Hello Jan, or anyone else affected, Accepted python-apt into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/python- apt/1.1.0~beta1ubuntu0.16.04.9 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.
Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users. If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, what testing has been performed on the package and change the tag from verification-needed- xenial to verification-done-xenial. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification- failed-xenial. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed. Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping! N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of AIMS, which is subscribed to the bug report. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1311056 Title: [SRU] apt-add-repository adds duplicate commented/disabled source lines Status in python-apt package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in python-apt source package in Xenial: Fix Committed Status in python-apt source package in Bionic: Fix Committed Status in python-apt source package in Eoan: Fix Committed Bug description: Impact ====== Under most circumstances, the impact is minimal (a few extra redundant comment lines in apt sources. However, if users are automating source removal / addition on a machine (as in comment 11), there is the potential to wind up with an excessively large (and thus slow to parse) apt sources configuration. Test packages for the supported releases are available from the following PPA: https://launchpad.net/~waveform/+archive/ubuntu/python-apt Built from the source which can be found in the following branches: https://code.launchpad.net/~waveform/ubuntu/+source/python-apt/+git /python-apt/+ref/sru-dupe-ppa-xenial https://code.launchpad.net/~waveform/ubuntu/+source/python-apt/+git /python-apt/+ref/sru-dupe-ppa-bionic https://code.launchpad.net/~waveform/ubuntu/+source/python-apt/+git /python-apt/+ref/sru-dupe-ppa-eoan Test Case ========= * sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:deadsnakes/ppa * cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/deadsnakes*.list * Note the presence of one uncommented "deb" line, and one commented "deb-src" line * sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:deadsnakes/ppa * cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/deadsnakes*.list * Note the uncommented "deb" line is still there but the commented "deb-src" line has now been duplicated * sudo add-apt-repository ppa:waveform/python-apt * sudo apt upgrade # update python-apt to fixed version * sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:deadsnakes/ppa * cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/deadsnakes*.list * Note there has been no further duplication of the commented "deb-src" line Regression Potential ==================== Minimal; test cases have been added to cover the duplication case, and to cover the enabling of sources (which was not covered by existing tests, but was part of the code altered to fix the duplication case), and insertion of sources at a position (again, not covered by existing tests but modified as part of the fix). The test case has been used successfully on all targeted releases (xenial, bionic, and eoan).
