#### Policy on libsystemd0 Both the amprolla updates and new rsyslog packages above made me realise that we might require greater clarity in our policy on libsystemd0. There was already a short paragraph on this in the Maintainer's Guide. Perhaps this should be expanded and clarified? My suggested starting point in branch wip/leepen/libsystemd0: https://git.devuan.org/devuan/documentation/src/commit/97beeb1167cf675c90a3fe79a1370ed2510e2b74/maintainers/PackagingGuide.md#user-content-position-on-libsystemd0-and-systemd-unit-files * (mason) will work with LeePen on some wording Please note, I am not trying to dictate what the policy should be, just give us a starting point to agree a wording before the publication: * (mason) Are we suggesting that we don't want packages forked to drop libsystemd0, or just that we only insist on forking things with deeper dependencies? The wording seems like it wants to change.
#### Chimaera themes * golinux has created new images and CSS, with the new Chimaera colors. * The new CSS has been tested and works great (a text alignment issue was also fixed in the process). * Todo: * [ ] Create a new Chimaera git branch to store the new images and CSS files. This branch will be merged when Chimaera is officially released. * (gl) That should probably be created in your account space. Then merge from there to beta as the chimaera release approaches. * Aye. * [ ] Meanwhile, rename a couple of images to more generic filenames: * `devuan-logo-cbar.png` -> `devuan-logo.png` * `rounded-cbar-square.png` -> `rounded-square.png`
#### Tito's migration scripts * In last week's meeting notes rrq had the following note: * "post announcement to test buster to beowulf migration instructions. tito's migration script? When it's sorted" * to which Tito responded on the devuan-dev mailing list: * "There was no feedback about the script and no issues reported. I have no more live boxes to test and vm's are a little boring after a while. I'm waiting for next Debian release for a new version when high season is over." * **Question:** Does anyone know the status of these scripts, and any testing that's been done? Just wondering if perhaps they should be mentioned on the web site, or is it too soon? * (gl) There was a long thread on dng at the time the script was introduced. * (gl) Other options need to be added to the www documentation with appropriate disclaimers.
### Jaromil * problem upgrading grub in Beowulf, left it unusable because of the infamous bug: `error: symbol 'grub_register_command_lockdown' not found` well visible over debian bugs, ubuntu and mint fora * (mason) I hit a different one and resolved it with a fresh grub install, but it'd be worth understanding it more deeply * problem with dev1fanboy current guide to upgrade which is only targeted to desktop on reboot it breaks any server that is headless and remote: ssh doesn't starts * dev1fanboy has disappeared. the broken instruction https://www.devuan.org/os/documentation/dev1fanboy/en/buster-to-beowulf.html
