Some notes I took during the meeting:


alexm, kanashiro, nickm, ntyni, dod (silent), carnil (partially), gregoa


from https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DebianPerlGroup/LHF/Agenda

* Make all the packages autopkgtestable
* Upgrade packages to the latest upstream release
* Sprint May 2016, Zurich
* DebCamp, DebConf, Sprint at DebCamp, BoF at DebConf
* lintian: hardening-no-bindnow and friends
* Perl 5.22 cleanup:
  - https://lintian.debian.org/tags/versioned-dependency-satisfied-by-perl.html
  - https://lintian.debian.org/tags/mentions-deprecated-usr-lib-perl5-directory.html
  - https://lintian.debian.org/tags/libmodule-build-perl-needs-to-be-in-build-depends.html

Sprint Zurich

* alexm to send a mail to the list about travel expenses
* gregoa to follow up with ho(s)tel findings
* TBD: link from general sprints page + announce


* Not yet clear who will attend

New lintian hardening-no-* warnings

* Q: Add them manually to all arch:any packages, ignore, hope for
  dpkg, something else?
* "adding hardening+=all to individual packages one by one doesn't
  seem very productive"
* --pkg-perl debhelper addon? Add them to perl_* build systems in
* "it would be nice to have some statistics on possible breakage of
  pkg-perl packages with hardening=+all. [patching debhelper] changing
  /etc/dpkg/buildflags.conf locally to set that and running a test
  rebuild should do."
* Maybe Dom can run his test machinery, otherwise ntyni can look at
* "+all begs for future breakage", enable only what's needed -->
  bindnow and pie (dpkg-buildflags(1)) --> 
  export DEB_BUILD_MAINT_OPTIONS=hardening=+bindnow,+pie
* Wait for test results before going on; adding flags to some
  individual packages ok.

Bugs & packages

* Some bugs have been filed during the meeting as well :)
* Work on https://lintian.debian.org/tags/libmodule-build-perl-needs-to-be-in-build-depends.html

Next meeting: 2016-04-21, 18:00 UTC, #debian-perl
