Looking for a signoff for i686 for the following packages in testing:
bash dash (new) hwdetect shadow filesystem
Most of the updates deal with adding a new shell and a new provide (sh), and the update to shadow is to remove its dependency on coreutils which was one of our remaining circular dependencies.
I'd appreciate it if someone wanted to rebuild these for x86_64- I wouldn't feel comfortable building a core package outside a chroot, which I currently do not have access to.
I'll build the x86_64 pkg.
Um...anyone? Otherwise I'm just going to assume they are fine by the end of today.h
That's not the way signoffs work. You CAN'T just 'assume' they are fine. You have to wait. Sorry, but it breaks the whole system otherwise.
Actually, these packages were already signed off by two devs: Dan for i686 and me for x86_64. From an IRC discussion with Aaron, the devs who put the packages in testing counts as one of the two signoff. That might seem strange but it's the way it works unless the signoffs gets a better definition.
Signed off for i686 (bash, dash, shadow, hwdetect)
However, question about filesystem: $ pacman -Ql filesystem filesystem /etc/arch-release filesystem /etc/crypttab filesystem /etc/fstab filesystem /etc/group filesystem /etc/gshadow filesystem /etc/host.conf filesystem /etc/hosts filesystem /etc/issue filesystem /etc/ld.so.conf filesystem /etc/motd filesystem /etc/nsswitch.conf filesystem /etc/passwd filesystem /etc/protocols filesystem /etc/resolv.conf filesystem /etc/securetty filesystem /etc/services filesystem /etc/shadow filesystem /etc/shells
Isn't it supposed to have a bunch of empty directories in it too (for FHS compliance and such)? Otherwise, signed off.
The empty directories are in the packages (run tar -tzvf on the packages). 'pacman -Ql' doesn't list directories as they are not really owned by any packages.
