Bug#798947: chirp: unsupported firmware: N5R3409BFP3-25. Please package more often

Arturo Borrero Gonzalez
Package: chirp
Version: 0.4.1-1.1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: upstream

Dear maintainer,

thanks for your work in chirp :-)

I'm hitting an unsupported firmware error: N5R3409BFP3-25.
I bet upstream supports it in their daily builds.

Would you please upload more often to debian unstable or to debian experimental?

thanks, best regards.

Ok, having looked at the CHIRP website, because this has come up before, I
do see the following text:

  "We are transitioning to rolling releases. For the best results, please
  download the current daily build!"

So I'm guessing maybe we should start packaging daily builds. The last
"release" was October 2014.

It may also be worth looking at backports for CHIRP too, though that's a
seperate discussion.

As I use CHIRP, I would be happy to help out with the more regular
packaging if the current package maintainers are happy with that. Those guys
will likely have a better understanding of the package however, so these
comments should be taken as only informational.

Thanks,
Iain.

The packages in Debian currently reflect the latest upstream release.  I
don't have the time or motivation to package unreleased versions of
chirp for experimental.

Are you taking into account that perhaps we never get another CHIRP
release? (due to upstream rolling releases)

Are you willing to accept help? f.e. Iain offered a helping hand.

chirp has moved to rolling releases so the current Debian package is not
the latest release.

According to the control file the package is maintained by the Debian
Hamradio  Maintainers, do you have any objections to another team member
working on the package?

Colin, Iain, Bdale, and All,

I expect that this reply is going to cause significant backlash by some.
Yes I realize that uttering "Launchpad" is a *sin* according to some in the Debian world.

Note that I use Chirp on an Ubuntu 14.04 LTS system and stay very up to date.

To that end I think 99.99999999% of your packaging work is already done for you.

I direct your attention to http://ppa.launchpad.net/dansmith/chirp-snapshots/ubuntu/pool/main/c/chirp-daily/ and the 'deb' files contained within.

After all we are a _Ham Radio Community_ and should be able to support each other no matter what the OS of choice is.

Debian has the latest "old stable release" (which is what upstream now calls
them, indicating that those releases have ended), which used to be released
here:

   http://chirp.danplanet.com/download/

0.4.1 is now a year old.  Okay... obviously this package needs to change.



The new rolling releases are a problem because the only thing I see being
released are daily builds which appear to be periodically deleted and which
come with the following disclaimer:

   "The builds here are generated nightly at 4am pacific time from the tip
    of the CHIRP development tree.  They should contain the most up-to-date
    bugfixes, but they may also contain the most up-to-date bugs.  Use the
    builds here at your own peril!

    I recommend you join the chirp_users mailing list before/while using
    these builds so that you have an idea of what's going on with the
    current development.

    Thanks,
    Dan KK7DS"

Because the "rolling release" tarballs are being deleted I think the only
way forward that makes any sense is to switch the package to track the
upstream repository (because otherwise there's no way to verify that the
released tarball is intact/correct), which looks like it's in mercurial:

   http://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/repository

I haven't yet been able to find a link to actually be able to clone this
repository though.  If someone finds it, please ping the bug and the
[debian-hams] list.


I've also had a look at the Ubuntu PPC, which names the package
"chirp-daily" among a list of other issues -- these packages are definitely
not releasable to Debian as-is, nor do they appear to help with the Debian
packaging work.

None at all.  My needs are met with the currently packaged version for
now, so I haven't been paying any attention to upstream changes and am
more than happy for someone else with greater interest to take this over!
