    The Crypto In Main revolution has begun
    Submitted by Anonymous on Wednesday, March 20, 2002 – 18:53
    Uploads to non-us are not making it to the archive right now. This situation is supposed to be over soon. It is related to the crypto-in-main transitions. For all I know, it might be over today or next month.

    Anyone tracking unstable, keep your pants up and stop filing bugs about it.
    Please verify it twice before you fill bugs that are probably caused by a
    upload to non-US being held in the limbo. If you don’t know, don’t file the
    bug. Ask in debian-user or #debian instead.

    Rob: All installations of NEW packages into the archive are also frozen.

    Joy: update — it’s officially started (original mail here). Start checking your “Section:” fields, people 🙂

    just look into incoming!
    e.g.: apache-ssl, curl-ssl, etc. 🙂

    see you, fan

    Is there a list of all affected packages available?
    Are now all crypto-packages merged? I have no clue at all so please tell me 🙂

    see you, fan

    The list includes all packages in non-US/main that were placed there because of cryptography export laws in the US. I’m not sure anyone has a list compiled.

    Not all crypto packages are merged into main, this is just the beginning of the merging process.
    It should all be done within a couple of months I guess.

    hey, so we can wait with the release until this is done. Great news! An excuse for the loong cycle.

    Actually, although you said this jokingly, I think this has been a significant reason for woody’s slowness in getting released..although not the only one.

    Is the non-us INCOMING directory available anywhere in the same way that incoming.debian.org provides the regular one? I’m hoping that a problem I’m seeing in mozilla (a non-us package) might have been resolved by a recent upload, but since non-us isn’t getting any new packages I can’t get at it. If there were a public incoming directory, I could get a usable mozilla again maybe…

    Just wondering…

    Stuart.

    If you want to get going now just grab a nightly build of Mozilla. The install puts everything in one directory so it isn’t a big deal that it isn’t a deb unless you have other requirements. I wrote a script that grabs the daily for me so I upgrade every couple days. Works for me…

    I’ve been searching for answer to this for several days. Is either cupsys or samba broken right now (maybe affected by crypto in main)? I cannot print from my windows machine. I suspect it is a glitch in either packages, but I cannot say for sure. I get an error: “smbdlpstat: unable to connect” when booting the linux machine, which is the printing machine. Thanks.

    I don’t think the problem is related to the crypto change. I’ve been setting up a print server at home myself, using samba and cups. It seemed to be working OK until after some upgrade.

    Now, when I enable debugging on samba, this is the error message that seems to be the problem:

    [2002/03/17 18:11:02, 3] printing/print_generic.c:print_run_command(90)
    Running the command `/usr/bin/lpr -r -Pbjc4200 smbprn.000004.JaA3wY’ gave 1

    But, when I downgrade the samba version to the one in potato, I still have the same problem.

    Anyway, my point is that there does seem to be something screwy with cups and samba integration, but I don’t think that it’s to do with the crypto change.

    In this case, it’s operator error. I apologize, but I did a major change on my network, and forgot to update my hostname on the server (how stupid). It is working again.

    For those of us who don’t follow the mailing lists, what “crypto-in-main transitions”?

    Crypto software like ssh and mod-ssl and all that fun stuff has been deemed legal to be moved from the ‘non-us’ branch of the distribution to the ‘main’ branch of the distribution. This is good because it let debian install things like ssh/sshd by default, and eliminate developers having to maintain two packages – with and without crypto – like wget and wget-ssl for instance.

    Lots of headaches get resolved by this, but unfortunately, there are a lot of pacakges affected by the changeover, thus the problems.

    And if you’re running unstable, you should really be at least on the -announce and -news lists. It will save your butt more than once, I promise.
