inetutils upset messages

upset: *** /var/ftp/pub/cygwin/x86_64/setup.ini: warning - package inetutils-server refers to
nonexistent external-source: inetutils

This is a valid error since there was no

inetutils-1.9.1-2-src.tar.xz

I fixed that but I don't understand is how this ended up in the release
area in that state.

...

Nevermind.  Stupid coding error.

In the *future* this should not leave the release area in an inconsistent
state.

Btw, I should mention that the setup.ini generation happens once an hour
at (currently) 2 minutes past the hour.  I do tend to change that when
I'm working on a problem but once an hour should be a constant unless
there is a serious problem requiring complete shutdown of setup.ini
generation.

64-bit: Missing perl modules

32-bit Cygwin has a 'perl_vendor' package, which contains a number of 
perl modules that are not present in 64-bit Cygwin. Specifically, I am 
interested in the following perl modules:

     Devel::Symdump
     Pod::Coverage
     Test::Pod
     Test::Pod::Coverage

These are all available in the 'perl_vendor' package in 32-bit Cygwin, 
but missing from 64-bit.

Reini: I am aware that you maintain these modules in the 32-bit 
distribution through the 'perl_vendor' package. I don't want to tread on 
any toes, and I don't know what plans you have for 'perl_vendor'. 
However, I would like to see these modules in 64-bit Cygwin, and would 
be happy to maintain them myself if you would prefer not to do so.

Please let me know how you would like to proceed. If you were happy for 
me to maintain these perl modules then I can send an ITP for four 
separate packages. These would be in 64-bit Cygwin only (unless 
'perl_vendor' was to become obsolete). Obviously, I would be equally 
happy for you to provide a 64-bit 'perl_vendor' if you thought that was 
the right thing to do.

Cheers,

Dave.

fontconfig packaging suggestion

Yaakov,

There is a problem with having fontconfig include the Windows Fonts 
directory in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf.  Namely, the font cache for that 
directory is very likely to be out of date [*], but most users have no 
idea that they need to run fc-cache to keep it up to date.  This can 
cause slowdowns or worse for applications that use fontconfig.  See, for 
instance http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2013-12/threads.html#00246 and 
several similar reports that came later.

I propose that fontconfig *not* include the Windows Fonts directory, but 
that a new package (perhaps called fontconfig-windows-fonts) be created 
that takes over this functionality.  This could either be a subpackage 
of fontconfig or an independent package, in which case I would be glad 
to maintain it.

This package would handle the Windows Fonts directory by creating the 
appropriate file in /etc/fonts/conf.d, and it would also provide a 
script that calls fc-cache to update the Windows Fonts cache.  The 
release announcement would warn users that the script should be called 
whenever the Windows Fonts directory changed.  And I would explicitly 
advise emacs-X11 users *not* to install the package unless they really 
want to be able to use Windows fonts while running emacs under X.

WDYT?

Ken

[*] This can happen because of a Windows Update, or because software was 
added or removed, or because the user knowingly installed or removed fonts.

[ITP] djvulibre, ilmbase, openexr, liblqr1, libwebp

I will be uploading the libraries listed in the subject soon.  They are 
all optional dependencies of ImageMagick, and libwebp can be used by 
GraphicsMagick and will eventually be a dependency of future releases of 
GStreamer and WebKit.

Please note that the uploaded version of libwebp will be newer than that 
currently in Ports; the others are being moved straight from Ports.

Untidy situation regarding p11-kit packaging causing setup inconsistency

Hi,

I've noticed that on a number of occasions when attempting to update my
Cygwin 32 bit installation, that amongst the list of packages for
update (Download only method), libp11-kit0 is continually listed to go
to version 0.18.17-1.

I never noted what happened when I finally performed an Install/update,
as the actions on other packages masked what is truly happening. But
obviously what is happening is that libp11-kit0 is remaining at a
version other than suggested.

This snippet will give the problem away:

$ cygcheck -cd p11-kit libp11-kit0
Cygwin Package Information
Package              Version
libp11-kit0          0.19.1-1
p11-kit              0.18.7-1

I should note for those unaware, the chronology of the release of these
packages is non-sequential in terms of version number.

0.19.1-1 was released on 30 May 2013:

https://sourceware.org/ml/cygwin-announce/2013-05/msg00031.html

0.18.7-1 was released after, on 16 Oct 2013:

 Hello!

 Some time ago i intended to publish this package. Since that everything
stopped, i have never got any "go" or "fix it" reply.
 The URL is the same as before:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s95jz1ql5xs8yx7/8mhUDlI_Kg
 Anyone ???

cygport cross compilation

I've just started experimenting with using cygport for cross compiling, 
and I've come across two issues:

1. This is just a request: The latest cygport for Fedora appends i686 or 
x86_64 to the name of the working directory.  I would find it convenient 
if cygport did the same thing on Cygwin, at least if the --32 or --64 
option is specified.

2. I tried to do a build for x86-cygwin on x86_64-cygwin, but the 
compiler didn't work:

$ cat test.c
int
main ()
{
   return 0;
}

$ i686-pc-cygwin-gcc test.c
/tmp/ccaAaoj6.s: Assembler messages:
/tmp/ccaAaoj6.s:9: Error: invalid instruction suffix for `push'

[ITA] base-files


Since the current maintainer David Le Sastre Medina seems to have gone
missing, here's my attempt to wrap up the changes that were implemented
after the 4.1-2 package was published as experimental (and then never
released).  The pertinent discussions on the Cygwin ML are listed in the
ChangeLog.

Change Log
----------
4.1-3
    * Eliminate Windows PATH from default PATH if CYGWIN_NOWINPATH is
      set.  Record the Windows PATH in ORIGINAL_PATH unless that
      variable is already set.
    * Better guard for non-existent /etc/skel.
    * Improve profile_d function.
      cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2012-08/msg00488.html
    * Add /etc/shells.
      cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2014-03/msg00039.html
    * Use full path for tools and avoid DOS file warning when creating
      service files.
