<mark_weaver>he also missed MIG, Mach, and Hurd, which mentioned in their release announcements a problem with uploading: "As soon as upload issues have been resolved, it may be downloaded from <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnumach/>"
<civodul>but apparently the upload dates from Oct. 1st, which may have been slightly too late
<civodul>BTW, strictly speaking, we still miss a glibc tarball if we want to build the Hurd
<youlysse`>I'm assuming it's just me, but is the build server down? For everything, it just keeps saying the "sever is unresponsive". :^/
<civodul>that shouldn't affect substitutions, though
<youlysse`>civodul: Maybe it's just my new install, though this was the first time I was ever able to pass the check (everyother time it'd fail on testing download) -- I decided on switching to trisquel, last-night.
<civodul>when you have test failures, please report them to firstname.lastname@example.org
<civodul>it's usually a sign that something's wrong
<youlysse`>civodul: Noted; That being said, again, this is the first-time I haven't had an issue here, and it seems to be where I'm having "the" issue.
<handheldCar>I might like to contribute a Conkeror package. Where would I start?
<youlysse`>handheldCar: In-packaging in-general, or relative to Conkeror?
<civodul>handheldCar: Conkeror depends on Xulrunner, so that's where you would start
<civodul>handheldCar: Andreas has tried to package GNU IceCat (which provides xulrunner), so you might want to check with him the current status
<civodul>i would recommend an easier package to get started, though
<youlysse`>civodul: On my orginal patch, for gl.scm -- checking out the mailing list, there was a complaint that it was building the .go in the top-level directory of the guix folder... running it, I'm not having any such problem?
<civodul>youlysse`: no, there was a complaint that the patch added gl.scm in the top-level dir, AIUI
<civodul>so if that is fixed, now is the time to re-post :-)
<youlysse`>I'll try generating a patch again -- but from what I can see, it looks as-if it should've placed it in /gnu/packages/ to start. :^P
