Bug#786997: clarification


In my original message I mentioned several other timeouts, which may have
misled other readers into thinking that it's safe to actually change them
all - it isn't.

I've had best results when I only changed the's
worker_timeout to 10+ seconds less than global timeout. That had the effect
such as this in the logs:

2016/02/06 10:53:42 [FATAL] Socket read timed out to server.  Terminating process. at
/usr/share/perl5/Munin/Master/ line 254.
2016/02/06 10:53:42 [ERROR] Munin::Master::UpdateWorker<badnode> died with '[FATAL] Socket read
timed out to server.  Terminating process. at /usr/share/perl5/Munin/Master/ line 254.
2016/02/06 10:53:50 [INFO] Remaining workers: badnode
2016/02/06 10:53:50 [INFO] Reaping Munin::Master::UpdateWorker<badnode>.  Exit value/signal: 18/0
2016/02/06 10:53:51 [INFO]: Munin-update finished (49.94 sec)

When I messed with other variables, it had nasty side-effects such as
thousands of repeated lines in the logs in case of downtimes, effectively
causing log disk DoS. So just don't do that.(TM)

Bug#813886: sysstat: allow daemon and cron jobs to be disabled more completely

Package: sysstat
Version: 11.0.1-1
Severity: wishlist


this package is installed on most of my systems, mostly because I
really like to have iostat available. But I do not have a use for the
daemon or the two cron jobs.

deamon: disabled by default, yet the init script still runs, doing nothing.
cron jobs: same, but they still clutter up the logs 144+ times/day.

Of course, both can be disabled more completely manually but it's a
hassle and I'm not quite sure how to do it, esp. the cron jobs, The
Debian Way, i.e., not confusing or breaking upgrades.

One solution would be to have a debconf setting that does more than
change /etc/default/sysstat, another to split the "passive" components
(*stat) from the "active" ones (sa*) into separate packages.

Bug#813885: cppo: Missing native libraries

Package: cppo
Version: 1.3.1-1
Severity: grave
Tags: patch

Dear Maintainer,

On architectures with OCaml support for native compilation, cppo 1.3.1-1
is missing the native libraries. (They were there in 1.1.2-2.) The patch
below fixes this problem (tested on amd64 and ppc64le), I have committed
that to the git repository.

Package: check-all-the-things
Version: 2015.12.10

README says you should sign all pushes, but the Alioth repo doesn't 
support them:

$ git remote -v | grep origin.*push
origin	git+ssh:// (push)

$ git push origin master --sign
fatal: the receiving end does not support --signed push
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

Bug#813883: PST: Considers version 1.8.1 newer than 1.10.0

Severity: normal


the PTS page of v4l-utils[1] reminds me to package the new 1.8.1 version
of v4l-utils. But version 1.10.0 is already in sid and testing. It looks
like it does not do a version compare but a numeric one instead.
