Default Are Sha* checksums accepted by dak ?

Dear all,

I made an upload this afternoon that was silently dropped.
( http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/debian-med-packaging/2008-April/001432.html )

After randomly checking some debian-devel-changes emails, it seems that
the accepted packages do not have the latest Sha checksums introduced by
dpkg. Are they cause of dropping ?

Have a nice day,

Yes, format 1.8 uploads are not accepted by the archive software for
some reason but generated as default by the dpkg which was uploaded to
unstable yesterday.

You should mails like the following though:
Rejected: gnome-games_2.22.1.1-1_i386.changes: unknown format '1.8'.

The "Format: 1.8" in *.changes files is currently refused by dak.
This change was added two days ago by Joerg Jaspert (via Ryan Murray) to
avoid some broken *.changes files due to debsign not handling the new
Checksums-* fields.

Yesterday Joerg told us to go ahead with the dpkg upload as he
planned to fix dak in the evening. He did so but his patch is not yet
applied live on ftp-master... we're waiting for a full ftpmaster to
apply his patch.

So hold on or downgrade dpkg-dev to 1.14.16.6 for now.

Cheers,

Anthony Towns has applied a fix to dak and Format: 1.8 is accepted now.
He also resurrected the uploads which have been rejected due to this check
only.

I am seeing my uploads rejected too as of right now. I just got back from a
short trip and was trying to fix some bugs.

Is a dpkg-dev downgrade the best option?

If you're using debsign (from devscripts), then you need also need to upgrade
devscripts to 2.10.25 as previous versions didn't handle the newer changes
Format properly.

Other situations to be careful of are using debrsign (remote debsign must be
updated) and building packages in a sid chroot on a non-sid system.
Basically, make sure you're aware of which package versions you're actually
using.
