Default MBF: switching away from homepage pseudo-header

Upgrading my own server to Squeeze, I've stumbled upon some stats that
I've been maintaining for quite a while. One of them is about how Debian
packages declare upstream homepage, by using either the old "Homepage"
pseudo-header in package description or the new field as per policy
§5.6.23, or both(!). Live data about that are available at [1].

The advantage of the new format is that it is uniformly handled by
various services, such as the PTS and packages.d.o, and can be more
uniformly extracted from package information.

I hereby propose a mass bug filing, severity minor, requesting migration
to the proper debian/control field. A dd-list is attached. Please let
me know if you spot false positives.

Cheers.


PS lintian has a warning-level tag about that [2], which reports 250
packages vs 279 reported by my script. I'll check where the
differences come from before actually reporting the bugs.

Isn't the lintian warning enough? Or do we actually need the bugs for
some reason?

That might also be a sign of packages lacking love, maybe some of them
should be orphaned or dropped instead?

Very outdated debhelper versions, policy versions and very aged last upload dates
could be signs of MIA developers and abandonware.

Please be aware that not all the packages need a recent upload,
especially when you consider non-software packages (e.g. artworks,
sounds and so on). Even lintian does not produce any error when using
old debhelper or policy versions (admitting the packages is fine with
the new versions):

<http://lintian.debian.org/tags/package-uses-deprecated-debhelper-compat-version.html>

Thx, bye,

I used the "Missing homepage field in debian/control" on the Blends
tasks pages to enable some QA work which finally leaded to the effect
that we now have all packages in Debian Med that in fact have a valid
homepage (some packages do not have such thing any more) and in *all*
cases the package needed some other polishing for some reasons.

So using the Homepage field as some means to spot packages which are
not maintained for some time seems to be a good idea and thus I would
welcome the MBF effort. If it turns out that some bugs will be fixed
by just dropping the package in question that's a reasonable thing to
do as well.

IMHO one upload per Debian release with a recent Standards-Version
should be done for every package. It shows that the maintainer is
active and continues to be interested in the package. Given that our
release cycle is > 1 year minimum this is a not too hard request.

Kind regards

Andreas.

My recalling of how we've handled this large scale transitions in the
past (hello /usr/doc) is that lintian usually goes a long way to reach a
critical mass of the migration, but that at some point you need to be a
bit more pushy than that.

There are various ways of being more pushy, one can be to raise the
lintian report level to error, but I believe in this case an explicit
bug report could be more useful (beside also enabling maintainers to
mark the change as pending in $VCS). Finally, some packages might have
been uploaded before the lintian warning was introduced and the
maintainers might have honestly missed the message. A bug report will
fix that.

I agree with Cyril that packages affected by this might be neglected,
but I don't want to entangle the two QA efforts. Maybe, if we go for the
MBF and tag the bugs properly, the presence of this bug can be perused
by monitors like bapase [1] as extra data to identify neglected
packages?

Cheers.

My own reading of this thread is that we can go ahead with this MBF.
You can find attached the template and actual package list, ready for
mass-bug invocation. Barring new objections, I'll file it tomorrow.

Once filed, I'll provide an export of packages still affected, in case
others want to use the list for other QA efforts such as orphaning /
removal, as requested by some participants in the thread.

Cheers.

[ This is an automated bug report, submitted as part of the mass bug filing
discussed at http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2011/02/msg00367.html ]

According to lintian, #PACKAGE# uses its long description to point to upstream
homepage, following an old Developer's Reference recommendation. That practice
has various drawbacks, including the inability to automatically process
homepage information from package-related services such as packages.d.o, the
PTS, etc. Starting from version 1.14.6, dpkg supports Homepage: as a regular
field in debian/control.

Please remove the deprecated pseudo header from #PACKAGE# long description and
turn it into a regular debian/control field.

In case of multiple binary packages, doing so would also allow to factor out
homepage information into the source stanza of debian/control.

Thanks for considering,
Cheers.

Done. The bug overview page on the BTS is at:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?tag=homepage-field;users=debian-qa@lists.debian.org

Ditto. The daily generated listing of still affected packages is at:

http://upsilon.cc/~zack/stuff/homepage-field/mbf-homepage-outstanding.txt

As suggested by others in this thread, the above list can give "extra
points" when looking for abandoned packages. It didn't exclude packages
where the bug is currently marked pending though, patches welcome (see
http://upsilon.cc/~zack/stuff/homepage-field/ for code info.)

Cheers.
