Description Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2017-06-04 07:00:23 UTC
Is it OK to stabilise media-video/smtube-17.5.0 and remove older?

That would allow removing a consumer of dev-qt/qtwebkit:4 which is ancient and will never see any security updates.
Comment 1 zlg (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-06-04 08:22:58 UTC
smtube-17.5.0-r1 would be a candidate for stabilizing, since the only thing new is the fix from bug 620720.

I guess we can add arches then...?

> I guess we can add arches then...?

It's a fairly simple application; feel free to add any arch it works on. I only have an ~amd64 multilib machine to work with.

Just pinging for the state of things. I don't want to hold up Qt4 removal.
Comment 5 Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2017-09-15 10:51:16 UTC
I saw you marked runtime testing as required, I'm curious what runtime issues you think might be uncovered during arch testing that were not discovered during the ~arch waiting period.

It's possible that the new version may not have updated web API code, or may not hand control over to a media player like it should. I had no issues with it, but I thought there was a chance other arches might discover a problem and erred on the side of caution.

If that's not how runtime testing is meant to be used, then please disregard that part.
Comment 7 Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2017-09-26 13:14:28 UTC
In my opinion it's not the role of an arch team to uncover routine upstream bugs like that - that's what a package maintainer and waiting period is for.

I believe *arch* teams should focus on identifying arch-specific issues - see for more information.
Comment 8 zlg (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-09-26 20:29:58 UTC
Thanks for the link. I've not experienced any issues with the package, and I use it practically daily. In general, if smtube passes build-time, it will be okay at run-time. The only thing that can really mess it up is if/when the YouTube API changes.

I've removed the runtime testing flag to clear this up. Sorry for misusing that option.

These are brought in transitively though so while it would be optimal to fix it, it won't block stabilisation.
