OK, I'll ask Tim to move the Birb over to main, pull our mozilla-binaries, and announce it in in the package threads. For future maintainers, I think these steps will work for rebuilds of new releases from Debian:

Bump the epoch to 2: for our rebuild.

Copy the control file over from the last MX rebuild. Check the changelog to see if any new langpacks were added and add those to the control file. You don't need dummy transitional packages for new ones.

Optional: the -dbg files end up at hundreds of MB and are very seldom used. They can be disabled in the rules file by editing the override:

Code: Select all

override_dh_strip:
	if [ "$(RELEASE)" != "UNRELEASED" ]; then \
to

Code: Select all

override_dh_strip:
	if [ "$(RELEASE)" = "UNRELEASED" ]; then \
Tbird automatically builds using all available cores/threads. I just noticed that the Liquorix kernel does this as well.
Just curious about how we build new releases of tb now:
1-Do we still use the get-orig-source and if so do we need a new method for lightning?
2-Since it sounds like we're really building them now as opposed to just repackaging the binaries, they'll need to be built on their real arch's instead of using the -B ai386/-aamd64 trick, right?
3-what comes after the backslash in your debug removal script?

Code: Select all

override_dh_strip:
	if [ "$(RELEASE)" != "UNRELEASED" ]; then \

4-anything (ie;icedove) else?

Yes, just get the new sources from Debian now when they appear there. That includes orig.tarballs for the localization and lightning sources, too, so it's all just one build. Just get all the source files and run "dpkg-source -x".

And, yes, build it from source like a normal backport package now. It worked fine in pbuilder, but a single build at times consumes over 8 GB of RAM, so doing four at once could go over 32 GB RAM usage if you happen to hit their max memory use all simultaneously.

It doesn't matter what comes after that line in the rules file, just edit it by taking out the exclamation point. This reverses what the following line does, which is to build the great big dbg file.

Upgraded to 52.9 and been using it without problems. Looks to be mainly Bugfix, there had been some vulnerabilities reported and a possible buffer overflow when adjusting
canvas sizes. And they have added a compacting prompt for on-line IMAP mail. Thanks Mike - see more wildfires in your territory.

I'm not sure how it affects MX, but TB 52.9.0 has apparently been rescinded due to possible data loss if attachments are detached: https://mail.mozilla.org/pipermail/tb-p ... 06094.html

Looks like 63.0 is to be the next release: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1473893

Doubt if I have ever removed attachments, would not think to test that function. They are planning to issue a fix to 52.9.
