I really liked doing stuff like Zack’s RCBW in the past, but nowadays I’m busy with some buildds, reporting RC bugs because some maintainers don’t test their uploads, as well as posting patches to fix FTBFS on GNU/kFreeBSD.

But from time to time, it’s also fun to close RC bugs. Here’s a new concept (that I probably won’t reproduce as regularly as Zack and his minions, though): RCBN for Release-Critical Bugs of the Night.

Those are now closed:

  • #552862: postman: FTBFS: cgi-lib.c:238: error: conflicting types for 'getline'
  • #545621: regina-normal: FTBFS: problem linking with boost
  • #540427: jconv: Build-Depends on libc6-dev (>= 2.7)
  • #540669: kflickr: FTBFS: '.libs/libkflickrpart.so': No such file or directory
  • #554638: jconv_0.8.1-1(ia64/unstable): FTBFS: build-depnds libc6-dev
  • #527732: orpie: FTBFS: (.data+0x2c0): undefined reference to 'ml_gsl_vector_float_minmaxindex'
  • #520862: libkarma - FTBFS: /usr/bin/csc: Command not found

Many thanks to Peter Green, to Ruben Molina, and to Ilya Barygin for their patches. Special thanks to Richard Darst for orpie’s patches: he even managed to get rid of embedded code copies while addressing the FTBFS. Nice!

Unfortunately, in the same time, I had to open some FTBFS/RC bugs:

  • #559766: java3d: FTBFS on non-Linux ports
  • #559767: java3d: FTBFS on armel: install: cannot stat 'j3d-core/build/default/…'
  • #559768: java3d: FTBFS on hppa: java compilation issues
  • #559771: evolution-dev: Might be missing a Depends on libgtkhtml*-dev
  • #559781: ktoon: FTBFS with current ffmpeg
  • #559794: libfvm-dev: *LOTS* of undefined references

So, what’s next? Get back to work!
