+1 maintenance report

This week was my +1 maintenance shift, and I was shadowed by Athos (who
will send a separate report).

Here's what I did.

* Retriggers

I did a lot of retriggers over the week, including one for libreoffice
that was repeated (sorry). The list below contains all of the
retriggers that passed, and a few of the failures (I did not include all

* Rebuilds & syncs

I did a few rebuilds and syncs.

Package: rustc 1.51.0+dfsg1+llvm-1~exp3ubuntu1 riscv64

Package: mesa 21.1.4-1 riscv64

Package: kldap 21.04.3-0ubuntu1 riscv64 (this will likely unblock openldap).
Update: it didn't unblock openldap.

Package: akonadi-calendar 4:21.04.3-0ubuntu1 riscv64

Package: golang-github-hillu-go-yara sync'ed from experimental (trying
to unblock yara)

* Investigation

I spent a lot of time investigating several failures and interesting
cases. Here are my notes.

Package: openldap

*** The package and its dependencies are sorted out and everything is
just waiting for gnome-shell et al to become installable.

*** I've been talking to the Desktop team and I know they're on it.

*** Unfortunately the week has finished and openldap is still stuck.
This is my top priority right now so I'll keep working on it next

Package: hg-git

*** Failing on i386.

*** mercurial-git:i386 uninstallable. Not sure why it's trying to
install the arch-dependent version of it.

*** MP filed:

*** MP accepted. Package migrated.

Package: sbcl

*** Failing on arm64 (SEGV)

*** See cl-xmls.

Package: pcs

*** Failing due to how corosync names nodes.

*** MP filed:

*** MP accepted. Package uploaded and migrated.

Package: crmsh

*** Likewise.

*** MP filed:

*** MP accepted. Package uploaded and migrated.

Package: cl-xmls

*** Started investigating, but then stumbled upon

*** I'd like to continue the investigative work, but Canonistack is not

*** I finally got access to another armhf machine I can use, but I don't
have more time to investigate this.

Package: golang-github-uber-go-atomic

*** Package is FTBFS due to a testsuite problem when building with
Golang 1.16.

*** Upstream has a fix for it, which is included in the latest release
(not packaged yet).

*** I took the opportunity to update the package on Debian, which will
automatically bring the fix to Ubuntu.

*** This will ultimately unblock golang-testify, which has been stuck
for 60 days.

*** The update fixed the problem for most architectures, but armhf is
now failing with another error. PR filed:

*** I found a workaround, testing now.

*** The workaround doesn't work. I reported a bug at
and tagged it as =update-excuse=.

*** Upstream came up with a fix. I've backported it to the Debian
package and uploaded it. It should be sync'ed to Ubuntu in the
following hours, and then the package should finally unblock the
migration of golang-testify.

Package: picolibc

*** A strange problem is going on with picolibc, specifically the
aarch64 cross library that is generated.

*** The problem doesn't manifest on Debian.

*** I can make the aarch64 compilation "pass" when I provide the
=-nostdlib= flag to GCC.

*** Pinged doko about it. I'll check if he has any ideas before I dive
deep into the problem.

*** I don't have more time to investigate, so I'm leaving the problem as-is.

Package: gnome-shell

*** This upload is important because it will unblock a lot of openldap

*** The s390x build is missing. Upon investigation, I noticed that gtk4
hadn't been built for s390x on hirsute, and we still don't have the
s390x binaries on impish. I am checking whether it's possible to
rebuild the package.

*** Rebuilding gtk4 still yields the same error on s390x.

*** As I mentioned above, the Desktop team is on this one, so I'm not
spending more time on it.

Package: gstreamer & libcamera

*** libcamera is FTBFSing because gstreamer is using a deprecated


*** MP filed:

*** Upon seb128's request I forwarded the patch to Debian.

*** Heather Ellsworth found that the libcamera built using this new
gstreamer1.0 segfaults. This will require more invetigative work.
Unfortunately I don't have more time to dedicate to this.

* Problems

Here are the problems I faced while working this week.

** I'm unable to reserve any machine on Canonistack. Filed an RT ticket

*** Still nothing.
