Bug#929450: caml-crush, build-dependencies unsatisfiable on armel

Thomas Calderon
Hi there,

It's unfortunate that OCaml has removed the support for ocamlopt for armel, it sounds like CamlCrush will not be able to ship for armel.
Is it required that I create an updated Debian release excluding armel as a target or as you said, ftpmaster can just remove the binaries?
I would have thought that I have to specifically exclude it in the Architecture field?

Thanks,

Thomas

caml-crush build-depends on ocaml-native-compilers. In stretch this was
a real package. In buster it is a virtual package provided by ocaml-base
on most architectures, but does not seem to exist at all on armel. In
the ocaml changelog I see "drop support for ocamlopt on armel as
suggested by upstream" which I suspect reflects this change.

If this package can be reasonablly made to work without
ocaml-native-compilers on armel then you should do so, if you belive it
is not reasonable to support this package on armel please
reassign/retitle this to ftpmaster so they can remove the armel binaries.

I don't think I have access or permissions to rename/reassign the bug to ftpmaster so they can remove the armel binaries.

How can I move this forward so that the package doesn't get autoremoved next week?

Thanks,

Thomas

OK, let's have them removed, when I will push an updated version, I will make sure to remove armel from the list of targets.

Do I need to do anything else for now?

Thanks,

Thomas

Removing the binaries is enough in cases like this, they won't be rebuilt until/unless their build-dependencies become available again.

I'm not sure if the binary removal will propagate automatically from unstable to testing during the freeze or if one needs to ask the release team for that.
