Proposed Migration

Known issues

In progress

Items that are being actively worked on. Please always mention the name / irc nick, who is working on that.

  • [rbalint] (needs review) retry-autopkgtest-regressions improvements (retry based on log regex, don't retry queued/running)


  • [rbalint] (needs review) autopkgtest-cloud: retry on some frequent intermittent failures review

  • [oSoMoN] rocksdb FTBFS (LP: #1884072), debdiff attached to bug report and ready for sponsoring (but low priority because the new version in experimental builds fine)

  • [oSoMoN] dh-python autopkgtest failures (LP: #1883297, fixed with a combination of cherry-picking an upstream commit that hasn't been released yet, and disabling Python2 tests (as was done in version 4.20191017ubuntu4 in focal). Needs sponsoring (debdiff attached to the bug report)

Things to pick from

These are issues that are not yet done, after somebody's rotation/shift ended. Or someone has spotted them but had no chance to work on it. If someone trying to pick them realized that it was resolved by time/someone-else please be so kind and remove the related entries.

  • Ongoing transitions
    • there are plenty of rust packages stuck in -proposed. Unfortunately the rust packages we sync from Debian are not generally in a consistent state allowing migration (to Debian testing or to the Ubuntu release). If someone takes a look at these, they will probably want to recommend removals of various leaf packages blocking transitions.
    • the r-base transition has now started
    • vcmi ftbfs, pinged xnox about it, boost 1.71 related
    • ubuntu-app-launcher, url-dispatcher, unity fallout
      • Who to approach to remove those? xnox will look into them
    • rust-* some test and many "unsatisfiable depends", one needs to check how this was meant to work ...
      • the rust packages only build if uploaded in a very precise order, which they were to debian but the debian import freeze messes this up for us
      • it's not clear that any of these packages help users of Ubuntu at all, so putting effort into these packages has a low ROI IMO (I == mwhudson)
    • there is a mess of go packages that needs unpicking. It's the sort of thing where we/Debian has updated one package to a given version, but some of the rdeps upstream are still pinning an older version.
      • this is blocking some potentially useful packages
    • autopkgtest for r-cran-* is in excuses quite often, this needs to be checked and probably custom test triggers (there also is a whopping 1.8k r-cran-* tests in atm)

    • perl micro update 5.30.3 - On Monday there was another upload of 5.30.3-4 and someone overzealously removed all perl tests. Cpaelzer/xnox/Laney re-triggered the tests the results ahve to be re-checked.
    • [cpaelzer] php-horde* needs removal and sync block to be processed by an Archive Admin.

  • golang-github-miekg-dns, which is blocking golang-github-hashicorp-memberlist: integer overflow on armhf:,

  • golang-golang-x-tools: and

  • golang-yaml.v2: upstream golang issue If we really need to get golang-yaml.v2 migrated before a fixed golang hits the archive, we can apply this workaround patch:

  • Not ready yet
    • haskell-* seems like mass-FTBFS
      • [cpaelzer] this is due to a change in haddock-interface, per coordination with Debian the following need to be resolved first. I've asked to be pinged once things are ready to re-trigger builds/tests on Ubuntu as needed. That will be visible on their ML as reply and I'll ping the current +1 duty people.

        • Because of the haddock-interface change, every single package needs a sourceful upload. This isn't relevant for Ubuntu.
        • All packages need to be updated to the version in the package-plan, which generally corresponds to Stackage LTS 15.13.
        • Both packages which do not need a version update and packages which do need to be upgraded also need patching because we do not automatically apply Hackage metadata updates which help
          • keep Stackage consistent.
        • All new packages pulled in as dependencies of the new versions
          • need to be packaged, and get processed through NEW. Some of these packages have been stuck in NEW for weeks, but most of them have not been packaged at all.
        • Build/test failures need to be addressed.
