[gentoo-dev] Packages up for grabs

2007-12-25 Thread Christian Heim
Okay, today was another tree-wrecking^Hcleaning day. Find below the
packages that got assigned to maintainer-needed due to no maintainer
being available.

As usual you are free to pick them up, if you'd like to maintain them...

 Dear Gentoo Devs and Users,
 
 The time has finally come for me to resign from Gentoo.  I've been
 meaning to do it for many months now, but the logistics took a little
 bit of time.  Effective Monday, Nov. 26, I will no longer consider
 myself an official Gentoo developer.  Before then I will make commits to
 two or so packages for which James Rowe is the official maintainer and I
 was his proxy.  Justin Bronder (jsbronder) has agreed to take over the
 proxy maintainership for them.
 
 I've been here a long time and I've made many many friends (and, I
 suppose, a few enemies).  For both, I'm grateful.  There are too many
 people to thank -- you all know who you are :P.

Dear Grandpa (yes, yes .. I know Neddy is even older then you!), I'd
really like to thank you for all the things you helped me with (and you
helped a lot).

I'd like to wish you all the best from the bottom of my heart for your
further adventures. Above all, have fun!

As the most of you might have already read on -core, I'm stepping back from
being the treecleaner lead. As Raul and Samuli have been discussing the issue
in a civilized manner [1], they both agreed that Samuli is taking things over.

[gentoo-dev] net-wireless/ipw3945{,d} needs your help

2007-09-09 Thread Christian Heim

As some of you may know, I'm the sole (well, seemant is supposed to help 
too :P) maintainer of the above package. The problem with it is simply that 
it's closed source (at least the regulatory daemon and the ucode).

The package itself is hopefully going away when iwl3945 is finally useable. 
Until then, this package _still_ needs someone who is willing going to 
maintain it. I already fixed most of the bugs in bugzilla, but it still needs 
some more work.

I haven't had hardware in the first place, and only took it over from Hendrik 
(brix). So unless someone steps up in the next week or so, this package is 
going to get reassigned to maintainer-needed since I absolutely have _ZERO_ 
interest in maintaining it any longer.

Regards,

   Christian

Re: [gentoo-dev] baselayout-2 LVM

 Is it *supposed* to NOT startup automatically out of the box?

 Looks like there are some emails on this list about there being only
 stubs to support LVM, etc.  I found some startup functions in
 rcscripts/addons, but nothing to actually call them at startup?  There
 is some stuff in conf.d/volumes which suggests that there is support for
 changing the scan order, but again, couldn't spot anything which used it?

Well, the scripts got phased out to the packages that actually *provide* this 
functionality.

You will basically need to remerge sys-fs/lvm2 and sys-fs/device-mapper and 
add them (/etc/init.d/device-mapper and /etc/init.d/lvm) to your boot 
runlevel.

Re: [gentoo-dev] PHP security status

 Hi,

 At the moment, we have a quite problematic situation with the php ebuilds.
 Due to various people doing research on php-issues, there has been a vast
 number of security issues in the last months (mopb and others).

 We still have 5.2.2 in the tree. A user, christian hoffmann, is maintaining
 some ebuilds in the php-experimental-overlay. They've, from what I know,
 fixed nearly all issues, beside one openbasedir-bypass, where we fail to
 find a patch (CVE-2007-3378).

 Now, chtekk has been very rarely available lately. chtekk, could you raise
 your voice and tell us if you'll be back soon or if we could merge stuff
 without you in the meantime.

As you might know from his away status (either from IRC or the devaway¹ page), 
Luca is currently doing his mandatory military service for his country till 
November iirc.

 Christian is doing a quite well job in the overlay. I'd prefer if we could
 merge his work into the main tree. I could do that, although I'd prefer to
 get some review from other devs. php is a hell to maintain I think.

I really appreciate your effort on doing gcc (and the whole lotta of other

Go ahead, I already only use no-old-linux on 20 or so systems. Just remind me 
once you do that, that I should add that flag to the hardened/x86 profile (or

2007-03-22 Thread Christian Heim


It's my pleasure to introduce to you Antoine Raillon (also known as cab), our 
latest addition joining mcummings perl flock.

Antoine is joining us from Cormeilles en Parisis, France (yay, french 
conspiracy++), where he's currently studying Network  Telecommunications 
at Jussieu and ENST (Ecole Nationale Superieure des Telecoms).

Besides the studying, he's working for Sogeti IS as a contractor (or slave as 
he says).

According to Antoine, he's only skilled in Perl (well, that's going to be his 
*main* field of work in Gentoo).

When Antoine isn't in front of his computer, he's trying to read a bit, spend
some late nights out with friends, or trying to get some sleep in when he can.

Please welcome Antoine as a new, fellow developer among us !

[gentoo-dev] Last rites: net-www/mod_encoding and net-www/mod_random

2007-01-08 Thread Christian Heim

Dear people (those who care), I just masked net-www/mod_encoding and 
net-www/mod_random.

net-www/mod_encoding is useless with any modern system (it was usefull back in 
the days where browsers/apache couldn't interpret non-ascii charsets 
correctly). There hasn't been any new release for 2 years, and modern 
apache / browsers already support that kind of feature.

net-www/mod_random is a module providing custom, randomized responses which 
can be easily implemented by using some random apache interface-able 
scripting language (pick any of ruby, python, php, ...).

Another reason for this is, that the apache team lost another member and thus 
we are reorganizing stuff, removing ebuilds that are broken, useless with 
current versions of apache or superseeded by other packages, that work better 
and are better maintainable.

It is fading away sometime in February.

 Have you gotten any kind of a response to this yet?  I personally use
 net-wireless/ipw2200 and would not be happy to see it removed.

No I haven't gotten any response to this. Only thing I heard was the question 
if 2.4 users might be dazzled by this. You're the first one.

 The package makes it easier to maintain updated wireless drivers, as the
 kernel can often be behind the current release.  Kernel releases can be
 some time apart, and point releases do not often incorporate new
 third-party drivers.  Consider how long you might have to wait for a bug
 fix for your wireless if a kernel had just been released.  Also, it
 removes the need to recompile the kernel when new ipw drivers are
 released.

Usually you don't have to wait *that* long. And point is, the current upstream 
development (ipw2?00.sf.net) is nearly halted, thus bugs get fixed in the 
kernel at the same time they get fixed in ipw2?00. Point with this removal is 
to remove another package, that is eating up my time. As I don't have the 
interest to maintain it anymore (and the in-kernel drivers work without any 
problems) and also nobody else showed interest in this package, I went ahead 
and announced its removal.

 Furthermore, many users have a much easier time using the
 externally-built module than the in-kernel drivers.  I, personally, found
 it to just work whereas the kernel drivers would not work without lots
 of troubleshooting.

I haven't been in this situation, and I've never seen any complaints (neither 
via mail nor bugzilla), so I have to take the point that there are no 
problems (remember, I can only fix stuff I know of). I'm really sorry if that 
complicates your life more than usual (;)).

Sincerely,

Christian Heim

 Just curious, but what about 2.4 kernel users?  As I understand it, the
 2.4 gentoo-sources seems to be the only currently supported 2.4 kernel
 for x86, so do these drivers even work there?  If not, it makes the
 point moot, but if this is the only way for 2.4-based Gentoo users to
 use their hardware, it might be a bad idea to remove them just yet.

Nope, the external packages currently present in portage don't support 
linux-2.4.

[gentoo-dev] Last rites for net-wireless/ipw2100 and net-wireless/ipw2200

2006-12-20 Thread Christian Heim

Heya,

net-wireless/ipw2100 and net-wireless/ipw2200 are both kernel drivers built as 
an external package through portage. The codebase currently in portage is the 
same that is present in any up-to-date kernel tarball (2.6.x).

For this reason I am suggesting, everyone migrates to the in-kernel drivers.

They can be found here:

Networking  ---
 Network device support  ---
   [*] Network device support
  Wireless LAN (non-hamradio)  ---
[*] Wireless LAN drivers (non-hamradio)  Wireless Extensions
M   Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection
M   Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG and 2915ABG Network Connection

These will also enable the in-kernel version of the ieee80211 driver.

As per summary, both packages are going to get punted from the tree. Both will 
vanish around sometime next January (I'd say 30 days from today - which makes 
it 21th January 2007).

And to leave those of you, who already use the in-kernel driver relaxed, the 
firmware images are not going to get removed as they are still needed for the 
in-kernel drivers.

It's my pleasure to introduce to you Rémi Cardona (also known as remi`), our 
latest addition helping with GNOME.

Rémi is joining us from Paris (again, that's in France!), where he's currently 
trying to finish his CS/EE at the ESIEE engineering school. He recently lived 
in the US for three years and recently finished an exchange with Laval 
University / Quebec, Canada.

He's perfectly aware of C/C++, ebuilds and bash scripts, also knows how to 
work with PHP and (My)SQL. He started learning python (being forced by the 
GNOME libraries) and also knows how to handle autofoo stuff.

When he's not sitting in front of his computer, he actively participates 
within the local school LUG (which he also presided over for two years). He 
enjoys playing tennis, working out at the gym and running off SpanKY, 
err, running a few miles.

Just use svn via our just announced anon-svn. 

That's:
 svn co http://anonsvn.gentoo.org/repositories/portage

[gentoo-dev] New developer: Hans de Graaff

2006-11-04 Thread Christian Heim

Its my pleasure to introduce to you Hans de Graaff (also known as 
graaff), our latest addition helping with emacs/xemacs.

Hans is hailing from Delft, Netherlands (and another one joins our dutch 
conspiracy), where he's currently working for a company called 'Winkwaves' 
(which he partly owns), dealing with all things technical, including 
programming.

His skill set (thanks again Seemant!) is looking pretty filled with proficient 
in C, perl, ruby. Some experience with C#, C++.

While he's not (ab)using his computer, he likes to get outdoors to go hiking 
or skiing (well sort of, skiing in a hall ain't exactly skiing :)).

He's currently living with his two cats which only tolerate him because Hans 
is supplying them with enough food and TLC.

Please welcome Hans as a new fellow developer among us (and another one for 
the emacs monkeys)!

(amne: I hope it was funny, at least a bit !)

[gentoo-dev] New doc developer: Naoaki Shindo

2006-11-04 Thread Christian Heim

Its my pleasure to introduce to you Naoaki Shindo (also known as shindo), our 
latest addition helping with the Japanese translations.

Naoaki hails from Sapporo, Japan (that's where they eat Sushi, *yummy*), where 
he lives with his wife. He's currently working for a bank, particularly the 
bank's security compliance team. Basically he's the guys you want to send 
your bank account numbers for random withdrawal's!

He enjoys listening to music and taking photos, so it happens quite often that 
you'll see him outside with his camera and his music player. Be aware!

Please welcome Naoaki as a new fellow developer among us (and a new helping 
hand for the Japanese docs team)!

[gentoo-dev] New developer: Christian Faulhammer (opfer)

2006-10-27 Thread Christian Heim

Its my pleasure to introduce to you Christian Faulhammer (also known as 
opfer), our latest addition helping with xemacs and the x86 monkeys.

Christian is currently studying mechanical engineering at the RWTH Aachen 
(that's in Germany!) and has been an arch tester for the x86-herd for quite 
some time - that's about 3 months. 

While he's unplugged from his 'puter, Christian is trying to judge handball 
games (you heard right, he's a referee) and he is enjoying cycling (*juck*).

When Christian is trying to relax, he puts on Metallica (or Midnight
Choir, Better than Ezra, or Soilwork) and tries to read Science-Fiction / 
Fantasy books.

Here's a quote from Christian's quiz:

  ... I just love the look of a filled rack. ..

-

OK, I made that up, actually he likes the look of a filled CD rack, which 
refers to his music choice, and he really owns most of those.

Enough of me trying to be a funny person, I'm finished with my bag of chips; 

Please welcome Christian as a new fellow developer among us (and a new minion 
for the x86-monkeys)!

 What package(s) are going stable in 1 week? I have no clue what you are
 writing about since you didn't mention it in your e-mail. I did a
 quick search and found the following 6 packages which have a version
 2.6.18:

   gentoo-sources-2.6.18
   linux-headers-2.6.18
   suspend2-sources-2.6.18
   usermode-sources-2.6.18
   vanilla-sources-2.6.18

 You also neglected to mention which architectures are going stable. Are
 all arches going stable at the same time (in 1 week)? Will you still
 go ahead with the stable marking if http://bugs.gentoo.org/148429 is
 not resolved?

IIRC, Daniel is talking about gentoo-sources (that's his main work area as you 
may know), vanilla-sources _and_ suspend2-sources will have to wait.

Furthermore, Daniel has allowance from x86 and amd64 arch teams to stable 
gentoo-sources on these archs.

 What about creating an official document for both -march/mtune and
 CFLAGS settings for different CPUs? If some other people like the idea
 and no one else volunteers i can go poke the different arch teams,
 toolchain folks and whoever else may be involved about it and compile
 a list based on their input.

I would really like that, I've searched for such a list some times in the past

[gentoo-dev] New Developer: David Shakaryan (omp)

2006-10-14 Thread Christian Heim

Its my pleasure to introduce to you David Shakaryan (also known as omp), our 
latest addition joining to help out with desktop-misc and the commonbox-herd.

He hails from Glendale (that's in the Los Angeles area as he told me). 
So far he hasn't contributed anything big (like being a dev) 
to any project, so this will be his first time ! (eh, another one ?)

He while he's unplugged from the famous internet and his computer, he enjoys 
spending time with his friends and 'other usual activities', where usual 
activities = I plug in the soldering iron and next thing I know I'm sitting 
there holding an ice cube against my finger.

His skillset isn't as evolved as lack's; he only knows Bash, 
PHP/HTML/XHTML/CSS and Ruby. But he's looking forward to the day when he'll 
decide if its advantageous to learn C/C++.

He's currently attending Clark Magnet High School, with the plan to visit the 
University (hasn't decided yet if it will be UC Berkeley or UCLA) and maybe 
moving out of the US to somewhere else.

So please welcome David as a new fellow developer among us!

2006-10-09 Thread Christian Heim

Its my pleasure to introduce to you Alexis Ballier (also known as aballier), 
our latest addition joining to help out with the media-sound and media-video 
herd.

He hails from Marseille (that's in France if someone doesn't know where 
Marseille is). So far he hasn't contributed anything big (like being a dev) 
to any project, so this will be his first time ! He had planned to create a 
website to diffuse the useless stuff - that's how he calls his previous 
contributions to other projects - , but has always been to lazy to learn how 
to create a website.

His skillset only includes the basic linux languages (that being beneath 
English, C and C++, but also BASH) and ocaml (wtf is ocaml? - thanks to Alec 
I know that now).

He's currently finishing his master degree in computer science (another 
one :P) and will be a PhD student next year. Currently he doesn't have any 
hobbies except riding his bike because that prevents him most time to use the 
car or metro (thus is leaving more time for Gentoo, yay!). He also enjoys 
climbing and walking.

So please welcome Alexis as a new fellow developer among us!

2006-10-06 Thread Christian Heim

Its my pleasure to introduce to you Alon alonbl Bar-Lev, the latest addition 
joining to help out with the crypto herd.

He hails from Israel (hrm, they don't have cities down there ?). So far it 
looks like Alon is completely constrained to his computer, he doesn't have 
any other hobbies nor life.

So while he's sitting in front of his computer, he is (or better was) working 
on smartcard support for nearly everything (OpenVPN, QT, OpenSSH, GnuPG, 
xsupplicant and Mozilla).

Additionally he believes that without free and open alternatives to cooperate 
software, users eventually will be forced to give up some of their freedoms.

He also has some extraordinary skill set, I won't list them all. But a few, 
just fyi.

Starting with C, C++, Java, ASM (for x86, x51 and s390), bash, Perl and ending 
with System programmer for Linux, AIX, Windows and z/OS. Also he has some 
experience in the field of embedded systems.

So please welcome Alon as a new fellow developer among us!

Re: [gentoo-dev] Gentoo World Domination. a 10 step guide

2006-10-04 Thread Christian Heim
On Wednesday, 04. October. 2006 13:00, Thomas Cort wrote:
 There have been a number of developers leaving Gentoo in the past 6
 months as well as a number of news stories on DistroWatch, Slashdot,
 LWN, and others about Gentoo's internal problems. No one seems to have
 pin pointed the problem, but it seems glaringly obvious to me. We
 simply don't have enough developers to support the many projects that
 we have. Here are my ideas for fixing this problem:

 - Cut the number of packages in half (put the removed ebuilds in
 community run overlays)

We (treecleaner, poke Alec about that) are currently working on something 
alike. A user / Alec suggested putting removed packages into a seperate 
overlay, so the ebuilds would be still accessible (without using 
sources.gentoo.org and putting it into a local overlay).

 - Formal approval process (or at least strict criteria) for adding
 new packages

 - Make every dev a member of at least 1 arch team

I think that would solve the understaffing of some of the arch teams (iirc 
amd64 and x86 are having enough devs / at's right now)

 - Double the number of developers with aggressive recruiting

Before you do that, you'll have to double the number of recruiters. Otherwise 
you're creating a pretty bottleneck.

 - No competing projects

 - New projects must have 5 devs, a formal plan, and be approved by the
 council

 - Devs can only belong to 5 projects at most

Reducing the stress on people ? No clue what that would solve.

 - Drop all arches and Gentoo/Alt projects except Linux on amd64,
 ppc32/64, sparc, and x86

I guess at least Diego and Fabian are going to yell at you right now.

 - Reduce the number of projects by eliminating the dead, weak,
 understaffed, and unnecessary projects

 - Project status reports once a month for every project

That would be great, but to whom should they report ? The council ? Or 
via -core ?

  Punted.

 So, why was this one punted, anyway? The bug was fixed in the new
 version, and an updated ebuild was submitted?

As Jakub pointed out in #88580 
(https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=88580), killsoft retired and no one 
stepped up to maintain this package. As the package _currently_ in portage is 
completely broken, and has no maintainer, current guideline is to either find 
a new maintainer or *remove* it from the tree.

As no one stepped up in maintaining this package, it got punted.

  I've actually wondered about this as well since I've been in projects as

  modification to the dev tag for non-gentoo contributors?

 http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/qa/treecleaners/
 Looks like a perfect example how to solve it to me - one section
 listing the developers and one for contributors who aren't.

If you take a look at the plain XML, you'll see that's a custom made table. As 
Alec suggested it would be nice to have a modified version of the dev-tag 
(accepting something like role=contributor and according to that listing 
them separately) or an extra tag like contrib for example.

[gentoo-dev] autotools.eclass and binary packages

2006-08-05 Thread Christian Heim
I'm currently preparing one of my embedded system for a test-run and noticed 
that a *binary* package of media-libs/libpng pulls in the autofoo-stuff.

I went looking for the reason, looked into the eutils, multilib and finally 
autotools eclasses and saw that the autotools.eclass is setting the DEPEND 
but not the RDEPEND. IIRC portage-2.1 is now setting RDEPEND to DEPEND if 
nothing other is assigned within the ebuild/eclass.

So the simplest fix would be to assign RDEPEND= in the eclass [1].

If no-one objects, I will commit the changes on monday.

TIA, Christian

 Hi,

 The local root exploit-of-the-week would have been unable to run if our

 It would be worthwhile considering making this a default. What are
 people's thoughts?

 Additional testing of this change would be appreciated (just ensure that
 nothing breaks). To do it as a one off:

 # mount -o remount,nosuid,noexec /proc

 To make it more permanent, /etc/fstab has:

 proc/procprocdefaults0 0

 Change to:

 proc/procprocnosuid,noexec0 0

Is there an open bug or security advisory for this exploit I missed? I tried
 the CLI solution; works just fine here. No wild behavior so far. Any
 suggestions on what to look for, or how to really hammer /proc? :)

There is bug #140444.
