Bug#571532: gij: Bus error when executing ant
 
Package: gij
Version: 4:4.4.2-3
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks unrelated software

Hi,

gij fails with bus error when execution ant (1.8) and causes many FTBFS errors.
An example to reproduce the problem will be attached.

Cheers,

clone 571532 -1
reassign -1 ant
thanks

so why does 1.7 work, and not 1.8? If we cannot resolve this, we should release
squeeze with 1.7.


I don't plan to work on this myself.

I have no idea why gij fails with bus error. I have uploaded a new
source package ant1.7 that can be used by packages that are arch
dependent. Downgrading the severity because we will have a workaround.

We are short before the freeze; the release architectures still include
architectures which require gij in it's current form (hppa, kfreebsd-i386 and
kfreebsd-amd64). Please either port OpenJDK to these archs (hey, you're still an
OpenJDK maintainer ;), or stay with the current ant version in testing.
Packaging the 1.8 version as ant1.8 might be the better choice.

Hello,

Short version: +1

I'm not a big Java specialist, just a packager, but we've seen quite a
lot of FTBFS bugs due to the upload of ant 1.8. I'm personally hit by
one for FreeMind, so I would support Matthias' suggestion until someone
explains what has actually changed in ant.


One more argument: ant 1.8 is obviously not backwards compatible with
ant 1.7; this makes it a transition, which shouldn't be started that
late and without preparation in the release process.


Thanks, Eric

We have a bug in gij, but not in ant.

Why do you think that it is not backwards compatible?

Sure, but...

1.7; this makes it a transition, which shouldn't be started that late and

Why do you think that it is not backwards compatible?
Well, just after ant 1.8 has been uploaded, we've got at least 10 FTBFS
bugs.
Second, if I look at http://apache.mirror.iphh.net/ant/README.html, I
see quite an impressive amount of "Changes that could break older
environments".

And, third, specifically for FreeMind, I suspect I've been hit by:
* when nested into builds that have been invoked by <ant> tasks
<subant> might set the wrong basedir on the called projects.
Bugzilla Report 30569.
because upstream seems to have worked around this bug, build doesn't
work anymore.
So, of course, you might argue that the bug is in the build procedure of
FreeMind (and you would be right), but fact is that ant doesn't work the
same as it used to do (for whichever good reason), which is the
definition of a lack of backwards compatibility.


I'm not against upgrading to ant, but I would had prefered to not be
obliged to work in urgency to fix a problem caused by somebody else's
upload.


Thanks, Eric



Torsten
