Misc

  • various small fixes to ubumirror, moved the Vcs around
  • reviewed ubuntu-dev-scripts edit-patch
  • filed an old expense
  • prepared a cubic meter of boxes to ship around with ARM hardware Smile :-)

  • chased adding valgrind to Packages-arch-specific for a good while, in Debian, and then in Ubuntu; documented the current process on wiki.u.c/Packages-arch-specific
  • poked FTBFSes further, requested cdebconf sync to fix cdeconf-terminal build-deps; looked into first user-mode-linux FTBFSes (empty linux-source package); requested xprint sync to fix some FTBFS
  • requested more versatile kernel packages tweaks to support installer properly: linux-versatile meta and udebs; thanks to apw for taking care of these!
  • uploded qemu-kvm pselect() support patch as well as the GCC atomic builtins patch since it passed basic testing
  • uploaded qemu-kvm with support with "credentials yes" for qemu-arm-static binfmt: allows running suid apps such as sudo under qemu-arm chroots; thanks cjwatson for merging my binfmt-support changes
  • upstreamed all current Debian/Ubuntu valgrind patches; all code changes merged upstream now \o/
  • chased valgrind doc build issue; got a workaround now, need to reupload a valgrind snapshot with docs, but waiting for some ARM fixes to land
  • upstreamed GCC atomic builtins qemu patch (+ volatile spinlock_t)
  • triaged some valgrind Ubuntu bugs
