Bug Description

1. Availability - already packaged & builds in Ubuntu universe since Maverick & Debian experimental

2. Rationale - libpeas is a library to add C, Python, and JS extensibility to Gnome 3 apps. As explained at http://log.istique.net/2010/announcing-libpeas some Gnome 2 apps had an earlier form of this functionality but it was not implemented as a library and so could not be easily added to other apps.

As such, it is already a dependency of gedit, eog, and totem, with more likely.

3. Security - Since this is now part of Gnome, we can expect security updates as needed from Gnome. There are no known security bugs:

4. QA - As of today, there are 0 bugs in Ubuntu or Debian for this package.

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?repeatmerged=no&src=libpeas

Gnome has one unconfirmed, critical bug for this, filed about 11 days ago:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=649396

5. UI - This library is translatable using intltool

6. Dependencies: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-desktop/libpeas/ubuntu/view/head:/debian/control
All dependencies are already in main except for libseed, see bug 782972

7. Standards compliant 3.9.1

8. Maintenance - We are currently in sync with Debian

Packaging is simple enough. Two blockers though:

1) Ideally test suite would be enabled by the following addition to debian/rules:
DEB_MAKE_CHECK_TARGET = check
But then a test fails. Tests should be able to run cleanly.

2) There's no symbols file for libpeas-1.0-0

(I've added a symbols file and am working on the test suite problem.)

Hrm, not sure what to do about the test suite failure. I uploaded the symbols change though.

The test is failing because of -Bsymbolic-functions. I'm trying to figure out why.

Michael Terry (mterry) wrote :

I just uploaded a version that runs the test suite and disables -Bsymbolic-functions (only for the test directory). I've sent that along to Debian too.

With this change, I'll approve. Note that seed hasn't been approved yet though.
