<mark_weaver>For glib-networking update to version 2.29.92, it says "Fixed a problem when linking against GNUTLS 3.0, where connections would sometimes return the error "The TLS connection was non-properly terminated". (bgo#659233)"
<mark_weaver>I'm not sure what bug tracking system that bug number is in.
<civodul>here's a plan: we ignore it in Guix for now, and i change the GnuTLS session-record port code to ignore it
<civodul>because what matters is that the report returns the EOF object
<mark_weaver>I'm not sure what code you're talking about. If you mean to ignore the error in the general-purpose guile-gnutls code, that makes me nervous.
<mark_weaver>though I confess I don't fully understand the issues.
<mark_weaver>if you mean to ignore it only for purpose of downloads, then I guess that's fine, since the SHAsum will be checked anyway.
<mark_weaver>I think it's become fairly clear that Postel's idea that one should be permissive in what one accepts has turned out to be a bad idea. It tends to result in widespread violations of the standards, as happened in the world wide web.
