Preparing for Kinetic Sync 2020-08-20

Kinetic Maintainers,

We’re due for another Kinetic sync I’ve identifed one regression of pyros_iterfaces_ros

We are also working towards having a stricter policy for failing builds in the rosdistro. And to that end there’s a new script for detecting failing builds on specific platforms. With the goal that everything in the rosdistro will be expected to build at the time of the sync.

The report is below. I will edit it with links to the upstream tickets after I file them.

Except for resolving the below issues, I plan to hold new Kinetic releases until we sync at the beginning of next week.

This includes a new release of ros_comm so if anyone has time for extra manual testing this is a good opportunity.

@asmodehn I’ve tickted pyros_interface_ros https://github.com/pyros-dev/pyros-rosinterface/issues/17

The other packages have been individually ticketed and are now pending removal from the buildfarm:

armhf

arm64

@tfoote: what are the criteria to end up on the list to be removed?

I’m currently trying to diagnose build failures for haros_catkin, which is released into both Kinetic and Melodic, and fails to build for all platforms other than amd64 – and has been failing for a very long time (but I didn’t know as build.ros.org is on a spamlist).

Example failed build: Kbin_uX32__haros_catkin__ubuntu_xenial_i386__binary/140 (for i386, but the arm64 and armhf builds also fail).

When I saw your post I would’ve expected haros_catkin to be listed as well, but I can’t find it.

(I believe I’ve found the issue and have opened a PR on an upstream dependency btw)

The script is only looking at the repository for missing packages. haros_catkin still exists in the repository at the right version based on the last successful build, and it hasn’t been invalidated and removed due to not having a direct dependency on a changed package being rebuilt. (The invalidation logic relies on the debian package dependencies of which this doesn’t have any that would invalidate it. It only has build and buildtool depends on packages inside the distro.)

We have a follow on release fixing an identified regression

We’re most of the way through a rebuild, but I plan to hold new releases until the rebuild completes over the weekend so we can sync again on before next week.
