While the emails are sent under Dominique's name, I made some changes to the underlying script, so I would like to make you aware of some changes you might see in your inbox tonight.
The whole reminder was lifted to include more cases of a problematic package, so you will see "reminders" of problems you haven't heard of before.
What we do so far: for failing packages we - send an email one week after the first failure - send a reminder the week after - include the package in a mail to factory@opensuse for the wider audience after 4 weeks - create a delete request after 6 weeks
What's new now:
- unresolvable packages in openSUSE:Factory will get the same 6 weeks before drop as failing packages. - packages with multibuild flavors failing will get the same 6 weeks - packages with 2nd spec files failing will get the same 6 weeks - i586 failures also get the same 6 weeks. If you don't care for i586, it's fine for me but then use ExclusiveArch or ExcludeArch - uninstallable packages will also get the same 6 weeks. Including packages uninstallable on i586. For this case, I now add the installcheck output as comment to the package in openSUSE:Factory (as the reminder links there). This already triggers a comment email notification if you're subscribed to it.
