Upcoming glibc 2.37 update in Lunar

Hi folks,

As usual, we’ll update glibc in the archive when the new 2.37 will come, which should happen on Thursday, with the upload hopefully on Friday.

As a direct consequence, the autopkgtest queues will blow up, and most arch:any packages uploaded after glibc will be stuck waiting for it to migrate as they’ll have picked up the new version symbols.

Looking at the (incomplete) changelog I don’t expect too much breakage. We’ve done a test rebuilt of the archive back in December, and I was only able to detect one build failure that seemed clearly glibc-related, which I’m currently investigating.

In the mean time, you can use my PPA to test your packages against a very recent snapshot (with the exception of the armhf architecture which is currently FTBFS).
