Description Dominique Leuenberger 2019-09-06 08:02:12 UTC
fakeroot is part of the staging process in Tumbleweed and thus has to be guaranteed to always build

This package though very often fails in the test suite, which is a major annoyance in the staging process.

The test suite usually fails like this:

[   64s] FAIL: t.tar
[   64s] PASS: t.touchinstall
[   64s] PASS: t.truereturn
[   64s] PASS: t.xattr
[   64s] ============================================================================
[   64s] Testsuite summary for fakeroot 1.22
[   64s] ============================================================================
[   64s] # TOTAL: 11
[   64s] # PASS:  10
[   64s] # SKIP:  0
[   64s] # XFAIL: 0
[   64s] # FAIL:  1
[   64s] # XPASS: 0
[   64s] # ERROR: 0

Please work towards this package building reliably

Thank you for the report. However, I guess the maintainer is set incorrectly. I am not involved in fakeroot.

weird - that's the information from
in this case please unselect you as maintainer of that package - and I'll try to find somebody else (maybe Tomas has somebody in his team that could help out here)

   3 (pluskalm     2017-06-21 11:11:06     4)   <person userid="sdrahn" role="maintainer" />

That's when Daniel was added as maintainer
Comment 4 Alynx Zhou 2019-09-09 01:58:38 UTC
So anyone knows who's the maintainer? Or maybe I should find someone in changelog to assign?
Comment 5 Tomáš Chvátal 2019-09-09 07:47:30 UTC
This is not in any of SUSE paid products so for openSUSE the packagers have to take the packages on voluteer basis and I can't 'convince' them ;-)
Comment 6 Avindra Goolcharan 2021-01-25 16:00:00 UTC
For posterity... the tests are being skipped since about June 2020.

Comment 7 Avindra Goolcharan 2021-03-03 01:01:34 UTC
Updated status to "CONFIRMED" since it's a known problem. Also of note: this package became flakier after glibc 2.33. Probably needs solid testing (if anyone can help with this, please do).
