Description Dominique Leuenberger 2018-01-08 11:20:18 UTC
Build log:


Our current wt package (version 3.3.5) does not build with boost 1.66 (updated on Dec 21 2017)

Upstream has commits ready to make it work with boost 1.66:

(to keep compat to older boost/asio)

These commits are only in git so far, the latest release (4.0.2) does not yet contain them

Dominique, thanks for researching this, the fixes however don't apply easily, and there is no dedicated package maintainer for this.
Filed a drop request therefore.

wt :

Let's CC at least the leechcraft maintainers here then

INFO: wt does not build with boost and has no active maintainer. It is thus scheduled for removal, which in turn breaks leechcraft.

There are two (three?) options:
* Drop leechcraft too
* Find a new active maintainer for wt and get it fixed
(* build leechcraft without wt support)

Tried patched and reported to upstream: https://redmine.emweb.be/issues/6197
Comment 4 Egbert Eich 2018-01-08 21:42:41 UTC
I've fixed the build for Factory now. Updated to 4.0.2 which required a patch for the build system on top. SR #562627.
Comment 5 Egbert Eich 2018-01-08 21:59:49 UTC
Patch provided to upstream:
Comment 6 Egbert Eich 2018-01-09 11:09:46 UTC
I've just submitted an update to Factory. SR ID #562859.
