Reproducible: Always

Comment 1 Miro Hrončok 2023-06-15 16:34:06 UTC
It's failing at least since April:

This blocks the Python 3.12 rebuild and without a successfully rebuilt LibreOffice, we cannot emerge the side tag, as LibreOffice is still included in the blocking release media.

Stephan, you are marked as a default bugzilla assignee but are not listed as one of the maintainers of the package. Should this NOT be assigned to you?

Comment 5 Gwyn Ciesla 2023-06-15 20:34:40 UTC
What is the python 3.12 rebuikld side tag?

Comment 6 Gwyn Ciesla 2023-06-15 20:47:05 UTC
f39-python. Of course. :)

When I do an x86_64 scratch build adding `--enable-debug` to LO's configure, the output contains

The leading "SetStorage - empty storage!" appears to be normal and harmless, but the rest suggest that there is some issue with NSS.

Comment 8 Gwyn Ciesla 2023-06-16 13:32:50 UTC
I built it successfully in the side tag by disabling tests. There's a new release, I'll see if that fixes the above, but at least one patch needs refactoring.

(AFAIU, setting up a new default owner for LibreOffice issues is work in progress per the discussion thread starting at <> "SIG proposal: libreoffice-sig".)
