Debian Perl Group Micro-Sprint

DebConf 14 has started earlier today with the first two talks in sunny portland, oregon.

this year's edition of DebConf didn't feature a preceding DebCamp, & the attempts to organize a proper pkg-perl sprint were not very successful.

nevertheless, two other members of the Debian Perl Group & me met here in PDX on wednesday for our informal unofficial pkg-perl µ-sprint, & as intended, we've used the last days to work on some pkg-perl QA stuff:

  • upload packages which were waiting for Perl 5.20
  • upload packages which didn't have the Perl Group in Maintainer
  • update OpenTasks wiki page
  • update subscription to Perl packages in Ubuntu/Launchpad
  • start annual git repos cleanup
  • pkg-perl-tools: improve scripts to integrate upstream git repo
  • update alternative (build) dependencies after perl 5.20 upload
  • update Module::Build (build) dependencies

as usual, having someone to poke besides you, & the opportunity to get a second pair of eyes quickly was very beneficial. – & of course, spending time with my nice team mates is always a pleasure for me!

RC bugs 2014/13 - 2014/33

perl 5.20 got uploaded to debian unstable a few minutes ago; be prepared for some glitches when upgrading sid machines/chroots in the next days, while all 557 reverse dependencies are rebuilt via binNMUs.

how does this relate to this blog post's title? it does, since during the last weeks I was mostly trying to help with the preparation of this transition. & we managed to fix quite a few bugs while they were not bumped to serious yet, otherwise the list below would be a bit longer :)

anyway, here are the the RC bugs I've worked on in the last 20 or so weeks:

  • #711614 – src:libscriptalicious-perl: "libscriptalicious-perl: FTBFS with perl 5.18: test hang"

RC bugs 2013/49 - 2014/12

since people keep talking to me about my RC bug fixing activities, I thought it might be time again for a short report. to be honest, I mostly stopped my almost daily work at some point in december, partly because the overall number of RC bugs affecting both testing & unstable is quite low (& therefore the number of easy-to-fix bugs), due to the auto-removal policy of the release team (kudos!). – but I still kept track about RC bugs I worked on, & here's the list; as you can see, mostly pkg-perl bugs …

cowbuilder crossbuilds for raspbian

after reading waja's description on Crossbuilding Debian Packages With Sbuild (for Raspbian), I thought I'd share what I did for using cowbuilder for the same purpose.

I stumbled about these instructions for pbuilder on github recently which taught me about the nice qemu-debootstrap tool. as I didn't want a specific config file & I prefer cowbuilder over pbuilder, I "translated" the instructions to the following command:

cowbuilder --create --basepath /var/cache/pbuilder/armhf/raspbian-wheezy-base.cow \
--distribution wheezy --mirror http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ \
--components "main contrib non-free rpi" --extrapackages eatmydata \
--architecture armhf \
--debootstrap qemu-debootstrap --debootstrapopts --variant=buildd \
--debootstrapopts --keyring=/usr/share/keyrings/raspbian-archive-keyring.gpg

(after installing the raspbian-archive-keyring before)

RC bugs 2013/44

I'm getting the hang of the more or less daily RC bug fixing again. below you find what I did this week.

as a side note: as you can see, quite a few of the patches are taken from ubuntu; it's great that someone over there already took the time to come up with a fix; thanks! – not so great is that only one of them was in the BTS. guys, you have already been better at forwarding your patches to the debian BTS, please try to get back into this good habit :)
