[massfile] remove from u-d-t?

Bug #145598 reported by Daniel Holbach on 2007-09-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubuntu-dev-tools (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-dev-tools

'list' currently only contains the source package.

massfile should expect a CSV file and parse that instead. Replacement in the 'text:' part of the 'instructions' file should happen by not only replacing $pack, but also $1, $2, $3, $4, and so on according to the amount of values in the 'list' line.

Daniel, could you possibly attach an example CSV file to work on this bug?

Maybe we should remove massfile from the package. With Harvest we have a good way of tracking what needs work without using the bug tracker - what do you think? I haven't used the tool for ages.

Yeah, the tool isn't particularly user-friendly, which means it needs lots of work or removal.

Should we remove it and see if anyone notices?

  [ Stefano Rivera ]
  * mk-sbuild: Correct typo in variable name. Thanks Laurent Declercq.
    (Closes: #645917)
  * Remove massfile. Neglected and unused (LP: #145598)
  * syncpackage, requestsync: Sync from testing for LTSs (LP: #876400)
  * syncpackage:
    - Ignore CURRENT blacklisting: it's buggy, and we don't have a good use
      for it.
    - Always display blacklist comments, if they exist.
    - Display timestamps for DSD blacklist comments.
    - Add --fakesync option, relegating --no-lp to really crazy corner cases.
  * sponsor-patch: Compare new sync version to the current Ubuntu version,
    rather than itself (LP: #878499)
  * sponsor-patch.1: Mention syncs (LP: #882085)

  [ Benjamin Drung ]
  * syncpackage: Catch user abort.

  [ Scott Moser ]
  * mk-sbuild: better support apt http proxy (LP: #881654)
