Bug Description

The page at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/freetype currently says that Trusty updates has FreeType 2.5.2-1ubuntu2.4, but the debug symbols for this are not present at http://ddebs.ubuntu.com/pool/main/f/freetype/libfreetype6-dbgsym_2.5.2-1ubuntu2.4_amd64.ddeb . I can see that they were built at https://launchpadlibrarian.net/198626832/buildlog_ubuntu-trusty-amd64.freetype_2.5.2-1ubuntu2.4_BUILDING.txt.gz and I believe it used to be available, but is now missing. Is it possible to restore these missing ddebs? Since the freetype package does not have a -dbg package, using these ddebs (along with installing the source package at /build/bbuild/) is the only good way to step into FreeType code while debugging.

Unfortunately not. This build happened in February 2015, which predates the work to include .ddebs in the launchpad librarian. If the ddebs from this build are not available at ddebs.ubuntu.com, they are lost; ddebs will only be available with the next build of the package.

This also affects php-json and some other packages in Trusty. I'm duping bug reports here for the general "there are missing ddebs on Trusty" issue. I note that affected users can rebuild the packages with debugging locally and then reproduce issues locally with the locally built packages as needed.

And also, to be clear, this issue affects packages built in a window within the Trusty timeframe only. Packages build more recently are not affected as far as I'm aware.

summary: - No ddeb for current Trusty updates.
