apt-0.5.15lorg2-alt74 built by Ivan Zakharyaschev
Debian's Advanced Packaging Tool with RPM support
Dec. 4, 2021 Ivan Zakharyaschev:
- Implemented generic callback system for packagekit, allowing to show progress
  during offline-update to user. (Thx Oleg Solovyov mcpain@)
synaptic-0.58-alt28 built by Ivan Zakharyaschev
Graphical front-end for APT
Dec. 8, 2021 Ivan Zakharyaschev:
- Adapted to the new API with custom callbacks introduced
  in libapt-0.5.15lorg2-alt74. (Surprisingly, the call that had to be adapted
  is a method "private" to the apt library used here by means of a hack;
  so libapt shouldn't really bother to provide a compatibility method.)
packagekit-1.2.4-alt3 built by Ivan Zakharyaschev
Package management service
Dec. 2, 2021 Oleg Solovyov:
- Show actual update percentage during offline update
apt-indicator-0.3.20-alt2 rebuild by Ivan Zakharyaschev

apt-repo-tools-0.8.0-alt1 rebuild by Ivan Zakharyaschev
Utilities to create APT repositories
aptitude-0.4.5-alt13 rebuild by Ivan Zakharyaschev
Terminal-based apt frontend
perl-AptPkg-0.1.26-alt6 rebuild by Ivan Zakharyaschev
Perl interface to libapt-pkg
#289181 sent by by Ivan Zakharyaschev Nov 10, 2021, 07:18 PM Message: support_blake2b_or_md5
apt-0.5.15lorg2-alt73 built by Ivan Zakharyaschev
Debian's Advanced Packaging Tool with RPM support
Oct. 29, 2021 Ivan Zakharyaschev:
- (tests) Report if a test (marked XFAIL) uneXpectedly passes (XPASS).
- (tests) Run them not in %check, but in *-checkinstall subpkgs. (To break
  build-dep cycle with apt-repo-tools, whose features are required by the tests,
  but which needs to be recompiled to be linked with libapt.)
- (tests) Done more extensive testing of how apt works with "rpm" repos
  via any of the file, http(s), cdrom methods; including:
  + re-fetching if the saved complete or partial pkglist indices are corrupt
    (see https://bugzilla.altlinux.org/show_bug.cgi?id=40746#c9 );
  + the verification of the checksums of pkglist indices. (The verification
    is tested in two ways:
    * The verification of the checksum of a specific type is tested by faking
      it in the meta-data: for MD5, SHA1, SHA256, BLAKE2b and just the size.
    * Simply testing that a faked pkglist file of the same size is rejected--no
      matter which hashing algorithm is used.)
  + the verification of the checksums of rpm archives. (The verification
    is tested in two ways:
    * The verification of the checksum of a specific type is tested by faking
      it in the meta-data: for MD5, SHA1, SHA256, BLAKE2b.
    * Simply testing that a faked rpm file of the same size is rejected--no
      matter which hashing algorithm is used.)
- (source code; ABI) Reverted a lot of inessential optimizations
  from 0.5.15lorg2-alt72.
- (source code; ABI) Got rid of virtual methods with default parameters
  (because they are confusing for the programmer).
- (source code; ABI) Backported some pieces of the support for the multiplicity
  of checksum (and compression) types from apt-rpm (thx imz@):
  + the type of the compression for "pkglist" indices;
  + the type of the checksum for "pkglist" indices;
  + the type of the checksum for "rpm" archives.
- Added blake2b hash support (thx glebfm@).
- Changed file and copy download methods to always compute checksums
  (thx glebfm@).
apt-repo-tools-0.8.0-alt1 built by Ivan Zakharyaschev
Utilities to create APT repositories
Oct. 28, 2021 Gleb Fotengauer-Malinovskiy:
- Switched to librpm crypto API instead of libapt.
- Added support and enabled blake2b hash by default.
- genbasedir: add --disable-hash-caching option to disable hashsum caching.
