Hi! About piuparts -------------- piuparts  tests that .deb packages (as used by Debian) handle installation, upgrading, and removal correctly. http://piuparts.debian.org runs it on whole main Debian archive. New hardware ------------ Last week together with the help from the fine DSA folks I moved http://piuparts.debian.org away from the machine piatti.debian.org to the new cluster running at Bytemark . Many thanks to the CS Department of the University of Helsinki for running piatti.debian.org since at least 2006! Today piuparts.debian.org runs as two systems: pejacevic.debian.org acts as the piuparts-master and serves the webpages, while piu-slave-bm-a.debian.org runs 4 slaves on its 4 cores. That VM also has 12gb of RAM so that basically all installs happen in a ramdisk, leading to piuparts run times of 30-240 seconds. I'd say the setup is 12 times faster than the old. New suites ---------- We are testing a few new suites too, so that now we have: new: experimental 6915 packages, 6052 pass, 15 fail new: sid2experimental sid 38581 packages, 36374 pass, 241 fail new: sid-nodoc (see below for an explanation) testing2sid new: jessie 37407 packages, 37258 pass, 41 fail new: wheezy2jessie new: wheezy2bpo2jessie wheezy 35982 packages, 35902 pass, 9 fail squeeze2wheezy new: squeeze2bpo2wheezy squeeze 28119 packages, 27819 pass, 30 fail lenny2squeeze sid-nodoc  is a new "suite" where sid is being tested with no files in /usr/share/doc - this is allowed by policy but we expect some maintainer scripts to fail under this condition. Other candidates for such special "suites" are described in #354842, #403648, #56144, #561445. Please comment on which test cases you find most useful. The webpages served by http://piuparts.debian.org are updated twice a day now. adequate -------- sid-nodoc will also be the first suite to be completly tested with adequate  which from piuparts 0.52 will be automatically run if it's installed. http://piuparts.debian.org/sid/inadequate_issue.html shows some example reports. The first million ----------------- piuparts.debian.org now keeps just over a million logfiles: 275211 current logfiles and 729433 archived ones, which resulted in 1777 bugs  being filed of which 281 are still open. Help wanted ----------- piuparts is developed by three persons currently and it's fun! Please join the firstname.lastname@example.org mailinglist and start providing patches for any of the more than 50 open bugs against piuparts. Check out the "develop" branch from git  to get the latest development version. We absolutly appreciate patches from one time contributors! Keep them coming! Thanks ------ Our thanks go to the University of Helsinki and Bytemark for providing the hardware to run piuparts.debian.org, to the Debian System Administration team for keeping the systems up and running smoothly and to you, for reading so long, using piuparts and maintaining free software properly! :-) cheers, Holger  http://piuparts.debian.org/doc/README.html  http://bits.debian.org/2013/04/bytemark-donation.html  http://piuparts.debian.org/sid-nodoc/  http://packages.qa.debian.org/a/adequate.html  http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?tag=piuparts;email@example.com&archive=both  http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=piuparts/piuparts.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/develop
