Request to Update password-cli
« on: June 30, 2023, 10:33:37 AM »
Hello,

I'm packaging passwordmaker-cli for Debian [1] (which is also used by its derivates [2])

Now the project decided to get rid of the obsolete pcre-library [3], which will result in the removal of passwordmaker-cli from the distribution with the next major release.

So my question is if you consider to update passwordmaker-cli to use pcre2.  [4]

If you consider to do an update, I'd also like to ask to include these patches [5] and check if it is possible to also replace the discontinued tinyxml[6] with the actively developed tinyxml2 [7]

Finally the current archive for PWM-cli contains things that are not needed to build the package like dll's, executables and 3rdparty-software, which we (as in Debian) have to delete to satisfy our Debian Free Software Guideline [8]. It would be nice if that could be fixed too.

Yes, that's a lot, if you have questions, remarks regarding the package, just ping me. I'm happy to help there, but i don't have the skills to fix the things i mentioned above.


thank you,

In the meantime Yavor Doganov <[email protected]> has provided a patch at https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=1000005#20

(i'd attach it here, but the forum provides an "internal errror" then.
