Stewardship SIG Report #1

After some weeks of initial setup and sorting through the chaos of Java packages
in rawhide, the Stewardship SIG has finally started to operate as it was
originally intended. You've probably noticed that I started the process of
trying to redistribute some of the SIG packages three weeks ago.

## Package clean-up procedure

The purpose of our SIG was to prevent massive problems caused by package mass
orphanings and retirements, as you know.

Intent to orphan python-cachy, python-pylev, python-tomlkit

I intend to orphan the cachy, pylev, and tomlkit python packages.

I originally packaged them because they are dependencies of poetry,
but because upstream is either indifferent or hostile towards
distribution packaging, and has ignored all my bug reports that are
blocking fedora packages, this is no longer happening.

If you want to take any of these packages, I'll gladly hand it / them over.

Otherwise, I will orphan them in about one week and send them towards
retirement, since no fedora packages depend on them yet.

rpmlint whitelisting broken in taskotron?

Hi,

I've noticed that my bodhi updates started showing rpmlint errors for
my packages again, where they were previously silent because I supply
a $SRCNAME.rpmlintrc file in my dist-git repos.

It looks like taskotron is broken and/or ignores this file again.

Stewardship SIG packages looking for permanent maintainer(s)

Hi everybody,

The initial fallout of the recent mass-orphanings has been dealt with,
and almost no packages should still have broken dependencies.

At this point, we'd like to start distributing some packages we took
to maintainers whose packages actively (and directly) depend on things
we maintain.

The list of packages that are "leaf packages" as far as the
Stewardship SIG is concerned, is:

- apache-commons-discovery
- json_simple
- nodejs-array-union
- nodejs-arrify
- nodejs-set-immediate-shim

Owners of directly dependent packages have been added to CC.

Stewardship SIG Meeting (2019-04-17; 17:00 UTC)

Hi everybody,

Tomorrow we'll have the first meeting of the Stewardship SIG.
Non-SIG-members are of course welcome to participate, as well.

I considered both the final whenisgood survey results and the fedora
meeting calendar to find a good spot for this week (which is a bit of
a weird one due to the Easter holidays).

urw-base35-fonts package missing from f30 and rawhide composes

Hi everybody,

I've noticed today that several of my packages are starting to fail to
build in koschei due to missing dependencies - on urw-base35-fonts.
Attempting fedpkg scratch builds in koji confirmed the issue.

For example:

Problem: package doxygen-1:1.8.15-9.fc31.x86_64 requires graphviz, but
none of the providers can be installed
- conflicting requests
- nothing provides urw-base35-fonts needed by graphviz-2.40.1-44.fc31.x86_64

The same issue makes inkscape and some other packages uninstallable on
fedora 30 and rawhide.

I've looked at koji, src.fp.org, and the compose report e-mails

dnf crashes make fedpkg / mock unusable

Hi everybody,

Since about one or two days, I am completely unable to build any
packages with fedpkg locally, and even running dnf on the host system
is really crashy.

It looks like dnf crashes while it's refreshing repository metadata.
ABRT won't let me report the issue due to "low informational value" of
the backtrace, but it looks like SEGFAULT in libcurl:

Program terminated with signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
#0 0x00007fad55077f22 in ?? () from /lib64/libcurl.so.4
(...)

However, there's not been any recent curl update for f29 AFAICT.
