ld: fatal: use the -z help option for usage information

I'm having problems building Python:

ld: fatal: use the -z help option for usage information

Compilation of all modules fails with this message. Has anyone seen
this before? I thought it was related to
https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/gar/wiki/Mapfiles so I added:

LINKER_IGNORE =

But I'm still seeing the problem.

My work is committed:
~/opencsw/lang-python/python/branches/python-3.4

Do we have a standard solution for this?

Removal of CSWruby18tk from CSWruby18 build

Hi Yann,

I noticed you removed the generation of CSWruby18tk in the latest Ruby 
build
without changing anything else:

https://buildfarm.opencsw.org/source/diff/opencsw/csw/mgar/pkg/ruby18/trunk/Makefile?r2=%2Fopencsw%2Fcsw%2Fmgar%2Fpkg%2Fruby18%2Ftrunk%2FMakefile%4022978&r1=%2Fopencsw%2Fcsw%2Fmgar%2Fpkg%2Fruby18%2Ftrunk%2FMakefile%4019643
Is there a specific reason for this? Unfortunately I have a customer who 
uses this
and I am in need of restoring that in unstable if possible.

Best regards

Your script

Hi Rafi,

I noticed you are working on a changelog edit script. This is superuseful
and I wanted to have that for a very long time. I also keep thinking that it
would be nice to have a dedicated place for the changelog per package in an
easy-to-parse format (probably in ReST/Markdown?) which could be displayed
on pkgutil -u (store the previous changelog before removal and diff to the
newly installed one). Also Catalog changediffs could be generated that way.

Thoughts?

Best regards

  — Dago

Bugs in the package browser; user names are mismatched

Let's take Guillaume Rousse for instance. His packages are tagged
correctly, but there's something wrong on the website, because you
can't see the link to the maintainer's page:

http://www.opencsw.org/packages/fi_agent/

"Last uploaded by" is empty.

There's a page with a truncated user name:
http://www.opencsw.org/maintainers/guillomo/

...but there are no packages linked to it.

A similar situation happens with Victor Hooi, I'm sure there are others.

Is anyone aware of the problem?

New Board Formation

Hi All,

I'd like to congratulate Peter, Dago and Carsten in their election to
the board of OpenCSW. Their contributions and dedication are already
well known to the community and I have full confidence that they'll be
an excellent representation of what OpenCSW stands for.

I'll let them formalize the positions and make the announcement as
their first formal act.

Thanks
-Ben

Consolidation

Hi guys,

I'd like to share some thoughts about our documentation and information tools.

It's not hard to see, that "all that OpenCSW has" in regards to any kind of information for users/maintainers/devs is spread across a wide variety of tools & places.

Dago & I discussed this at the camp, and as Maciej has mentioned, parts of this have already been discussed earlier:

First of all, here's a list of all the tools & places I could find, that store information or act as a communication platform:
(tell me if I forgot something)
  • www.opencsw.org (Wordpress)
  • www.opencsw.org/manual (Sphinx - Python Documentation Generator)
  • www.opencsw.org/community (OpenSource Q&A)
  • opencsw.wikidot.com (WikiDot)
  • pkgutil.wikidot.com (WikiDot)
  • github.com/opencsw (GitHub with gar, pkg-all, discourse, osqa)
  • opencsw.sourceforge.net (HTML?)
  • sourceforge.net/projects/opencsw (SourceForge Project)
  • sourceforge.net/projects/gar (SourceForge Project)
  • sourceforge.net/apps/trac/gar & sourceforge.net/p/gar/tracwiki/Home (Trac, both sites seem to be the same)

Also - just as an overview - we have/use the following:
  • opencsw.org/mantis
  • buildfarm.opencsw.org
  • #opencsw on irc.freenode.net
  • Mail, Mailing Lists, Lists Archive, Webmail?
  • RSS Feeds
  • Flickr
  • YouTube
  • Google+
  • Twitter
  • Google Docs (group & shared files)
  • Facebook
  • Wikipedia
  • LinkedIn (nearly empty)

I'm not listing all of this because I think we should change it all. Just to raise awareness.

Now my thoughts:
  • I think, that our website doesn't need to contain that much information. It needs to get people started & provide access to further information and tools (Daniel had some nice ideas there).
  • The current info on the website, the manual, the wiki(s) and all info out there should be in one place. Preferably a tool which may be edited over a browser, if we want to give all people the ability to edit as well.
  • I support the idea of separating information from bugtracking from mailing lists from social media, etc. There should be only one place for the same kind of thing, but a place for each kind of thing.
  • The rework should be coupled with the new website that Daniel is working on.
  • It may be worth a thought if we should separate our "product" (the recipes & packages) from our own tools (gar, buildfarm, ...) or combine them. I'm talking about info & bugtracking & (...) for each or for both in one place. Having only one place would/could reduce the maintenance on the tools, but maybe lead to confusion for the users.
  • We should decide what needs to be done first, and what may come later.
I would like to propose, that we decide on a existing or new tool for storing & presenting information and then gradually start moving stuff away from the old locations. I would volunteer to do the moving.

What are your thoughts?

Cheers,
Stefan

Broken login

Hi folks,

I was updating „login“ yesterday to the latest release and then went on with other stuff
as the update ran for quite a while. As it seems the update got stuck during updating
fontcache (I need to look into that). Regardless from that when I noticed the error the
pkgutil run aborted due to an error during installation in the fontconfig package.
The difficult problem is that pkgutil removes all packages and exits on error without
being able to continue or leaving a trace what is left to be done. It would be very useful
to have some „what is yet to do“ statusfile/script somewhere to pick up at that exact
location and finish the work.

Best regards

  — Dago

csw-upload-pkg on login

Hi guys

I'm trying to upload package on login. csw-upload-pkg dies with

 -bash: /opt/csw/bin/csw-upload-pkg: /opt/csw/bin/bash: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

Is there something I missed?

Killing newpkgs and pkgsubmissions lists

Hi Ihsan,

I propose we kill the newpkgs and pkgsubmissions mailing lists and remove them from the listinfo page[1]. They aren't used any more.

Permissions on www for the manual

Hi folks,

the ownership for the cswmanual was wrong the second time in a few days:

# ls -l;ls -l log
total 20
-rw-r--r--   1 cswmanual csw          405 Jan 27  2013 README
drwxr-xr-x   2 cswmanual csw            3 Jan 16  2013 bin
drwxr-xr-x   2 cswmanual csw            3 Jan 27  2013 log

total 8
-rw-r--r--   1 wwwadmin csw         1637 Apr 10 11:15 buildlog

Is it possible that someone got wwwadmin and regenerated the manual?

Best regards
