Bug Description

please update to pypy 5 for xenial. It's now migrated to testing in Debian; it is in main in Ubuntu, however only used as a build dependency, never directly referenced, and will fall back to universe after the archive reorg.

There are also a few packages where building with pypy (<< 5) is not supported anymore: lxml 3.6.x

We will be able to fix unexpected build failures before the release, a test rebuild is still pending.

Changes since then:

pypy (5.0.1+dfsg-4) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Disable building with pypy on ppc64, again. It has a JIT, but pypy itself
    is just too buggy on big-endian, to manage a translation.
  * hg-updates: fix wait() on big endian (which should resolve the above

pypy (5.0.1+dfsg-3) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Re-enable pypy builds on ppc64.
  * ARM JIT backend: Only execute NEON instructions on CPUs with NEON support.
  * hg-updates: Apply patches staged in upstream's release branch.

pypy (5.0.1+dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Drop libunwind build-dep, not used any more, in PyPy 5.0.
  * Port the recent vmprof changes to kFreeBSD.
  * Make pypy-lib an architecture-dependant package, so that we remain
    installable on buildds, after Architecture: all build has been installed.
  * Temporarily build with python2.7 on ppc64, to re-bootstrap.

pypy (5.0.1+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream patch release.
  * Recognise armv8l architecture, so we can build in an armhf chroot on
  * Build with pypy on architectures with a JITted PyPy. This is now necessary
    on armhf, as we otherwise can't build a jitted pypy in a 3GB address
    space (32bit kernel userspace).

pypy (5.0+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release.
  * Refresh patches.
  * Drop soabi patch, superseded upstream.
  * Bump copyright years.
  * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.7, no changes needed.
  * Switch both Vcs fields to the same https URL.
  * Patch: sandbox-unlink allow the sandbox REPL to start, by supporting
    unlink() (and rejecting it).

Release team members: I think this is probably a good idea. And upstream PyPy almost certainly does. They much prefer to support recent releases.

I'm hesitant about approving an FFe for my own package, though.

Debian testing migration does not mean much in terms of whether this causes any new FTBFS. There are only some 20 reverse build/binary dependencies, can you please do a test build of them against pypy 5? Approved if that does not cause any regression or you can upload fixed rdepends at the same time.

Note that http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/proposed-migration/update_excuses.html#pypy at least makes pyzmq uninstallable; this is part of the "20 reverse build deps" which need to be rebuilt against pypy5 (presumably)

Stefano did a local test rebuild, and here is another one with the just built pypy:

(will remove these packages once the package migrates)
