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: 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.

Holger Levsen: 20140407-some-jenkins-activities

Some activities Yesterday and today I've spent some time time on, so that it's finally only available via https, or so I thought. I quickly learned that it's better still serving via http, but only when queried from localhost :) Second, I've moved the git repo to QA group namespace on alioth and set up IRC notifications using the wonderful KGB client. There is no mailinglist which receives commit diffs yet, but thats also because it's mostly still me working on this. Though since yesterday there are now seven committers in the git history, which is two more than before: Niels Thykier submitted job configuratios for running the lintian testsuite on stable, testing and sid on every commit to the lintian git repo. The test suite passes nicely on testing and unstable but fails for stable as it needs backports and we need to make the job to install those. Gabriele Giacone submitted several patches so that soon hurd wgnu/hurd can be tested too. Currently this fails for two reasons, both of which are very temporarily: the hurd .iso image which was here this morning is gone now, and secondly I haven't installed (the locally build packages for) qemu and qemu-kvm packages with the fixes for #742386 as that .iso ain't there so this is pointless atm ;-) But I'm very happy to have a hopefully soon working job which will regularily test installation of Debian hurd and I do hope that some Debian kfreebsd enthusiasts will pick up and fix the existing jobs for kfreebsd tests. (Hint hint hint! I'm also totally happy to help with that!) This reminds me to mention one last bit: Thanks to Paul Wise, jenkins.d.n bugs are now tracked in the BTS among other Debian QA group bugs!

Cyril Brulebois: Saving Private G-I

(Disclaimer: this post is not about G.I.) Graphical installer Josselin posted his thoughts about g-i, and given at least the first parts sound doable, I m tempted to have a look at dealing with the needed udebs. Never touched anything like this before, but oh well, one learns every day. Time to learn a bit more about X11 as well. It looks like generating a new mini.iso (using d-i s trunk) wasn t that difficult, so hopefully once I m done with a few udebs, it should be possible to add them to this image and make sure those are usable, at least when loaded manually. Once that finished, gluing everything together is probably going to be another story, but hopefully that won t be impossible. Unrelated stories
