infinityrbasak: Added my two cents.16:34
rbasakinfinity: thanks!16:36
smoserlamont, hm..16:37
rbasakinfinity: in general I agree with you, but here specifically there's one additional thing, which is that dhclient can grab a UDP port that later userspace then can't grab. So I think the bug is that it is (effectively) impossible to host a UDP service on a static port when using DHCP.16:38
* lamont has looked around and found zero asure ephemeral drives. :/16:38
infinityrbasak: Yes, and the bug was reported 3.5 years ago, trusty was released 2.5 years ago, and we now have a new LTS.16:38
infinityrbasak: If we'd fixed it 3 years ago, fine, yay, but we didn't, and there were really very few complaints.16:39
infinityrbasak: Is there an internal motivation for this that has escalated it, or did the itch just land on someone who found the old bug and decided it was suddenly dire?16:39
rbasakinfinity: AIUI, someone new got hit and raised it with Canonical. So new motivation arrived.16:40
slashdinfinity, UA customer filed a bug about it, but I do agree with upgrading to Xenial, this is what I told him at the first place, and then I start a discussion with caribou and rbasak if we could do more or not16:40
slashdinfinity, rbasak, so final position is upgrade to Xenial and nothing more ?16:41
naccrbasak: caribou: ack on the bug filed re: usd tag, i forgot to update documentation (for now, run `usd tag --format='logical/<explicit version>'16:41
rbasakinfinity: IMHO, the point in having an EOL is that we fix things before EOL is reached. So I'm not convinced "there's a new LTS out" should be a reason.16:41
infinityslashd: HEY YOU.16:41
infinityslashd: You owe me a bug verification on debian-installer in xenial.16:41
infinityrbasak: We don't fix ALL things.16:41
rbasakinfinity: but, if that's a -1, I think it carries more weight that my +1 on the principle (but not the method).16:41
rbasakthan my16:42
slashdinfinity, I know I change the tag to verification-done and update the lp bu about d-i16:42
infinityrbasak: There's a bar for what is and isn't appropriate to fix in an SRU.  This is pretty borderline.16:42
rbasakinfinity: I agree it's borderline, but the observation that it makes it impossible to reliably run a UDP static port service swung it for me.16:42
infinityslashd: Oh, so you did.  Thanks.16:42
naccrbasak: caribou: re: LP: #1651113 that is16:42
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1651113 in usd-importer ""usd tag" cannot tag logical tags" [High,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/165111316:42
slashdinfinity, tks for sending me a reminder16:42
infinityrbasak: I don't particularly love the behaviour, but I love any potential solution less.16:43
naccrbasak: do you want to sit down today or tmrw and prioritize the (now many) importer issues?16:43
rbasaknacc: sure. Let me figure out when is best.16:44
infinityrbasak: Anything that involves package splitting or environment-driven behaviour or, really, anything that says "trusty now supports two behaviours" will imply supporting a smooth upgrade path to same.16:44
infinityrbasak: Which means isc-dchp upgrade suddenly doing the opposite of what they do today, or similar issues.16:44
rbasakinfinity: I think the current proposal resolves that. No unexpected change in behaviour for anyone. The ugliness is in having to do an SRU to Xenial to ensure that.16:45
infinityThe use-case that leads to the misfeature being a "bug" is clearly not a common one, or we'd have a ton of angry bugs about it.  So I really think "upgrade to Xenial" is the saner answer.16:45
infinityrbasak: Nope, the current proposal doesn't address the upgrade path.16:46
rbasakinfinity: how so?16:46
infinityrbasak: Once you split to "foo" and "foo-nofeature", you're saying "installing foo gets you feature".  And then we can't have it both ways.  Either the upgrade needs to start including feature, which will make current users grumpy, or it needs to not, which breaks that implied contract.16:46
infinityThe current proposal says "all upgrades get you nofeature".16:47
infinityWhich is certainly the path of least surprise for me.  But not for someone who read "apt-cache show foo" and "apt-cache show foo-nofeature" in a post-SRU world and installed "foo" on purpose.16:47
rbasakyou're saying...> I'm not sure I agree. We could make that clear in the package descriptions. I don't think anyone would be surprised by this any more than they are surprised today that "feature" disappears on upgrade to Xenial, which already happens.16:48
rbasakI'm just surprised that you object on the principle of the thing rather than the mechanism.16:50
infinityAlright, that's a reasonable fair argument.  If you take your proposal, and add "due to this package split being a late addition to trusty, upgrades to xenial will require manually installing foo-feature if you wanted feature" might work.16:50
infinityI still disagree with the principle. :P16:50
infinityIt's a feature, not a bug.  It's a crap feature to have installed on basically all machines, but that still doesn't make it a bug.16:50
infinityIf the behaviour were itself deemed buggy and incorrect, we'd remove foo-feature from xenial, not split it. :P16:51
persiaJust as a note: if only one person is complaining, can they just have a package that works for them?  I like everything being in the distro, but some things are disruptive.16:51
rbasakinfinity: well, there are always going to be cases where users depend on one aspect of a particular feature but another aspect is a bug and should be fixed, but that would disrupt the first because SRU patches can't read minds.16:52
infinitypersia: People like me have given Canonical support a pretty strong mandate to *not* build one-off packages for customer bugfixes unless there's literally no other way to address something, because, well, that's super distro-unfriendly and just leads to chaos and extra maintenance burden.16:52
infinitypersia: Also hi.16:53
rbasakinfinity: I expect there are other less borderline cases where we'd have to do something similar. But I accept this this case is so borderline, the same reasoning can tip it over the edge to "no".16:53
persiainfinity: Hi.  People like me tend to deliver working packages and work with distro if that won't break distro, but I strongly support your base position and apologise for complicating it.16:53
infinityrbasak: Anyhow, I'm not going to be the one to block it or not.  I was offering a "this really doesn't need fixing at all, maybe you should just tell the customer to upgrade" option because, well, I feel that's the sane option.16:54
persia(and, to be fair, I'm not much of a person-like-me in the sense above these days)16:54
rbasakinfinity: so now we have two indecisions :-)16:55
infinitypersia: Yeah, were I an independent contractor, I'd provide fixes today, push to distro tomorrow, and if distro rejects, I'd figure out how to charge the client for ongoing maintenance of the forked package I just gave them. :P16:55
infinitypersia: Canonical's pricing structure for baseline support definitely doesn't support the latter part of that sentence, so letting our support guys back themselves into that corner is very bad. ;)16:55
caribouinfinity: rbasak: slashd: wouldn't a backport of the Xenial bits to the backport archive sufficient for this single occurence ?16:56
persiainfinity: Understood, and thank you for formally describing "people-like-me" in that context.16:56
infinityThus, it should be "in the distro for everyone", "no bugfix for you", or "this customer pays us way more".16:56
infinitycaribou: Perhaps, but that's an ongoing maintenance burden too.16:57
rbasakcaribou: that feels like it ships in a behaviour change in through the back door. I'm not sure backports is really intended for that, but I suppose that depends on backports policy.16:57
infinitycaribou: isc-dhcp doesn't have a perfect security record, by any stretch, so a backport as a bugfix would also mean needing to keep backports up to date.16:57
caribouinfinity: we do not propose maintenance for the backports archive16:57
rbasakCertainly with users opting in it's not so bad from that perspective.16:57
rbasakcaribou: might as well just use a PPA then?16:58
infinitycaribou: Err.  You can't have it both ways.  If this is proposed as a bugfix, the fix can't be something buggier. :)16:58
caribourbasak: PPA is a one-off in that sense and, like infinity, is strongly against them16:58
infinityAnd "here's a version frozen in time with no upgdates because we don't wanna" is buggier.16:58
rbasakcaribou: at least a PPA makes it clear though.16:59
infinityNo, please don't.16:59
caribourbasak: then let's teach them how to build their own PPA & let _them_ maintain it16:59
infinityIf the motivation is strong enough to put work in on this, do it right.16:59
rbasakI'm not sure backports should be a place to fire-and-forget in changes you don't want to maintain.16:59
slashdrbasak, won't be supported if they have other issue as per UA policy, they will need to go back to the pkg in -update if they want more support on the pkg , sec update, etc ...16:59
slashdrbasak, about the PPA ^17:00
rbasakSo, as I see it, neither infinity nor I are prepared to commit to a +1, but won't block it either. So we're effectively at 0 from an SRU perspective. Ubuntu governance requires us to be decisive. So we can extend to the rest of ~ubuntu-sru to decide, or ask the TB. That's our path to a decision if you want one.17:01
infinityDoesn't need a TB decision.17:01
rbasakI suggest that in this case if we remain at 0 then the status quo should remain.17:01
rbasakinfinity: we can ask the TB if ~ubuntu-sru can't decide, AIUI.17:02
infinityIf the isc-dhcp-client desciption is amended with a note about the split being post-release and upgrades downgrading the feature again, I'm fine with rbasak's plan otherwise.  I don't love it, but I can get over it.  But it better be deemed worth the effort by the people putting in the time on this. :P17:02
infinity(hint, hint)17:02
rbasakWell, then I guess it's fine to do if slashd prepares it all. Because infinity said it's OK :-P17:03
rbasaknacc: got time for a hangout now?17:05
rbasakI have a hard stop in 55 minutes though.17:05
slashdrbasak, infinity, so it's a +1 for my -noddns proposal, even if I totally agree that ideally, upgrading to xenial the favourite solution.17:06
rbasakslashd: that's my understanding, yes. But see infinity's requirement above, and I also want the dpkg-divert clashing path I identified in comment 38 checked carefully.17:07
caribounacc: ack on usd tag btw17:07
rbasakslashd: as well as the use cases we already identified, all being checked as part of SRU verification please.17:07
slashdrbasak, sure, will you be amenable to sponsor it once completed since you are aware of everything since almost day 1 ?17:08
rbasakslashd: I can't sponsor as I'll need to be available to provide the ~ubuntu-sru review, and I can't do both.17:08
slashdrbasak, make sense, ok will find another sponsor, no worries17:08
rbasakslashd: basically you need two reviews - one from me, and one from another person who can upload the package.17:08
infinityrbasak: If you sponsor, you can annoy me until I review.17:09
slashdrbasak, ack17:09
rbasakslashd: oh, you have a volunteer :-)17:09

infinitynacc: In this case, what they say isn't super meaningful. ;)20:01
naccinfinity: yeah, i suppose that's true :)20:02
infinitynacc: You can see the templates in the source, and what they alter.  In the sudoers case, it's adding ubuntu=NOPASSWD, which should be a sudoers.d snippet instead.20:02
infinitynacc: In the sshd_config case, it's just gross.  Lots of changes, and no way to do that without mangling a conffile.20:02
infinitynacc: So, maybe the answer is to mangle conffiles *after* the dist-upgrade step, not before.  But even then, you're leaving end-users of the image with something that will prompt on upgrade, which sucks.20:03
infinityBut, that bug seems to have existed pretty much forever, so meh.20:04

infinitysshd_config isn't a conffile.20:05
