mak added a comment to T725: Emacs 26 error installation.

emacs25 seems to only exist as a transitional binary package to emacs-gtk in PureOS:

emacs25    | 25.2+1-6+b2   | landing    | arm64
emacs25    | 25.2+1-6+b3   | landing    | amd64
emacs25    | 1:26.1+1-3.2  | green      | all
emacs25    | 1:26.1+1-3.2  | landing    | all
emacs25    | 1:26.1+1-3.2  | purple     | all

There appears to be some cruft in landing, but that has a lower version number so shouldn't be easily installable.
Are you sure this is still an issue?

I can reproduce this here. The timezone shouldn't actually cause any problems here, yet the Release file was apparently signed and piblished with a timestamp in the future to your system. Very strange. There is no unusual behavior going on in the archive as far as I can see.

librem5-devkit-tools_0.0.2_source.changes: misses mandatory field Binary
How was this source package built exactly? The Binary field needs to be present in .changes file in order to be processed.

mak closed T744: Please allow source only uploads again as "Invalid".

This is not a bug in the archive. Source-only uploads are allowed, but the .changes file of this package apparently misses the mandatory Binary field and is therefore rejected. Not sure what caused this though, there might be an issue in the packages' build process somewhere.
See https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-controlfields.html#s-f-binary for more info on the missing field.

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

Attempting a sync, seeing it fail and then needing to do a manual rebuild is not efficient and can not be reliably automated. Attempting a sync which works but has a decent chance of introducing breakage which can be avoided by a rebuild is not wise.
By always rebuilding packages synced from foreign suites we get a 100% automatable process that saves human work and avoids the introduction of errors due to binaries being built in the wrong environment, even if they are rare.

mak added a comment to T716: Don't install Kodi by default.

@jeremiah.foster The data on this URL lists which packages are in certain seeds and why. Some might be explicitly requested, while others are implicitly added via dependencies of packages that were not explicitly requested to be in the default set.
A "standard" PureOS installation consists of the "minimal", "standard" and a desktop seed (e.g. "gnome"), while the desktop seed is itself comprised of a common platform seed ("desktop-common") combined with a desktop specific one ("gnome" or "plasma").
So, if you want to know what is explicitly added to the GNOME flavor of PureOS, https://master.pureos.net/raw/germinate/pureos.green/gnome.seedtext could be interesting, while tables like https://master.pureos.net/raw/germinate/pureos.green/gnome also contain implicitly added stuff and sizes.

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

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).

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.

@jeremiah.foster Kodi was added on request of your predecessor because the initial PureOS had it and PureOS was supposed to be "complete" (including a mediacenter).

@jeremiah.foster Currently I manually trigger builds by running a command on the archive server. I could likely give you access to that with permission of the sysadmins. Since the automated builds might be very slow though and the system will override the previous image in case there is more than one image build on the same day, I think that you might be happier with a manual image build.

@jeremiah.foster There isn't a formal testing process. I check whether the system boots, installs and runs through the initial setup and the initial experience looks okay. Others do that as well on different hardware, and if nobody reports any major issues, the image is good to go.
If there was a particular change on the installer or initial setup that might have broken something, I will look at that change in more detail to see if really everything works as expected.
But that's about it, nothing fancy (or even structured) is currently happening.

Ehhh... What?
The latest release on https://downloads.pureos.net/ is the current one, and once it has been tested the released one (which should happen very quickly, ideally). If a release is considered broken, it is either removed or a more recent one is built.
Each and every image build is accompanied by a .packages files which lists the contained packages and their versions in details. See https://downloads.pureos.net/live/gnome/2019-02-10/pureos-8.0-gnome-live_20190210-amd64.packages for example.
There are also detailed file listings of stuff included in the installation images, as well as a build log and checksums (the former of which also contains all information on package versions).

mak added a comment to T620: clamav: Needlesly forked (package does not promote nonfree software).

Originally these choices were made because we were asked to remove the references on the FSF mailinglist to get PureOS endorsed. They also asked us to remove the "non-free" component reference from the APT manual pages.
However, nobody seems to insist on that anymore, and your reasoning makes sense to me, so I will gladly resynchronize this package with Debian.

mak added a comment to T375: Please make a dev/pureos/changes nofications Matrix/Riot room.

It's on my todo list and will likely be added after the current refactoring is over. The tricky thing here is that Laniakea delegates most archive actions to dak, and I would need to hook into dak to make this feature work properly (which means without email parsing) and integrate it with the generic Laniakea messaging.
This feature will also require our sysadmins to allow bots in some way on our Matrix instance (at the moment, I have no way to actually register a Matrix bot).

@sean.obrien While that "Flatkill" (what a dumb name...) makes excellently valid points, there's nothing that is a fundamental flaw in Flatpak's design that won't be resolved with better maintenance and more development time. However, that's something that still needs to happen, and when creating something new, you need to start somewhere ;-)
But anyway, it's better to have this discussion at a different place, to not make the discussion on this (syncing) issue overly hard to follow.

@guido

For our CI we can (and will auto upload to purple/laboratory for some stuff but I'm really talking about things we want from other Debian suites not necessarily maintained by us.

You have me confused now. I thought the whole transitioning between landing -> and green is there to detect these inconsistencies?

mak added a comment to T594: Decide how to handle phone-specific syncs from Debian unstable to PureOS.

The problem here is that we sync binaries and are based on Debian testing. We can't just selectively sync some stuff from unstable, because unstable packages might be built against other things that are only available in unstable (e.g. newer versions of libraries with soname bump). So doing that properly would always be a manual action.
I could change the code and implement something that allows syncing some packages only by source, but that will take a bit of time and might likewise cause trouble with packages synced from testing that would have to be rebuilt against the source-sync from unstable. That's why I did not implement this feature initially, in principle, to avoid having scenarios where the automation breaks things or causes unexpected sideeffects.

mak added a comment to T594: Decide how to handle phone-specific syncs from Debian unstable to PureOS.

We don't automatically sync stuff with Debian unstable, and if I do a one-time sync the package will be out of date again rather soon.
So, maybe just uploading the latest version of libhandy to PureOS directly is a better option for you? It already is in the laboratory/purple suites afterall.

mak closed T586: Second disk encryption password prompt on boot as "Resolved".

mak added a comment to T587: Second disk encryption passphrase required for secondary encrypted drive/folder.

This looks like expected behavior to me: The first prompt is for the disk password, while the second one is for root permission to be actually able to mount the device.
However, there might still be an issue here, because apparently the disk is mounted twice, and also a local user should be able to mount disks directly without root permission, so the second authentication request might not be needed (it could be though that the system policy on what the user can do is different for encrypted disks compared to regular volumes).

mak added a comment to T585: GNOME Extensions install allowed.

@james.rufer GNOME Software will fetch an extension list when run under GNOME Shell. So, you'll need to run it in a GNOME Shell session and the GNOME site has to be reachable. Try refreshing the software index (refresh button in GNOME Software) in case information is missing.

mak added a comment to T585: GNOME Extensions install allowed.

I am not sure I understand the problem - what is the issue here? That extensions can be downloaded from GNOME?
Since we trust GNOME already, I don't think it makes sense to disallow that in GNOME software, especially because doing so means people will have trouble installing GNOME extensions.

@jsbret This very much sounds like a different issue that was solved a while ago. Check your /etc/default/grub for GRUB_ENABLE_CRYPTODISK, that option and associated settings should not be enabled (otherwise GRUB tries to decrypt /, which it shouldn't attempt to).

Hey Theo, can you maybe add a storage engine to our Phab instance?
Just having flatfile storage should actually be sufficient. I can not add this myself because I think I lack permission on the server itself (and that is needed to change this setting).

@Chris, can you look into this and see if it indeed has anything to do with purism-power-optimisations? (that's the only thing that would make sense to me, but it could also be a kernel issue in general. Encryption being the culprit seems highly unlikely to me though).

mak closed T571: Password Safe showing Proprietary in GNOME Software as "Invalid".

Your PureOS is tainted. The only versions of gnome-software that we include in PureOS are:

gnome-software | 3.28.0-1pureos1 | green      | source, amd64, arm64
gnome-software | 3.28.0-1pureos1 | landing    | source, amd64, arm64
gnome-software | 3.28.0-1pureos1 | purple     | source, amd64, arm64

The PureOS specific change includes exactly a difference to recognized things from the pureos-main archive as free.
Please reinstall your system to ensure that you actually only have stuff we ship in PureOS, and make sure that no non-PureOS sources exist in your sources.list.
The output of apt list suggests a manual installation of a foreign gnome-software package (highly likely from Debian), but it could also be that it was updated once and the source it came from has been removed meanwhile (if you know that you manually updated gnome-software that is fine, in this case you would need to reset the package and can maybe avoid a reinstallation).
