Mike Gabriel: UBports: Packaging of Lomiri Operating Environment for Debian (part 04)

Before and during FOSDEM 2020, I agreed with the people (developers, supporters, managers) of the UBports Foundation to package the Unity8 Operating Environment for Debian. Since 27th Feb 2020, Unity8 has now become Lomiri. Things got delayed a little recently as my main developer contact on the upstream side was on sick leave for a while. Fortunately, he has now fully recovered and work is getting back on track. Recent Uploads to Debian related to Lomiri Over the past 3 months I worked on the following bits and pieces regarding Lomiri in Debian: The next projects / packages ahead are lomiri-ui-toolkit, integrating changes required for Lomiri into Ayatana Indicators and then moving on with several other, smaller packages. Credits Many big thanks go to Marius and Dalton for their work on the UBports project and being always available for questions, feedback, etc. Thanks to Florian Leeber for being my point of contact for topcis regarding my cooperation with the UBports Foundation.

Mike Gabriel: UBports: Packaging of Lomiri Operating Environment for Debian (part 03)

Before and during FOSDEM 2020, I agreed with the people (developers, supporters, managers) of the UBports Foundation to package the Unity8 Operating Environment for Debian. Since 27th Feb 2020, Unity8 has now become Lomiri. Recent Uploads to Debian related to Lomiri Over the past 4 months I worked on the following bits and pieces regarding Lomiri in Debian: The next two big projects / packages ahead are lomiri-ui-toolkit and qtmir. Credits Many big thanks go to Marius and Dalton for their work on the UBports project and being always available for questions, feedback, etc. Thanks to Ratchanan Srirattanamet for providing some of his time for debugging some non-thread safe unit tests (currently unsure, what package we actually looked at...). Thanks for Florian Leeber for being my point of contact for topcis regarding my cooperation with the UBports Foundation. Previous Posts about my Debian UBports Team Efforts

Mike Gabriel: UBports: Packaging of Lomiri Operating Environment for Debian (part 02)

Before and during FOSDEM 2020, I agreed with the people (developers, supporters, managers) of the UBports Foundation to package the Unity8 Operating Environment for Debian. Since 27th Feb 2020, Unity8 has now become Lomiri. Recent Uploads to Debian related to Lomiri Over the past 7-8 weeks the packaging progress has been slowed down due to other projects I am working on in parallel. However, quite a few things have been achieved: The packages qtsystems, qtfeedback, and qtpim are no official Qt5 components, and so I had to package Git snapshots of them; with all implicit consequences regarding ABI and API compatibilities, possibly Debian-internal library transitions, etc. Esp. packaging qtsystems was pretty tricky due to a number of failing unit tests when the package had been built in a clean chroot (like it is the case on Debian's buildd infrastructure). I learned a lot about DBus and DBus mocking while working on all those unit tests to finally pass in chrooted builds. Unfortunately, the Lomiri App Launch component still needs more work due to (finally only) one unit test (jobs-systemd) not always passing. Sometimes, the test gets stucks and then fails after having reached a time out. I'll add it to my list of those unreproducible build failures I have recently seen in several GTest related unit test scenarios. Sigh... Credits A great thanks goes to Lisandro Perez Meyer from the Debian KDE/Qt Team for providing an intro and help on Qt Debian packaging and an intro on symbols handling with C++ projects. Another big thanks goes to Dmitry Shachnev from the Debian KDE/Qt Team for doing a sponsored upload [1] of qtpim (and also a nice package review). Also a big thanks goes to Marius Gripsgard for his work on forking the first Lomiri components on the UBports upstream side. Previous Posts about my Debian UBports Team Efforts References
