Let's hope a permanent maintainer steps forward.

Has Mikael Urankar indicated that he plans to return the port to the pool?

Having a web browser is more important to have some electron app that could just been a tab in a browser.
Signal does not run in a browser tab.

If the build is blocked 1 week because of electron app, for sure they have to restrict the number of version to build.
What are you even trying to say here? It's been much longer than one week, and there is no current version being built as a result of the blacklisting of Electron.

You should ask him that question, but even if he wanted to, he can't because a critical dependency is blacklisted.
 
What are you even trying to say here? It's been much longer than one week, and there is no current version being built as a result of the blacklisting of Electron.
1715524632845.png

From an old run, you can see that there is some issue with the time to build electron on some of the cluster: 18h + 18h+ 19h is a lot of building time.
Sure it take a little more time for chromium, but there is only two of them.

If the webengine part of chromium, ungoogled-chromium, electron*, qt5-qt6 webengine were extracted and merged in one port (lets do it for webrtc part too while here), then we could significantly reduce the build time. But this of course would require a lot of work and coordination with the upstream project.

As a reference, the link of the build in the screenshot: https://pkg-status.freebsd.org/beefy16/build.html?mastername=132amd64-default&build=da42697af50c
 
… blacklisting of Electron.

For clarity (partly for the benefit of newcomers to this topic, who might not read the previous three pages):
  • one version of Electron is packaged, not blacklisted.
Here,

Code:
% pkg search electron
electron25-25.9.8_3            Build cross-platform desktop apps with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS
electron28-28.3.1              Build cross-platform desktop apps with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS
% pkg search -r FreeBSD-ports electron
electron25-25.9.8_3            Build cross-platform desktop apps with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS
% uname -KU
1500018 1500018

For someone who claims to be up to speed on the matter, I'm surprised to have to provide you with this link which explains why Electron 25 is not useful in this case:

 
I've committed net-im/signal-desktop


For security-sensitive software such as this, nobody should trust anyone they don't know.

I am inclined to trust the maintainer.

Not blind trust, but 1,367 commits across the trees, over a period of more than four years, is a respectable track record.

HTH, and thanks again, acheron

Please, can you explain the surprise?

You did not have to provide the link to the report, today.

Yesterday, on page two three, I thanked the developer and pointed out that I had:
  • read it.
Please provide the link to the report again, tomorrow.

Thanks, and in the meantime I'll take a TARDIS back to September 2023 where I can prevent myself from subscribing so that things can become closer to your version of reality.
Signal 7 requires a newer version of Electron than v25, as pointed out by the maintainer here and here.

You pointing out that things are supposed to be fine because Electron 25 is available on the builder is, thus, 100.0% irrelevant given the thread we are in.

QED.

I am going to unsub from this thread and stop replying now.
 
If I read this correctly, the solutions provided by FreeBSD maintainers are:
  • Every electron consumer upgrade in lockstep. Probably way too complex due to varying difficulty of keeping upstream updated or one port moving faster than the others, and in Signal's case, refusing to work with older versions. Maintainer wishes for upstream to coordinate are pipe dreams...
  • Buy more build hardware
How do the maintainers choose which port(s) gets kicked out when the electron version gets selected?
 
Crivens thanks, I made some edits.

Generally: I'll appreciate people taking care to not misrepresent other people's writing.

Bug 270565 is the root cause, …

270565 (pictured at <https://forums.freebsd.org/posts/654656>) began with reference to vscode and became a package infrastructure report.

In this topic I addressed three key people:

Alain De Vos, tOsYZYny, rmomota, and others, wrote about vscode.

… Electron 25 … 100.0% irrelevant given the thread we are in. …

270565 affects multiple ports, including vscode.

HTH

Given so many users of a popular, highly desirable application:
  • why does only one person in The FreeBSD Forums show gratitude, to the maintainer of the port, for providing a package for 64-bit x86?
Re: <https://www.freebsd.org/platforms/>, I can't imagine a majority of users on something other than amd64.

Let's charitably assume that the vast majority of users here do, already, have a working installation of the app (do not yet need what's offered by acheron).
