I'm not sure, but building an additional binary package from the
same source package might be OK for bpo. Of course, d/control

Remove python-social-auth?

2019-02-11 Thread W. Martin Borgert

Hi,

I like to make python-social-auth a transitional package which
installs social-auth-core and social-auth-app-django. Which is
practically the new project by upstream. Or just remove it?
We don't want python-social-auth in buster, do we?

OK, I'll upload web.py without Python 2 support then.
If someone has strong interest in rebuildd, they has to make a
Python 3 version anyway. If the package is not in buster, there
can still be a backport.

I wonder, whether it's easier to wait for buster and then create an
orange backport? I'm sure, immediately after release, we (= Python

new versions of matplotlib and friends, as well as orange, might be

policy (12.3) says, that putting the contents of package-doc

/usr/share/doc/package-doc/. debhelper detects the Python 2
package as main package. One can override this to the path for
the Python 3 package, but both feels wrong to me. Even if we

This is my point: I'm too lazy and too old to find out for every

out which version, if any, is installed on my system, whether
the software complies with the DFSG, etc.

I expect Debian maintainers to forward bugs to upstream, if they
assume, that the bug is not introduced by them. (For some highly
complex software, like Gnome or KDE, this is not practical, but
for many packages this should work.)

I usually start to use software, when it arrives in Debian.
Or I package it. If there is some snap or other third party
package, I'm unsure how to work with it:

How to install? How to uninstall? How to report bugs and to
whom? How to download the source code and rebuild it? Is it
DFSG-free anyway? (Does it already build reproducible?)

There is nothing wrong with having snap or other packages
available, but I'm not their target audience. But I'm an Emacs

Re: DEP 8: Gathering Django usage analytics

Quoting Barry Warsaw :

I'd love to know if there's a Debian-wide policy on such things.  E.g. if
"opt-out with informed user consent" was an official policy that we could
clearly point to and reference, it would greatly help provide  
guidance to both

Debian maintainers and upstreams.


In the issue at github someone already points out that popcon is "opt-in"
and I'm sure, that the overwhelming majority in Debian is in favour of it
in contrast to "opt-out". I can understand, that upstream would prefer
the latter, but Debian has a reputation for taking privacy issues very
serious and likes to keep it. Not sure about any policy on this, though.
If Django implements usage analytics, I would strongly suggest to make it
"opt-in" in Debian, just as popcon, not "opt-out".

conflicting packages python-pysocks and python-socksipy

2016-01-04 Thread W. Martin Borgert
Hi,

TLDR: Both are the same, providing the "socks" module. We should
remove one of them. Maybe renaming the other to python-socks.

Longer story: Recently, I upgraded the outdated python-socksipy
package. This involved following a new upstream. Later I was
informed, that the new upstream was already packaged under the
name python-pysocks.

Questions:

 - shall we remove one of the package?
   (proposal: yes)
 - which of the two packages should be removed from Debian?
   (proposal: remove pysocks, just because socksipy is older)
 - shall the other package provide dummy transitional packages?
   (proposal: yes)
 - shall we rename the binary package to python-socks?
   (proposal: yes)

Any ideas or opinions?

Christoph, can you confirm that upstream moved from bitbucket to
github? Seems to be here:

Just to confuse me further, there is another, older project with

team vs individual as maintainer (was: radical changes)

2015-10-07 Thread W. Martin Borgert

Quoting Piotr Ożarowski :

I assume you all like other ideas, like no team in Maintainer, right?


To me, "team maintenance" would mean, that the team appears in the
"Maintainer" field. In "Uploaders" it doesn't make sense, so where
would the team appear?

Personally, I prefer to have the team in "Maintainer" to encourage
others to intervent.

How about leaving it as is? I.e. people in the team decide what is
more appropriate for a package?

Cheers

Fortunately, Debian has now a current jQuery 1, again. And
jQuery 3 in experimental. Thanks to Antonio Terceiro! Bootstrap
is a recent version anyway. So it should be easy to just use
Debians packages.

I'm not sure about this, but it looks like the Bokeh source is a
huge directory of coffeescript files, while the resulting
bokeh.js is not the source code. So build is: 1. coffee -> js
2. concat all js. Maybe its possible without grunt, just like
Antonio did with jQuery?

I would just leave out the tests for now. Bokeh is a huge beast

In some cases (don't ask me which ones) Debian changes package
names on fundamental changes, e.g. from python-simpy to
python-simpy3. This allows to update simpy without sudden or
unexptected breakage of current packages or even locally
installed software. There is no accidental upgrade path.

OTOH, I'm not sure whether this effort would be justified in
this case. Comments?

Remove Python 3 version of module to fix RC bug? (python-exif)

2015-01-25 Thread W. Martin Borgert
I just now don't have the time to look at bug #775609
(python3-exif doesn't work, RC). If nobody steps in, I would
upload a new package w/o Python 3 support for jessie.

Wheezy hat python-exif, but not python3-exif, so there is no
regression for users of wheezy.

Anyway, upstream made a new release with Python 3 fixed, so
I would package this right after Jessie release and provide
a backport.

Questions:

 - is removing the Python 3 package the right thing to do?
 - how to do this? just remove it from debian/control?

Thanks in advance!

(If somebody has time to really fix the bug, this would be
very much appreciated, of course!)

 Hell, we shouldn't even introduce a module unless it has an app using
 it.

I tend to disagree here (slightly). Too me, it is very important,
that Debian is a perfect platform for different applications,
even if not packaged for Debian. E.g. Debian contains all
libraries and Python modules needed for an application my
company does. I heard the same from OpenERP developers. They use
Ubuntu and Debian and find it very useful, that everything they
need is available, be it a Python module or nginx.

If there were Python modules missing, it would make Debian a less
usable tool for us and probably many others. Using virtualenv and
pip to play with a new module is nice, but not necessarily an
option for serious application development, e.g. because you have
to think how to deploy the application later. That's why I want to
see all useful Python modules in Debian, even if no Debian
package uses them. If somebody files an ITP or RFP, they know,
what it is good for :~)

To me, having Debian packages of Python modules does not only mean
the package is available via apt-get instead of pip. It does also
mean, that at least one Debian maintainer looked at the usability
and maybe quality of the code, that DD and FTP masters accepted
the license, that I have the same bug tracker available for the
Python module, web server and kernel. Debian packages are checked
by others, whether one can still build and install them, etc.

That is maybe my problem with pip: Developers tend to use every Python

generally have to think about deployment and this means: Use Debian
stable and backports! Only for long-term projects the next Debian
stable release might be relevant. But if you have a dozen or so
libraries installed by pip, there are libraries that will not be
packaged for Debian and the deployment is wrecked.

I'd keep full package in master package and strip slave to required
files only. I wonder that will happen with shared files if you install
trac-bitten + trac-bitten-slave and then remove slave? Is Debian smart
enough to detect that these files are still belong to another package?


Files always belong to one package only. That's why I suggested
to put commonly used files into the slave package and let the
trac-bitten package depend on trac-bitten-slave. Alternatively,
common files could be in a trac-bitten-common package and both
master and slave depend on it. But in this specific case there
is no advantage in a third package.

Just change debian/control (I just checked in my working copy,
see r7647). However, one has to have one or two install files
in the debian directory. These determine, which files will go
into which package.

Note: Because master and slave use some Python files in common,
you need these files either in a third package
(trac-bitten-common) or we just keep these files in the slave
package. This only means, that on the master machine also a
slave must be installed, which doesn't hurt size-wise.

Does that mean that I need to figure out why tarball was repacked and
manually repack it again with the same changes to do new release?


In this case the maintainer (I) was too lazy/sloppy/whatever
to document it properly or add a debian/rules target to do
the repacking. In this case, the SWF files of bitten were
removed, because they are non-free. See debian/changelog.

Trac upgrade documentation (was: jQuery dependency for Trac 0.11)

2009-12-29 Thread W. Martin Borgert

Quoting anatoly techtonik techto...@gmail.com:

That's not sufficient. To update Trac environment you will need to run
trac-admin upgrade and optionally trac-admin wiki upgrade. The
second point is that web-servers (including Apache) treat symlinks
differently and I am unsure how to setup web permissions correctly if
symlinks lead outside of your environment.


I really have to check my setup. I'm using Apache (and WSGI).
Probably I allowed Apache explicitly to access certain paths.

Changing the semantics of the trac-admin deploy command is
something that I would prefer to be done by upstream. For
Debian it sounds like documenting the issue well, so that
people know, what they have to expect.

There is an open bug report anyway, that suggests and
trac-admin upgrade to be done automatically on every
upgrade of Trac. This is technically too difficult to solve,
because one never knows which environments exist (they
might not even be available at package upgrade time). Again,
this is sth. that should be documented clearly.

Re: jQuery dependency for Trac 0.11 should be 1.3

Quoting anatoly techtonik techto...@gmail.com:

Then we should also patch trac-admin deploy command so that it
create symlinks to static resources instead of copies to update user
environments to latest jQuery automaically.


I don't remember, I ever used trac-admin deploy, and I wonder how
useful it is. It saves you from creating one symlink and creating
one WSGI file of typically about ten lines, right?

Maybe it's sufficient to change the documentation of the deploy
command in README.Debian? Like:

If you prefer copies (which are not updated automatically, even
in case of security issues), use trac-admin deploy, if you
prefer links, use the following commands:

$ cp /usr/share/doc/trac/examples/foo.wsgi /my/trac/env/cgi-bin/
$ vi /my/trac/env/cgi-bin/foo.wsgi # adjust trac env directory
$ ln -s /usr/share/pyshared/trac/htdocs /my/trac/env/


So, if a package is listed in Recommends: section it is installed
automatically by command line aptitude install trac? Didn't know
that.


Both aptitude and apt-get install Recommends by default. This can
be switched off, but most users don't know that, fortunately :~)

If
you see jquery.js file inside of its source package - why not to leave
it alone - where is the Policy that requires to replace it with some
external copy?


In general, Debian puts a lot of work into finding and removing
embedded code copies. Sometimes, this is not possible, e.g. if
upstream makes incompatible changes.


The maintenance work in this
case creates more problems than benefits and may be not as
appreciated.


It would be helpful, if you could state the exact problems you
had because of the newer jQuery.


What make people think that Trac developers won't release a new
version when such important security problem arise?


Currently, 58 packages in Debian depends on jQuery. It makes
huge difference, if Debian has to update one package or 58.


It is not necessary to do the extra job of removing jQuery liver from
the Trac body at all. The only advantage I see are security patches.
Anything else?


Security is only an example. Any kind of error is relevant.

Is it possible to create symlink on a symlink?
(I am on windows right now - can't test)


Yes.


That's true. Trac was designed to work even without JavaScript, but
Trac plugins are written by community and people often assume that
jQuery is available.


That's why the Debian Trac package recommends jQuery. In the
default case, it is installed automatically, but you can
explicitly say no, if you want to.


That makes sense, but they could not at the moment if I understand
correctly? It will require splitting libjs-jquery into libjs-jquery12
and libjs-jquery13 - is that right?


Yes, exactly.


Now I still have
AccountManager named urwid in Trac Admin panel, but I do not even
want to repeat this awful SSH experience.


I have the same problem (wrong Python package names as names of
Trac plugins in the admin panel) sometimes, but I don't know what
the cause is. Any idea? (But I don't think, it's in any way
related to JavaScript nor jQuery...)

Quoting anatoly techtonik techto...@gmail.com:

There are more than 200 plugins tagged for 0.11 on
http://trac-hacks.org/ They were developed and debugged with jQuery
1.2.x which is not forward compatible with 1.3.x


Most Trac plugins do not use JavaScript, even less use jQuery.


I don't feel like I
want to check if they are compatible next time I'd like to use one.
15kBytes doesn't worth wasted hours.


The issue is not 15 kB, but the problems Debian would have if an
error must be fixed in jQuery (e.g. a security problem). Currently,
around 58 packages depend on jQuery. In theory, each of them must
have their own copy. Trac does not even depend on jQuery, but only
recommends it, because Trac itself does not need jQuery.


The best solution would be to remove 15_remove_jquery_file.dpatch,
postinst, prerm and let Trac developers ship the version that
contributes to the official API for Trac extension developers for a
given Trac release.


If it is really important to have jQuery 1.2 around, the best way
would be to ask for a libjs-jquery-1.2 package and let Trac
recommend this package instead of libjs-jquery.

Anatoly, please file an ITP or RFP bug against the WNPP[1]
pseudo-package about libjs-jquery-1.2, OK? Set the maintainer of
libjs-jquery in Cc, maybe they will package 1.2 as well. I will
change the dependencies in Trac etc. as soon as the package is in.

This would be only possible, if Debian would ship a libjs-jquery-1.2

Which plugins exactly do not work with jQuery 1.3?
How much effort would it take to make them compatible with 1.3?

 Presumably all these are created by upstream ‘setup.py’ settings, so it

The maintainer can patch the setup.py file in the meantime or in

sorry for bringing up this again: Is it OK to put Trac into

not fitting in a specific Trac version...), so this is
application stuff, not library/module.
