Robeis there an easy/automated way to trigger cross-release builds of already existing packages in ubuntu?16:29
Robefor example I would need an utopic version of libcurl3 built for trusty16:30
dobeythe "copy packages" feature in launchpad?16:31
Robenot sure if I can copy arbitrary packages from universe/multiverse16:33
cjwatsonYou can.16:35
cjwatsonIt's possible from the web UI, but kind of hidden and awkward; but you can use copy-package from lp:ubuntu-archive-tools16:35
cjwatson(https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+copy-packages, search for the package you want to copy, wade through list of PPAs you have upload access to ... personally I'd rather the command-line client any day)16:37
cjwatsonAlso backportpackage is a somewhat more specialised tool that may be more appropriate, especially if you want builds for more than one series16:37
cjwatsonIt's in the ubuntu-dev-tools package16:38
Robebackportpackage would allow me to simultaneously copy/build the package for multiple target releases?16:38
cjwatsonIt can deal with rebuilding the package with a different version16:38
cjwatsonWhich you need if you're going to build it for more than one release16:38
Robecurrently bitten by http://curl.haxx.se/mail/lib-2015-03/0111.html which seems to be unadressed in trusty libcurl316:39
bdmurraycjwatson: is there a list of valid characters that would appear in a Launchpad username and PPA?16:40
cjwatsonbdmurray: Both of those are valid_name, which is re.compile(r"^[a-z0-9][a-z0-9\+\.\-]+$")16:41
bdmurraycjwatson: got it, thanks!16:43
Robecjwatson: thanks, awkward is a fitting description :D16:50
cjwatson+copy-packages is OK for copies between PPAs, but for copies from the primary archive it would really want a rather different design.  Which is pretty much why that page isn't linked from anywhere.16:52
Robehope I haven't broken anything16:52
Robegah, google redirector broken again16:52
cjwatsonDid you use backportpackage?16:53
Robenah, +copy-packages16:53
Robejust to see if it works16:53
cjwatsonWell, I hope you listened to my caveats :)16:53
Robelaunchpad.net down?16:53
cjwatsonWorks from here16:54
Robehrm, cdn/proxy then16:54
Robewhat's the way to go install the archive tools?16:55
Robejust clone the bzr repo?16:55
cjwatsonbzr branch lp:ubuntu-archive-tools16:58
cjwatsonBut like I say, I think you actually want backportpackage for this16:58
cjwatsonWhich is in "apt install ubuntu-dev-tools"16:59
Robecan you tell me what caused https://launchpadlibrarian.net/210358718/buildlog_ubuntu-trusty-amd64.curl_7.37.1-1ubuntu3.4_BUILDING.txt.gz to fail?17:02
Robeseems like it wanted to pull in the librtmp-dev version it was built against in utopic17:02
Robedespite it being unversioned in the build dependencies17:02
dobeythat doesn't look unversioned to me17:05
cjwatsonYeah, that stuff is taken exclusively from debian/control17:06
Robenever mind, had the trusty changes.gz unpacked17:07
cjwatson(Well, actually from the .dsc, but that's built from debian/control)17:08
Robedoes ubuntu-branches offer a code viewer for all packages of all releases?17:12
cjwatsonRobe: Only when it works, which a lot of the time it doesn't.17:21
Robecjwatson: haha, fair enough :)17:23
Robethanks for your time17:23
cjwatsonUltimately the plan is to bring up a similar thing in git which is very likely to be more reliable, but that doesn't exist yet.17:25
Robewith debian I usually click through from tracker.d.o to the respective vcs repo when there's a hint17:26
Robewas just wondering if there's something similar for ubuntu17:26
chrisccoulsonIs there a known issue with launchpad? I tried to file a bug at https://bugs.launchpad.net/oxide/+filebug, and I've just got the "Uh oh! Something has gone wrong..." page17:45
chrisccoulson(browsing through bugs before this kept timing out too)17:45
tewardpopped up immediately for me...17:46
chrisccoulsonIt seems intermittent for me. I've just tried to resubmit my bug, and it worked17:46
bdmurrayI'm getting a 503 error with bazaar.launchpad.net18:24
cjwatsonRobe: Yeah, I'd very much like to have that more consistently, but we're a ways off (ironically)18:34
cjwatsonchrisccoulson,bdmurray: I believe there've been some intra-DC networking problems ...18:34
cjwatsonPrevailing theory seems to be that it's fallout from initial sync of a new cdimage.u.c frontend18:35
chrisccoulsoncjwatson, thanks18:39
