Default boost 1.42 serialization issue

Hi,
http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/18470#comment59302

there is a serious issue with boost 1.42 and upstream doesn't have a fix
yet. An user suggested that is better to downgrade boost to 1.41.


What do you think about this? Wait upstream to fix this and backport it
or downgrade? If downgrade, who want to help on rebuilding?

I am against the downgrade of boost.
We have to find a solution for encfs, and we cannot downgrade and
rebuild all of the packages just for encfs.

maybe i wasn't clear. encfs is a special case and is broken because of a
bug in boost. pasting the comment here:

> distribution that they should *not* upgrade to boost-1.42, as it can
> cause silent data lose for programs using boost serialization.

so what i'm understanding from here is that upstream doesn't want us to
ship boost 1.42

This is not "just for encfs", but for serious datacorruption. Encfs is
an example of something that breaks, but if serialization and
deserialization doesn't return the same data as the input data, then
things can go seriously wrong.

Damn...we must proceed with the downgrade.
I can rebuild mine and some others packages tomorrow.

Go for it. It is a small rebuild list and can be moved from [testing]
as soon as the build is finished (we know 1.41 works...).


I'd appreciate if this was done quickly. I have a toolchain update and
the start of the gmp rebuild sitting on my here waiting to upload.

I'm just rebuilding mkvtoolnix and source-highlight against testing/boost.
