#167 wontfix debathena-lert-server binds only to localhost broder

Reported by broder, 15 years ago.


debathena-lert-server uses gethostbyname(uname().nodename) as the address to bind to. Unfortunately, on most Ubuntu systems, this works out to being instead of the actual IP address, thanks to Ubuntu's /etc/hosts hacks.

More fun, the krb4 code needs the destination address of incoming packets for the encryption of the reply, so we can't simply switch to listening on INADDR_ANY with no other changes.

I see two options:

  1. Change the code to use recvmsg instead of recvfrom, in which case you can get at the destination address of the incoming packets at the expense of substantially increased complexity. See for an example of how to do this.
  1. Tear out the krb4 code. The krb5 protocol was introduced in 2002, and it seems pretty unlikely that krb4 clients are still around. It's already nicely conditionalized out so that it'll build on squeeze.
#187 wontfix daupload errors if you tell it to go on in spite of files missing broder

Reported by broder, 15 years ago.


daupload tests for missing files, and prompts you for if you want to continue the upload. If you say yes, though, it will error when it hits the first missing files.

In my particular case, this resulted in the new source package being uploaded to all releases, but the binary packages for Gutsy, Hardy, and Intrepid weren't uploaded.

#189 wontfix greeter design improvements geofft

Reported by geofft, 15 years ago.


One of the things we keep talking about doing (and recently have started talking about doing later) is improving the background image of the greeter.

One big issue is that it's a raster image that stretches to the size of the screen and has artifacts when stretched. It'll probably look a little prettier if we either make a huge image that scales down, and a lot prettier if we replace it with an SVG which will scale nicely.

Another concept we've discussed is photographs of MIT. Lots of people have volunteered to take pretty pictures. We should ask them to take pretty pictures.
