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.

LLVM 3.6 2015-03-06 Evangelos Foutras -> Rebuilds go in [staging]/[community-staging]/[multilib-staging]. ===== Note about the new llvm35/llvm35-libs/clang35 packages ===== These packages are meant to be used for compiling packages that haven't been ported to LLVM 3.6 yet. Such packages may depend on llvm35-libs but not on llvm35 or clang35 which aren't co-installable with the LLVM 3.6 packages. 19 0 Complete

Fix source file names 2015-03-02 Sergej Pupykin Following packages have potential file name conflicts if you use SRCDEST in makepkg.conf. Please add "$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz::" into beginning of URL. Urls like this<user>/<project>/archive/v0.4.1.tar.gz should be changed to $pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz::<user>/<project>/archive/v0.4.1.tar.gz so source will be downloaded into unique named file. Changing in svn/trunk is enough. 19 0 Complete

User/Group management 2015-02-04 Allan McRae The packages list here use userdel/groupdel to remove the user they created. These should never be removed automatically as it poses a security risk if any files are left behind with this ownership. Also, it the user/group is registered in the UID/GID database [1], files should not be chown in the install file. Instead, this should be done in the package() function using the ID number. (e.g. chown 97:97 <file>). [1] 113 0 Complete

glew 1.12 rebuilds 2015-01-29 Andreas Radke /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/ Packages go to staging. Some packages may also depend on stuff from the poppler 0.30 rebuild list - take care of the proper build order. 38 0 Complete

fc-cache 2015-01-03 Allan McRae Most packages install fonts only to the system directory so there is no need for a full cache update. So use fc-cache -s instead of fc-cache -f as it is lots faster for the same effect. 52 0 Complete
validpgpkeys integrity check 2014-12-29 Kyle Keen Makepkg (as of pacman 4.2) now verifies GPG signed files differently. They require a reference to the signer's fingerprint. Without that, makepkg's integrity check will fail. For an example of a good pkgbuild, curl has the following lines: source=("$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz"{,.asc} curlbuild.h) md5sums=('88c5650122873712296d4b1db3f12e6c' 'SKIP' '751bd433ede935c8fae727377625a8ae') validpgpkeys=('914C533DF9B2ADA2204F586D78E11C6B279D5C91') # Daniel Stenberg More details are under the 'validpgpkeys' of the pkgbuild man page. The fingerprint can be generated with gpg --fingerprint <key-identifier or user ID> This is not exactly critical, but catching it now may save some bug reports and user frustration. No rebuild is necessary, simply updating the pkgbuilds should be sufficient. The package list was generated by finding the difference between egrep -R '\.(asc|sig)' /var/abs | cut -d '/' -f 5 | sort -u and grep -R 'validpgpkeys' /var/abs | cut -d '/' -f 5 | sort -u and so may have a false positive if you recently fixed this in SVN. 275 0 Complete

Ruby 2.2 rebuild 2014-12-25 Anatol Pomozov ruby-2.2 just pushed to staging, it bumped version and all its dependencies should be rebuilt. It also changed default search path for gems (/usr/lib/ruby/gems/2.1.0/->/usr/lib/ruby/gems/2.2.0/) thus any gem-installed library should be rebuilt as well. 42 0 Complete

remove cloog/isl dependency in gcc packages 2014-11-03 Allan McRae The latest isl is incompatible with gcc. The patch we carry is a hack, and I am fairly convinced does the wrong thing. I have built gcc-4.9.2 using in tree builds of isl/cloog. This uses the latest compatible (and upstream recommended) isl/cloog versions. Check on the PKGUILD in SVN. I suggest everyone does the same. If you really want to keep the isl/cloog deps, you can have them in [community] once gcc-4.9.2 hits [core]. As an aside, why is mingw-w64-gcc-base in the repos? 6 0 Complete

Moving KDE4 translations 2014-09-27 Andrea Scarpino KDE Frameworks 5 applications will install their translations into /usr/share/locale/$LANG the same way KDE 4 applications do. Then they will conflict. See also FS#41684 for more info. To fix this, we are moving KDE 4 translations into /usr/share/locale/kde4/LANG, this is simple as rebuilding kdelibs and ALL applications using it. This is a list of packages which depend on it (directly or not), but packages that need kdelibs just to build are missing. Packages go in [staging]. Please wait for kdelibs to finish the build. 66 0 Complete

Fix "bad mtime" pyc/pyo files for python packages 2014-08-27 Felix Yan The list of packages are currently having pyc/pyo files with "bad mtime" (e.g. some/all .pyc/pyo files are older than their corresponding .py files), which was often caused by doing modification after installation. The most common case is sed'ing shebangs after calling python2 install. Please fix this by moving the needed modifications into prepare() phase. The problem is that the interpreter will refuse to load the files, which increases load time for each affected file in the package, and renders the shipped pyc/pyo files useless. A bit more background: A bug report of python2 was opened: Many thanks to Kyle so we have the tool to generate the list [1]. An old list had been put on the topic of #archlinux-tu for more than 8 months. I've generated the list again and am opening this TODO as that list is somewhat outdated as of now, and a TODO should help the progress further. [1] 51 0 Complete
