  • There was a request on irc for someone to retry riscv64 builds in Oracular that failed without logs. I found 449 builds, mostly riscv64, but also a handful on other architectures, and gave them all back. I also reported this to Launchpad Team.

Did a relatively short and uneventful session. Not a whole lot of uploads.

Processed sync requests, after verifying that the Ubuntu delta can actually be dropped:

Other sponsored uploads:

  • community member asked to retry the builds for chr/0.1.78-1, and the new attempt worked
  • LP: #2060976: DEP8 test for freerdp2. Left review comments.
  • LP: #2063260 MP: suggested to file it against debian because the package is a sync. Gave instructions on how to file a bug or MP there
  • LP: #2058914: MP needs to be resubmitted for the noble release, and SRU paperwork needs to be filed. That does not prevent a first pass review, though, which I did.
  • LP: #1097467: sponsored for oracular, this unfortunately missed noble
  • LP: #2058045: request from upstream to update lighttpd to a new upstream version. Explained in a comment why we don’t do that ahead of debian, and gave pointers to the SRU process.
  • LP: #2061954: filezilla crash. Updated test plan in the SRU template, and sponsored for noble (that makes me illegible for its sru review, btw).
