Thu Feb 18 19:29:30 UTC 2021 and 20:47:35 UTC 2021: Strange ChangeLog?


Hi,

I'm disturbed about 2 things in the last ChangeLog in current/

1. In "Thu Feb 18 19:29:30 UTC 2021" there is: xap/mozilla-firefox-78.7.1esr-x86_64-2.txz: Rebuilt.
And in "Thu Feb 18 20:47:35 UTC 2021" there is: xap/mozilla-firefox-78.7.1esr-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
The tag has been downgraded and version has not been upgraded. Can you explain that please?
Maybe Pat just restored the old firefox built and copy/paste the old ChangeLog?

2. "ap/mariadb-10.5.9-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.": I don't see any official tarball or git tag/release of this new version. Nothing on mariadb website. I know tarballs can be generate late, but no tag at all. Did I miss anything?

1: If you browse the changelog, you'll find that Pat always "upgrade" even if the package in question is a "downgrade", i.e. he reverts to an older version. Nothing new.
2: https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb-1059-release-notes/ but yes, the tarball seems to be hidden somewhere.
You can find it here, though: http://slackware.uk/slackware/slackw...ce/ap/mariadb/

They're always "minus" tags, because it's just a dash to separate the different portions of a Slackware package PRGNAM-VERSION-ARCH-BUILD (sorry if you understood this and it was just a misunderstanding due to a language barrier).

For 3rd-party packages, there is usually a tag added to the end of the BUILD, like BUILD_TAG, but official Slackware packages don't have a tag.

In this case, Pat reverted to the previous package without rebuilding it, so the BUILD number went from 2 to 1 and he just reuploaded the old package. This does not happen often as when he reverts to older packages, he'll usually rebuild them, but since the software stack in Slackware is causing the issue, he just stuck with the old package.

Sorry bassmadrigal, my english is not very good, I didn't mean "minus" but "lower", because the package build number is lower than before.
Anyway, thanks for your clarification.
