Preparing 2.2r3 - hopefully final



Preparation of Debian GNU/Linux 2.2r3
=====================================

Up-to-date version on http://master.debian.org/~joey/2.2r3/

I'm still preparing 2.2r3 and will send reports so people can actually
comment on it.  I'm sortof responsible for this release, however
Anthony Towns has to give the final approval.  I, however, can and
will try to make his work as easy as possible in the hope to get the
next release out real soon now.

This mail hopefully is the last status mail that I have to send out
before 2.2r3 gets released.  Please check the section "Further
investigation" careful and issue a recompile for missing
architectures.

My requirements for packages to go into stable:

 1. The package fixes a security problem.  Quite helpful would be an
    advisory issued by the Security Team already.

 2. The package fixes a critical bug which can lead into data loss,
    data corruption or an overly broken system.

 3. The stable version of the package is not installable at all due to
    broken or unmet dependencies or broken installation scripts

 4. The package gets all architectures in stable in sync.

 5. All released architectures have to be in sync.

Packages that I probably reject:

  . Package that fixes non-critical bugs

  . Misplaced uploads, i.e. packages that were uploaded to 'stable unstable'

  . Packages that are out of sync

Accepted packages
-----------------

These packages should make it into stable.

acroread    updates   4.05-3      i386

	Anthony Fok says: Since multiple users have filed bugs against
	the NLS problem, it is safe to assume that this problem
	affects a significant minority of all users,.  (PDF files
	often undisplayable or unprintable without the fix unless they
	manually set LANG=C or something like that...)  So 4.05-3 does
	indeed: fix an "important" bug that inconvenience quite a
	few users; or for newbie users, they don't even know how to
	fix it with LANG=C...

	Changelog says:

	* Added a line in /usr/lib/mime/packages/acroread to force Netscape
	  use the Acroread PDF plugin.  Thanks to Thibaut Cousin for
	  reporting the bug and and to fellow Debian developer Ryan Murray
	  for providing the fix.  Closes: Bug#79333

	* Acroread has some NLS issues that broke viewing and printing for
	  international users when the decimal separator is not a dot.
	  A patch is applied to the acroread wrapper script to set LC_NUMERIC.
	  Thanks to Mirek, Serge Gavrilov, Sebastien Cabot for their bug reports,
	  and special thanks to Florian Siegesmund for providing a patch ported
	  from the netscape wrapper script written by H. Peter Anvin et al.
	  Closes: Bug#66586, #66593, #76840, #86473.

	* Moved /usr/X11R6/bin/acroread back to /usr/bin/acroread.  :-)

	* Added menu hints="PDF".  Thanks, Arthur Korn!  Closes: Bug#82321.

	* Acroread 4.05 does support type-in fields for fill-in forms.
	  Closes: Bug#36451.

boot-floppies  updates   2.2.22      all

	Install, uses an updated kernel and other improvements.

	Other architectures are not able to hold the release, since
	boot-floppies are normally out of sync.  There are too few
	porters around working on it.

	m68k: Christian recently relocated to the US, and no one else
	is willing to do boot-floppies.

	sparc: Ben Collins plans to build it on April 13th.

	arm: Peter Naulls or Wookey plan to build them within the next
	two weeks.

	powerpc: 2.2.22 does not build.  Dan Jacobowitz is going to
	build 2.2.23 for powerpc on April 13th (night).

	aj: It's actually non-free, not contrib.  The maintainer says
	that we ought to be doing this in order to be allowed to
	distribute it at all; I'm inclined to allow that in. (In any
	event, it's non-free, so it doesn't much matter if it breaks

elvis-tiny  updates   1.4-11      m68k, powerpc, sparc
elvis-tiny  updates   1.4-12      arm

	ACCEPT: 1.4-11
	REJECT: 1.4-12

	Versions completely out of sync.

	I would be convinced to let 1.4-11 go into stable to get
	architectures in sync again.  However, since -12 was uploaded
	for arm, they are out of sync again.  I'm not convinced the
	changes in -12 justify inclusion into stable.

	Changelog for 1.4-11:

	* The patch by Topi Miettinen to fix critical bug #74976 broke
	  file recovery, but also the :w command. Re-engineered the patch
	  so that the bug is fixed without any side-effects (closes: #77918)

	* Add explanation by the author to clear up copyright notice (closes: #72021)

	Changelog for 1.4-12:
	
	* Patch by David Douthitt to fix subsitition bug (closes: #73059)

	* Patch by David Douthitt to fix range bug (closes: #55407)

	* Move elvis-tiny to /bin (closes: #37571)

	* Install wrapper in /bin/vi that execs /usr/bin/vi if it is
	  present and /bin/elvis-tiny otherwise (closes: #72889)

	* Install alternative for 'editor' (closes: #85318)

	Arm compilation ready for upload on auric, requires 1.4-12 to
	be removed from proposed-updates

	Miquel says: 1.4-12 was never meant to go into 'stable', I
	made a typo in the changelog file. I filed a bug against
	ftp.debian.org to fix the situation, which was done pretty
	quickly. Weird that -12 got into the arm port.

	This looks quite screwed... However, since many of them, if
	not all, are new packages to stable, they are not likely to
	hurt.  Since there are important security updates to 2.2.18
	and above kernels at least most recent kernel versions need to
	be installed into stable.  pcmcia-cs is a convenience package.

mtools      updates   3.9.6-4           alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc

	Changelog says

	* The following patches are needed to get mtools running on ARM:

	    - updated config.guess and config.sub

	    - configure.in: recognize *-*-linux-gnu

	    - configure.in: add "-mstructure-size-boundary=8" to the
			    CFLAGS on ARM (closes: #79180)

	All arch's in sync now.

	Explanation from Adrian Bunk:

	It was meant to go in potato: All the patches (except the
	changed maintainer address) are ARM-specific or save (I don't
	expect bugs with "updated config.guess and config.sub") and
	shouldn't affect other platforms. Currently, any call to one
	of the programs on ARM gives the error message:

	Mtools has not been correctly compiled
	Recompile it using a more recent compiler

	(Joey) If Netwinders would have a floppy drive I would be
	convinced.

	Acorn and RiscPC have floppies.

	* Upstream fixes (see /usr/share/doc/postfix/RELEASE_NOTES), including:
	
	  - Postfix must no longer use DB 1.85 compatibility mode, because that
	    mode loses the file lock while building a table, so that table
	    lookups fail and MAIL IS LOST.  Closes: #78812.
	
	  - Confusing site_hog_factor is disabled by default.
	
	  - As required by RFC822, Postfix now inserts a generic To: header if
	    no destination header is not present.
	
	  - postfix sendmail command no interprets '.' as end of message, unless
	    the sendmail-compatible -i (or -oi) command line option is specified.

	Well, I'm not quite amused.  I made a diff between the version
	from stable and proposed-updates.  It's 9308 lines large (271kB).

	* To the release manager: -11 includes a security fix to the
	  tempfile module, which was vulnerable to a symlink attack.
	  Apart from that, it contains an important fix for a long outstanding
	  obscure bug in the signal handling code, and a few small
	  modifications to fix some other bugs.
	
	  This revision is a recompile of the unstable package for potato
	  (one minor modification to mpzmodule was necessary to compile).
	
	  I would think this revision should be included in the next point
	  release of potato.

task-chinese-s  updates   0.6potato1  all
task-chinese-t  updates   0.6potato1  all

	I'm not convinced this package should go into stable but
	Anthony Towns is.  Changelog:

	* 'locales' now depends on version >= 2.1.3-17 because LC_COLLATE
	   of zh_TW.Big5 was missing in Potato 2.2r2.

	* Corrected description of task-chinese-t: changed "Simplified"
	  to "Traditional".

	Maintainer: Anthony Wong <ypwong@debian.org>

	A *lot* of Chinese users got bitten by the bug in the locales
	package in 2.2r2: the zh_TW.Big5 LC_COLLATE file was missing
	due to a packaging bug that finally got fixed (by me) in
	2.1.13-17.  A *lot* of users complained that Chinese didn't
	work in Debian 2.2r2, and we saw their complaints on mailing
	lists and newsgroups.  That is why Anthony Wong uploaded this
	new version of task-chinese-t that depends on a correct
	locales package to make sure users' locales package get
	updated properly when they user "apt-get install
	task-chinese-t".

xfonts-cmex-big5p  updates   0.1-4potato5  all

	Dunno why this should go into stable.  Approved by Anthony
	Towns.  Changelog says:

	* Added code in postinst to rmdir /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/chinese
	  if it is empty or just contains font.dir and fonts.alias
	  (Closes: Bug#54994).

	* [debian/control]: Removed an extraneous colon at the end of the
	   Build-Depends line (Closes: #76505).

	Maintainer: Changwoo Ryu <cwryu@debian.org>

	Changwoo Ryu is not the maintainer of the cmex font; I am.
	The upload closes a bug that may cause X fail to start after
	an upgrade.  xfonts-cmex-big5p's former life,
	xfntbig5p-cmex24m, created the
	/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/chinese directory, but never removed
	it in postrm.  Apparently, it was causing some problems for
	users who upgraded from xfntbig5p-cmex24m to
	xfonts-cmex-big5p.  And of course, the second bug that it
	fixed, the extraneous colon at the end of the Build-Depends

	Changelog:

	* The Debian source archive xtide_2.2.orig.tar.gz was not pristine and
	  included tidal harmonics data downloaded from the XTide web site.
	  It was recently discovered that some of the data included in the above
	  archive may be in violation of copyright.  Therefore, XTide's author
	  removed the data in question from his web site and produced new
	  harmonics files which were included in this 2.2a Debian version.

	* Use "MacRISC" instead of the entire list of machine types
	  in <COMPATIBLE>.  One line change, should fix booting
	  on all recent machines.  (Well, one line change in four
	  places).


Further investigation
---------------------

These packages need further investigation.  One reason the package is
listed here could be that I'm not yet convinced this package should go
into stable, but don't want to reject it entirely at the moment.
Another reason could be that released and updated architectures are
not in sync yet.

icecast-server  updates   1.3.10-1    i386, m68k

	Alleged security update.

	Changelog says:

	* Several security exploits found to icecast.  No simple way to patch

	* old version, so upgrade to latest stable version from icecast.org

	* If questions or assistance needed join #icecast on openprojects.net IRC

	Do you have a documentation about said security exploits?
	That's still pending

	Is it something different than this one?

	"icecast" is a server used to distribute audio streams to compatible
	clients such as winamp, mpg123, xmms and many others.
	Matt Messier (mmessier@prilnari.com) and John Viega (viega@list.org)
	have identified several buffer overflow and format strings problems
	in Icecast that could be remotely exploited.
	Our latest update to this software changes the package to use an
	unprivileged user ("icecast") for the daemon, so the impact of this
	vulnerability is not as high. Recent distributions (CL >= 5.1) have
	this package compiled with StackGuard to make it more difficult to
	exploit buffer overflows.

	It's said to be.

	Clarification appreciated.

	1st I'm not convinced why a new version should go into stable.

	Gregg Berkholtz says: The following text is from the main
	SETI@Home page (http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu): "...
	SETI@home version 3.03 is available and mandatory for all
	supported platforms. Earlier versions are unable to contact
	our server, so please upgrade to version 3.03..."  Also, in
	potato, the install fails due to the fact that it tries to
	fetch a now non-existent .tgz file.

	Ok, this can be considered as reason for including it in
	stable.  However:

	2nd Versions are totally out of sync.  Fix that please.

	If architectures are synced I'll add it to the accept-list.

	New packages are missing for arm and m68k, they're missing
	upstream basically.  Thus referring packages should probably
	be removed from stable.

zope        updates   2.1.6-9     alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc

	Security upload, DSA 043

	Zope 2.1.6-7 indeed had two problems with two of the Hotfixes
	included, so I prepared a new version 2.1.6-8 and uploaded
	that to Incoming (target 'stable'):

	First, Hotfix_2000-10-02 broke some stuff in 2.1.6 (the README
	said that this Hotfox_2000-10-02 would apply to 2.2.x and
	later, which is obviously correct). Therefore 2000-10-02 was
	removed in 2.1.6-8. Obviously, the vulnerability fixed by this
	Hotfix was only introduced in Zope 2.2.0.

	Then, Hotfix_2000-10-11 wouldn't work with 2.1.6 out of the
	box, but since 2.1.6 was affected by the vulnerability
	nonetheless, I had to apply a fix to the Hotfix. Included in
	2.1.6-8 as well.

	This time, 2.1.6-8 has been tested on a potato system to a
	moderate degree.

	Sparc missing.

	No reason to make it into stable, changelog mentions unstable

	Maintainer: Chris Rutter <chris@armlinux.org>

cfengine      updates   1.5.3-6      alpha
cfengine      updates   1.6.2-0.1    m68k, powerpc, sparc

	Alleged security update.  BenC had already fixed it in
	1.5.3-6.  BSD sent out an advisory recently which confused our
	maintainer.  (he read too much glibc code or something :)

	Investigation: It looks like that upload fixes a problem which
	was already fixed in the stable version of »cfengine«.  Thus
	there is no reason for including this package.  Additionally
	Debian doesn't activate said »cfd« by default, it even won't
	run without manual interaction (conffile missing).

doc-linux-ko  updates   1:1999.04-3   all

	No reason why this should go into stable.  ChangeLog says:

	* Moved /usr/doc/ to /usr/share/doc (Closes: #91430)

	* Added Sections: and Priority: fields.

doc-linux-zh-s  unstable  2001.01-1     all
doc-linux-zh-s  updates   2001.01-1     all

	Misplaced upload that ought to be unstable only

	* New "upstream" release, downloaded on 4 Jan 2000.

	Maintainer: Anthony Wong <ypwong@debian.org>

dvorak7min  updates   1.4-5       arm, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc

	Misplaced upload that ought to be unstable only.

	Maintainer: Ivo Timmermans <ivo@debian.org>

freetype-tools  updates   1.4-0potato2  arm, i386, powerpc, sparc
freetype2-dev   updates   1.4-0potato2  arm, i386, powerpc, sparc
freetype2       updates   1.4-0potato2  arm, i386, powerpc, sparc

	Changelog says:

	* New upstream release, the final version of the FreeType 1 series.

	* Build for Debian 2.2 series (potato).

	* The configure options for kpathsea support in ttf2pk has
	  been changed upstream, and 1.4-0potato1 was inadvertently
	  built without kpathsea support.  Thanks to Philipp Lehman
	  for the bug report!  :-) Closes: Bug#83403.

	* Oops, I didn't know that debhelper (>= 2.1.0) and libtools
	  (>= 1.3.4-1) aren't in potato yet.  Fixed Build-Depends
	  line.  Thanks to fellow Debian developer Dan Jacobowitz for
	  letting me know.

	Alpha and m68k missing freetype-tools freetype2-dev freetype2

	Maintainer: Anthony Fok <foka@debian.org>

g2          updates   0.40-2      i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc

	Changelog says:

	* New maintainer.

	* Updated description - g2 site moved since last release.

	* Added dependency on libgd-gif1.  Closes: Bug#61124

	Arm and alpha missing

	Maintainer: Eric Cain <ecain@debian.org>

gcc         stable    1:2.95.2-13    alpha, i386, powerpc, sparc
gcc         stable    1:2.95.2-13.1  arm, m68k
gcc         updates   1:2.95.2-13.1  sparc

	Changelog says "NMU\nAdd new patch for ARM" though this is an
	upload for sparc and arm is already in stable.

	I'm not quite convinced we should update a compiler in stable
	w/o proper need.  Syncing versions would be good, but this
	would introduce an untested compiler package.

	Philip Blundell wrote: From what I remember, the extra patch
	that was added in -13.1 is only applied when building for ARM.
	So the new SPARC version is benign but useless - it'll be
	exactly the same as -13.  I'd be inclined to leave it out.

hztty       updates   2.0-3potato4  arm, i386, m68k, sparc

	New package for stable

	Changelog says:

	* Compilation problem on Alpha architecture is now fixed!  Special
	  thanks to fellow Debian developer Paul Slootman who sent me the patch!
	  Closes: Bug#55251.

	* An hopeful upload for Debian 2.2r3; hztty didn't get into Debian 2.2
	  because of Bug#55251.  Now that Paul has fixed this "Can't build from
	  source" bug, I hope hztty could get into future Debian 2.2 releases
	  if there is enough room on the CD-ROMs.  :-)

	Alpha and powerpc missing

	Maintainer: Anthony Fok <foka@debian.org>

koules      updates   1.4-1.3     sparc

	Security update, changelog says:

	* Non-maintainer release by security team

	* Fix trivial buffer overflow in init() code

	* Change Iconfig to not enable the asm stuff since the modern gcc
	  doesn't accept it

	However:

	1. There is no source

	2. No other arch is mentioned

	3. On Wed, 22 Nov 2000 22:06:53 +0100, an advisory was issued
	   telling people that Debian is not vulnerable to the koules
	   problem.

latex2rtf   stable    1.1-6       arm, m68k, powerpc
latex2rtf   stable    1.8aa-2     alpha, i386, sparc
latex2rtf   updates   1.8aa-4     alpha, arm, i386, sparc

	Changelog does not convince me to push it into stable:

	* Upload to stable to overcome the "can't build from source" bug that
	  breaks autobuild on some architectures.

	* Add build dependency on debhelper.

	m68k and powerpc missing, if they are uploaded I shall accept the upload.

	Maintainer: Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org>

liece-dcc   updates   1.4.3.0.20000829cvs-1  powerpc

	Misplaced upload, it mentions "stable unstable" it's a new
	upstream version

locale-ko   updates   4-6         all

	Fixing some bugs, but playing with conflicts against
	libc which apparently is dangerous. ChangeLog says:

	4-5: * Added Conflicts to libc (<<2.1.94). (Closes: #72552, #74567)

	4-6: * Modified Conflicts to libc (>>2.1.94) again.
	  Because it can cause removing packages depending on libc.

	Reading the bugreport, having it talk about woody, I'm
	entirely not convinced this package should go into stable.

	Maintainer: Chu-yeon Park <kokids@debian.org>

modutils    updates   2.3.11-10    sparc
modutils    updates   2.3.11-13    i386

	Stable has newer versions already and all arch's are in sync.

realplayer  updates   8.0.1       i386

	Problem!

	1st - The version in stable is unusable since the non-free
	package dissappeared from the real site.

	2nd - The version in proposed-updates is fucked up and must
	not be installed in stable.

	Brian Russo <wolfie@debian.org> has uploaded a new version to
	unstable to see if it works.  If it does he uploads a new
	version for stable.  He can do that at any time.

	Joey says: One comment, on realplayer -- the version of the
	installer in stable does not currently work, since Real has
	released a new version of realplayer and the old version is no
	longer available[1]. So the package should either be removed
	from stable or updated.

sharc       updates   2.1-2       all

	No reason why this package should go into stable.  ChangeLog says:

	* Rebuilt package. Closes #91065, #91654

trueprint   updates   5.1-8       i386, powerpc, sparc

	I'm not convinced this package should go into stable, sorry
	Blinder, but we already discussed this...  Small chance: aj
	has the final say.  Changelog says:

	* fixed a typo in the config file which causes the program to segfault
	  when useing the -P option, with which one can specify where to print
	  the output; Closes: #73042;
	
	* removed wrong control information:
	    - Build-Depends: lpr | lprng
	    - Suggests: diff
	
	* Updated Maintainer field to my official Debian address

	alpha, arm and m68k missing

	Maintainer: Othmar Pasteka <othmar@debian.org>

wdm         updates   1.20-0.0potato1  arm

	Wth should this package go into stable?  The changelog scares me:

	* Non-maintainer upload for potato, sponsored by Anthony Fok.

	* New upstream version.  Closes: #59945.

	* Fix package build problems in debian/rules.  Closes: #67866, #67867.

	* Fix 'NoChange' with an Xsession wrapper.  Closes: #59621, #61244.

	* Call update_wdm_wmlist in init file.  Closes: #34680.

	* Insists on PAM fail delay even if getpwnam fails.  Closes: #67166.

	* Disable running xconsole by default.  Closes: #56918.

	* New non-squashed logo from Daniel Patterson.  Closes: #48696.

	* Added Build-Depends in debian/control.

xcingb      stable    2.3.02-3.1  alpha, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc
xcingb      updates   2.3.02-3.2  arm, m68k

	Misplaced upload?  It mentions 'stable unstable', it's an NMU
	as well and doesn't fix any bugs listed in the BTS.

xfonts-baekmuk  updates   2.0-3        all

	Dunno why this should go into stable, changelog says:

	* Added Won-Kyu Park's hintings of gulim10b?, batang10b?, gulim12b?
	  from <http://zinc.skku.ac.kr/~wkpark/baekmuk/>

	Maintainer: Changwoo Ryu <cwryu@debian.org>

xtel        updates   3.2.1-4potato1  arm, i386, m68k, powerpc, sparc

zsh         updates   3.1.9.dev8-6        i386, powerpc

	Three versions uploaded to stable, first to 'stable unstable',
	doesn't show careful destination to stable, I'm sorry.  Upload
	fixes only two normal bugs.
