Subject: buildd.emdebian.org: [grip] - improve synchronisation between Grip testing and Debian testing
Date: Tue, 23 Dec 2008 18:18:05 +0000
Package: buildd.emdebian.org
Severity: normal

Further improvements to the emdebian-grip scripts are needed to
process and synchronise the filter and grip repositories for unstable
and now for testing. (Releasing stable is merely a case of copying
testing into stable - it needs to be done immediately that Lenny is
released because packages will instantly be migrating from Debian
unstable into Debian testing (Squeeze) and therefore into the filter
repository too.) I'm OK handling this one but any help will be
appreciated - you need SSH access to the www.emdebian.org server (as
well as Emdebian SVN) to really be able to do much for this.

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Slowly making improvements with this one - a few final checks before
emdebian-tools 1.4.14 can be released with the latest code.

Problem remains that the update is taking a long time. em_autogrip
probably needs to be rewritten in perl simply to get an acceptable
performance.

It would also help if anyone has an easier way to quickly identify
differences between repositories.

One repository is a filtered Debian mirror - it only contains the
packages that Grip specifies.

One repository is the Grip version - binary packages have an 'em1'
version suffix and the packages themselves are smaller but the
repository details themselves are unchanged. Source packages are
unchanged.

It should be easier to compare one with the other and quickly generate
a list of packages that need to migrate into testing and packages that
have changed in unstable.

If anyone fancies helping with some perl to make that process both
reliable and v.fast, please send it to the bug report. Thanks.

OK, the rewrite of em_autogrip from shell into perl is done (1.4.15) and
seems to be working OK, closing the tracking bug.
