09:34
RhondaWas the lifetime of precise extended with respect to former releases?09:34
Rhondaoneiric was obsoleted by raring, why doesn't saucy obsolete precise …09:35
Unit1935 year LTS.09:36
Rhondaof course, totally overlooked the LTS part.09:36
RhondaUnit193: Thanks for helping me think. :)09:36
Unit193Sure. :)09:36
geserRhonda: according to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases the next EOL are Jan 2014 (raring), April 2014 (quantal) and July 2014 (saucy)09:40
Rhondageser: Right, that's the information I looked at. :)09:46
RhondaWait a moment.  Is july 2014 for saucy really proper?09:46
RhondaI would expect April 2015?09:47
Unit193Normal releases are 9 months now.09:47
RhondaSince saucy09:48

mfischcjohnston: thanks for that info. I was wondering if there was really a bug tracker called Malone but the bug number matched LP so a rename made sense13:16

RhondaWe need to prepare a saucy update for ejabberd.  Current version in saucy is 2.1.10-5ubuntu113:28
RhondaWhat version shall we choose?  trusty-proposed has 2.1.11-113:29
RhondaAh, wait, it's stuck in trusty-proposed because it doesn't carry the -ubuntu changes  *checking*13:29
geserRhonda: it still needs building on powerpc before it can transtion to trusty13:36
RhondaSo it would automatically transition to trusty?13:37
RhondaI just checked, the ubuntu diff isn't needed anymore.13:37
geserit's like in unstable -> testing but without the waiting time and RC bug check13:39
cjwatsonhttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/ProposedMigration for the rules13:39
cjwatsonejabberd will probably be fine, the powerpc builders are just a bit behind13:40
geserRhonda: I'd say the saucy SRU should be 2.1.10-5ubuntu1.1 (the usual SRU scheme)13:42
Rhondageser: Thanks. :)13:42

sebikulHey there! I'm a contributor to the Gambas(gambas.sf.net) project. I'm looking for a MOTU sponsor to update the gambas3-* packages avalable in the official repositories. Those where imported from debian, and although the maintainers where contacted, we received no response from them.18:42
sebikulThere is a PPA with the latest version, so the packages are already available. I'm looking at updating those older packages as they are broken and badly packaged.18:44
sebikulHow should i proceed?18:46
TheLordOfTimesebikul, if it exists in Debian have Debian update the packages, then they can be synced to Trusty whenever debian syncs are opened, i think.18:47
TheLordOfTime(I'm not MOTU, i'm just making an observation)18:47
TheLordOfTimetypically getting the package updated in Debian is best... not sure if MOTU will approve a delta from Debian for this package though.  (since it's MOTU's call)18:48
sebikulI know updating the debian packages is the best course of action, but we have already tried to contact them and received no response. We get a lot of bug reports from people using Ubuntu with these older packages, which are almost a year old and several milestones behind18:49
sebikulAt least as a temporary fix....18:49
Noskcajsebikul, Where have you contacted debian guys? pkg-gambas-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org ?18:50
NoskcajTheLordOfTime, We have a fairly large diff already18:50
TheLordOfTimeNoskcaj, REALLY?18:52
TheLordOfTimewhoops caps18:52
* TheLordOfTime looks at changelogs18:52
Noskcajwell it's ubuntu818:52
NoskcajI didn't check the logs18:52
NoskcajSo i don't think debian are too ctive18:52
TheLordOfTimeNoskcaj, ignoring the package delta, i was focusing on the major version18:52
TheLordOfTimenot the package revision thing18:53
TheLordOfTimeeither way, AIUI, the updated version would hit Trusty, and not the older releases, right?18:53
sebikulWe have contacted one of the mantainers directly, as he is a member of the gambas-users list. I'm not sure if someone else made contact with another maintainer. I will send an email now and wait for an answer, but i'm not expecting one18:55
dereckSince I have been working on something similar recently: The workflow is to land the latest code in debian -> merge/sync from debian to Trusty -> backport to previous versions of ubuntu if desired.18:55
TheLordOfTimedereck, if desired / if possible.  not all software cleanly backports18:55
derecksebikul: you may be able to contact any debian maintainer and help keep the package up to date IIRC18:56
dereckyou don't nessiarally need the original maintainer, although that's the best way. :)18:56
dereckTheLordOfTime: true dat.18:56
TheLordOfTime(case in point, come next debian sync to trusty, nginx won't cleanly backport because build-deps)18:58
sebikulWell that's great! Just to make sure; if packages are updated in debian unstable. Can they be backported to older Ubuntu releases?18:58
TheLordOfTimeoop lag, missed you saying "true dat"  :)18:58
TheLordOfTimesebikul, it can be requested18:58
TheLordOfTimesebikul, if you ping me i'll take a look and see if it builds on older releases18:58
TheLordOfTimeas build-deps and such are sometimes a problem18:58
TheLordOfTime(i'm not MOTU, but I volunteer my sbuild setup to test building)18:59
TheLordOfTimefrom there, the backports procedures are relevant.18:59
sebikulTheLordOfTime, That's great. Thanks a lot for your help. I will come here once everything is fixed on the Debian side, hopefully. Thanks again!19:00
TheLordOfTimesebikul, i do suggest you read up on the backports process here though19:01
TheLordOfTimebecause building is only part of the confirmation it'll work :P19:01
TheLordOfTimei think that's all at this page... https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBackports19:02
TheLordOfTimebut i dunno since my links were lost with my old system :/19:02
TheLordOfTimeeither way i'll volunteer to test-build the package.19:02
sebikulTheLordOfTime: Thanks again ;)19:05
* TheLordOfTime goes to testbuild nginx builds before pushing them to the staging PPA for the nginx team19:07
cjwatsonNoskcaj: don't go by the number alone.  most of those revisions are rebuilds.20:00
TheLordOfTimecjwatson, exactly the point i was making, a version delta outside of rebuilds/package patching might be more significant20:00
TheLordOfTimehence how we said "Fix it in Debina first"20:03
cjwatsonI entirely agree20:04
cjwatsonjust wanted to say that I had actually *looked* at most of those 8 Ubuntu uploads and the bulk were rebuilds20:04
Unit193And then there are things like debian-installer, where some revs may be the exact same fix.  So the date on the bin may not mean anything, and the current one may be close to the one in Ubuntu.  Another reason to get it in Debian, you won't hold up auto-syncs that way.20:04
NoskcajI agree20:05
TheLordOfTimespeaking of autosyncs when's the next autosync with Debian for universe packages?20:09
Unit193Heh, what I'm wondering is when cryptsetup can be sync'd. :P20:15
TheLordOfTimei'm curious because i want to make sure the nginx 1.4.3 gets in from unstable, with its build-dep (although its build dep is sufficient for Saucy and later so far)20:15
TheLordOfTimeand unless i'm mistaken there's an autosync from Debian normally20:16
Unit193TheLordOfTime: It won't technically autosync since it has the Ubuntu branding.20:17
TheLordOfTimeUnit193, ehhh, it should be synced and then a patch applied to reapply the branding, 1.4.3 > 1.4.120:17
TheLordOfTimeand honestly i think that delta solely for the Ubuntu branding isnt' needed...20:17
TheLordOfTimesomewhat good idea, yes.  blocking for sync, not really.20:18
Unit193Not automatically.20:18
TheLordOfTimei don't know of any Ubuntu specific delta in that... :/20:18
TheLordOfTimeehhh, maybe i'll do what i normally do, post a sync request20:18
cjwatsonTheLordOfTime: Err ... every six hours20:29
cjwatsonTheLordOfTime: And nginx 1.4.3 is *already* in, manually merged by me20:29
TheLordOfTimecjwatson, ah, i missed the merge information then. ^.^20:29
TheLordOfTimecjwatson, thanks for that btw :P20:29
cjwatsonThe Ubuntu branding shouldn't be dropped, but should be forwarded to Debian in such a way that it's applied conditionally20:30
TheLordOfTimecjwatson, agreed, but Debian's maintainers don't really care about the Ubuntu branding, but if you want to give me details to give them i'll do that in the next bug i send their way20:30
cjwatsoni.e. ifeq (yes,$(shell dpkg-vendor --derives-from Ubuntu && echo yes))20:30
TheLordOfTimesince i'll be on the debian BTS later20:30
cjwatsonwould need a bit of work to adjust NGINX_VER of course; you could look at what I do in openssh20:31
cjwatson(I don't care that much, the merge effort is trivial for me)20:31
xnoxTheLordOfTime: autosync is running non-stop.21:28
xnoxUnit193: cryptsetup needs manual merging, since we do it quite differently on ubuntu (the initramfs / boot steps)21:29
Unit193He's stalking me. >_>21:29
Unit193Yep, read the changelog.21:29
TheLordOfTimeUnit193, heh21:29
TheLordOfTimexnox, cool, didn't know, although cjwatson manually merged it because of the ubuntu branding delta, apparently21:30
TheLordOfTimexnox, out of curiosity, do you know if that "Backports can't build-depend on other backports" thing was fixed?  Back in 10.* it was an issue for a few backports i requested... curious if it was ever resolved.21:34
xnoxTheLordOfTime: find the bug report on launchpad and check. I think it was fixed.21:37
xnoxbut I don't usually do backports =)21:37
TheLordOfTimexnox, true, but it was a general repo builder thing i think21:37
xnoxTheLordOfTime: no, it was not.21:38
xnoxTheLordOfTime: and when i say check launchpad I mean launchpad.net/launchpad bugs in launchpad itself =)21:38
TheLordOfTimewait it was a launchpad specific bug? o.O21:39
cjwatsonTheLordOfTime: That's https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad/+bug/888665; IIRC it winds up being closely related to upgrading launchpad-buildd to use a modern sbuild23:00
ubottuUbuntu bug 888665 in Launchpad itself "Backports can't build-depend on other backports" [High,Triaged]23:00
TheLordOfTimecjwatson, looks like that bug was deescalated in favor of another bug...23:05
cjwatsonThat's fairly irrelevant23:06
TheLordOfTimebut was this fixed was the question23:06
cjwatsonYou can tell it wasn't because the bug is still open23:06
TheLordOfTime(doesn't look it)23:06
cjwatsonEscalation was for back when Launchpad had ~25 developers rather than ~223:07
cjwatsonThat said, we've been getting a fair bit of buildd work done of late, and that one is relatively high on the list23:07
cjwatsonIf only because running with a nine-year-old sbuild fork is boring23:08
TheLordOfTimeso, fixed in the relatively near future?23:08
cjwatsonCan't promise but I still hope so23:08
TheLordOfTimei hope so too, this one person emailed me asking if nginx is easily backportable and it's not because 88866523:08
TheLordOfTime(has another runtime and build-dep dependency that needs to be backported)23:08
TheLordOfTimeonly place older releases can have newest nginx is in the nginx team PPAs :/23:08
TheLordOfTimenewest stable*23:08
