Bug#991754: SpeechSynthesisVoice.lang is incorrect

Package: firefox
Version: 88.0.1-1

Run the following code:

voices[0].lang;

This returns something like:

"sk-STEPH3"

which is not a correct language code, and breaks language matching against
e.g. navigator.languages.

Bug#968484: wireshark hard-wired to libsystemd0?

2020-11-11 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
Due to this issue, I've just spent 40 minutes of my life determining
Wireshark's dependencies and compiling it from source.  In case it helps:

  - use Wireshark 3.2.8, not the latest stable;
  - you don't need to install, Wireshark works fine from the build directory.

I do feel some nostalgia for the olden times, when using Debian still
meant you could request a package and get the dependencies resolved
automatically.

> Why on earth would a network traffic analyzer depend on system init?

If you maintain any sort of free software nowadays, you'll spend
a non-negligible amount of time summarily closing pull requests that add
a gratuitious dependency on libsystemd.  It's not a conspiracy, the kids
doing that act in good faith, they really mean to help improve the ecosystem.

My situation is somewhat unusal -- I'm streaming from a local server that
acts as a proxy, so I want to minimise prefetching (to avoid using up
server resources).  I doubt that the default configuration will suit me,
but that's okay.

What's not okay is that with older versions, I could simply tell my users
to run mpv with "--cache no".  With the new version, I'm going to have to
ship a script.

This is completely unintuitive, and undocumented.  From the manual page:

   --cache=
  Set the size of the cache in kilobytes, disable it with  no,  or
  automatically  enable  it  if  needed with auto (default: auto).

Are you seriously suggesting that whoever disagrees with you should switch

Look, Didier, this is clearly a spurious dependency.  There is no reason
why I should need to install systemd just so I get install a binary.

This can be achieved in many ways, including splitting the package, or
replacing a Depends with a Recommends somewhere.  Please be so kind as to

Bug#832481: Please remove "local stratum 10" from default config file

2016-07-27 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
>> When run on a node with no RTC, this line causes chrony to disrupt the
>> other nodes until the node manages to synchronise with a network node.

> Could you please describe what kind of disruptions you’re seeing?

Our Internet gateway synchronised with the NTP pool.  There are a number
of nodes that are clients of the gateway and they all peer with each
other.  As expected from Murphy's Law, the node with the least stable
clock (massive amounts of jitter) is running Jessie.

When the Internet connection goes down, the node with the unstable clock
declares itself as a stratum 10 server, and the nodes with stable clocks
get jittery time while claiming NTP sync (in the status field of the
adjtimex system call).

This is fixed by a one-line change to the configuration, granted, but
since this default is unexpected, it took me a while to find where the
issue came from.  (Je ne t'en veux pas trop, mais ne recommence pas ;-)

>> I suggest commenting it out in the default configuration.

Bug#767043: ESS should not depend on R

2014-10-28 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
severity 767043 minor
thanks

 The vast majority of users of ESS deploy it with R, and expect M-x R to work.

AFAIK, that's what Recommends is for -- install by default, don't prevent
uninstallation.  (The rare user who knows about --no-install-recommends
probably knows what he's doing.)

 the minor inconvenience you experience via the forced install of
 r-base-core.

Fair enough.

 Norbert, there are three font packages that are very useful when you're

Bug#754513: ITP: libressl -- SSL library, forked from OpenSSL

2014-07-14 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
 I would like to make it co-installable with OpenSSL, but in general,
 this should be a drop-in replacement until APIs really diverge in a
 visible way. Yes, it would provide 'openssl', but I intend to place them
 into a different directory, so you might have to use LD_PATH to get
 them.

That reminds me of what we were trying to do with Xaw in the late 1990s.
Short story -- we tried and we failed.  I wish you better luck, but I fear
that you're setting on a course that will bring you a lot of pain.

In the late 1990s, the only widget set that was free, usable and vendor-
neutral was Xaw , which was fairly functional but whose appearance was
already somewhat dated.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X_Athena_Widgets

There were two drop in libraries that were meant to provide binary
compatibility with Xaw but with a more pleasant appearance, called Xaw3d
and (I think) NextAw.  Branden Robinson's plan was to allow the user to
select the appearance by setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point at one or the
other of the Xaw libraries.

It worked reasonably well as long as the user was just using the sample
applications provided with X.  However, real applications would sometimes
subclass widgets, which would cause them to crash unpredictably.  Whenever
we got a crash report against an Xaw application, the first question was
does unsetting LD_LIBRARY_PATH fix it?.

After XFree86 changed the Xaw ABI with Xaw6, Branden finally gave up, and
agreed to make Xaw3d an independent library that applications could link
against rather than a drop-in replacement.  Then Xaw got obsoleted by Gtk+,
and the point became moot.

History does not necessarily repeat itself, of course.  Thanks for
listening to an old man's story.

2014-06-30 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
Package: systemd
Version: 204-8

After a recent upgrade, the power button on my laptop stopped doing
anything useful.

It turned out that a recent upgrade had installed systemd, but without
replacing init with it.  The powerbtn-acpi-support.sh script was detecting
a running systemd-logind, and therefore doing nothing.

Folks, I understand that you're excited about systemd, but this sort of
stealthy pulling in of code is something that really pisses people off.
If I'd rather not be running 15 lines of code as pid 1, please respect
my wishes.

2014-06-09 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
Package: org-mode
Version: 8.2.5h-2

When org-mime-library is set to semi, org-mime generates a spurious
alternative section around the HTML part.  This is due to two bugs in
the function org-mime-multipart:

1. it attempts to put a multipart/alternative section around the HTML,
   where it should be putting a multipart/related part;

2. it tests for the presence of images by doing (when images ...), which
   triggers when images is the empty string (somebody has been programming
   in Python or Javascript?).

To repeat:

  M-x load-library org-mime RET
  M-: (setq org-mime-library 'semi) RET
  M-x wl RET
  w

Then insert some text below the separator line, and do

  M-x org-mime-htmlize

and see the breakage.

Bug#750094: Misleading warning

2014-06-04 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
Hi Daniel, nice to meet you.

 |1| Note that the security level of the Diffie-Hellman key exchange
 has been lowered to 256 bits and this may allow decryption of the
 session data

 0) a warning that the configuration has lowered the DH key exchange
 strength and may cause weakness (what we're seeing here) -- Juliusz, can
 you propose an alternate text for this warning?

  Note that the current configuration of either gnutls or your client
  software allows Diffie-Hellman key exchange to succeed with as little as
  256 bits, which is not enough to guarantee a reasonable level of
  security.  Please reconfigure gnutls or your client software with a more
  reasonable value (at least 1024, preferably 2048 or more).

Please tweak the values at will, I'm not a crypto specialist.

 1) a warning in the _gnutls_audit_log when the dh bits is *actually*
 lower than whatever cutoff we deem to be absurdly unacceptable.

Yes, that would be helpful.

 I worry a little bit about either warning, mainly because it seems to
 imply that anything higher than 512 bits *won't* allow decryption of the
 session data, which probably isn't the case for, say, a 513-bit group :P

Very true, hence the at least 1024, prerefably 2048 or more in the
suggested message above.

Try the following:

It prints the following warning:

  |1| Note that the security level of the Diffie-Hellman key exchange
  has been lowered to 256 bits and this may allow decryption of the

This warning is printed before any TLS negotiation happens, so it does not
reflect the parameters that were actually negotiated.  The wording should
be changed in order to make it clear that the actual negotiated parameters
might be different.

Version: 2.0.7
Severity: wishlist

Hi,

Debian packages that install Elisp code appear not to notify package.el,
the package manager included with Emacs 24.  The result is that
installing an Emacs package that has its dependencies satisfied by
a Debian package causes a download of another version of the package.

Ideally, Debian packages that install code that is in ELPA or MELPA
should ensure that package.el doesn't attempt to redownload the code,
while at the same time making it possible to download a newer version
through package.el.

Note that the Ruby and Python package systems (Gem and Pip, respectively),
behave as suggested above.  Ruby Gem allows installing packages as
root (don't know about an ordinary user), and will refuse to uninstall
a package installed through dpkg.  Pip, on the other hand, will
happily break Debian packages, but this is easily worked around by
running Pip as an ordinary user.

Bug#747664: julia--get-object breaks because of mapcan

2014-05-12 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
 (eval-when-compile
   (require 'cl)); in Emacs = 23.x for (mapcan .)

I'm not sure that's enough.  Mapcan is a DEFSUBST for cl-mapcan,
which itself is an ordinary DEFUN in cl-extra.  So unless you require
cl-extra at runtime, you're still going to get an undefined function.
(You won't see the issue in interpreted code.)

I would suggest that you avoid the overhead of loading cl or cl-extra
by rewriting

  (mapcan (lambda ...) list)

as

  (apply #'nconc (mapcar (lambda ...) list))

2014-05-10 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
Package: ess
Version: 13.09-1-1

Typing TAB in an iESS buffer in Julia mode sometimes breaks because
mapcan is not defined.  A simple workaround is to (load 'cl), but it
would perhaps be better to use nconc(mapcar) instead.

Bug#700767: polipo: no limit in the amount of on-disk cache by default

2014-04-15 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
tags 700767 +wontfix
thanks

 there is no limit in the amount of on-disk cache (/var/cache/polipo).

Polipo does not maintain an index of the on-disk cache, which is what
allows it to scale to absolutely huge on-disk caches with no slowdown.
Unfortunately, this means that it doesn't know the size of the on-disk
cache, and hence cannot limit its size.

The workaround is to have a cron job that prunes the cache periodically;
unfortunately this does not solve the issues you're having with large
files increasing the size of your cache temporarily.

Marking wontfix.

tags 655852 +wontfix
thanks

 With polipo, even with logLevel=0xff there doesn't seem to be any
 sort of query and/or fetch logging output

This is deliberate -- Polipo's upstream author doesn't want to
encourage you to spy on your users.  He believes that logging every
request going through the proxy is an intolerable invasion of users'
privacy, and that a competent administrator should be able to work out
issues without the need for such extensive logging.

Bug#736081: Won't authenticate over STARTTLS without AUTH_CLIENT_ALLOW_NOTLS_PASSWORDS

2014-01-19 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
Package: exim4-daemon-light
Version: 4.82-3

Smarthost requires STARTTLS and PLAIN login -- therefore the
connection is authenticated.  A default install refuses to authenticate:

However, this should not be needed, since the connection is protected
by TLS.

Bug#735765: IMAP: WL calls STATUS on selected folder

2014-01-19 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
Hi David,

Please note the changed CC (so that the Debian ticket gets your replies).

 This bug is indeed fixed in the branch heimkehr in WL's
 repository. This branch also contains an improved IMAP search courtesy
 of Erik Hetzner.

 The fix for the IMAP SELECT bug required more than the commits you
 mentioned.

Noted.

 (1) elmo-folder-close doesn't unselect the IMAP folder;
 (2) elmo-folder-status-plugged doesn't treat the selected folder specially.

 WL has to keep track of EXIST and RECENT server responses for the
 selected mailbox (MUST per RFC3501, 7.3) and use these values when
 queried for the status of a selected mailbox. This fixes (2) and makes
 a fix for (1) unnecessary. Fixing this bug required some additional
 changes to WL's drafting algorithms.

Yes, that's way better -- avoiding deselecting the read mailbox should
be faster, at least with some servers.

 I think the easiest way to solve this issue would a merge from
 'heimkehr' to 'master'.

Are you going to do that?

Thanks for your reply,

-- Juliusz

Bug#736081: Won't authenticate over STARTTLS without AUTH_CLIENT_ALLOW_NOTLS_PASSWORDS

2014-01-19 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
 You seem to be quoting two different outputs, one with and and one
 without debugging info.

I've just sent the relevant excerpts.

 Please show the debugging output with and without
 AUTH_CLIENT_ALLOW_NOTLS_PASSWORDS (take care to remove
 username/password from the output)

If there's anything particular in the debug output, I'll be glad to
send you the info.  On the other hand, I'd rather not spend time
anonymising the full output.

 Also is there a reason why you say x.x.x.x instead of showing the IP
 address? Did you customize the authenticator?

No, I didn't customise anything.

I'm not the only person having this issue -- see

Bug#735765: IMAP: WL calls STATUS on selected folder

2014-01-17 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
Package: wl-beta
Version: 2.15.9+0.20130701-2

If you select a folder, then press q and return to the summary buffer,
then press s to update the unread message count, the message count of
the selected folder is not updated:

  [18:41:14] - elmo-imap444 status INBOX (recent unseen messages uidnext)
  [18:41:14] - * STATUS INBOX (MESSAGES 4867 RECENT 0 UIDNEXT 13582 UNSEEN 0)
  [18:41:14] - elmo-imap444 OK [CLIENTBUG] Status on selected mailbox 
completed.

This is issues #5 and #39 on http://github.com/wanderlust/wanderlust

I believe that this is due to the combination of two bugs:

  (1) elmo-folder-close doesn't unselect the IMAP folder;
  (2) elmo-folder-status-plugged doesn't treat the selected folder specially.

Bug (1) appears to be fixed by the following series of commits of branch
heimkehr of the github repository:

  0a41abf 4d0efc9 70db4e1 fd55794

I don't know of a fix for bug (2).

reopen 728621
thanks

  Using Emacs 24, org-wl gets loaded from the version of Org-mode
  included with Emacs:
  
(locate-library org-wl)
/usr/share/emacs/24.3/lisp/org/org-wl.elc
(locate-library org)
/usr/share/emacs24/site-lisp/org-mode/org.elc

 this is not a bug: org-wl.el is in contrib/, and the README.Debian
 does clearly mention how to enable contributed extensions.

Yes, it does.  Still, the fact that the default setup is incorrect
indicates a bug.

 If you don't do that, then the org-wl library shipped with emacs24 is
 used instead, as it should be.

Shouldn't the Debian package get these things set up for me
automatically?  If I wanted to do the setup manually, I'd be using the
upstream version.

retitle 728621 Org-mode contrib: default behaviour inconsistent with emacs24
thanks

   These contributions are not part of GNU Emacs or of the official
   Org-mode package. But the git repository for Org-mode is glad to
   provide useful way to distribute and develop them as long as they
   are distributed under a free software license.
 
 I follow the same philosophy and do not make them available by
 default. I am not about for force those non-official modules on
 users that want plain org-mode; especially when enabling them is
 easy and well-documented.

Ok, but then the behaviour should be consistent with the emacs24
package, which does make org-wl available by default:

  $ emacs -q --batch --eval '(message %s (locate-library org-wl))'
  [...]
  /usr/share/emacs/24.3/lisp/org/org-wl.elc

Done.

Bug#696531: Power saving regression on Sandy Bridge

2012-12-25 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
 On Dell Latitude E6220 (Sandy Bridge i5-2520M, integrated graphics),
 power saving stops working after some time.  The symptoms are that idle
 power consumption goes from 7W to 28W (!), and Powertop reports that PC7
 is never entered.  A reliable way to reproduce it is to suspend the
 laptop, but it sometimes happens spontaneously.

 I expect that
 we'll have to wait for a backported bug fix in the 3.7.y stable series.

It looks like it's fixed in linux-image-3.7-trunk-amd64 version
3.7.1-1~experimental.1 -- at least I couldn't reproduce it in five minutes'
testing.

(Now somebody is tweaking my cpufreq parameters whenver I unplug the cord,

Bug#683846: RFP: cedilla

2012-08-04 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

Cedilla is a plain text formatter with good support for the
Latin-Greek-Cyrillic subset of Unicode and that generates extremely
compact PostScript.

  http://www.pps.univ-paris-diderot.fr/~jch/software/cedilla/

There used to be a Cedilla package, but at some point the maintainer
lost interest and dropped the package (without even bothering to send
a friendly note to upstream, but that's a different issue).

  http://bugs.debian.org/610903

A year and a half later, there is still no suitable alternative in
Debian.  gnome-u2ps pulls in half the universe (and doesn't even work if
only its dependencies are installed), while paps generates bitmaps.

  http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2011/01/msg00747.html

Cedilla is now maintained in a Git repository, and the latest version
runs under recent Debian with no tweaks; this should make packaging
easy.  I would be very grateful if some good soul could adopt Cedilla.

Bug#633422: chrony: Should add hooks in /etc/pm/sleep.d

2012-07-07 Thread Juliusz Chroboczek
 Please don't.  Chrony will recover fine after sleep, and restarting
 chrony on every sleep is a horrible idea.

 What harm does it do?  I have no way of testing it.

It will discard chrony's data about clock skew, and make all servers
unsynchronised.  (There's no reason why chrony's data about servers
should suddenly become invalid after a sleep, and if it does, chrony
will recover from incorrect data quite as speedily as it will recover
from no data.)

 Quite the opposite -- the APM hooks should be removed.

 They were placed there on the instruction of the apmd maintainer.

I assume he's competent with the NTP protocol, then?  If he has good
reasons for that, I'd be keen to learn from him.
