Fwd: Dropping Release and Release.gpg support from APT

Do we have any repositories that do not have InRelease files for eoan+?

See below for details, sorry about the forwarding, but it's a bit messy
with cross-posting to ubuntu-devel.

Also, of course 19.10, not 18.10, upstream me is silly.

we currently have code dealing with falling back from InRelease
to Release{,.gpg} and it's all a bit much IMO. Now that buster
has been released with an InRelease file, the time has IMO come for
us to drop support for the old stuff from APT!

Timeline suggestion
now add a warning to apt 1.9.x for repositories w/o InRelease, but Release{,.gpg}
Aug/Sep turn the warning into an error, overridable with an option (?)
Q1 2020 remove the code

My idea being that we give this a cycle in the Ubuntu 18.10 stable
release before we drop it, so people are ready for it.

Why remove it?
* It's annoying UX to have repositories with Release files and the "Ign" lines
* Handling the fallback from InRelease to Release{,.gpg} involves some abstractions
and logic and the less logic we have in security-relevant file fetching, the better

Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) reaches End of Life on July 18 2019

Ubuntu announced its 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) release almost 9 months
ago, on October 18, 2018. As a non-LTS release, 18.10 has a 9-month
support cycle and, as such, the support period is now nearing its
end and Ubuntu 18.10 will reach end of life on Thursday, July 18th.

At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include
information or updated packages for Ubuntu 18.10.

The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 18.10 is via Ubuntu 19.04.
Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at:

Ubuntu 19.04 continues to be actively supported with security updates
and select high-impact bug fixes. Announcements of security updates
for Ubuntu releases are sent to the ubuntu-security-announce mailing
list, information about which may be found at:

Since its launch in October 2004 Ubuntu has become one of the most
highly regarded Linux distributions with millions of users in homes,
schools, businesses and governments around the world. Ubuntu is Open
Source software, costs nothing to download, and users are free to
customise or alter their software in order to meet their needs.

SRU looking for a reviewer


Hello everyone,

A few month ago, I submitted a SRU for bionic [1] and Robie Basak was
kind enough to review it. However, he deemed the review too time
consuming to complete and left it to someone else. Since then, no other
developer reviewed this SRU. May I then ask one of you for a review?

I hope to either move this SRU forward and have fixed Shibboleth
packages in bionic, or have it clearly rejected and not worry about it
lingering any more.

Thanks Simon for the work and the summary,

> - Asked for clarification on
I already mentioned that previously on the list but that bug has a SRU
template and a proper debdiff attached, you asked a question about
another bugs batched in the same SRU proposal but unsubscribing sponsors
seems a bit of a strong action.

I think it's fair to say that once those items are out of the sponsoring
queue there is a lot less chance that some sponsors will look at it
again which means we are discarding useful contributions on the basis of
trivial questions...

Could we try to figure out a process to deal with those cases better?
What about setting as "incomplete" there and having the report put those
in another section (if the concern is to have them out of the main
list). Or maybe some tag that allows to easily list such items back later

Ubuntu Developer Office Hours Report for 07/02/19


Smaller time spent today, but some progress was made nonetheless:

- Followed up on
- it would be good to get this merged before the post-Buster rush of
packages and transitions.
- Asked for clarification on
- Keeping but it really needs action from Server.
- is a glibc patch that's a bit over my head,
someone from Foundations should look.
- Asked for clarification on
- Unsubscribed sponsors on since teward already

Want to get involved with Ubuntu Developer Office Hours? Check the
calendar[1] to see when others are signed up. If you're an Ubuntu
Developer and want to sign up, let me know and I'll add you to the calendar.
