autopkgtests on s390x is back, I revived the lxc hosts. I also re-enabled it for proposed-migration, now it has some catching up to do.

Little new fatrace release 0.12, fixing a regression in 0.10 (crashes when using -p).

Thanks Adele, this was a fantastic concert!

This woman just has a goddess-like voice, and we really enjoyed the show: not too pretentious, but just great for the O2 arena.

Greetings from London!

Saw her a few years ago before she got insanely popular, she's an incredible performer, glad you liked it!

In the current Ubuntu devel series we are really close to dropping some ancient SysV init legacy (remember, we moved to upstart a decade ago, and now to systemd):

$ sudo dpkg -P initscripts
Removing initscripts (2.88dsf-59.3ubuntu3) ...
Purging configuration files for initscripts (2.88dsf-59.3ubuntu3) ...

I uploaded the necessary packaging changes for most things that affect my desktop install, except for two packages (console-setup and upstart) which I only stashed into the packaging VCS for now.

This uncovered two remaining issues (https://launchpad.net/bugs/1584134 and https://launchpad.net/bugs/1584124) which are simple to fix.

Nice way to end the Friday evening!

+Michael Biebl, we could move /lib/init/vars.sh to from initscripts to init-system-helpers then, if it's official SysV init script API in Debian?

..and that folks is a visual interpretation of what goes on in our heads when we fix bugs

Now that the pageful of upgrade fixes for xenial can be dropped, the remaining Ubuntu changes to systemd shrinked down to one patch. \o/

I'm trying to think of a way to put that into Debian as well, and only apply the patch when building on Ubuntu. I just wish debian/patches/{debian,ubuntu}.series would be applied in addition to debian/patches/series, not replace it entirely. Nobody wants to maintain two almost identical series files..

Yay, the first production result for an armhf test run on a remote LXD container in a Scalingstack arm64 instance. This seems to work reasonably well.

The controller instance for this is still hand-cobbled, but charming this up is just a SMOP. I now started four workers, which should help to grind through the backlog.

Eventually these will replace the manually maintained Calxeda nodes that use classic LXC, but before that we really need to figure out why these arm64 instances auto-destruct after some time.. (https://launchpad.net/bugs/1531768) It's not nearly as bad as a month ago, though, so let's see how long they hold up. ☺

Yay, due to some unknown fix arm64 instances have stopped auto-destructing themselves (https://launchpad.net/bugs/1531768). So I took another attempt at moving armhf autopkgtesting from our manually maintained Calxeda nodes into Scalingstack.

I now have a cloud-init userdata script which sets up a large btrfs partition for LXD (as that's vastly faster than on ext4), configure the LXD bridge, cron job to regularly build autopkgtest images for all supporte releases etc., and it works quite nicely. I've been running a test loop on this over night using autopkgtest's remote lxd runner, without a single hiccup.

This also uses socat to forward the local Unix socket to the TCP port, instead of lxd's builtin SSL web server. autopkgtest sends a lot of "lxc exec" calls, and as each of those would have to go through the whole SSL negotiation, running tests is achingly slow. With that trick (thanks to +Tyler Hicks in https://launchpad.net/bugs/1538174) this now runs very fast and smooth, even though all the operations happen on a remote LXD server!

(Running remotely is necessary due to how our different clouds (Prodstack vs. Scalingstack) are organized and firewalled from each other.)
