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.

Replace lesstif with openmotif 2017-08-31 Antonio Rojas lesstif has been dead for years, it's buggy (FS#55449, FS#47569) and even upstream discourages using it [1]. Rebuild your packages against openmotif instead so we can drop it from the repos. Packages can go straight to stable (or testing). [1] http://lesstif.sourceforge.net/ 10 0 Complete
opencv 3.3 2017-08-19 Antonio Rojas Packages go to [staging] 8 0 Complete
GHC 8.2.1 2017-08-17 Felix Yan Most packages have been automatically rebuilt. Here is a list of those failed to build, please consider to fix them or drop (temporarily). 6 0 Complete
cmake 3.9 rebuild 2017-08-14 Felix Yan Packages used to put file in /usr/share/cmake-3.8 need to be rebuilt to put them in the new place. 5 0 Complete
code.google.com retirement 2017-07-16 Jelle van der Waa code.google.com source urls are no longer working. Update them for your packages. This todolist might include url= containing code.google.com, which should be updated as well. Script used to find these urls: grep -lr "code.google" | awk -F "/" '{print $1}' | uniq 68 0 Complete

hardening-wrapper removal 2017-07-10 Bartłomiej Piotrowski With recent changes in toolchain, it is feasible to replace hardening-wrapper with simple rebuild against testing (with testing/devtools installed). The major differences are lack of -fstack-check (which is not enough to prevent stack clashes without full distro rebuild) and no enforcement of full RELRO if LDFLAGS are ignored. Remove hardening-wrapper from makedepends and run checksec on both old and rebuild packages to see if there is any regression. If yes, it means that build system should be patched to reflect out LDFLAGS instead; otherwise push packages to stable repositories and mark them as done. 11 0 Complete
PIE static libraries rebuild 2017-07-10 Bartłomiej Piotrowski Toolchain in [core] enforces position-independent executables. Non-PIE static libraries have to be rebuild, otherwise dependent packages will fail to build. If anything on the list seems bogus, ping me on IRC and remove from the todo. Packages can be pushed straight to [extra]/[community], as long as you remember to build them with up to date devtools and toolchain. 198 0 Complete

Clean qt5-tools dependency 2017-06-25 Balló György Most packages require qt5-tools only to build, except if they use QtHelp. Please verify your package and move qt5-tools to makedepends if needed. If your package really depends on qt5-tools, just mark it as completed. 8 0 Complete
Gna! retirement 2017-06-25 Balló György gna.org was retired recently, so any url and source should be changed in order to use the "new" upstream url. Unlucky it's not so easy to find the new url for any package, since there was no a complete migration to another hoster.

OpenSSL 1.0 - take 3 2017-05-17 Jan de Groot We need to re-version OpenSSL library symbols to stay compatible with Debian Stable and non-free software. FS#53836 This one breaks ABI with openssl-1.0-3, so build order can be important here. 30 0 Complete

openssl rebuild, take 2 2017-04-05 Antonio Rojas The openssl 1.1 rebuild causes issues in some packages which have dependencies linking to different openssl versions, due to symbols clash. This affects mostly Qt packages. To prevent this, openssl-1.0 1.0.2.k-3 adds versioned symbols. Packages that link to openssl-1.0 need to be rebuilt against this new version to have them use the versioned symbols. Packages go to staging. 33 0 Complete
Guile 2.2.0 2017-03-29 Bartłomiej Piotrowski libguile-2.0.so → libguile-2.2.so libguilereadline-v-18.so has been removed. There is also guile2.0 package that can be co-installed with guile. Packages go to [staging]. 17 0 Complete

libglvnd move 2017-02-13 Laurent Carlier (lib32-)libglvnd will provide (lib32-)libgl, (lib32-)libegl and (lib32-)libgles and will depend on (lib32-)opengl-driver. (lib32-)nvidia-utils and (lib32-)mesa will provide (lib32-)opengl-driver and will provide their respective (lib32-)nvidia-gl and (lib32-)mesa-gl for compatibility with old packages. (lib32-)nvidia-304xx will move to unsupported when the rebuild will move to testing, as (lib32-)mesa will not provide anymore libegl and libgles. I will take care of the rebuild, you can take care of the testing! 6 0 Complete
libxml++ 3.0 update 2017-02-08 Jan de Groot Libxml++ 3.0 is incompatible but parallel installable with libxml++-2.6. Rebuilding (or patching) against 3.0 is prefered, in other cases the package should be recompiled against libxml++2.6. Packages go to staging. 9 0 Complete

OpenSSL 1.1.0 Rebuild 2017-01-29 Pierre Schmitz See https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2017-January/028673.html Needs to be moved together with the libgit2 rebuild. For packages which needs a lot of fixing and not a simple patch, you can use the openssl-1.0 package For pkg-config builds use: export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0/pkgconfig For cmake cmake it's -DOPENSSL_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/openssl-1.0 -DOPENSSL_SSL_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0/libssl.so -DOPENSSL_CRYPTO_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0/libcrypto.so 359 0 Complete

NSS update 2017-01-25 Jan Steffens NSS 3.28 requires changes in Gecko-based packages in order not to break HTTP2. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1323209 The following patch has to be backported: https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/raw-rev/361ac226da2a Firefox 51 is already compatible. Packages go to [staging]. Perhaps an opportunity to drop xulrunner? 5 0 Complete
Qt 5.8 2017-01-23 Antonio Rojas These packages fail to build against Qt 5.8 and need to be fixed before moving it to [testing] 6 0 Complete
Phasing out old GNOME libraries 2017-01-20 Balló György The following GNOME libraries are deprecated since 2008, and unmaintained since 2011: gnome-vfs, libbonobo, libbonoboui, libgnome, libgnomeui, libsexy, orbit2 We try to get rid from these packages. This TODO contains a list of packages which depend (directly or indirectly) on gnome-vfs, libsexy or orbit2. If the package can be built without these libraries, do so. Otherwise, contact with upstream for a solution, or remove the package. Updated packages can go straight to extra/community. 60 0 Complete
Phasing out qtwebkit 2017-01-20 Balló György QtWebKit for Qt 4 has been unmaintained for quite a while, and lots of CVEs have accumulated. For more information about the WebKit situation, take a look at https://blogs.gnome.org/mcatanzaro/2016/02/01/on-webkit-security-updates/ To protect our users we should try to limit the packages using qtwebkit, with the goal of eventually getting rid of it completely. This TODO contains a list of packages which depend (directly or indirectly) on qtwebkit, except: - if the package depends on kdelibs and it doesn't use the libkdewebkit.so library, - if the package depends on python{,2}-pyqt4 and it doesn't use the QtWebKit module. What should be done: - If the package can be updated to Qt 5, do so. - Otherwise, if QtWebKit is an optional dependency, build without it. - Otherwise, consider removing the package, especially if it's a browser. Updated packages can go straight to extra/community. If nothing can be done right now, mark the package as completed anyway. We'll be evaluating the situation again after this TODO is through. 34 0 Complete
Phasing out gstreamer0.10 2017-01-20 Balló György GStreamer 0.10 has been unmaintained for quite a while, [1] and some CVEs have accumulated. [2] The last release was in 2012. Applications should use GStreamer 1 now. To protect our users, we try to get rid from the following packages: gstreamer0.10, gstreamer0.10-base, gstreamer0.10-bad, gstreamer0.10-bad-plugins, gstreamer0.10-base-plugins, gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, gstreamer0.10-good, gstreamer0.10-good-plugins, gstreamer0.10-mm, gstreamer0.10-python, gstreamer0.10-ugly, gstreamer0.10-ugly-plugins, perl-gstreamer, perl-gstreamer-interfaces This TODO contains a list of packages which depend (directly or indirectly) on gstreamer0.10. - If the package can be updated to GStreamer 1, do so. - Otherwise, if GStreamer is an optional dependency, build without it. - Otherwise, remove the package. Updated packages can go straight to extra/community. [1] https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/gstreamer-announce/2013-March/000273.html [2] https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/52335 24 0 Complete
