Regarding the latest build failure
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
as you noted the latest upload of Apache to Unstable entirely failed and
it is mostly me who is to blame. The problem was the new dh(1) based
rules file which supports arch:indep builds. Up to now, the rules file
built architecture-dependent stuff anyway, that changed with the latest
upload. I just commited a fix addressing this problem. Previously, this
resulted in a build failure on buildds which are building binary
packages only (dpkg-buildpackage -B), but we're happily copying straight
into binary package (you know doom will find us ...).
Thinks like that break in such scenarios:
cp debian/apache2-doc.conf debian/apache2-doc/etc/apache2/conf.d/apache2-doc
Hence I moved that stuff into the override_dh_install-indep now which
avoids the problem as the directory is known to exist there (at least I
hope, but I'm confident as my tests with -B succeed).
However, architecture-independent-only builds are still broken and that
is not easily fixable because of our slightly weird build-% target which
builds and installs everything in a single step. After a short
discussion with Stefan in IRC I decided to ignore the problem for now
and keep things broken as they are, as hardly anyone ever will need a -A
In a more distant future I think, I will consider using the newest
debhelper feature of scripted debhelper configuration files (e.g.
debian/apache2-doc.install) which would ease our problem a bit.
Sorry for the noise.
with kind regards,
