Package Todo Lists

Todo lists are used by the developers when a rebuild of a set of packages is needed. This is common when a library has a version bump, during a toolchain rebuild, or a general cleanup of packages in the repositories. The progress can be tracked here, and completed todo lists can be browsed as well.

Remove static libraries 2013-10-20 Allan McRae REQUIRES DEVTOOLS FROM TESTING! We are adding options=('!staticlibs') as the default to our makepkg.conf. A few packages genuinely need their static libraries, so these need options=('staticlibs') added to their PKGBUILDs. Those that do not need their static libraries can be rebuilt once a new devtools release is made. 683 0 Complete
Confirming need for libtool files 2013-10-20 Allan McRae Removing libtool files is about to become the default in makepkg.conf. These packages all have libtool files. Check if they are genuinely needed and if so add options=('libtool') to the PKGBUILD. If the libtool files need removed, either build with options=('!libtool) or wait for the new devtools release to build them. I will remove all options=('!libtool) from PKGBUILDs once a devtools release is made. 102 0 Complete

graphviz-2.34.0 2013-09-29 Gaetan Bisson With graphviz-2.34.0, upstream enforces the switch to the new cgraph API. Please recompile your apps against graphviz-2.34.0-1 and push them to [staging]. If cgraph support is not readily available for your app, see if a patch exists. As a last resort, disable graphviz support from your app. I will not maintain an outdated graphviz, and I have had enough of the struggle between graph and cgraph; so the only solution I see is to go with upstream. Note that I have disabled ruby bindings as I found no way to get them to compile. Suggestions welcome but I'm not overly concerned by this... Cheers. 3 0 Complete

Replace PIL with Pillow 2013-09-15 Balló György PIL is replaced with Pillow, which is an actively maintained drop-in replacement, with one detail: the PIL modules now use relative imports between each other, so it is no longer possible to write 'import Image', but one needs to write 'from PIL import Image'. 1. Replace python{,2}-imaging dependency with python2-pillow. 2. Run the following command in the root of the extracted package. If it has some result, then the package needs to be patched probably: grep -R -e '^[ ]*import.* Image,' -e '^[ ]*import.* Image[ ]*$' All rebuild should go to staging/community-staging first.

Replacement of distribute dependency in favour of setuptools 2013-08-17 Ángel Velásquez Procedure: Replace all your depends/makedepends of python-distribute and python2-distribute in favour of python-setuptools and python2-setuptools respectively. It shouldn't be any breakage (the PKGBUILD have a magic replaces line) but still we should nuke distribute anyway. See for more info If you don't see here any of your packages and uses some of these dependencies feel free to edit the TODO list and add it. 123 0 Complete

Miscellaneous license issues 2013-08-14 Eric Bélanger A user sent me a list of packages with several licensing issues: missing custom and BSD/MIT licenses, incorrect license field, etc. You can see the list here[1] if you want to know the actual issue with your package. The fixed packages can go straight in the regular repos, so there is no need to use the staging or testing repos. If there are false positives in the list, mark it as completed. [1] 199 0 Complete

Can db support be dropped from your pkg? 2013-08-04 Andreas Radke Due to the license change in db5 (MIT style) to db6 (AGPLv3) we drop the db6 update and will keep db5 in core for now. Berkeley db5 won't see much further updates if any at all. We should check each package that now links to it if that functionality is essentially required. I'm going to remove all db bump related packages from staging repo. I'm also going to revert the ToDo list to incomplete for each pkg for checking if a pkg can be build without db support. On the long run we should move db in a first step to extra and maybe later drop it completely. So go on and fix svn trunk to the old state or rebuild it to testing repo without db support wherever possible without loosing important features and mark the ToDo list. -Andy 38 0 Complete
