Reproducible builds folks: Reproducible Builds: week 85 in Stretch cycle

What happened in the Reproducible Builds effort between Sunday December 4 and Saturday December 10 2016: Toolchain development and fixes Anders Kaseorg opened a pull request to asciidoc upstream, to make it generate reproducible documentation. (#782294) Bugs filed Chris Lamb: Clint Adams: Dafydd Harries: Robbie Harwood: Valerie R Young: Reviews of unreproducible packages 47 package reviews have been added, 84 have been updated and 3 have been removed in this week, adding to our knowledge about identified issues. 1 new issue type has been added: lessc_captures_build_path Weekly QA work During our reproducibility testing, some FTBFS bugs have been detected and reported by: diffoscope development Chris Lamb fixed a division-by-zero in the progress bar, split out trydiffoscope into a separate package, and made some performance enhancements. Maria Glukhova fixed build issues with Python 3.4 strip-nondeterminism development Anders Kaseorg added support for .par files, by allowing them to be treated as Zip archives; and Chris Lamb improved some documentation. reprotest development Ximin Luo added the ability to vary the build time using faketime, as well as other code quality improvements and cleanups. He also discovered a little-known fact about faketime - that it also modifies filesystem timestamps by default. He submitted a PR to libfaketime upstream to improve the documentation on this, which was quickly accepted, and also disabled this feature in reprotest's own usage of faketime. buildinfo.debian.net development There was further work on buildinfo.debian.net code. Chris Lamb added support for buildinfo format 0.2 and made rejection notices clearer; and Emanuel Bronshtein fixed some links to use HTTPS. Misc. This week's edition was written by Ximin Luo and reviewed by a bunch of Reproducible Builds folks on IRC and via email.

Reproducible builds folks: Reproducible Builds: week 77 in Stretch cycle

What happened in the Reproducible Builds effort between Sunday October 9 and Saturday October 15 2016: Media coverage Documentation update After discussions with HW42, Steven Chamberlain, Vagrant Cascadian, Daniel Shahaf, Christopher Berg, Daniel Kahn Gillmor and others, Ximin Luo has started writing up more concrete and detailed design plans for setting SOURCE_ROOT_DIR for reproducible debugging symbols, buildinfo security semantics and buildinfo security infrastructure. Toolchain development and fixes Dmitry Shachnev noted that our patch for #831779 has been temporarily rejected by docutils upstream; we are trying to persuade them again. Tony Mancill uploaded javatools/0.59 to unstable containing original patch by Chris Lamb. This fixed an issue where documentation Recommends: substvars would not be reproducible. Ximin Luo filed bug 77985 to GCC as a pre-requisite for future patches to make debugging symbols reproducible. Packages reviewed and fixed, and bugs filed The following updated packages have become reproducible - in our current test setup - after being fixed: The following updated packages appear to be reproducible now, for reasons we were not able to figure out. (Relevant changelogs did not mention reproducible builds.) Some uploads have addressed some reproducibility issues, but not all of them: Some uploads have addressed nearly all reproducibility issues, except for build path issues: Patches submitted that have not made their way to the archive yet: Reviews of unreproducible packages 101 package reviews have been added, 49 have been updated and 4 have been removed in this week, adding to our knowledge about identified issues. 3 issue types have been updated: Weekly QA work During of reproducibility testing, some FTBFS bugs have been detected and reported by: tests.reproducible-builds.org Debian: Openwrt/LEDE/NetBSD/coreboot/Fedora/archlinux: Misc. We are running a poll to find a good time for an IRC meeting. This week's edition was written by Ximin Luo, Holger Levsen & Chris Lamb and reviewed by a bunch of Reproducible Builds folks on IRC.

Raphaël Hertzog: My Free Software Activities in December 2012

This is my monthly summary of my free software related activities. If you re among the people who made a donation to support my work (836.78 , thanks everybody!), then you can learn how I spent your money. Otherwise it s just an interesting status update on my various projects. Debian Packaging I uploaded Zim 0.58, WordPress 3.5 (and I had to file a ticket about the availability of sources of minified javascript files again) and another security update for python-django (696535). Speaking of python-django, I forwarded one bug report of Anders Kaseorg concerning Django s bash completion (#695811). I also sponsored the upload of ledgersmb 1.3.25-1. Other Debian work I contributed some patches to improve debian-installer support in live-build. I also added a work-around for bug #652946 in live-installer and committed a fix for this same bug in a jessie branch of partman-target. I also prepared a bugfix for a counter-productive behavior of choose-mirror (#695261, it was not possible to override the codename of the release to install via preseed if you install from a CD with a full base system). I discovered an oddity in the Packages.diff/Index file for the architectures armhf and s390x, I reported it to ftpmasters in #696792. (All those issues were discovered while working for a customer) Debian France I spent quite some time on Debian France this month again. I started by setting up an internal gitolite to manage our accounting/administrative documents. Then I updated galette, the web application that we are using to manage our database of members. In the process, I filed two bugs that we discovered. I immediately tested Galette by registering 4 members that joined during the former mini-Debconf in Paris. We have plans to automate the membership renewal process so we have opened a Paypal account. This month we also cleared the last steps so that I and Sylvestre Ledru have full control on the Debian France bank account. I also registered the new officers at the Tribunal d instance de Sarreguemines . Salt bug reports During the last mini-debconf, I discovered Salt (thanks to Julien Cristau!) and since I had to switch some servers of mine, I took this opportunity to upgrade to wheezy and try out salt at the same time. It took much more time than expected but the result is pleasant. The configuration of all my servers is now well documented/specified in a central Git repository, and moving services is much easier than before. In the process, I filed quite some bugs (#2865, #2851, #2866 and #2875), most of them have been fixed in the 0.11.1 release that just happened. Thanks I wish you a happy new year and all the best for 2013! See you next month for a new summary of my activities.
