archive: need a way to have -dbgsym packages
Open, HighPublic

Description

in ci we have debug symbol packages which helps a lot when looking for crashes. this is currently not available in amber-phone, would be great to get it there as well so we can debug user problems easier.

on https://repo.pureos.net/pureos-debug/dists/ there's dbgsym packages for amber, amber-phone-staging and amber-proposed-upates so if the versions in amber-phone / amber-updates are the same we can work around things by using these.

dbgsym packages for amber-phone-staging do work now via

deb https://repo.pureos.net/pureos-debug amber-phone-staging-debug main

that is great! If we could enable this for amber-phone as well that would be cool since then

  • we can reenable our debug metapackage
  • it's safer for users to have this enabled

a an issue that remains is that we don't have debug packages for regular pureos-amber. This can often be helped by using the ones from Debian but not always when e.g. pureos lacks a bit behind. This makes it unsafe to enable by default.
