From: Olaf Meeuwissen <email@example.com> To: Devuan Bug Tracking System <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: mirrors: InRelease files missing Origin: field Date: Mon, 23 Apr 2018 20:47:19 +0900 Package: mirrors Severity: normal Dear Maintainer, The *_InRelease files for pkgmaster.devuan.org and deb.devuan.org (and probably also all *.deb.devuan.org mirrors) do not include an Origin: field. The *_InRelease files on packages.devuan.org do. I haven't checked amprolla.devuan.org or *.mirrors.devuan.org. This came to light debugging odd behaviour of `lsb_release -c` (as you can see illustrated below in the System Information where the codename is `n/a`) using deb.devuan.org (see https://lists.dyne.org/lurker/message/20180420.115057.d298af7b.en.html). Whether `lsb_release` should consult these files is a separate issue but when I switch to packages.devuan.org and run `apt-get update` the codename all of a sudden displays as `ascii`, as expected. There may be other packages that rely on the Origin: information. One that I am aware of is unattended-upgrades. Its configuration lets the user select which parts of their APT sources should be upgraded unattended. One of the specifications it supports is based on the Origin: field. Absence of the field in InRelease files will probably break that. -- System Information: Distributor ID: Devuan Description: Devuan GNU/Linux testing/unstable Release: testing/unstable Codename: n/a Architecture: x86_64 Kernel: Linux 4.9.0-6-amd64 (SMP w/2 CPU cores) Locale: LANG=C.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=ja_JP.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash Init: sysvinit (via /sbin/init) Hope this helps, -- Olaf Meeuwissen, LPIC-2 FSF Associate Member since 2004-01-27 GnuPG key: F84A2DD9/B3C0 2F47 EA19 64F4 9F13 F43E B8A4 A88A F84A 2DD9 Support Free Software https://my.fsf.org/donate Join the Free Software Foundation https://my.fsf.org/join
