Bug#766760: ITP: american-fuzzy-lop -- instrumentation-driven fuzzer for binary formats

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Jakub Wilk <jwilk <at> debian.org>

* Package name    : american-fuzzy-lop
   Version         : 0.40b
   Upstream Author : Name <somebody <at> example.org>
* URL             : http://code.google.com/p/american-fuzzy-lop/
* License         : Apache License 2.0
   Programming Lang: C
   Description     : instrumentation-driven fuzzer for binary formats

American fuzzy lop uses a novel type of compile-time instrumentation and 
genetic algorithms to automatically discover clean, interesting test 
cases and substantially improve the functional coverage for the tested 
code.

Compared to other instrumented fuzzers, the tool is designed to be 
practical: it has a modest performance overhead, uses a variety of 
highly effective fuzzing strategies, and seamlessly handles complex, 
real-world use cases - say, common image parsing or file compression 
libraries.

Using libjpeg as an example, the tool easily toggles twice as many 
branches as non-instrumented fuzzing, and identifies around 40% more 
distinctive test cases compared to statement coverage algorithms.

Removing conffiles AND directories in /etc

Hello,

I have a bug (#764235) in which after I remove all conffiles in
/etc/debtags with dpkg-maintscripthelper, the /etc/debtags directory
itself is left around.

This is what happens:

  # dpkg -i debtags_1.12.2_amd64.deb 
  (Reading database ... 370467 files and directories currently installed.)
  Preparing to unpack ../debtags_1.12.2_amd64.deb ...
  Unpacking debtags (1.12.2) over (1.11) ...
  dpkg: warning: unable to delete old directory '/etc/debtags/sources.list.d': Directory not empty
  dpkg: warning: unable to delete old directory '/etc/debtags': Directory not empty
  dpkg: warning: unable to delete old directory '/etc/apt.conf.d': Directory not empty
  Setting up debtags (1.12.2) ...
  Removing obsolete conffile /etc/debtags/sources.list.d/source-example ...
  Removing obsolete conffile /etc/debtags/sources.list ...
  Processing triggers for man-db (2.7.0.2-2) ...

So, dpkg-maintscripthelper seems to do "Removing obsolete conffile"
after dpkg tries to delete old directories, so dpkg fails.

I'd be surprised if I were the first to encounter this problem: what is
the appropriate and clean way to get rid of *all* conffiles for a
package, including the directory that contains them?

Enrico

I don't think that the guile interpreter in make is essential. I may have missed
some discussion, but afaics it is not needed by default, so packages should
declare an explicit build dependency on make-guile, if they need it.

directory trees to and from the cloud. You can also perform streaming
downloads for example to preview videos and audio files, without
needing to download the entire file.

Megatools are robust and optimized for fast operation - as fast as
Mega servers allow. Memory requirements and CPU utilization are kept
at minimum.

You can register account using a 'megareg' tool, with the benefit of
having true control of your encryption keys.

  Description     : Backup and recovery utilities for GitHub Enterprise

 The backup utilities implement a number of advanced capabilities for backup
 hosts, built on top of the backup and restore features already included in
 GitHub Enterprise.
 .
 These advanced features include:
 .
 Complete GitHub Enterprise backup and recovery system via two simple utilities:
 `ghe-backup` and `ghe-restore`.
 Online backups. The GitHub appliance need not be put in maintenance mode for
 the duration of the backup run.
 Incremental backup of Git repository data. Only changes since the last
 snapshot are transferred, leading to faster backup runs and lower network
 bandwidth and machine utilization.
 Efficient snapshot storage. Only data added since the previous snapshot
 consumes new space on the backup host.
 Multiple backup snapshots with configurable retention periods.
 Backup commands run under the lowest CPU/IO priority on the GitHub appliance,
 reducing performance impact while backups are in progress.
