I don't think it actually broke anything that's in -current, did it?

Precisely NOT!

BTW, you remember that Firefox which load the CPU, which I reported in the other thread?

The Firefox calmed down after you updated it in the last pull. Must had to be some obscure bug of it.

I'm not sure if you're agreeing or disagreeing for my comment. I was wondering something - do you expect a stable ABI for -current, Darth?

Of course that I do not expect a stable ABI from -current. And my post was an agreement that nothing was broken in -current, as its own components. Sorry for my English!

BTW, in my own case, your new ICU sent the LibreOffice and Pale Moon to the second life, but I know well that I have to wait for Eric to do his thing, that's why I do not commented about.

Also, I seen that he's aware that they are broken.

The binary sbo version of LibreOffice runs fine.

Yeah, I know, but I trust the Nuclear Dutch about his abilities to react fast to this issues.

EDIT: He already released the updated builds.

mv /var/cache/packages /var/cache/packages$(date +%Y%m%d)
If the local archive starts to get too large, then I run my (easy but not elegant) script to remove all archived packages with more than two newer versions.
Code:
#!/bin/sh

# Script to clean up /var/cache/packages* archive

# Remove any old files
rm /tmp/list*

# Get a list of *.t?z archive files
find /var/cache -name "*.t?z" > /tmp/list1

# Get a list of package names without build, arch, version
cat /tmp/list1 | rev | cut -d"/" -f1 | cut -d"-" -f4- | rev > /tmp/list2

# Get a list of dates
cat /tmp/list1 | cut -d"/" -f4 | sed "s/packages//" > /tmp/list3

# Paste the lists together
paste /tmp/list1 /tmp/list2 /tmp/list3 > /tmp/list4

# Sort the list by package name then date(reverse order)
sort --key=2,3r /tmp/list4 > /tmp/list5

# Get a list of packages with 2 later versions
awk '++dups[$2] > 2' /tmp/list5 > /tmp/list6

# Cut the first column from the list
cut -f1 /tmp/list6 > /tmp/list7

# Delete the older files
while read line; do
  rm "$line"{,.asc}
 done < /tmp/list7



Nice,



thanks for the code
