Re: [gentoo-dev] proposal: use only one hash function in manifest files

2022-04-05 Thread Jonas Stein

Hi


I'd like to propose the following for portage:

- Only support one "secure" hash function (such as sha2, sha3, blake2, etc)
- Only generate and parse one hash function in Manifest files
- Remove support for multiple hash functions


No, this has no benefit.


In other words, what are we actually getting by having _both_ SHA2-512
and BLAKE2b for every file in every Manifest? 


Implementations are often broken and we have to expect zero day attacks 
on hashes and on signatures. Hence it does not hurt to have a second hash.


It is very likely that we can not trust in X for a while in the next 
years, but it is very unlikely that two different implementations are 
affected.


Additionally calculating a second hash does not cost anything.
This was also the outcome of the discussion some time ago here.

Hi Jakov,

please do not remove net-wireless/nanovna-saver package.
I know of many users of this package.
One (who is not on this list) wrote me that he will try to fix the open 
bugs. He wrote that most of these are not critical.


Where can I find the official last-rites bug ticket
for net-wireless/nanovna-saver so that we can continue there?

* upstream does not maintain the source anymore. Issues and PRs remain open
* some tickets let me assume, that the software is not usable anymore 
(for example TLS failure: 
https://github.com/dequis/purple-facebook/issues/525)
* If you love this package, contact upstream and become the new upstream 
maintainer

  https://github.com/dequis/purple-facebook/issues/518
* We cannot maintain such a complicate project by constantly patching it 
downstream

* We can reintroduce this package any time when upstream is alive again

Hi,


I've been packaging some Gemini protocol servers and clients in ::guru

better to split browsers and servers for non-www protocols (like Finger,

all servers without www servers means, we should move

[gentoo-dev] [RFC] dissolving project netmon

Dear all,

the project netmon is openly discussed as "dead" since years.
We should not blame its members, but the fact that the packages in 
netmon are very different and should not be clustered in one project.


Thanks to everyone who helped out with bugs assigned to netmon.

I suggest to reassign the netmon packages to m-n.
This will motivate others to grab the packages and reflect the real status.

Are there any objections to dissolving netmon?

Re: [gentoo-dev] [RFC] Removing SHA512 hash from Manifests

2021-07-25 Thread Jonas Stein

Hi,


Back during the 2017 discussion, Infra came to the conclusion that we're
going to keep SHA512 for a transition period, then remove it, and stay
with a single hash algorithm.  In my opinion, we have kept it long
enough.

WDYT?


As far I remember we agreed to keep two different hashes.
The idea is, that if one hash is no longer safe to use, we still have a 
short period for migration.


If we use only one hash, gentoo is vulnarable to "sudden problems". The 
everyday news show us, that broken implementations are possible and that 
this scenario is likely to happen over the years.


The benefit of removing the second hash is negligible.
So we should keep two different hashes.

[gentoo-dev] Cleanup of sunrise remains

2021-03-23 Thread Jonas Stein

Dear all,

Sunrise was discontinued on June 2016. [1]
Its remains confuse our users. There are several places, where sunrise 
is still advertised.

Now it is time for the final shutdown. [3]

I suggest to move the ebuilds [2] to an archive somewhere for 6 months 
for the unlikely case that there are any valuable ebuilds left.


If there is any useful package left, please pick it up, overhaul it and 
move it either to the tree, or guru.

[gentoo-dev] Bug-Wranglers note: Assign arch bugs to the maintainer

2021-02-10 Thread Jonas Stein

Hi,

please assign bugs which occur on a specific architecture only (arm, 
arm64, ppc, ...) to the maintainer of the package.
The maintainer of the package can ping the arch teams on IRC in order to 
solve the bug together.



In order to defeat the bugs, we need the best possible reporting and 
assignment procedure.
There was no documented rule for this case and we saw all possible 
variants. We will reassign them accordingly.

Thanks to Sam for bringing this up.

A collection of further agreements, how we can assign bugs in the best 
way can be found on

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Bug-wranglers

Everybody with EDITBUGS permission may help to assign bugs.

[gentoo-dev] [RFC] parser friendly package.mask comments

2021-01-18 Thread Jonas Stein

Hi,

it would be nice to have parser friendly comments in package.mask

The new format
- must be as easy to read and write for humans as it is now.
- must be structured



Benefits of a parser friendly package.mask:

- use it for statistics
- list all packages which are overdue
- pretty print a sorted list
- use syntax highlighting and folding in editors
- better pkgcheck/repoman checks for malformed masks
- automatic nice and readable commit messages
- get even more out of the mgorny-dev-scripts
https://github.com/mgorny/mgorny-dev-scripts/blob/master/lr-add-pmask
- all items have the same structure
- # Removal after: 2021-09-01 is easier to read than
  # Masked for removal in 90 days.


Example workflow on the command line

$> lr-add-pmask app-misc/some-package 987654 2019-07-01 "Doesn't work 
with new libfoo. Upstream dead, gtk-1, smells all commented lines after 
Reason are the reason."


$> lr-commit-pmask




OLD FORMAT

# Dev E. Loper  (2019-07-01)
# Masked for removal in 90 days.  Doesn't work
# with new libfoo. Upstream dead, gtk-1, smells
# funny. (bug #987654). Others write Bug 123456.
# Bug 1 is known well, but the second bug 2 hours to fix.

[gentoo-dev] Dissolving project desktop-misc

2020-11-26 Thread Jonas Stein

Dear all,

sorting packages in a group of "misc" packages was not useful.
We have to dissolve the project desktop-misc

There are some tickets which should be closed first before we reassign 
the packages to maintainer-needed.


It would be good to review if there are packages which have to be tree 
cleaned instead of reassigned. The bug tracker lets assume that some 
packages do not build any more.


On
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Desktop_Miscellaneous
you will find a ink to all desktop-misc bugs and more useful information 
about dissolving desktop-misc.


Please grab the nice packages.

At first we need a strict definition of "stable" and "testing", then we
can discuss how to stabilize.

The list of requirements should be testable like

if (old_enough AND no_bugs_with_security_tag AND all_deps_stable AND ...
) then stable

We should have a vote which properties are required and stick to these
more strictly in future.

And a stabilization tool, which is part of gentoo and hosted at gentoo
will check these properties.

The heart of a distribution is basically its infrastructure and the
tools to test, maintain and distribute packages.

If a distribution relies on external sources, which are not maintained
by the distribution, but a single person, it has been forked.

A healthy distribution needs to maintain its own tools.

Add a link to the bug as described in

The proxied maintainer fixed exactly one bug while he was proxied
maintainer.
This happens too often.
Some retire are one, others after very few contributions.

Please advertise that you do not need to be maintainer to create a pull
request. You should only be maintainer, if you are willing to monitor
the bug tracker and take care of the packages in the long term.

In the past we gave too often the impression "if you want this bug
fixed, become a proxied maintainer"

Our bugzilla does not help here (https://bugs.gentoo.org/719720)
"No maintainer - Look at
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Proxy_Maintainers if you want to
take care of it"

While this is not totally wrong, it seems that we mislead the volunteers
here. Perhaps some read "it" as the bug, while we mean "care for all
bugs and keep the package up to date over the next years"
