Highlights

The State of the Archive

  • The ongoing libevent transition is at 88% of completion
  • The GCC 7 transition has begun in artful-proposed; GCC 7 will be the default in 17.10, please help ensure your packages in the archive are up to date and ready to build with this new toolchain.
  • The transition to Perl 5.26 is in progress in artful-proposed, with some delays due to issues with the autopkgtest infrastructure and a sync of a reupload from Debian.  This is expected to reach artful early next week.
  • The python3 transition continues, with python3.5 being dropped from the list of supported versions in artful-proposed.  Packages uploaded today will build without python3.5 support, and python3.5 will be dropped from artful before release.
