Reviews of unreproducible packages
63 package reviews have been added, 73 have been updated and 41 have been removed in this week, adding to our knowledge about identified issues.
4 issue types have been added:
Weekly QA work
During our reproducibility testing, some FTBFS bugs have been detected and reported by:
- Chris Lamb (9)
- Helmut Grohne (1)
- Peter De Wachter (1)
- #845203 was fixed in git by Reiner Herrmann - the next release will be able to normalize NTFS timestamps in zip files.
- Holger updated our jenkins jobs for disorderfs and strip-nondeterminism to build these from their respective git master branches, and removed the jobs that build them from other branches since we have none at the moment.
Since the stretch freeze is getting closer, Holger made the following changes:
Schedule testing builds to be as equally-frequent as unstable, on all archs, so that testing’s build results are more up-to-date.
Adjust experimental builds scheduling frequency so that experimental results are not more recent than the ones in unstable.
Disable our APT repository for the testing suite (stretch), but leave it active for the unstable and experimental suites.
This is the repository where we uploaded patched toolchain packages from time to time, that are necessary to reproduce other packages with. Since recently, all our essential patches have been accepted into Debian stretch and this repository is currently empty. Debian stretch will soon become the next Debian stable, and we want to get an accurate impression of how many of its packages will be reproducible.
Therefore, disabling this repository for stretch whilst leaving it activated for the Debian unstable and experimental suites, allows us to continue to experiment with new patches to toolchain packages, without affecting our knowledge of the next Debian stable.
This week’s edition was written by Ximin Luo, Holger Levsen & Chris Lamb and reviewed by a bunch of Reproducible Builds folks on IRC.
