builders for 3.20 are up soon 3 days ago

From Natanael Copa to ~alpine/devel

Hi!

I am bootstrapping the builders for 3.20 now.

This means that we are now in a toolchain feature freeze for 3.20.
Please don't push anything major (anything you wouldn't push to a
stable branch) in the dependency chain for build-base and abuild. Eg.
make, cmake, gcc, bison, flex, etc.

We can still make ABI breaking updates of the other packages.

Thanks!

This also means that we only provide kamailio security fixes for the
latest stable release branch of alpine. If that is ok, then I'm all for
it.

For main repo we provide security fixes for two years.

Help from package maintainers needed for the python 3.12 upgrade 26 days ago

From Natanael Copa to ~alpine/devel

Hi!

I am working on upgrading python to 3.12 and rebuilding all the
relevant packages.

I have currently done approx 520 packages, and still have 1180+ in only
community. testing comes in addition. There is no chance that I will be
able to finish this in time for the upcoming Alpine 3.20 release. I
need to start set up the 3.20 builders in a week.

So I need help from the package maintainers to pull this off.

How can package maintainers help?

Looks like this was unintentionally disabled when upgrading to 6.6
kernel. I will fix this.

yes

no. But I think it may make sense to add support for it. The installer
is text based and I assume it would work fairly well with a screen
reader.
