Recently I started seeing this message in the production logs for FreshPorts: What code produces that message? GitHub makes searching for that message easy. I found it here: What port has this issue? Searching the webserver logs, I find: Always be able to reproduce the issue If I cannot reproduce the issue myself, I cannot […]

The original intent was to use git tag -l freshports/$refname to detect if a tag exists. The problem there, it always returns 0. [dan@mydev:/var/db/ingress/repos/ports] $ git tag -l | head 10-eol 4-eol 5-eol 6-eol 7-eol […]

When upgrading packages on a FreshPorts ingress node (that is usually a jail which processes incoming commits and loads them into the database), I believe there is a possibility of interrupting commit processing. It’s a race condition between pkg removing a file and that file being required by the commit processing. This post serves to […]
