Bug Description

Merge e2fsprogs from Debian 1.43.1-1

Dave Chiluk (chiluk) wrote :

  * Merge from Debian unstable. (LP: #1592862) Remaining changes:
    - Block pkg-create-dbgsym from operating on this package.
       Build without dietlibc-dev, which is in universe
       Use the autotools-dev dh addon to update config.guess/config.sub for
       new ports.
    - debian/control:
        Regenerate with ./debian/rules debian/control

You may want to recheck the merge, or at least the remaining changes, since Debian e2fsprogs 1.43.1 now:

a) Uses dh_update_autotools_config to update config.guess / config.guess
b) No longer uses dietlibc
c) Generates dbgsym packages if the underlying package infrastructure supports them

At the very least the changes to remove dietlibc are definitely no longer needed for Ubuntu, and if Ubuntu now supports the Debian methods for generating dbgsym and updating config.{guess,sub} files, it may be possible for Ubuntu remove (a) and (c) as well.

BTW, note that if you run "make -f debian/rules mrproper ; make -f debian/rules debian-files" the debian/rules file will automatically reprobe the underlying build infrastructure and update various debian files automatically to automate rebuilding e2fsprogs on legacy distributions. For example, this should allow e2fsprogs to be rebuilt on Debian Stable and (probably, although I haven't tested it) Ubuntu LTS distributions.

Thanks Tytso,

You are right about b). I'm adding cjwatson to this bug as he hopefully knows a bit more of the background for those other changes.

Dave Chiluk (chiluk) wrote :

I'm also including a log of Debian 1.43.1-1 built on amd64. Although I have a feeling that a) was added for support on more "interesting" arches.

Colin Watson (cjwatson) wrote :

Ted's comments sound reasonable. I'd suggest you just go ahead and sync, dropping our delta, and in the unlikely event that we need to put something back for some exotic architecture then we can do so.
