Renaud and I had two fine coding sessions at this weekend and we have
quite far advanced.
kiwix now builds on Debian sid and Debian wheezy in chroots (pbuilder)
and also works well during runtime (tested on sid only, though).
The package is also lintian clean apart from
,,hardening-no-fortify-functions'' false positives. As lately
discussed on debian-mentors these should remain as they are, because
the false-positive reporting is a lintian inaccuracy and this has to
be fixed in lintian.
@Renaud: in your last tarball you left a typo behind. I have fixed
that temporarily with a patch (please apply upstream):
@Renaud: I also played with the Makefile.in files. I believe you can
drop them from the upstream tarball completely. They get re-created
I have provided binary and source package here:
deb http://packages.das-netzwerkteam.de/debian wheezy nightly
deb http://packages.das-netzwerkteam.de/debian sid nightly
Also I have uploaded the package to mentors.debian.net for
introspection if people prefer that.
So the next steps are:
o Renaud fixes upstream with my patch (todo: Renaud) and possibly drop the
o import fixed upstream tarball on collab-maint/kiwix.git (todo: Mike)
O changelog cleanup (todo: Mike)
o Vasudev (+sponsor?) take a look on the package (todo: Vasudev)
o work in feedback from Vasudev (+sponsor)
o then: upload?
