Is There Anybody Out There?
I am seeing rather urgent kfreebsd problems unsolved for some time now
and I definitely won't manage to solve these by myself. So hopefully
some people reading here also want to make kfreebsd+wheezy happening and
can free some time for it.
- #654783 is now open for more than 2 months. Blocking python builds
for approximately that time and now blocking transitions (v-sim build
for netcdf transition)
- ruby testsuite is disabled -- we're running blind there
- Both of these test suites fail due to problems also visible outside
the test suite. llvm's testsuite (written in python) is special-cased
on kfreebsd and forced to run single-threaded there, mkvtoolnix'
build-system is written in ruby and isn't completing unless forced to
- Despite quite some effort from the maintainer (thanks!) openjdk-7
still doesn't build on the autobuilders and an increasing portion of
java software doesn't work with gcj. Admittedly, this will probably
need attention from my side as it's somewhat related to buildds, but
I'm open for any input and help!
At least for the python testsuite not much knowledge is needed at
all. Just building python2.7 source package untill it fails and looking
at the source of the failing test should reveal -- in most cases -- some
short series of thread+mostly IO patterns one needs to convert to C, see
if it still fails and report as bug against eglibc.
