Build failure of postgres-xc

2013-10-06 Thread Michael Meskes

I just noticed that Postgres-XC doesn't build on S390. However, Postgresql,
which Postgres-XC is based on, builds just fine. Could anyone of you give me a
pointer where I should look or tell upstream to look? I hope you've seen
similar problems before.

Re: Results of the porter roll call (Was: Roll call for porters of architectures in sid and testing)

2013-10-06 Thread Sven Luther
Hi Niels,

I don't know upto what point you are familiar with my history and its link to 
the powerpc
port, but it pains me to see that the powerpc port is left with so few porters, 
and that it 
may mean the port being dropped. I also have not really followed the mailing 
lists since 
a long time, and don't know who is actually managing the powerpc port, but 
giving the (1) and 
0.5 remark, i guess there is not a full porter.

So given that, and provided debian may not see a problem again in me becoming 
active, i may
be interested in becoming active again as powerpc maintainer. Not sure what 
category you 
can include me in though, and what the formalities would be should i become 
active (and welcome)
in debian again.

Also, i am not really sure of the amount of time i will be able to devote to 
debian, and i will
have to take my powerpc hardware out of the storage area i put it in, but i 
guess it should be enough
to do powerpc porting work, provided other folk help me out. That said, i am 
also interested in the
powerpcspe port, as i am (slowly) working on a open-hardware Freescale P1010 
based board.

Anyway, please let me know if there is anything i can do.

 [2] By the looks of it, if sparc was replaced by sparc64, we could be
 looking at 3 in the Other-column rather than 0.
 NMs/DMs include DMs and people currently in NM process.  The Other
 column may include people who said they would like to become porters
 (but would need to be introduced to the job) and thus may imply some
 active recruiting from the current porters.  This is at least true for
 The current policy says that we require 5 developers (i.e. DDs) for
 release architectures[AP], so based on that only amd64, i386 and
 hurd-i386 would pass this requirement.  It is quite possible we need to
 revise that requirement, but most of the architectures would (still) do
 well to attract a few more (DD) porters.
   I have attached a file with my notes of who are behind those numbers.

[PATCH 2/2] deb-pkg: Add automatic support for s390x architecture

2013-10-06 Thread Ben Hutchings
The Debian s390x architecture has 64-bit userland whereas s390 has
32-bit userland.  A 64-bit kernel can be used with either.  Now that
Debian supports multiarch and officially supports s390x, it makes more
sense to assign a 64-bit kernel package to s390x.
