[bug#47597] [PATCH 0/3] Add SourceForge updater and lint warnings

From: Ludovic Courtès
Subject: [bug#47597] [PATCH 0/3] Add SourceForge updater and lint warnings
Date: Sun, 4 Apr 2021 22:58:35 +0200


These patches add a ‘sourceforge’ updater.  Initially I tried
implementing it in terms of ‘latest-html-release’ but that doesn’t
work because of the peculiar URL scheme that SF uses, with “/download”
appended to otherwise nice-looking URLs.

Instead, this one looks at the /latest URL supported by SourceForge.
It’s less efficient than ‘generic-html’ for instance because there’s
no caching and there’s up to three additional HEAD requests performed
to find if there are detached signatures.

The last patch has ‘guix lint -c refresh’ emit warnings when a package
lacks an updater or when its updater doesn’t work.  This should help us
find out which updaters need to be improved or implemented.

Feedback welcome!


Ludovic Courtès (3):
  gnu-maintenance: Add 'sourceforge' updater.
  upstream: 'package-latest-release' tries all the matching updaters.
  lint: refresh: Warn about missing or dysfunctional updaters.
