 Ports freeze
Author: Chukharev

I remember that earlier FreshPorts had a reminder when a ports freeze was in effect. Now, I believe, ports are frozen, but no reminder is seen...

Agreed.

If you can find me the commit that set the freeze, I'll review it tonight when I get home. :)

A URL into the FreeBSD archives would help me.

Thank you.

http://www.freebsd.org/releng/index.html says about freeze status the following.

Subtree Status Contact Notes
ports/ Frozen portmgr@FreeBSD.org FreeBSD Ports Collection.

Let's look at the first of the upcoming releases.
http://www.freebsd.org/releases/7.1R/schedule.html indicates:
Action Expected Actual Description
Reminder announcement -- 22 August 2008 Release Engineers send announcement email to developers...
Announce the Ports Freeze -- 22 August 2008 Someone from portmgr@ should email freebsd-ports@...

Announce doc/ tree slush TBD -- Notification of the impending doc/ tree slush...
Ports tree frozen 8 September 2008 8 September 2008 Only approved commits will be permitted to the ports...

Ok, what was commited around Sep 8? The only commit I can connect to the freeze is
http://docs.freebsd.org/cgi/getmsg.cgi?fetch=766329+0+archive/2008/cvs-ports/20080914.cvs-ports
Hmm... Not much.

Aha! The annoncement in -ports@ had a typo in Subject:
http://docs.freebsd.org/cgi/getmsg.cgi?fetch=126396+0+archive/2008/freebsd-ports/20080914.freebsd-ports

Well, I don't know how helpful can be these findings, but here you are.

Gud luck!

I think it's CVSROOT/approvers that I need to check.

I have fixed the problem. The solution is in my development tree. I'll leave it there for further testing before checking it in and moving it to production.

Hi Dan,

Is it possible to distinguish port freeze from slush? It would be nice...

Currently http://www.freebsd.org/releng/index.html indicates slush for
ports/ , and the only message I found about switching the status from
freeze to slush is
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/getmsg.cgi?fetch=266464+268580+/usr/local/www/db/text/2008/cvs-all/20080928.cvs-all

Best regards,
Vladimir

The diff on that commit is:

http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/CVSROOT-ports/approvers.diff?r1=1.18;r2=1.19

OR:

-^ports/ .* (portmgr|portsmgr)
+#^ports/ .* (portmgr|portsmgr)

If you look at the previous commit http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/CVSROOT-ports/approvers.diff?r1=1.17;r2=1.18, you'll see:

-#^ports/ .* (portmgr|portsmgr)
+^ports/ .* (portmgr|portsmgr)


So..... I don't see anyway to know that it's a slush....

The website now says it's a freeze. I think that's because it missed the commit/update/something.

If you can see a way to tell....

I guessed that might be the case, and it was one of the reasons I started this again... Can you fight against missed commits by checking last commit diff from a cron job? Say, weekly job would limit the delay of status change reasonably.

> If you can see a way to tell....

Unfortunately, nothing better than looking into the commit message... And that is definitely too bad unless a special test can be added to the commit checking system.

Best regards,
Vladimir

It was not a missed commit. It was a file permission error.

As for looking for missed commits, the only strategy I can think of is comparing the message-ids from the emails against those stored in the database.

Also, the SVN revision IDs may be useful here.

If someone wishes to write a script (shell, python, or perl) that obtains a text file of IDs (messages-id or emails) from somewhere, then compares them against the database, that will come up with a list of missing IDs. Then we would obtain those missing emails.

Now that I think a bit more: it is better to use message-ids from the mailing list archives. That way, we can get the emails easily, which can them be parsed into XML and loaded into the system.

If we use SVN revision ids, we will have to create an 'email-like' message and parse it.

I don't want to get into parsing email message content. It will have false positives.
