ogayotHi, could someone retrigger the failed cmake autopkgtest for me please? I'd appreciate it09:02
ogayot`retry-autopkgtest-regressions --series lunar | grep -F package=cmake`09:02
seb128ogayot, retried09:04
seb128or not, got some timeout it seems :/09:04
ogayotseb128: thanks for trying! Sadly I've hit timeouts a couple times too this morning09:07
ginggsit should be safe to run that script again after a few minutes, it should not schedule things that are already in the queue09:10

juliankI don't remember, did we have a build-profile for ubuntu-specific build dependencies?15:42
schopinIf we do that's news to me, but that sounds like a good idea.15:44
juliankNow I'm mostly wondering if we made apt use Rust libraries and needed them packages as individual packages in Debian but vendored in Ubuntu, could we just have them in an apt-rust-sources package15:44
schopinjuliank: remind me again which Rust lib you're interested in?15:54
juliankschopin: sequioa15:54
schopinjuliank: but you'd use it from C (or C++), right? So basically what you'd want to depend on in APT would be a libsequoia-dev15:55
schopinApparently sequoia has a FFI so it would make sense to actually build it as a .so in the distro.15:56
juliankschopin: I thought so but the Rust people said I should write my own Rust wrapper15:57
schopinWhich Rust people? The #debian-rust people or the sequoia people?15:57
juliankschopin: the rust sequoia people16:26
schopinWhat's the point of flaunting an FFI if we're supposed to write a Rust wrapper? -_-'16:27

murmelEickmeyer: so :)?18:42
murmelwould definitely like to hear the reasoning18:43
Eickmeyermurmel: I mean, from even more senior developers than myself.18:43
murmeleh, and your take?18:43
murmelbecause, it holds up quite a bit when you want to package stuff for newer releases18:44
EickmeyerBackporting (or an SRU of debhelper) to a stable release of debhelper could introduce breaking changes and change the way debhelper is used in the build system for that particular release, particularly the way it is used in the build system in Launchpad.18:44
ubottuPackages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.18:45
EickmeyerWe keep things Stable for a reason.18:45
EickmeyerSo, unless there's a specific bug that needs to be fixed in debhelper, there's no reason to backport.18:45
EickmeyerIf you want to package stuff for newer releases, package it *in* that newer release.18:46
murmelEickmeyer: why even offer -backports then? I mean just run the newer release then18:48
Eickmeyermurmel: For updates to applications, not development components.18:48
murmelEickmeyer: pretty sure that even the -backports team sees this differently (specifically debhelper)18:49
EickmeyerWell, then the backports team is welcome to chime-in. I'm not on the backports team, but I know some that are. ddstreet and teward for example.18:50
EickmeyerThat said, even a backport of debhelper could potentially break the entire backports repo.18:51
murmeloO how would that work ?18:52
EickmeyerRemember, the packages have to build against everything in the repository they are entering.18:52
EickmeyerSo, we're talking no-change rebuilds for everything that's in there for a new debhelper version.18:52
murmelEickmeyer: debhelper is not depending on anything, and nothing depends on it (as packages depend on the compat part)18:54
Eickmeyerdebhelper is a build dependency for everything.18:54
arraybolt3And keep in mind Britney doesn't exist in -backports, which adds to the danger. At least for -updates, Britney can control the migration of stuff out of -proposed so that it doesn't break people's systems as it builds and migrates. -backports? No such safety mechanism.18:54
murmeldebhelper-compat = 13 is not debhelper18:54
Eickmeyerdebhelper-compat merely defines the debhelper version it's compatible with, and debhelper along with it.18:55
EickmeyerIf you don't understand that, go back and re-read the Debian packaging manual.18:55
murmelbrb in 25 mins18:56
EickmeyerAlso, Debian/rules executes dh directly, which is literally debhelper.18:56
arraybolt3(What have I started... I went to study something for a request to see if it was safe and doable and now have sparked an explosion...)18:57
ahasenackjuliank: any idea why apt-check would call lsb_release so many times? apt-check's pid is 352917 (line 39 of paste), and that's the PPID of every lsb_release call following that: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/FKzBZ3k4nZ/18:59

sarnoldahasenack: ugh yeah, especially in the days before the motd caching stuff..19:04
arraybolt3sarnold: lol @ impressive and depressing19:07
arraybolt3TBF though, I'd guess most stuff in the guts of a computer are like that. It's awesome how many pieces have to work together just right for things to happen the way they're supposed to.19:08
sarnoldoh yes, I'm shocked computers work well enough to get to a login: prompt these days19:10

ahasenackI don't see that crazy amount of calls to lsb_release in kinetic19:18
ahasenackjust one call to lsb_release -cs, actually19:19
ahasenackbut less updates available (still about a dozen, not just one)19:19

Eickmeyerteward: Twice, once with a backport topic.19:23
tewardEickmeyer: because i'm still in the middle of stuff want to give me the quick overview of what's up?19:23
Eickmeyerteward: Brief backscroll, but person requesting backport of debhelper (solid no imo).19:23
tewardyou don't read19:24
tewardlearn to read documentation Eickmeyer19:24
murmelEickmeyer: sorry was kicked out of a store (closed for today). so rereading about the compat profiles, there are no breaking changes in those. so it shouldn't matter which version version of debhelper you are running as long as you have defined the correct compat profile19:24
tewardwe update that on the regular since we're building things today19:24
tewardmurmel: if you want something in -backports your request has to go to the Backporters team19:24
tewardwhich Eickmeyer is not a member19:24
tewardsee https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBackports19:24
Eickmeyerteward: murmel wants it in Jammy, which is LTS.19:25
arraybolt3teward: Pretty sure he wanted debhelper in Jammy.19:25
murmelteward: we are talking about debhelper being in -backports or not19:25
tewardmyself, ddstreet, and mapreri review these requests and decide on our own19:25
tewardwe make the final decision for -backports19:25
tewardthat's under the purview of the Backporters team19:25
tewardthis said19:25
tewardas you can see two things from the special cases section:19:25
teward"The following packages are allowed into the backports pockets of non-LTS releases, because they are deemed useful to always be available on the latest possible release."19:25
teward"At the moment these 5 packages are handled by the Backport Team themselves. "19:26
tewardthis was a decision made in our earliest meetings19:26
tewardif you want the Backports team to consider changing this, emails to the backports team is required and it will be discussed at the next meeting or internally depending on availabliity19:26
Eickmeyerteward: To be clear, I was not speaking on your behalf, but as someone who might be requested to sponsor.19:26
tewardEickmeyer: in which case you get a slap for not reading the docs anyways ;)19:27
tewardyou're my scapegoat today (normally it's Simon but he's away)19:27
tewardANYWAYS, back to the red-alert level crap for $DAYJOB law enforcement partners.19:27
murmelteward: so do I need to request to get debhelper into jammy? or is it done "at some point"?19:27
sarnoldyou're just playing command and conquer over there??19:27
Eickmeyersarnold: When is he not?19:30
arraybolt3There's a reason we give him all things sysadmin over in Lubuntu-land and we stay out of it for the most part. He's really good at total control of his area of mastery.19:30
* arraybolt3 yawns and goes back to testing a bugfix19:35
* sarnold yawns and goes back to tasting a bug19:35
tewardmurmel: you can request it, but don't be surprised if we reject the request per our exceptions policy/rules, or if we say "we agree and will get to it within X timeframe" then one of the backporters will handle the package.  However, regardless of the outcome, you have to **provide significant ample justification for the need for a backport**.  debhelper usually ISN'T backported because most packages can simply change their targeted19:35
tewardif they need to be backported.19:35
tewardsarnold: incoming bugspam19:35
arraybolt3sarnold: I've eaten grasshoppers before, they're pretty good roasted.19:35
* sarnold hides behind procmail19:35
sarnoldarraybolt3: lol19:35
sarnold*maybe* with the right spicy sauce or something..19:36
murmelteward: thanks :)19:36
tewardmurmel: also keep this in mind:19:38
tewardif something *cannot* build on the older verison of dev libraries without an additional backport, it's probably *not* worth a backport19:38
tewarddebhelper for instance is one of those dev libraries that's usually left alone19:38
tewardeven in Debian backports19:38
murmelteward: oO how is it left alone when it always gets backported in debian?19:44
tewardi've seen a case or two where it's NOT in the debian backports pockets19:44
tewardhowever in Ubuntu we tend to leave it alone19:45
tewardas i said, make your request, you'll get the backporters team response by the next meeting.19:45
tewardhowever i am currently in the middle of some major stuff so i can't put any more cycles to this at the moment19:45
murmelteward: thanks :). no need anyway19:45

arraybolt3Possibly silly question, but if I want to use "dput ssh-ubuntu" to upload something, I get a warning about a host key not being recognized or something (the usual thing you get when you first try to connect to a new SSH server). Is the host key for Launchpad documented anywhere so I can know I'm not about to expose anything important to a malicious third party?19:54
arraybolt3(I don't know if ssh-ing into the wrong machine is dangerous, but I'd rather not find out the hard way.)19:54

enr0nThe excluded one looks like it needs a migration-reference/0 test20:44
tewardjbicha: true, but note that Backporters handles that package itself20:44
tewardso while technically you're right, it's not something that the Backports team currently lets "anyone" backport.20:45
tewardlots of testing, etc.20:45
arraybolt3Are autopkgtests a thing in a PPA? I have a package that contains deliberate changes that entirely break an autopkgtest for a particular package - this is on purpose because I'm testing something. If autopkgtests are used in PPAs, will their failure prevent the package in question from being usable?20:45
tewardarraybolt3: you can trigger autopkgtests against a PPA but it shouldn't impact the actual packages in proposed, etc.20:45
tewardi don't think there's automatic triggering though20:45
arraybolt3+1, alright, will attempt chaos to see if I can get things sorted out.20:45
