Request package updates for Poppler, Subversion and Git

Kptain
Hi all,

I don't know who are the maintainer(s),
but it would be great if these packages could be updated:

 - latest versions are:
     
    . Git  2.24.1
    . Subversion 1.13.0
    . Poppler  0.83


It'd be great if it could be refreshed in Cygwin.

Thanks in advance,

Stephan

the maintainer is reported on the package summary:
https://cygwin.com/packages/summary/subversion.html
For subversion David was looking for someone to adopt it

https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-apps/2019-11/msg00008.html

may be you are interested ? See for detail
https://cygwin.com/packaging-contributors-guide.html

The other two are maintained by Yaakov, that seems at the moment
a bit busy with other activities.

Regards
Marco

Acknowledged for Git. I'll try and get a new release out before the new year.

Keep in mind you will then have to re-do it just after the new year for
the Perl update.

Not necessarily. I know people have disagreed with this in the past, but I have
looked at this again and it seems that not all distros require Perl with a Git
install. For example Fedora "git-core" only requires:

    Requires:       less
    Requires:       openssh-clients
    Requires:       zlib >= 1.2

https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/git/sources/spec

Some notable scripts would not work, like "git add --interactive", but Cygwin
could have a "git" and "git-core" to deal with that. Personally I have installed
Git without Perl for some years without issue.

Just realised I hadn't replied to this, sorry!

On the apps list, on the topic of package updates for the Perl switch, you said

I'd therefore been assuming that I didn't need to worry about syncing
a Git release with the Perl update; have I misunderstood what's going
on here?

Adam

PS: I am once again battling a bunch of test failures, as I prefer to
not release a Git build with undiagnosed failures in the test suite
when it's the official Cygwin distribution. I'm slowly working my way
through the problems, but there is ongoing progress on getting a new
release out.

I haven't looked at the new Git version in detail, but it's probably the
still true, given that it loses some more dependencies on Perl with each
release rather than picking up new ones.  What I was getting at with
that remark is that the existing Git doesn't stop working when updating
Perl, not how a future version (which I haven't yet seen) behaves.  Also
as discussed before it would really be better if the packaging was done
without these nested Perl modules since it they can used as an interface
to Git which the Perl as installed doesn't know about since it isn't in
the usual search path.


Regards,
Achim.

Kptain

Thanks for your help.

It is probably better to wait for next perl 5.30.1 release that should be
available soon.

Next package that I am not able to build by myself concerns poppler package
as lot of library dependencies are not resolved.
