2004-09-05  Ryan Murray  <rmurray@debian.org>

	* buildd-mail: get filelist from changes file first when processing
	ACCEPTED/INSTALLED mail.  Limit filename pattern to valid filename
	characters if the changes file doesn't exist.  Solves possible
	remote execution vulnerability (non-existant in default setup).

2003-11-05  Ryan Murray  <rmurray@debian.org>

	* sbuild: display toolchain package versions
	* sbuild: get build-essential information from the chroot, not
	the root.
	* sbuild: new --use-snapshot option that installs the gcc-snapshot
	package as a build-depends, and sets the environment variables needed
	to use it.
	* buildd-mail: attempt to move installed packages to the apt cache dir
	rather than deleting them.  This saves bandwidth, as they will not
	need to be downloaded again if they are build-depends, but uses a lot
	of diskspace.
	* wanna-build: add --clean-db option to free unused space in the dbm
	file
	* sbuild: set the state of installed build-dependencies to purge after
	installation, so that in case of a crash, dpkg -P --pending should
	remove all packages that no longer need to be there.
	* sbuild: add $conf::build_env_cmnd to setup the build environment
	for sparc32 building on sparc64 (and other things?)
	* sbuild:  add --binNMU=# parameter for use with --make-binNMU
	for the case where more than one binNMU is needed between
	upstream releases.  defaults to 1.
	* sbuild: remove unused --store-built-packages
	* buildd: don't call sbuild with --store-built-packages
	* sourcedeps-makerev: disable for now, needs a rewrite for apt
	* update-sourcedeps: comment call to sourcedeps-makerev for now
	* buildd-mail: check for a Distribution: line in signed changes files,
	and at least one file.
	* buildd: call apt-get autoclean after an apt-get update that updates
	the apt package cache.
	* buildd-uploader: don't upload what's in the current directory if we
	can't chdir to the upload dir.
	* buildd: fork and call setsid so we don't have a controlling terminal.
	* abort-current-build: use /bin/kill instead of shell builtin
	* add EXIT-DAEMON-PLEASE flagfile.  buildd checks it once per loop
	and will exit if found, taking the file with it.  sbuild checks it
	after finishing each build, and will exit when finished a job.
	* Patch from Anthony Towns <ajt@debian.org> to sort standard and higher
	priorities higher, and add it to the front of the default order
	characters (the new character is S).  This has the effect of making
	standard and higher uncompiled sort higher than all optional and
	extra, which is ideal for Debian.

2001-01-11  Roman Hodek  <roman@caldera.de>

	* FetchFile.pm: Various fixes for package pools (tnx to Dan for
	patches).

	* sbuild.conf.local: New variable %dist_aliases can be used to
	translate distribution names (entries under dists/ on a mirror).
	Currently needed for strange unstable -> sid symlink, which IMHO
	should point to woody instead.

2000-10-19  Roman Hodek  <roman@caldera.de>

	* sbuild: By Dan: Make sure that /etc/ld.so.conf is readable
	before building.

	* sbuild: Introduced local source dependency overrides with
	%conf::srcdep_over defined in some config file. You can replace
	deps on arbitrary packages with something else, e.g.
	$srcdep_over{'libfoo1-dev'} = [qw(libfoo2 >= 2.0)];

	* buildd-mail: Added preliminary PGP/MIME support by Dan.

2000-06-27  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: There are two new section types for special
	dependencies. The first is 'prepre', which contains a shell script
	like 'pre', but the script is run *before* dependencies are
	installed ('pre' is run afterwards).
	The second new section is 'unpack'. You can list a number of
	source package names there. sbuild will fetch the .dsc files and
	unpack the source trees in the build dir. After the build, those
	trees will be removed again. This can replace the dpkg-source
	calls that were used in pre scripts. Their problem were that they
	needed access to a local mirror, which can't be guaranteed now
	with chroot environments.

2000-06-20  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: For chrooted builds, call apt-get with a bunch of
	options to relocate all relevant files instead of chrooting apt
	itself. This makes it unnecessary to have the Debian archive to be
	available from inside the chroot environment. Also dpkg and
	apt-cache calls are chrooted with options now.

	* buildd-addpkg: Also here apt-get is called with options instead
	of chrooting it.

2000-06-19  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd-addpkg: New option --chroot=DIR (can be given multiple
	times). Causes apt-get update to be run chrooted for that dirs,
	too.

	* sbuild: If build was chrooted and produced source-deps, call
	buildd-addpkg with --chroot options for all dists greater or
	equal to the current one to get apt caches correctly updated.

	* sbuild, sbuild.conf: New config var
	@ignore_watches_no_build_deps. Watch packages listed there aren't
	reported if the package has no Build-Depends. This is for things
	like debhelper and debstd which are considered essential with
	the central source deps but not with Build-Depends.

2000-06-13  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Also execute shell scripts of special dependencies in
	chroot environment.

2000-06-09  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* rbuilder: Has been modified to use chroot environments. So you
	finally can build stable packages on kullervo now without shared
	library version problems!
	It also uses wanna-build again, but doesn't give back packages
	anymore so that the stable build daemon won't take them.

2000-06-08  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Implemented building in chroot environments. See
	README.chroot-building for details.

	* buildd-setup-chroot: New script for setting up a chroot
	environment for sbuild. See README.chroot-building for details.

	* README.chroot-building: New documentation for the above.

2000-06-06  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: New option --source (-s): Also build source package,
	i.e. don't call dpkg-buildpackage with -b or -B. Also
	automatically switches on --purge=never.

2000-05-30  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* do-merge-{packages,quinn}: Rewritten in Perl and moved all
	configuration to /etc/wanna-build.conf.local. It was really a mess
	that those two scripts still had to be edited by hand... Also,
	they support local mirrors and quinn-diff files now.

	* buildd-addpkg: Local packages are now installed separated by
	distributions to ~/AddPkg/DIST. With this, you can exclude e.g.
	unstable packages from being installed on a frozen system by
	excluding that directory from /etc/apt/sources.list. buildd-addpkg
	has a new --dist option that defaults to unstable. --clean mode
	always operates on all distributions.

	* sbuild: Now calls buildd-addpkg with --dist option. Also does
	automatically install freshly built packages only if
	$conf::system_level is a "greater" or equal distribution that the
	distro the pkg was built for. For example, if the system level is
	"frozen", packages built for unstable won't be installed
	automatically.

2000-05-16  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Do a chmod -R go+rX on the build tree before building,
	so that files are readable. Some .orig.tar.gz's contain rather
	restrictive permissions that are simply inconvenient.

2000-03-03  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: The deleting of Arch: all packages was a really Bad
	Idea (TM)... It deleted all entries where *at least* one binary
	packages was Arch: all, and that really wasn't what I meant...
	Reverted this.

	The correct solution: There's a --merge-source now that reads the
	Sources.gz file (uncompressed) for a distribution and looks at
	Arch: all packages. If such a package also exists in the database
	with a less or equal version, the entry is deleted.

2000-03-02  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: If a package with Architecture: all appears in the
	database, it probably just has changed to this arch. Just delete
	it, it's not needed anymore.

	* wanna-build: If a package disappears from quinn-diff in states
	Building or Upload, delete is as well as it would have been
	Needs-Build, Failed, or Dep-Wait.

	* buildd-mail: Fixed a bug that caused check_building_any_dist to
	fail. As a consequence, a package still could be deleted if it
	became outdated and still was building in another dist.

2000-03-01  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: Introduced new concept of failed categories. See
	README.failcat for more details. (New option --category == -c)

	* README.failcat: new file.

	* wanna-build: New options --min-age=DAYS (-a DAYS) and
	--max-age=DAYS to restrict listed package depending on the time of
	last state change.

	* buildd-reply.el:There are two new functions:
	buildd-bug-change-category changes the failed category of a failed
	package; you use it from a mail buffer with a reply to the bug
	report (if the maintainer hasn't changed the subject...); you are
	prompted for a new category, which can be TAB-expanded.
	buildd-bug-comment adds next text to the fail message of a
	package; used the same way as buildd-bug-change-category above,
	but you can insert arbitrary text; with [CAT] you can also
	set/change the category.

	I've also changed keybindings: C-c C-a (formerly
	buildd-bug-ack-append) is now a prefix for 3 bindings that append
	something to fail messages:
	C-c C-a C-n -> buildd-bug-ack-append (i.e., append a bug number)
	C-c C-a C-a -> buildd-bug-comment (append arbitrary text)
	C-c C-a C-c -> buildd-bug-change-category

	* buildd: In get_changelog, remove an epoch if using the package
	name as part of a file name.

	* sbuild: Also match error message "dpkg: status database area is
	locked" from apt and retry call later.

2000-02-23  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: Added a warning for packages that have a newer
	version in the database than in quinn-diff, and the state is one
	of Installed, Install-Wait, Reupload-Wait, or Not-For-Us. In those
	cases, the newer version is questionable... it could be caused by
	a lame mirror, or it is an error in the db. During --merge-quinn,
	wanna-build now checks for such cases and if it detects some, it
	sends a mail about them to the admin.

2000-02-16  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Fix support for !needs-no-XXX deps (should now work as
	advertised :-)

	* sbuild: A package log contains now the version number of sbuild.

2000-02-15  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Improved warnings about missing central source
	dependencies: The list of package build dependencies is now not
	only dependency-expanded, but also virtual packages among them are
	expanded to an alternative of all providing packages. That way, a
	concrete package in the central deps shouldn't any longer be
	reported as missing if the build deps contain a corresponding
	virtual package. (E.g.: build dep is libncurses-dev, central deps
	contain libncurses5-dev.)

2000-02-11  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Do not show warnings that !this-package-does-not-exist
	or !needs-no-XXX type dependencies are missing in the package
	build dependencies.

	* sbuild: Do not activate watches for dependencies of build deps
	and not for packages where a !needs-no-XXX dep exists.

2000-02-04  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: --no-build now also propagates the new state to
	other distributions, which makes it consistent to the other
	actions.

	* wanna-build: new options --no-propagation (-N) and
	--no-down-propagation (-D) which suppress state propagation at all
	or to ``smaller'' distributions, resp. The former is sometimes
	useful for manually fixing things (e.g. a package fails only in
	stable due to the build environment, but not in unstable).
	--no-down-propagation is useful for the build daemon to avoid
	unwanted propagations.

	* buildd, buildd-mail, buildd-uploader, sbuild: Use
	--no-down-propagation in wanna-build calls.

2000-01-28  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Finally let it also accept abbrevs for distributions (s,
	f, and u).

	* buildd-reupload: Now finally can completely reconstruct a
	.changes from the source package and the existing binary packages
	that should be re-uploaded for different distributions. This
	finally makes the script usable :-)

	* buildd-reupload added to install and update-buildd scripts.

	* sbuild: New option --make-binNMU='message'. This will create a
	new changelog entry for a binary-only NMU. The message in the
	option will be used as description in the changelog (it may
	contain newlines and will be formatted properly). Please note that
	the version number in the package argument(s) still must be the
	existing, non-NMU versions so that sources can be downloaded. The
	version in the logfile etc. will be modified automatically. An
	bin-NMU entry won't be created twice in the same build tree.

2000-01-27  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd: Remove $DISPLAY from the environment. The variable
	doesn't make sense when running in the background.

2000-01-20  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd-mail: Allow "give-back" as answer to a Should-I-Build
	question.

2000-01-18  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd-mail: "not-for-us" or "no-build" are now valid answers to
	a Should-I-Build question. This is handy if a package is now arch
	specific or the like.

	* buildd-mail: Fix outdated handling (packages are only outdated
	in a distrib if they were reported to be so...)

	* buildd-mail: If a package is reported as being outdated now,
	skip the build and/or delete the files only if we're not still
	building it in any other distribution.

2000-01-13  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Pass the --force-confold option to dpkg only if the
	version is before 1.4.1.18. Those old versions don't understand
	the option and fail. Newer versions need it, because they fail if
	they ask the conffile question and stdin is /dev/zero.

1999-12-17  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: even more improved printout of missing central
	dependencies check. First sbuild reads the list of build-essential
	packages (as according to policy, from the build-essential
	package) and expands its dependencies. Those packages are filtered
	out and separately. They should never be mentioned in
	Build-Depends. Next, dependencies of the Build-Depends are
	expanded and those missing deps are also printed separately. It
	depends on the circumstances if those should be reported. This all
	together should make bug reports based on the sbuild warnings more
	reliable.

1999-12-08  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: allow multi-line build dependencies when reading a .dsc.
	Those are actually forbidden is you look into packaging manual
	closely, but too many packages use them...

	* sbuild: Fix a bug in reading packages status: If a name was both
	provided and a real pkg name (probably an old one), the
	"not-installed" on the real pkg could set the installed status to 0.

	* sbuild: Special dependencies (those with a '*') are always
	implicitly overrides, i.e. they're added to package-supplied build
	dependencies.

1999-12-03  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: When using source deps from a .dsc, compare them with
	the central deps and report any missing things. It seems that many
	packages lack some deps at the first try, and this aids reporting
	bugs.

1999-11-30  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: When a package has its own source dependencies in the
	.dsc, store them in a file debian/.sbuild-build-deps in the build
	tree. This is needed when the package is later built again and the
	.dsc isn't available anymore. If a sbuild argument is a directory
	(building from tree without .dsc), look if this file exists and if
	yes, read build deps from it.

	* sbuild: Print a message to the log if package build deps are
	used. It already happened sometimes that I searched for an error
	in madd_sd-* or andrea, but the bad dependencies came from the
	packages :-) Such a message at least reminds you where to look...

1999-11-12  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd: There's a new config variable, $secondary_daemon_threshold,
	in buildd.conf. It's intended for secondary daemons that should
	start building only if the primary daemon(s) are overloaded. The
	threshold gives a number of Needs-Build packages that must be
	reached before the secondary starts off.

1999-10-29  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* Fixed buildd statistics: The packages given back by sbuild
	weren't recorded, so some figures were a bit corrupted (specially
	processed). sbuild now appends 1 for each given-back pkg if it's
	given the new option --stats-dir. buildd passes that option.
	buildd-watcher knows about the new stats file and prints it in the
	summary.

	* buildd-addpkg: If apt-get update fails with "E: Could not get
	lock", try again a minute later.

	* sbuild: Make apt always pass --force-confold to dpkg. The
	</dev/null trick doesn't work anymore with dpkg >= 1.4.1.18 (it
	gives an error on the conffile question if it read EOF.)

	* sbuild: If using an already unpacked source tree, check if it's
	really the version we want to build. (The requested version could
	be different in the Debian revision, and you can't see that on the
	directory's name.)

1999-10-25  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* New script buildd-clean-upload: It removes all jobs (.changes +
	associated files + .upload) that are installed in the archive
	(must be local or NFS mounted). I needed this now, because
	INSTALLED mails from maor-installer don't come through at the
	moment. But it's more a quick fix that can be useful later, too,
	than a real part of buildd.

1999-10-21  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* New script buildd-addpkg that maintains a private package
	archive for apt. buildd-addpkg copies a list of (reshly built)
	packages to ~/AddPkg and updates the Packages file there. Older
	versions of the pkg that existed in AddPkg/ are removed. Then
	apt-get update is called to make the installed pkgs available for
	apt. If called with --clean, buildd-addpkg checks apt knows about
	the packages in AddPkg/ from somewhere else and removes those.
	~buildd/AddPkg should be in the last line of your
	/etc/apt/sources.list.

	* sourcedeps-makerev: New script that builds a reverse index of
	source dependencies, i.e. a list of all packages that are a
	referenced as source dependency. It is called now by
	update-sourcedeps after installing a new file, and the reverse
	index is stored as /etc/source-dependencies-DIST.rev. It is read
	by sbuild if called with --store-built-packages.

	* sbuild: New option --store-built-packages=PROG. PROG is a
	program that makes built packages available for apt and is usually
	buildd-addpkg. If this option is given, sbuild checks after each
	build if any of the produced packages is a source dependency. If
	yes, it is scheduled for installation. Also installed are packages
	that already scheduled packages depend on (maybe via Provides:)
	and that were also built. All those packages are passed to PROG,
	which makes the available for apt.
	Finally, if one of the src-dep packages is already installed and
	it's not in @conf::no_auto_upgrade, apt is called to install the
	new version.

	* buildd: Now calls sbuild with --store-built-packages=buildd-addpkg
	if that tool exists and $conf::no_store_packages isn't set
	(default).

1999-10-06  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd-mail: before actions on retry, fail, dep-ret, man,
	give-back and should-I-build replies are executed, check that the
	state is Building in the given version. This should avoid that old
	mails (stalled in a queue somewhere) cause wrong things to be done
	on outdated stuff. Little exception: If a "fail" answer appends a
	bug number, the required state is Failed instead.
	Also, on should-I-build replies there is a check for outdated
	packages.

	* buildd-mail: There are now different error messages for the
	reply mail and the log. Often the messages were too verbose for
	the log.

	* buildd-mail: Logging of queue daemon messages can be turned off
	by $log_queued_messages = 0 in ~/buildd.conf.

	* buildd-mail: Before moving a package to the upload dir, every
	.deb is checked for correct md5 checksum. It happened in the past
	that a package was built twice (due to errors) overwriting the
	.debs. And if you then acknowledged the older log the md5sums didn't
	match, resulting in later errors in the queue or on master.

	* buildd: Removed message "DEBUG: not taking ... because given
	back recently".

1999-09-22  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd-mail: Fix a bug that caused outdated packages to be added
	to REDO sometimes on "retry" mails.

1999-09-02  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* finish-build: I've added this script I'm using for some time to
	CVS now. It's used to finish builds that aborted and that were
	fixed manually. It runs the binary-arch if no debian/files exists,
	generates a .changes and sends a mail like sbuild would have done.

1999-09-01  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* {wanna-build,sbuild,buildd}.conf: All config files split into
	local and shared parts. The shared parts are to be modified by the
	buildd author only. The local parts contains some variables of
	local nature (mail addresses etc.) and also can override shared
	values. To keep compability with the previous names, the local and
	shared files are named as follows:

	              | shared file             | local file
	 -------------+-------------------------+----------------------------
	  wanna-build | /etc/wanna-build.conf   | /etc/wanna-build.conf.local
	  sbuild      | /etc/sbuild.conf        | /etc/sbuild.conf.local
	  buildd      | /etc/buildd.conf.global | ~buildd/buildd.conf

	Except for buildd.conf, the shared file reads in the local file at
	the end. For buildd.conf, it's the other way round.
	On installation the shared files can be replaced without
	questions, so don't make modifications there. These should go into
	the local files.

	* buildd: Additionally check /etc/buildd.conf.global for changes
	and re-read configuration then.

	* buildd-mail, buildd-watcher: Add a special check for error
	mails: If more than 5 mails from a mailer daemon are received
	within less than $conf::error_mail_window (default 8 hours),
	they're not forwarded anymore to avoid possible mail loops. (This
	happens if the error is about the admin address itself.) The dates
	of error mails are stored in the new file ~buildd/mail-errormails.
	buildd-watcher regularily purges old entries from this file and
	removes it if it becomes empty.

1999-08-27  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: --auto-give-back has a new optional argument giving the
	user and hostname where to call wanna-build (like $conf::sshcmd of
	buildd). This is needed that sbuild can do give-backs when there's
	no local wanna-build. If the argument is missing, wanna-build is
	called locally. Otherwise, it's used like

	  --auto-give-back=[[WBUSER@]USER@]HOST

	An ssh calls is made as USER to HOST, and wanna-build called there
	with --user=WBUSER. If WBUSER is missing, it's the same as USER.
	If both are missing, the local username is used for both.

	* buildd: Passes the new --auto-give-back arg to sbuild now if
	$conf::sshcmd is set. Also correctly uses
	--user=$conf::wanna_build_user when taking packages.

1999-08-26  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd-reply.el: Fixed several problems of alphabetical ordering
	with buildd-edit-manual-source-deps (C-c C-s). New function
	buildd-add-sd-map (C-c C-v) for editing sd_map files.

1999-08-23  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: When merging a Packages file, ignore entries for
	foreign architectures (including Arch: all). This is necessary for
	merging the Packages from proposed-updates, and this includes
	.debs for all archs.

	* do-merge-packages: Also merge Packages from proposed-updates.

	* Many changes in sbuild:

	* Support for alternatives in src-deps. This means you can have
	dependencies like "foo | bar (>= 1.2)". The installation is
	handled as follows:
	 - If at least one alternative is installed in a matching version,
	   nothing has to be done.
	 - If at least one alternative is installed, but in the wrong
	   version, the first such alternative is tried to upgrade.
	 - If no alternative is installed, the first one is installed.
	 - If all alternatives would need a downgrade to satisfy the
	   version constraint, sbuild bails out that it can't do this.
	The decision which package to install or upgrade is made before
	apt is called and can't be changed later (yet). This means that,
	e.g., if the first alternative is not installable but the second
	would be, the package fails nevertheless. I might work on this in
	future...

	* Src-deps can now contain the [ARCH1 !ARCH2] architecture
	restrictions that will be used soon by the Build-Depends: field in
	the .dsc. The semantics are: The dependency is ignored if the
	current build arch isn't mentioned in the list, or if it's
	mentioned with a '!' prefix. The arch restrictions come after the
	version relation (if present) and apply to single alternatives.
	Example:

	  foo: svgalib (>= 1.3) [i386 alpha] | svgalib-dummy [!i386 !alpha]

	* sbuild now checks the .dsc file for Build-{Depends,Conflicts}:
	fields and uses those as src-deps if present. (The *-Indep variants
	are also used if the --arch-all option is given.) The deps from
	the .dsc override the ones from /etc/source-dependencies*, as they
	are considered to be newer and/or more exact. However, there's
	still a way to add dependencies to packages that come already with
	src-deps: If you prefix a dep with '&' in the central src-dep
	file, those deps won't be thrown away.

	* There's a new feature of abbreviations in src-deps. You can
	define them by

	  abbrev FOO = foo, bar, yxy

	anywhere in the source-dependencies-* file. Then FOO can be used
	just like any other package name. It will be replaced by "foo,
	bar, yxy" later. Abbrevs can't be used with version relations and
	inside alternatives.

	* New options: --arch-all (-A) also builds Arch: all packages
	(uses  dpkg-buildpackage -b instead of -B); --add-depends (-a)
	like -f, but doesn't override existing deps completely but adds to
	them.

	* sbuild now only parses the src-deps for package which should be
	compiled. This should reduce the start-up time a bit.

1999-08-10  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: Allow section names like non-US/non-free when
	parsing a quinn-diff. (The section can contain letters, digits, -,
	and / now.)

	* do-merge-{packages,quinn}: New config var $section, can be more
	than just main (default is "main non-US/main"). Both scripts now
	import data from all sections in $section. ftp.uni-erlangen.de
	provides the necessary quinn-diff data.
	Both scripts now also print the names of the files downloaded and
	which will be merged.

	* sbuild: Virtual packages as source dependencies didn't really
	work yet... An alternative was installed ok, but the following
	consistency check didn't see the provided package, because it used
	dpkg --status, and that doesn't know virtual packages.
	Solution: get_dpkg_status() now directly reads
	/var/lib/dpkg/status (which should be a bit faster, too) and
	parses the Provides: fields of installed packages. Provided
	packages are considered installed for src-dep purposes.

	* sbuild: Make some more messages go to the package log (instead
	of the sbuild log, where they didn't belong). Also fix the
	stdout/stderr redirecting when running scripts of special deps.

	* FetchFile.pm: Redirect output of ftpget (lftp code).

	* Buildd.pm: Increase lock_interval from 5s to 15s, giving a total
	try time of 30m. I've seen cases where a valid lock has been
	broken because it existed too long. This shouldn't happen.

1999-08-09  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd-mail, buildd-uploader: support for non-US packages
	There's a new dir upload-non-US for packages that should go to the
	non-US server. buildd-mail automatically recognizes such packages
	if the .deb sections contain the string "non-US"
	(case-insensitive). Also packages listed in @conf::non_us_packages
	are moved to this upload dir.
	Acknowledged packages are moved to the appropriate upload dir
	(upload/ or upload-non-US/). When removing a job from the upload
	dir (either if it has been installed into the archive, or on the
	upload-rem command), check if the changes file is in upload-non-US
	and use this dir then.
	buildd-uploader simply uploads packages from both dirs. The
	dupload in upload-non-US use a --to option of
	$conf::dupload_to_non_us (default "non-us"). Please make sure you
	can upload there without questions for passwords etc.

	* buildd.conf: New config vars $dupload_to_non_us and
	@non_us_packages.

	* sbuild.conf: Add non-US/main to @do_dists, remove non-us (seems
	obsolete).

1999-08-04  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: When taking a package, print the warning that
	previous version failed also if the previous state was
	Failed-Removed.

	* buildd*: Implemented the collecting of some statistical data.
	All the figures are written to files in ~/stats, where some script
	will pick them up. Written files are: taken, builds, uploads,
	failed, dep-wait, no-build, idle-time, and build-time.

	* buildd-watcher: Implemented statistics summary, which is mailed
	once per week.

	* buildd.conf: two new config vars: $statistics_period and
	$statistics_mail.

1999-08-03  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: I hope I've found out now what caused the
	HASH(0x........): fields which corrupted the databases from time
	to time. (It is something between unexpected Perl behaviour and a
	proper bug in perl-5.005.)

1999-07-28  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* rbuilder: Don't use wanna-build anymore at all -- it caused too
	many problems (If a package was given back, the new version was
	Needs-Build and the daemon grabbed it, but couldn't download the
	source; often distribution lines confused users; ...) The code is
	still there, but deactivated by $main::use_wb = 0.

	* rbuilder: Don't remove the build dir if upload failed or on
	.changes inconsistencies. Such stuff can probably be fixed
	manually and the packages doesn't need be rebuilt.

1999-07-27  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd: New config variable $idle_sleep_time (in buildd.conf)
	instead of hardwired pause of 5 minutes between list-needs-build
	calls.

	* wanna-build: --info -dist=all created non-existing databases
	(e.g. for frozen); fixed.

1999-07-23  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: Avoid that MTAs add domains to From: or To:
	addresses: Add the local domain to the to addr if it doesn't
	contain a domain yet. Also add a explicit From: header, as the MTA
	might use the plain username otherwise.

	* rbuilder: If the package can't be built or uploaded
	successfully, give it back so it can be retried later.

1999-07-21  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* FetchFile.pm: Made the FTP downloading (via the Perl-internal
	Net::FTP module, not lftp) more fault-tolerant. If the received
	file is smaller than expected, it is retried as long as each try
	increases the file size.

	* buildd-mail-wrapper now sets the umask to 022, because some
	mailers seem use 077, which makes the files in ~/upload unreadable
	for others.

1999-07-09  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* check-security-uploaded: New script; to be run from crontab of
	wanna-build db admin. It downloads the Packages files from
	security.debian.org and compares the packages there with the ones
	that 'rbuilder' is currently building. If such packages are found
	to be installed, they're set to 'Uploaded' to avoid old-build
	mails.

	* rbuilder: Now maintains a file "builders" where it stores
	package names + versions and the email addresses of the people who
	requested to build those packages. The addresses are used for
	old-build mails: They're forwarded to the responsible person
	instead of being rejected because they're not PGP-signed.

1999-06-21  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Also recognize new message "Package file ... is out of
	sync" from apt-get and run apt-get update.

1999-06-18  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* rbuilder, wanna-build-mail: Both now support also GnuPG for
	signing the mails.
	* wanna-build-mail: Now can also parse mails signed with MIME/PGP,
	like rbuilder.

1999-06-14  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: Now packages can also changed from Installed to
	Installed if a newer version than registered in the database
	appears in the Packages file. This can happen if someone uploads a
	package without any wanna-build interaction. Formerly, only the
	Installed-Version: was updated, but not Version:.

	* wanna-build: Don't use getlogin() anymore for determining the
	user name; it returns wrong results if su has been used (returns
	the user you su-ed from).

	* rbuilder: Keep the logs for all requested builds for 100 days in
	a logs/ subdir.

	* rbuilder: In error replies, quote the mail that caused the
	error.

	* rbuilder: If taking a package fails, report the wanna-build
	messages to the user.

	* rbuilder: Fix silly syntax error ($main::wanna-build instead of
	$main::wanna_build).

1999-06-09  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Fixed some silly errors with global patches: Accept them
	at all when parsing the source-dependencies file; fix the loop in
	apply_patches to handle the args consistently; don't let the build
	fail if a global patch didn't apply.

1999-06-08  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: When reading quinn-diff output, accept empty
	sections and priorities. (Those are generated by quinn-diff now on
	packages from proposed-updates.) The empty values are replaced by
	"unknown".

1999-06-04  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: When giving back a package, don't forget the --dist
	option to wanna-build.

	* sbuild: Added support for virtual packages in source
	dependencies. When sbuild tries to install such a package, apt-get
	will tell it which alternatives exist. One of these is substitued
	for the virtual package and apt-get will be retried. Which one to
	use is either determined by %conf::alternatives or more or less by
	random (first one listed).

1999-06-02  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Removed as many die's as possible. The error exit status
	caused by die can let buildd retry all jobs of this sbuild run,
	even if some have already been finished.

	* sbuild: Make sure that we're in the correct directory after a
	build (some chdir()s in error cases were missing). Also don't use
	chdir(".."), because we may have followed a symlink; better use
	the absolute path of the wanted dir.

	* sbuild: If the directory where a package should be unpacked
	already exists but is a symlink, then complain.

	* sbuild: With --batch write each finished job to a file
	SBUILD-FINISHED. buildd can look at this file if sbuild crashed
	for jobs that need not be rebuilt.

	* buildd: If sbuild exited with error status and hasn't dumped
	unfinished jobs to REDO itself, look for SBUILD-FINISHED to sort
	out jobs that don't need rebuilding.

	* check-old-builds: Add /usr/local/bin to $PATH if not included yet.

1999-06-01  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd-mail: Now creates the upload directory if it didn't exist
	yet. And if not all files belonging to an upload could be moved
	there, abort with an error.

	* Removed some more hardcoded paths to binaries in buildd and
	buildd-watcher.

1999-05-31  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: The du after the build (to get the total space required)
	is now run under sudo, because under some debian/tmp-like some
	dirs can not be accessible to normal users.

	* buildd.conf: Added build/{HOLD-BACK,Attic} to $no_warn_pattern.

	* In all scripts remove calls to aliases of wanna-build (the
	list-needs-build, build-info etc. symlinks) and use wanna-build
	itself with appropriate option instead. This removes the necessity
	to have the symlinks; you may still want them for typing
	convenience...

	* Removed hardcoded /usr/local paths.

	* Removed hardcoded /usr/local/var/debbuild paths from do-merge-*
	scripts. They extract the database dir now from
	/etc/wanna-build.conf.

1999-05-26  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: Introduced epochs in the database (they were
	ignored until now); now finally packages that have changed epoch
	go to state Needs-Build automatically. You're still allowed to
	omit the epoch in the usual commands (version comparison is fuzzy
	here) to still be able to pass file names as arguments. However,
	the input of --merge-packages and --merge-quinn must be exact can
	contain epochs.
	Caution #1: If the quinn-diff piped into wanna-build ignores epochs,
	you need to set $ignore_epochs in /etc/wanna-build.conf.
	Caution #2: When you install this wanna-build version (1.102) and
	have an existing database without epochs, run --merge-packages and
	--merge-quinn once with the --introduce-epochs option.
	Caution #3: Epochs are also added for currently building packages.
	buildd-mail might be confused by this if in the subjects of mails
	the epoch is still missing. You must add the epoch manually in
	this case.
	Caution #4: The automatic adding of epochs fails in one case: If
	someone has taken a version newer than what quinn-diff knows (e.g.
	a NMU planned) and that version was meant already with the epoch.
	In this case wanna-build will reset the state to Needs-Build and
	send you a new-version-while-building notice. Just re-take the
	package.

	* sbuild: Ignore epochs when fetching source files.

	* sbuild: If dpkg-source -x fails, remove the .tmp-nest dir if
	it's left over.

	* buildd-mail: Fix extraction of error message again (for replies
	to should-I-build mails): ignore empty parts between separators.

	* buildd-mail: Ignore epochs when constructing the name of a
	changes file or the name of a build directory.

	* wanna-build: If you take a package you have already taken, you
	don't get an error message anymore ("NOT OK; already taken by
	USER") but a notice instead that you already own the package and
	an ok.

1999-05-17  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* Fixed /tmp insecurity on wanna-build --manual-edit.

1999-05-04  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: After a build the disk space required for it is
	determined (final size of build dir before purging + size of
	generated .deb's) and printed in the package log. Additionally,
	the figure is stored in a new database avg-build-space, analogous
	to avg-build-time. However, the calculation of the "average" is
	different. Since disk space isn't expected to vary as much as
	times, the last figure seems more important than later ones.
	Therefore, max. 4 numbers are stored, and when calculating the
	average, the latest is weighted with factor 4, the next with 3 and
	so on.

	* avg-pkg-build-time: Can now dump the space db, too, with option
	--space (-s), or if called as avg-pkg-build-space. Output format
	for space is a bit different, but adding, dumping, sorting etc.
	works as usual.

1999-05-03  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: After unpacking a source, run "chmod -R g-s" on it. Some
	.orig.tar.gz files seems to be packaged with the setgid bit on,
	which causes the debian dir and its subdirs (e.g. debian/tmp) to
	be created setgid, too; and later dpkg-deb --build complains about
	bad permissions.

1999-04-26  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* rbuilder: Now can also parse mails signed with MIME/PGP.

1999-04-21  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: sbuild can now check if certain binaries have been used
	during a package build (to update the source dependencies). The
	check just looks for access time of the binary being later than
	the start of the build, so it could be fooled by parallel
	activities on the machine. So better check manually...
	There's a new config var %watches where one can list all the
	packages and binaries therein to watch for.

1999-03-12  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: New option --force-depends (-f) to override source
	dependencies of a package, in case they're wrong. The argument
	should be a line in the same format as used in
	/etc/source-dependencies.

1999-03-08  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: On --merge-packages, it can happen that multiple
	versions exist for one source package (if old binary packages
	from the same source haven't been removed from the archive yet).
	So skip a package in Packages not always if the same (source)
	packages has already been processed, but only if also the versions
	match. That way, all versions will be processed.

	* wanna-build: New option --pretend-avail. The packages given on
	the command line (versions required) are treated as if they're
	installed, and packages waiting for them are moved from Dep-Wait
	to Needs-Build (if other dependencies are available, too, of
	course).
	To make implementation of this easier, the Depends: list of a
	package in state Dep-Wait is now shortened each time a dependency
	is available.

1999-03-07  James Troup  <james@nocrew.org>

	* andrea, merger: new option --architecture (-a) to define the
	architecture and override the default as set by the output of dpkg
	--print-architecture.

1999-03-05  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* FetchFile: Bigger redesign of caching: Do not cache all file
	names anymore, but only directory names. Building a full cache
	takes some time, specially if for a FTP site. And most of the
	infos is never needed, specially if compiling only one package.
	Additionally, the full cache must be cleared rather often after
	"not found" results, because the mirror might have changed. This
	isn't necessary if caching dir names, because they're very
	unlikely to change. The new cache should be a major speedup for
	single-package builds and/or if several source packages must be
	fetched from a FTP site.

	* sbuild: No not remove build-progress if not writing it (no
	--batch).

	* sbuild: New option --purge (-p) to define build dir purge mode
	on command line.

1999-03-02  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Now implemented source dependency locking. This allows
	(securely) for multiple sbuild instances at the same time. For
	each job, a lock file with needed source dependencies is written.
	Before installing src deps, sbuild checks all those lock files if
	any of the packages needed by other instances would be touched in
	any way (removed, installed, updated). In that case, the second
	instance must wait until all conflicting jobs are finished.
	Special dependencies usually cause no conflict, except they are
	marked with a "global { yes }" subsection, which means they
	influence global system state. At most one package at a time may
	be built that has such a global dependency.

	* sbuild: Source dependencies that were newly installed for a
	build are now removed immediately after the build has finished,
	not anymore at the end of all builds. The old behaviour might be a
	bit more efficient, but is complex to handle with src-dep locks.

1999-03-01  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* rbuilder: New script for remote building on demand. Accompanying
	is a rbuilder-wrapper.

	* wanna-build: When merging Packages files, unknown (source)
	packages aren't ignored anymore. The ignoring was initially done
	to keep the databases smaller, but by now most packages are
	included there anyway. So it is now better to have a full
	database, which also makes the statistics a bit more correct.

1999-02-24  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: New option -n (--nolog): Do not write any log files
	(package log, build log), but only print to stdout. Also do not
	send any mails.

	* sbuild: Now a kind of source dependency locking information is
	maintained: In $conf::srcdep_lock_dir (usually
	/usr/local/var/debbuild/srcdep-lock) each instance of sbuild puts
	a file named after its pid and writes all needed packages into
	that file. Later instances of sbuild can use this information to
	check if a src-dep conflict exists. (To be implemented...)

1999-02-23  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Now URLs (http:// and ftp://) are allowed as command
	line parameters; the URL should point to a .dsc file. This feature
	can be used to build packages in arbitrary locations, not only
	those listed in @archive_locations. Also no searching is
	necessary, since the path is given.

1999-02-18  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Fix an old typo in some output text (chnages vs. changes)

1999-02-17  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: --give-back can now change to state Needs-Build
	from any state (not only Building) with --override.

	* wanna-build: --info and --forget (which take only package names
	without version) now strip anything following a '_' to avoid
	confusion.

	* sbuild: With -v don't mail the build log, because the same
	information is already mailed as the package log. And the
	additional stuff in the build log (e.g. removing packages) can be
	see interactively.

	* buildd: New config variable @take_from_dists: buildd will only
	take new packages from the distributions listed here. This can be
	used to let one buildd make this distrib, the other buildd the
	next and so on. If this variable isn't initialized in buildd.conf,
	it's set to (stable frozen unstable), i.e. all distributions.

1999-02-08  James Troup  <james@nocrew.org>

	* andrea is now architecture and distrubtion independent through
	the use of multiple new format files for source dependency
	mappings and manually added source dependencies.

1999-02-03  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: If installation of source dependencies (apt-get run)
	fails, try to reinstall removed packages and to remove newly
	installed packages. If apt-get failed because some package didn't
	configure, that package must be removed, otherwise all following
	apt-get runs will fail because they try to configure that package!

	* check-old-builds: Remove packages from reported-old-builds if
	they're not in state Building anymore.

	* wanna-build: "new version of ..." mails now include
	distribution.

	* wanna-build: With --info you can now also use --dist=all (or
	-da). Then infos are printed for all known distribution.

	* buildd-mail: Handle outdatedness for multiple distributions:
	  - The outdated-packages file now also records distributions in
	    which the package is outdated.
	  - In the check for outdatedness, it can happen that it's
	    outdated in none, some, or all distributions. The none and all
	    cases are the same as before, but in the some case, a modified
	    .changes needs to be sent, or an action cannot be applied
	    automatically.
	  - If the reply is no changes, we have to determine separately
	    to which distributions the packaged is targeted. This is done
	    by checking for state Building of the version in question.

	* buildd-mail: Fixed get_fail_msg for new output format of
	build-info.

	* buildd-mail: Before moving a package to the upload dir, check if
	it's really registered for building in all target distributions.
	If this is not the case, it's an indication of error. Either it
	should be registered, or some distributions should be deleted.

1999-02-01  James Troup  <james@nocrew.org>

	* andrea's merger's ability to strip automatically generated
	dependencies through the source-dependencies file has been fixed.

1999-02-01  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* avg-pkg-build-time: New option -f (--dbfile) to select the
	database to consult on the command line.

1999-01-25  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: When parsing dpkg --status output, ignore the help
	message appended at the end under some circumstances. This should
	remove the "parse error in dpkg --status: no Package: field" error
	messages.

1999-01-19  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* check-old-builds now checks all distributions, not only unstable.

1999-01-18  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: When opening the database, handle error EAGAIN:
	Wait 2 seconds and then try again for max. 30 times. Starting with
	the switch to GDBM, it often happened that after a lock was gone
	the database still couldn't be opened (file locking?).

1999-01-13  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: Added --quiet option to patch call to avoid some blurb
	in the sbuild log file.
	* do-merge-quinn: Mail the statistics file only if its size is
	greater than 0.
	* wanna-build-statistics: If wanna-build --list=all dies with
	error status, print the last message from it.

1999-01-08  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: Don't warn if a package goes Reupload-Wait ->
	Installed, this is rather normal.
	* wanna-build now uses GDBM databases (instead of DB hash from
	glibc), because the former database driver crashed randomly on
	sufficiently big databases :-(

1998-12-23  James Troup  <james@nocrew.org>

	* andrea now handles multi-line dependency information as found,
	for example, with the sgml-tools package.

1998-12-22  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* Several internal changes in wanna-build: make regexps faster by
	not using $`,$&,$'; replace ugly $main::var syntax for global
	variables by $var together with a use vars; made program name and
	option handling more general by replacing big switches by
	table-driven approach.

	* wanna-build now by default uses its own comparison function,
	written in Perl. This should be a great deal faster than forking
	dpkg --compare-versions all the time. But since this isn't 100%
	correct (dpkg is the only instance that really knows about version
	ordering), a new option --correct-compare can be used to force
	calling dpkg.

1998-12-16  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* New script wanna-build-statistics: Prints some nice statistics
	about how much packages are in which state, who put them into that
	state and so on.

	* do-merge-quinn now calls wanna-build-statistics after each merge
	and sends the results to a mailing list.

	* wanna-build now also allows --uploaded on packages in state
	Install-Wait without --override.

1998-12-15  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* Little correction to handling of Install-Wait state in
	wanna-build: If the corresponding package in another distribution
	changes state to Failed, Dep-Wait, or Needs-Build (on give-back),
	propagate this state change to the distrib where the Install-Wait
	is. This is necessary because in those cases, no upload will
	happen, and thus we could wait endless for an installation.

1998-12-11  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* On --merge-quinn, if a state is copied from another
	distribution, wanna-build must also set the Package: field,
	because the entry might not have existed before. This caused
	(rarely) "entry misses Package: field" errors.

1998-12-08  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* A SBUILD-REDO-DUMPED file is now also removed by buildd if
	sbuild exits with 0 status (as it does if the shutdown goes ok).

1998-12-07  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd now also catches SIGALRM around the call to
	get_changelog, which uses FetchFile. This is similar to the recent
	change to sbuild.

1998-12-04  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* There's a new config variable in buildd.conf:
	@weak_no_auto_build. Packages listed there are usually not taken
	and built, just as those in @no_auto_build. However, if there is
	really nothing to do (in no distribution) and the daemon would go
	into its idle loop otherwise, it will also take one package that
	is in @weak_no_auto_build (if one is available). Only one package
	is taken, because it is assumed that those packages need
	relatively much time. The consideration behind all this is that
	it's better to start an expensive build instead of doing nothing.

	* sbuild now also catches SIGALRM and calls its shutdown function
	if receiving it. In the last time, it happened sometimes that the
	Net::FTP module triggered some unhandled SIGALRMs after unexpected
	FTP timeouts. This caused the whole sbuild to crash, and *all*
	packages were dumped to REDO. Calling shutdown at least will dump
	only the unfinished ones.

1998-11-26  James Troup  <james@nocrew.org>

	* sbuild: sbuild can now use lftp instead of the perl FTP module
	to download source files; this was necessary for cookie-monster
	which is on a slow shared modem connection which consitently
	defeated the perl FTP module.  It's optional (see sbuild.conf) and
	off by default because only machines with slow/poor connections
	should use it as it's slower than using the perl FTP module due to
	the overhead of spawning multiple copies of lftp.

	sbuild also now handles the case of an aborted dpkg-source
	extraction by removing a .orig.tmp-nest directory if it's in the
	way.

1998-11-25  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd-reupload: New tool to reupload packages, which are
	already installed, for different distributions.

	* wanna-build: There are now two new states to solve the
	delayed-frozen-problem. Brief summary: If a (source) package is
	for (e.g.) frozen and unstable, it will be installed in unstable
	automatically, but in frozen later after acknowledgement by the
	release manager. This means that quinn-diff lists the new version
	for unstable earlier than for frozen, and that a build daemon
	might pick up the package from unstable. Since the upload cannot
	immediately go to frozen, too (the new version isn't accepted for
	this yet), sbuild modifies the .changes so the upload only goes to
	unstable (see sbuild change yesterday).

	But still the frozen version must be uploaded at some point. This
	is now handled by wanna-build (but not really completely; a
	perfect solution would have been rather hard to implement.) If
	quinn-diff lists a new version of some package, and the same
	version is Building or Uploaded for some other dist, the new state
	will be Install-Wait instead of Needs-Build. As soon as
	--merge-packages detects that that version has been installed,
	Install-Wait is turned into Reupload-Wait. If the packages was
	already installed in some dist at the time quinn-diff listed it,
	it goes to Reupload-Wait immediately. Whenever state Reupload-Wait
	is entered, the previous builder of the package receives a mail
	that a reupload for a different distribution is needed.
	buildd-mail will do this for some cases automatically, but
	sometimes manual work will be necessary.

	Why this solution isn't perfect: If another unstable version is
	installed before the previous version is needed for frozen, a
	recompilation is needed.

	Similar: If a version of a package is Failed or Dep-Wait in some
	other distrib and now is listed by quinn-diff for some dist, the
	Failed/Dep-Wait state is copied to the new dist.

	* wanna-build: You can abbreviate the argument to -d or --dist now
	as 's', 'f', or 'u'.

	* buildd-reply.el: new file with some Emacs functions that make it
	easier to reply to buildd mails.

1998-11-24  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild: If the changelog of a package wants to upload also for
	"lower" (stable < frozen < unstable) distributions than the
	distrib. set on the command line, then delete those distrib.s in
	the Distribution: field of the resulting .changes, because
	probably the package hasn't been accepted for stable or frozen,
	resp., yet. Instead, write a second, modified .changes to
	SAVED-CHANGES, which lists the omitted distribs in the
	Distribution: field.

1998-11-21  James Troup  <james@nocrew.org>

	* do-merge-quinn: handle temporary files securely and don't
	hardcode architecture.

1998-11-20  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild, source-dependencies: Special dependencies now can also
	have 'patch' subsections. These patches are applied when a source
	tree has been unpacked (and the package depends on the special
	dependency that has the patch subsection...) This is intended for
	cases where some packages need to be patched, but the patch isn't
	be appropriate for the main package. Examples are: ddd (cannot be
	compiled with -g, because then needs to much memory), gcc (needs
	-O in CFLAGS if compiled on a '060). For more infos on the patch
	subsections, see the comment in source-dependencies.

1998-11-19  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build: Implemented a global "maintenance" lock. Purpose:
	The --merge-{packages,quinn} commands work on each distribution
	separately, but the data still belong together. Concretely, it
	happened that a build daemon built some packages twice, because at
	the time of the first list-needs-build, they were Needs-Build for
	frozen, but not yet for unstable because the unstable quinn-diff
	wasn't merged in yet. The maintenance lock can be set or removed
	by the --create-maintenance-lock or --remove-maintenance-lock
	options, resp. If such a lock exists, every command except the two
	merge commands will wait for the lock to disappear.
	* do-merge-quinn, do-merge-packages: Use maintenance locks.
	* Whenever sbuild does auto-givebacks, it now logs them into a
	file SBUILD-GIVE-BACK, together with the current time. This list
	is used later by buildd: If a give-back hasn't been done at least
	$conf::delay_after_give_back minutes ago, the package will be
	ignored in list-needs-build output. buildd also deletes older
	entries from the file. This is to protect against loops, where
	buildd takes the same packages over and over, and sbuild only
	gives them back, for example because they're not on the mirror or
	the files are damaged.

1998-11-17  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild now tries to open /etc/source-dependencies-DISTRIB before
	/etc/source-dependencies. This is necessary because andrea will
	generate distrib-specific dependencies, so we need different files
	for each dist. The fallback without -DISTRIB appended is for
	compability.

1998-11-15  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@emilio.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* In source-dependencies, more than one dependency on the same
	package is now possible. (For example, one with >= relation and
	the other with <<.) Dependencies of this type can be produced by
	andrea.
	* sbuild can now detect cases where a package would have to be
	downgraded to fulfill a dependency. apt-get (how it is used
	currently) cannot handle downgrades, it always upgrades to the
	newest available version. Thus, in such cases a build is aborted.

1998-11-14  James Troup  <james@nocrew.org>

	* do-merge-packages now handles temporary files securely, is no
	longer architecture dependent and refuses to try and merge zero
	length Packages files.

1998-11-10  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* sbuild now doesn't pass packages that are already installed in a
	sufficient version to apt-get. This removes the side effect that
	packages that are source dependencies are always updated to the
	newest version, which is not always desired.
	* In wanna-build --list, the sorting order of sections has been
	changed. They're not anymore sorted alphabetically, but by some
	kind of importance. This has been done because the build daemons
	pick up packages in the order listed by wanna-build.

1998-11-09  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* buildd now also checks its config file (~/buildd.conf) for
	changes and rereads it if the modification time has changed. No
	extra SIGHUP is needed anymore.

1998-11-06  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* New script check-old-builds, which sends warning mails for
	packages being in state Building for more than 10 days.

1998-11-05  James Troup  <james@nocrew.org>

	* buildd-mail-wrapper now checks the pid in mailer-running files
	for validity (i.e. if the pid mentioned there really still exists).

1998-11-04  Roman Hodek  <rnhodek@faui22c.informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

	* wanna-build does not anymore send out mails for Failed->Failed
	state changes ("message appended").
	* sbuild: Fixed the changes-hack-for-frozen (didn't work at all).
