jonas.smedegaard added a comment to T724: PureOS is too stable when auto-migrating only from Debian testing.

@mak you wrote this in a related discussion (in a non-public chat where you gave permission to quote in public):

Laniakea can sync a specific list of packages from any suite into landing, however this is definitely not a smart idea on PureOS as it currently is. We did that mistake on Tanglu in the past. Since PureOS doesn't rebuild all packages synced from Debian, there might be subtle incompatibilities, or synced packages would just flat out not work due to dependency issues. Or the synced experimental packages would break other stuff if not rebuilt against them, GLib is a primary candidate here (but we also had DBus interface incompatibilities occasionally).
So, if we sync stuff from random suites, I would also opt for rebuilding all Debian packages for PureOS, which in turn would require us to do transitions like Debian does (which would mean people would have to monitor and do those).

Btw, gksu will not work at all on Wayland as wayland does not allow GUI apps to be run as root without some reconfiguration (which intentionally isn't done), and on Xorg I guess it's just broken because nobody looks at its code anymore.
So, I think we should just close this bug.

mak added a comment to T719: gksu does not work.

@jonas.smedegaard Apparently gksu wasn't auto-removed from PureOS because sbackup had a dependency on it. That package itself is cruft though, so I just dropped both from the archive.
Interestingly, sbackup was not considered for autoremoval in PureOS, I will have to take a closer look at why that happened later (my guess is that it has something to do with the package being NMU'ed and building only arch:all binary packages).

Since you insist, @jeremiah.foster, on expanding/redefining the scope of this issue to be about switching *GENERALLY*, I cannot help and therefore unsubscribe from participation here:

Can you paste a copy of you grub.cfg file? Either here or in a pastebin somewhere? That might help debugging the issue. You grub.cfg file likely won't have any secret info, just things like the command line to boot your system as well as the UUID of your disks.

guido added a comment to T366: PureOS is too stable including packages only from Debian testing.

From the phone perspective we we'd like to pull a rather fixed set of packages from e.g. Debian experimental during the freeze automatically (assuming Debian's GNOME team ends up putting the packages there) but after all it's more of an example of a general pattern: grab packages a, b, c from repository x (ideally including required dependencies not present in the target distribution).

jonas.smedegaard added a comment to T366: PureOS is too stable including packages only from Debian testing.

@jeremiah.foster are you asking to *generally* switch from tracking testing to track unstable (or experimental), or are you - like this issue was initially intended to be about - asking about singling out packages to be tracked exceptionally from unstable (or experimental), where packages otherwise generally continue to track testing?

Wed, Mar 6, 11:14 PM
mak added a comment to T366: PureOS is too stable including packages only from Debian testing.

Syncing from unstable is just flipping a switch. But we need to know if we *want* to do that. Unstable won't get many package changes during the freeze period either.
Autosyncing with experimental is a terrible idea, because experimental packages may just get deleted without ever reaching unstable. There is also a lot of broken stuff in there which we really don't want in PureOS (experimental is really just a playground with zero QA happening).
So, stuff from experimental should only ever be synced manually and if there is a good reason for doing so.
