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.

Name Creation Date Creator Description Package Count Incomplete Count Status
ppp 2.4.7 2014-08-23 Jan Steffens Rebuilds in [testing] are already done; this list is just for the eventual move. 6 0 Complete
glew 1.11 rebuild 2014-08-18 Maxime Gauduin glew 1.11 has a new soname. It's already in [extra] so please push directly in [extra] or [community], and to [staging] or [community-staging] for packages overlapping with the boost rebuild. 38 0 Complete
boost 1.56.0 rebuild 2014-08-11 Bartłomiej Piotrowski Boost Rebuild Show™ is back! This time there are some ABI and source breaking changes. More information can be found in release notes[1]. Please push rebuilt packages to [staging]. [1] http://www.boost.org/users/history/version_1_56_0.html 81 0 Complete
wxgtk no-STL rebuild 2014-08-08 Florian Pritz Rebuild against wxgtk 3.0.1-2 and push to staging. 12 0 Complete
twisted->python2-twisted rename 2014-08-02 Felix Yan The twisted package was renamed to python2-twisted as a Python 3 counterpart was added. Please update your PKGBUILD and change the dependency name to "python2-twisted". Also, if twisted was the only reason not to ship the package with Python 3, you might check "python-twisted" and give it a try. The rebuild is not in a hurry and can be postponed (same as the lzo2->lzo one), and no [staging] needed as well. 17 0 Complete
protobuf-c 1.0.0 rebuild 2014-08-01 Bartłomiej Piotrowski libprotobuf-c.so.0 → libprotobuf-c.so.1 3 0 Complete
lzo2->lzo rename 2014-07-31 Anatol Pomozov 'lzo2' package was renamed to more correct Arch name 'lzo'. Please update your PKGBUILD and change the dependency name to 'lzo'. The actual rebuild can be postponed, there is no hard deadline for it. No need to push packages to [staging], push it directly to [testing] and then [stable]. This is just dependency name change. lzo2 and lzo are ABI compatible. On a related note - some packages use version restriction for lzo dependency (e.g. lzo>2.06). The restriction can be dropped. lzo 2.08 has been in the repo for a long time and I doubt it will be downgraded. 24 0 Complete
x264/libx264 split 2014-07-26 Bartłomiej Piotrowski In order to support 10bit depth in x264, the package has been split into three standalone packages: x264 (containing CLI tools and development headers) and libx264/libx264-10bit. Please confirm whether your packages make use of command line utilities and if not, replace the dependency on x264 with libx264. Note that x264 in [staging] doesn't pull libx264 anymore. It may be also needed to put x264 explicitly in makedepends array. 12 0 Complete
openconnect 6.00 rebuild 2014-07-22 Felix Yan libopenconnect.so.2 => libopenconnect.so.3 Packages go to [staging]. 3 0 Complete

ghc 7.8.3 rebuild 2014-07-11 Thomas Dziedzic Move to staging repos. Please rebuild dependencies before rebuilding packages. 44 0 Complete
mtree rebuilds 2014-06-29 Allan McRae pacman-4.1 added mtree files to packages to enable use to verify more aspects of the packages installed on the filesystem. These packages have not been rebuilt in a long time so are missing this file. Now with all repos! Note there is no real rush for this, but it would be good to have done before pacman-4.2 is released (scheduled for August). 1075 0 Complete

giflib soname bump 2014-05-27 Jan de Groot Slight API change, comes with a soname bump. Code might require patching, as open/close functions take an integer as 2nd option now. This replaces the old GifFile->Error pointer. If no error handling is done in the software, just pass NULL here. 33 0 Complete
librevenge forces .so bumps in various libs 2014-05-25 Andreas Radke http://listarchives.documentliberation.org/www/discuss/msg00070.html Newly released librevenge required new releases with .so bumps in many libraries used by various applications dealing with documents: * libabw - not yet in our repos * libcdr /usr/lib/libcdr-0.0.so -> /usr/lib/libcdr-0.1.so * libe-book - not yet in our repos * libetonyek /usr/lib/libetonyek-0.0.so -> /usr/lib/libetonyek-0.1.so * libfreehand - not yet in our repos * libmspub /usr/lib/libmspub-0.0.so -> /usr/lib/libmspub-0.1.so * libmwaw - not yet in our repos * libodfgen /usr/lib/libodfgen-0.0.so -> /usr/lib/libodfgen-0.1.so * libvisio /usr/lib/libvisio-0.0.so -> /usr/lib/libvisio-0.1.so * libwpd /usr/lib/libwpd-0.9.so -> /usr/lib/libwpd-0.10.so * libwpg /usr/lib/libwpg-0.2.so -> /usr/lib/libwpg-0.3.so * libwps /usr/lib/libwps-0.2.so _> /usr/lib/libwps-0.3.so 14 0 Complete
Removing glib/gtk from make/optdepends 2014-05-17 Eric Bélanger We are going to remove the old glib and gtk packages from the repos [1]. Obviously, packages that require them will also be removed. This todo list is for packages which has a make/optdepends on either glib, gtk or a package that has glib/gtk in its dependency tree. Remove gtk support or patch to build without gtk if possible. Push the updated packages straight in the [extra] or [community] repos. [1]https://mailman.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2014-April/026121.html 9 0 Complete
KActivities4 2014-05-17 Andrea Scarpino IGNORE THIS: non really needed because adding it to kdebase-runtime will add it everywhere it is used. KActivities has been split between kactivities4 and libkactivities4 to allow co-instability with KF5. Packages that links to libkactivities.so.6 needs to explicitly depend upon libkactivities4. 2 0 Complete
