2017-05-10 16:24:27 Jeremy Bicha description Impact ------ As announced, the GNOME3 PPAs for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS are no longer being maintained as of April 2017. Therefore, the Ubuntu GNOME project would like to stop receiving bugs from packages installed from those PPAs for that version, or for 14.04 LTS which is no longer supported by Ubuntu GNOME. This is being done by dropping the special handling of the GNOME3 PPAs by apport and treat it as unsupported like any other PPA. See https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/ubuntu/gnome3 Test Case --------- sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3 sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade Ubuntu 14.04: ubuntu-bug gnome-system-monitor Ubuntu 16.04: ubuntu-bug nautilus What should happen: After several moments, you should see a popup with This is not an official Ubuntu package. Please remove any third party package and try again. Clean up: sudo apt install ppa-purge sudo ppa-purge ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3 Regression Potential -------------------- Well, people will be unable to report bugs with PPA packages like they used to. Hopefully, they'll be able to figure out why. Other Info ---------- This change is not being made in currently supported releases. It would be nice if the ubuntu-gnome script in the future included the extra strings so that a more specific message could be presented on end of life for the GNOME3 PPAs, suggesting that they use ppa-purge.

Therefore, the Ubuntu GNOME project would like to stop receiving bugs from packages installed from those PPAs for that version, or for 14.04 LTS which is no longer supported by Ubuntu GNOME.

Please run ppa-purge ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3 Clean up: sudo apt install ppa-purge sudo ppa-purge ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3 Other Info ---------- Ubuntu GNOME has always installed ppa-purge by default. Regression Potential -------------------- People will be unable to report bugs with PPA packages like they used to but they'll be told why. The message unfortunately likely won't be translated right away, but since it will land in the development release, it should eventually be translated for future Ubuntu releases.
