this is mostly a notification mail about some inconsistencies with
dbscripts where under specific circumstances some leftover packages
remain in staging or testing. This issue seems to exist since the last
major rollout in June.
There seem to be at least two different bugs involved, one in `db
remove` and another one in `db move`. I've tracked down the `db remove`
one, and am debugging the other issue which also affects libreoffice.
I've also written an `fsck` script to detect issues inside the pacman
binary repo or within the dbscripts state repo. It seems since June this
lead to around 15 occurrences.
If you encounter a new leftover package, please feel welcomed to send me
a ping. I'm happy to try to help you, or just check if it may be a new
or an existing issue. However, there isn't any actionable for packagers
for the time being as leftover packages can't be manually removed via
`db remove`. I'll correct the inconsistencies as soon as the bug is
Hope this helps one or the other packager to get some insights into the
existence of this issue.
