mark06people are moving off sourceforge, would you open exceptions to your hosting rules in special cases?00:20
wgrantmark06: Which hosting rules?00:21
mark06msys2 needs large file hosting, it's like a distro so you get many packages sometimes with 500MB for a single one00:21
mark06it's like a cygwin, but for native windows software00:22
wgrantIf a project maintainer comes to us with a good reason for rules to be adjusted, we can consider it. But Launchpad releases don't have the large mirror network that SourceForge has, so it may not be a good option.00:22
wgrantBut we're always happy to discuss options with the project maintainer.00:22
mark06I see, good to know anyway, well msys2 is not a large project itself so it may fit the needs00:23
mark06I will tell alexey about it thanks00:23
ki7mtHello All, anyone around that can enable ARM builds on a LP PPA? I posted the request in Q&A already.01:39

bdmurraycjwatson: apport contains origin information about a package in the following format "[origin: LP-PPA-ci-train-ppa-service-stable-phone-overlay]" with that its not easy to determine the username and ppa name to use archives.getByReference() in the Launchpad API. Do you have any ideas how this might improved in Launchpad? (Changing apport would require SRUs etc...)19:09
dobeybdmurray: if apport doesn't use a unique separator character in that string, i don't see how one would do that in a sensible manner19:18
barryhello!  any launchpad admins up and about?19:46
cjwatsondobey: the piece you're missing is that LP generates that string20:00
dobeycjwatson: ah ok.20:01
cjwatsonbdmurray: I'm not sure; changing that would require people to change their apt preferences files, very invasive20:01
cjwatsonbarry: I'm mostly watching a film, but what's up?20:01
bdmurraycjwatson: I was thinking of an API request to search for ppa like ci-train-service...20:02
barrycjwatson: sorry to interrupt movie night :)  i'm trying to configure a silo for system-image 3.0.1-0ubuntu1, but it keeps failing for unknown reasons.  no package shows up in the ppa.  robru suggested i ask the lp admins to see if there is more information in the rejection emails, which he doesn't get and the citrain doesn't have access to20:02
barrycjwatson: https://launchpad.net/~ci-train-ppa-service/+archive/ubuntu/landing-04020:03
cjwatsonbdmurray: possibly, but that sort of string matching is pretty expensive; it might be almost as quick to just try all the possible breakpoints from apport20:06
cjwatsonbarry: can't check logs from my phone, can you wait a couple of hours?20:06
barrycjwatson: yep, or even tomorrow morning if that's better for you20:07
bdmurraycjwatson: okay, thanks20:07
cjwatsonbdmurray: I'm not sure.  There's an argument that the terrible string format is LP's fault and so maybe we have to accept a terrible API to guess-parse it20:19
bdmurraylooking at python-apt candidate.uris has "/" and "-" so its possible to figure out on the client but would just take SRUs to make it work for most releases.20:21
bdmurrayI didn't have much hope but thought I'd ask.20:21
cjwatsonbarry: (logs in #ubuntu-ci-eng.  you've probably seen already, but just for anyone else following to know that they don't need to chase it)22:16
