Bug#786805: RFA: y-u-no-validate -- browser extension to make security exceptions temporary by default

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request an adopter for the y-u-no-validate package. (Note that RFA != 
O. Talk to me before taking over this package.)

The package description is:

y-u-no-validate is an Iceweasel extension that makes the "Permanently 
store this exception" checkbox in the "Add Security Exception" dialog 
unchecked by default.

Bug#744972: Another JS false positive

I just encountered a false positive in packaging a new upstream release
of perl-doc-html (5.20.1-1):

E: perl-doc-html source: source-is-missing static/indexFAQs.js

I am overriding it for now.

Bug#786804: hwclock(8) SUID privilege escalation

Package: util-linux
Version: 2.26.2

Actually, all versions of util-linux are affected.

Hello, Federico Bento here.

During a recent assessment I have stumbled across a system which had  
hwclock(8) setuid root

$ man hwclock | sed -n '223,231p'

Users access and setuid
        Sometimes, you need to install hwclock setuid root. If you  
want users other than the superuser to be able to display the clock  
value using the direct ISA I/O
        method,  install  it setuid root. If you have the /dev/rtc  
interface on your system or are on a non-ISA system, there's probably  
no need for users to use the
        direct ISA I/O method, so don't bother.

        In any case, hwclock will not allow you to set anything unless  
you have the superuser real uid.  (This  is  restriction  is  not   
necessary  if  you  haven't
        installed setuid root, but it's there for now).

Bug#773131: Quick update

unblock 773131 by 780230 784173

It turns out you can build JRuby 1.7.19 with bnd and
maven-bundle-plugin versions available in sid right now.
Maybe is not ideal but it works OK so far.

The only blocker remaining to upload jruby 1.7.x to experimental is

Bug#786803: Please consider versioned Provides

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org <at> packages.debian.org
Usertags: britney


Now that both dpkg and apt are able to use versioned Provides, it would
be nice to take it into consideration for testing migrations.

Please find attached a basic new test for britney2-tests and a simple
documentation update for britney’s dependencies.

I tried to figure out what would be needed to make that work, but
unfortunately don’t understand much Python. The last patch doesn’t do
anything useful, but at least doesn’t break the existing testsuite (I
guess there is at least something to fix around there)…

currently prevents migration of Symfony and many of its reverse

You are not the first one to notice: https://bugs.debian.org/645828

That bug report though does not take into account that the initial
team member who packaged libdatetime-astro-sunrise-perl initially
deliberately has chosen DateTime::Astro::Sunrise over
DateTime::Event::Sunrise based on the provided feature set, i.e. the
superiority of DateTime::Event::Sunrise seems questionable. See line
57 of

Additionally popcon (popularity statistics) are now that low (but not
high either):

Bug#691358: This bug is caused by tempfile from File::Temp


As I have investigated, this bug is not caused by Config::IniFiles but
by tempfile function from File::Temp module, which is used internally
when a new ini file is created.

By default tempfile creates a new file with 0600 permission bits.

A similar bug is discussed here

Bug#786799: lftp cant establish data connection when using ftpes

Package: lftp
Version: 4.6.0-1+deb8u1
Severity: important

After Upgrading from wheezy to jessie I tried to upload a backup onto a
backup server using FTPES.
This failed with "425 Unable to build data connection: Operation not

I tried a simle "ls" after that, which still failed.
Curl was able to connect successfully, so it couldn't have been the server.
After that I downloaded lftp 4.6.2-1 from stretch, installed it
and it worked correctly.

So I assume 4.6.0-1+deb8u1 does something wrong when trying to establish
the data connection, maybe something to do with SSL session reuse, since
that's the most common error that comes up when googling the error message.

Transcript and error messages attached.
