Armbian developers meeting 2/1/2023


Recommended Posts

1. Checking the progress of Armbian-next






Armbian Next Jira:



2. Moving development related topics to GitHub

Summed here:



3. Questions around upcoming release


Today is the code freeze. Actions:


  • notify maintainers and prepare them to be ready on testings in two weeks from now
  • notify developers:
    • their code gets into release log only if exists in Jira. Minimum requirement is Jira issue or Jira story with Name, short description and field "Fix versions" set to 23.02
    • that code freeze is a milestone when we change our focus into code stabilisation and fixing bugs. It is not expected to drop existing work in progress at once but gradually close it.
    • in the code freeze period, there is additional restriction on code merge: pull requests approval from 1 person to 2 persons

here's the git shortlog; as mentioned in the meeting, I've reworded quite a bit, so this a lot longer (goes back in time further) than for other meetings.


Ricardo Pardini <ricardo@pardini.net> (441):
      armbian-next: `lib/tools` - python - config definitions capture and massaging
      armbian-next: `general-packaging`, `mkdebian` and `builddeb` are NO MORE
      armbian-next: update defaults and comments in config file
      armbian-next: atf: downgrade gcc errors to warnings, so ATF 2.5, 2.2 and others can be built on modern toolchains
      armbian-next: fix for .bin/.elf copy from atf to uboot dir
      armbian-next: kernel: config: `make olddefconfig` (not `oldconfig`, which is interactive) when `KERNEL_CONFIGURE=yes`
      armbian-next: kernel build: always add container (series/patch-dir) mtime as minimum mtime for patch results
      armbian-next: do not exclude 'CC' messages from kernel make
      armbian-next: remove warm/cold bundles from `fetch_from_repo`, replace with 2 invocation-specific hooks and `gitballs` (.tar of .git)
      armbian-next: try to parse `Source: linux-5.x.y-rcZ` correctly into `VER=5.x.y-rcZ` instead of `VER=5.x.y`
      armbian-next: allow overriding rkbins repo URL with `RKBIN_GIT_URL`
      armbian-next: u-boot: introduce `UBOOT_DEBUGGING=yes` which enables `CONFIG_LOG=y` and others
      armbian-next: atf: add `LOG_LEVEL=40` (up from default 20) and `BUILD_STRING="armbian"` to atf make invocation
      armbian-next: back to ANSI logs by default; HTML logs only by `EXPORT_HTML_LOG=yes`
      armbian-next: u-boot: extract into functions; add hooks - for more flexibility
      armbian-next: python: info: replace instances of ${SRC} with literal `${SRC}` so infos are more comparable
      armbian-next: `check_loop_device()` now uses `do_with_retries 5 ...` to give the OS time
      armbian-next: introduce `KERNEL_EXTRA_DIR` to suffix `LINUXSOURCEDIR` forcefully
      armbian-next: kernel-localmodconfig: update `kernel_config_mtime` after running `localmodconfig`, otherwise changes not detected
      armbian-next: traps: cleanups: run cleanups in the reverse order they were added; allow running one single cleanup and removing from list
      armbian-next: cleaning: fix shortcircuits, warn about unknown clean levels
      armbian-next: fix logging headers in HTML/ANSI log output
      armbian-next: WiP: u-boot: add fasthash to u-boot
      armbian-next: u-boot: add debug info when hacking `CONFIG_ENV_IS_IN_EXT4` in u-boot `.config`

      armbian-next: logs: avoid errors by cwd'ing to SRC
      armbian-next: uboot: use CFLAGS/KCFLAGS everywhere; run make through `unbuffer` (from `expect` package) for full color logging

      armbian-next: cleaning: don't complain about 'none' `CLEAN_LEVEL`
      armbian-next: sources/families: meson64: gx: use `python2` explicitly for calling `acs_tool.pyc`; better logging
      armbian-next: prepare a bin dir inside WORKDIR with a `python` symlink to `/usr/bin/python2` and add it to `PATH`
      armbian-next: retry apt update & apt install family packages in addition to board packages
      armbian-next: fix for tests of `BOOTSCRIPT` and `BOOTCONFIG!=none`
      armbian-next: split `early_prepare_host_dependencies()` (run early, during config, before aggregation) from `prepare_host()` (run after aggregation)
      armbian-next: re-add dependency `fdisk` after juggling rebases
      armbian-next: introduce `ARMBIAN_LOGS_TO_JOURNAL` and `ARMBIAN_LOGS_JOURNAL_IDENTIFIER` (logs `display_alert` to journald)

      armbian-next: many fixes after v29 rebase; mostly involving umount
      armbian-next: let all unmounting of `${MOUNT}` be done by `umount_chroot_recursive`
      armbian-next: less verbose umount_chroot(), except after first try, so we can know what is left mounted

      armbian-next: normalize mount/umount `$target`s to have (or not) the trailing slash
      armbian-next: move `resolv.conf` symlink to systemd to post_debootstrap_tweaks so customize phase has working DNS

      armbian-next: logging: don't bomb due to lack of `git` or `zstdmt`
      armbian-next: traps: don't duplicate error message/stacktrace when error occurs in subshell; instead indicate clearly `SUBSHELL`

      armbian-next: prepare-host:  don't manage ACNG in prepare if not asked to

      armbian-next: shellcheck: raise the bar, stop excluding "SC2155 Declare and assign separately to avoid masking return values"
      armbian-next: squash some shellcheck warnings; don't `local` and assign subshell value in same statement, that masks errors (`declare`/`local` almost-always works)
      armbian-next: shellcheck: raise the bar, stop excluding "SC2154 is referenced but not assigned"
      armbian-next: shellcheck: squash more shellcheck warnings; some long-lost variables being used; some unset's that are better reset's, etc

      armbian-next: u-boot: fix: check gcc version before trying to downgrade certain errors to warnings
      [kinetic] un-symlink `cli`/`main` `kinetic`->`jammy` packages; add `systemd-resolved` which was split off from main `systemd` package in Kinetic
