> What can be done about this?

Help with updating and maintaining it or use semi-automated COPR build[1].

Rust packaging in Fedora very time consuming task, but i believe in future things will be better. More automation and such.


Comment 2 Fabio Valentini 2021-05-15 14:10:39 UTC
So ... do you plan to update the "official" starship package?

I'm already spending a lot of time keeping Rust crates in Fedora up-to-date, but I'm prioritizing that based on actual need - and I won't file review requests for new dependencies of *your* packages.

So if you're not planning to add the missing packages, it might be a better idea to orphan / retire it and direct people towards your COPR. That would also save me work, if the starship dependencies no longer need to be updated in Fedora.

Comment 3 Tiago d'Almeida 2021-05-27 17:19:01 UTC
Well ... I can try to update it. Please, @Fabio Valentini, how can I do that and help you a little bit?

Probably one we need one new crate to package. @Tiago Almeida i can add you co-maintainer and you can help with update. I wanted to do this at last weekend but... I don't mind orphan but in same time i don't want that *working* package was retired because i doubt that there is many people want to maintain rust software.

Comment 5 Tiago d'Almeida 2021-05-27 18:11:28 UTC
Ok, thanks for the report. I'll see what can I do and, yes, you can add me as co-maintainer.

Comment 6 Artem 2021-05-27 18:19:00 UTC
Great! What is your FAS name? I'll add you with full admin access. And i also try to package ASAP necessary new crates if there is need some.

@Fabio maybe you also interesting in this package? This awesome and handy software and nice to have official package.

Comment 7 Fabio Valentini 2021-05-27 18:31:46 UTC
I'm not using starship myself, so I'm probably not good comaintainer material - but I can work on some of the missing updates.

Note that it also looks like you queried an out-of-date repository cache:

- git2 updated to 0.13.19 a week ago
- regex updated to 1.5.4 a week ago
- serde updated to 1.0.126 a week ago

So at least those three should no longer be a problem.

New packages for the following crates will be needed:

- process_control
- shadow-rs
- versions

The following three crates can be freely updated to the required version, since starship is their only consumer in Fedora:

- attohttpc
- starship_module_config_derive
- sys-info

And then there are two crate updates that will need to be coordinated:

- quick-xml: also required by the latest crate(feed-rs) version, but blocked by missing dependencies of latest crate(newsflash)
- rust-ini: also required by crate(config), crate(silver), and crate(zram-generator); it may be possible to just bump the versions


I can try to prepare the necessary updates for attohttpc, starship_module_config_derive, sys-info as PRs, and I'll try to look at updating quick-xml and rust-ini and their dependent packages.

@Antem, my FAS is tjapro

Comment 10 Artem 2021-05-27 18:55:21 UTC
@Tiago, seems like your not in packager group? If so

@Fabio thanks a lot. /me starting packaging new necessary crates...

Comment 11 Tiago d'Almeida 2021-05-27 19:00:04 UTC
@Antem, I'll see it. Thanks a lot!

Comment 13 Artem 2021-05-27 20:25:20 UTC
> if you want

Sure thing.

Comment 14 Fabio Valentini 2021-05-31 10:13:03 UTC
Do you want to update starship on f34 as well?
Then you need to request and build shadow-rs, versions, and process_control on f34 branches as well.

Comment 15 Artem 2021-06-04 08:20:51 UTC
(In reply to Fabio Valentini from comment #14)

f34 definitely wanted. So now politic allowed building modules for non-Rawhide branches? Nice if so.

Almost all ready for updating Starship...

Comment 16 Fabio Valentini 2021-06-04 08:23:00 UTC
No, Rust packages are just no longer *removed* from stable branches:
Building them on f34 now works just like on rawhide. Special process is only used for f33 any longer.

That's why I asked if you could build shadow-rs, versions, and process_control for f34 branch as well (you probably need to request those dist-git branches first).

Comment 17 Artem 2021-06-04 08:46:18 UTC
This is great TBH. I'll request and build them for f34 ASAP.

Dirty draft build with Starship 0.54 compiles fine for Rawhide[1]. Do you recommend waiting for rust-rust-ini and rust-sys-info updates? OK if so. Waiting for you command then.


Comment 18 Fabio Valentini 2021-06-04 08:48:49 UTC
I need to build the rust-rust-ini updates in a side tag either way (because three packages need patches for the new version), so I would build everything including starship in that side tag in then submit everything as one update.

Can you try again, please?

Comment 23 Artem 2021-06-14 10:23:11 UTC
(In reply to Tiago d'Almeida from comment #22)
You not in packager group

Your first step is

Also updating Starship is not limited to trivial bumping starship version itself. There is a lot updating/fixing modules/dependencies work. So if you really want to help you also need to be in 'rust-sig' group.
