Default Bug#688330: gcc-4.7-base: WTF are you doing to the binary packages?

Package: gcc-4.7-base
Version: 4.7.2-1
Severity: serious

I don’t quite can believe this. What the hey are you doing with
your binary packages you officially upload to Debian, to get THIS?

Really, why do you upload binary packages that are *obviously* not
built from the source package you upload?


Note to anyone whose Multi-Arch is suffering from this, and who run
into this issue, a quick hack/würgaround:

tg@zigo:~ $ sudo rm /usr/share/doc/gcc-4.7-base/changelog.Debian.gz
tg@zigo:~ $ sudo apt-get --purge -f install

I think you could work on your politeness and adjust the tone of your
mails. Do a step back and reflect what you write and how it might
appear to others. Insults do not help your case.

I don't think Matthias had an malicious intent here, to hurt you and
induce suffering. Your mail does suggest that. I think it was merely a
human mistake of believing that a simple changelog mistake can be
fixed after a quite long gcc build.

Kind regards
Philipp Kern

Right. I know that formulating is not one of my better skills.

Yes, of course not.

Well, this is not the first time I noticed it, and M-A only made it
visible. I cannot help but wonder what else things are done to the
packages that were not built from source. Of course, people uploading,
for example, binaries for multiple architectures at once are even more
suspicious (especially when the source FTBFS on all buildds then and it
doesn’t get fixed for weeks)…

I’m sorry Matthias for singling you out, but this was just an instance
where I noticed it as repeated issue with gcc-* packages. And, one has
to admit, wondering about the what-else is not _that_ far a mental jump.

(Especially after getting told off by the backports ftpmasters for
daring to upload a package built on a Xen or KVM, don’t remember,
guest. I’m now always taking care to build my packages for Debian
on bare metal and in as clean and minimal an environment as possible.)

right, just forgot to include the regenerated .diff.gz into the upload.
