I ACKed bug 257880, but still there are some open questions:
 - This change was dropped, isn't it necessary any more? If so, why?
  * debian/rules: undef _FORTIFY_SOURCE so that it doesn't fail about ignored
    chdir() return value.
 - as far as I can tell this patch did not get upstream yet, why can it be dropped?
  * debian/patches: Add fix_includes_and_printf_usage.dpatch
    - #include <limits.h> in {main,ignore_pool}.c to get PATH_MAX and INT_MAX
    - local.c: Fix insecure printf usage

+ to patches/00.list.

I tweaked your patch a bit before uploading. Adding a patch system
to a package from Debian for a single patch is generally frowned upon,
so I backed that out and just applied the patch in-line.

Please don't undefine FORTIFY_SOURCE. Instead, use this patch....

Manny Vindiola (serialorder) wrote :


I only reintroduced the patch system that was being used in the previous version but in the future I should just apply directly?


James Westby (james-w) wrote :

Hi Manny,

If there is just a single patch against the Debian source then
adding a patch system that Debian doesn't have (even if it
was used in the previous Ubuntu version) is overkill.

If however you merge a package where a previous uploader added
a patch system then you may as well keep it.

Yours was a bit of a corner case, and some will disagree with me, but
I took the opportunity to remove the patch system while sponsoring.
You didn't do anything wrong, and the package would have worked
