Therefore, all the commits between the introduction of harfbuzz with
the old sha256 (commit 2da9b81837fd1e6f08a10952784d3358be982855) and
the commit updating to the new sha256 should be broken.
Roughly speaking, all the commits between April, 7th and the May, 4th;
i.e., 1100+ commits, isn't it?


Well, this ask an interesting question: how Guix can fallback when
upstream is doing wrong?


Considering this 'harbuzz' issue, is it possible to rebuild the old
tarball and push it to SoftWare Heritage? Then when a sha mismatch
happens, fallback and try to fetch it from SWH?


WDYT?

Cheers,
simon

The problem here is really that we fall back to content-addressed
mirrors instead of using them directly:


The file itself is still available on our machines though, and you can
get it with:

guix download -o harfbuzz-2.4.0.tar.bz2 \

guix download file://$PWD/harfbuzz-2.4.0.tar.bz2

After that, re-running ‘guix time-machine’ should work.

Using ci.guix.gnu.org for substitutes should have the same effect.

HTH,
Ludo’.

Thank you for the pointer. Good to see that the problem is almost addressed.
I will try to understand the discussion and see what is the status of
the proposed patch.

It is an half cooked solution because the Guix project cannot archive
all; for example in term of store resources.

The content-addressed mirror should be SWH, IMHO.

Well, once sources.json will be up, it should be almost done for the future.
But we still need to push all the correct sources that are on
ci.guix.gnu.org; at least all the url based source of package.

Do you have suggestion for a plan?

Thank you. This should fix the harfbuzz mismatch issue. Cool! :-)

Hum? I thought that I used ci.guix.gnu.org as substitutes... soI need to check.

Given the natute (AFAIU) of this issue is the very same of the bug you
mention, shouldn't this bug be merged (forcemerged?) whith #28659?

If you agree and have no time, I can try doing this

Does make it sense to make this workaround more general and add this as
a Cookbook or blog entry? If the patch you propose in #28659 solve any
issue and is ready to be merget of course it's not worth the effort

[...]

Thanks! Gio'

Maybe I miss a point, but the file we need is the old one, not the new
one, i.e., the one with the expected hash
1mpah6kwqid1kxsj4rwqsniivqbrx231j65v51yncx6s0dch0dch. And I should do
wrong but ci.guix.gnu.org does not have this file -- otherwise it will
find it because of substitutes mechanism.

AFAIU, there is 2 issues:
1. how to do with the particular case of harfbuzz -- bug#39575
2. how to solve the general case of unreliable sources -- bug#28659

So instead of merging the bugs (case 2.), I would like to solve 1.,
mark it as done and report to bug#28659. It will ease to follow
because the thread in bug#28659 is already heavy. :-)



All the best,
simon

I checked on a bunch of machines and couldn’t find it.

Everyone, please check whether you have
/gnu/store/b4cdp9sp44848348lrpzbfafhmjqf8nr-harfbuzz-2.4.0.tar.bz2 and
so share!

Thanks, you saved us!

Now we have it here:


I’ve also registered a GC root.

Anyway, everything will be so much better when SWH archives tarballs!

What about


(The strange thing being here, that snapshot.debian.org does not provide
a copy of the the in-place rewritten upstream tarball, either on
2019-05-06 or later.)

So, this now becomes the recipe

guix download $PWD/harfbuzz-2.4.0.tar.bz2
guix time-machine --commit=56e95d54d209c2428f970d65d9b27ae4168449ad --no-offload -- help

that i'm trying now, and for now it looks fine (lots of stuff to build,
i'll report success or failure when it's done).

It seems, however, that for offload builds to work the guix download
needs to be repeated on the offload build farm machines too?

Wait, what happened here; you finally proposed a patch two years ago and
nothing happened/we all forgot to follow up?

I cannot determine if possibly we were hoping to "wait" for the guile
build daemon?

No, I don’t think so, because the head node copies all the inputs to
build machines before it actually offloads the build.

I think we forgot, indeed.

One thing I don’t quite like about the patch is the fact that ‘guix
substitutes’ connects to the daemon in ‘content-addressed-item?’.

Also, one could argue that we’d steer users towards downloading from our
server, which could be a privacy concern (probably not a strong argument
since one can easily change the substitute URLs.)

Thoughts?

But how do you determine the "date", i.e., this reference '20190406T212022Z' ?

Could it be automated?

The future will be better. :-)
Even some details need to be discussed: frequency of source.json
generation, frequency of the SWH crawler ingest it, etc.

How could all the archives living in ci.guix.gnu.org be sent to SWH?
Because IMHO the of Berlin (or other) is to archive the world but to
build it. :-)

You'd take the timestamp immediately preceding your desired (Guix)
commit's date, or something like that. The fact that git commit
dates aren't linear shouldn't hurt here.

Not without parsing HTML to get the valid timestamps:

You may not need to parse the html fully if the part you need is
isolatable into delimited scopes that you can successively narrow.

For example, I while back I wanted a command I could type to get
the url of the latest linux kernel at kernel.org:

stable-kernel.scm -h
Toggle snippet (7 lines)
Usage: stable-kernel-scm [ -h ]
-h for this message
(without args):
go to https://www.kernel.org/ to wget page,
extract URL of latest stable release tarball
and write that URL to stdout.
(oops, I see I din't use $0 in the usage text -- should be .scm, not -scm)

I offer it below [1], with the thought that you could probably
modify (not to mention improve :-) it to get the timestamps you want.
Especially if you could get them to make the narrow context unique enough
that it's delimiters can delimit it in one shot.

The page at kernel.org is apparently stable enough that this still works,
but YMMV until the snapshot page is similarly stable. (You could ask
them to make it easy :)

I mean that by default, someone who’s disabled substitutes (presumably
out of security or privacy concerns) would find themself downloading
source code from ci.guix.gnu.org instead of various upstream sites.

You assume that Debian packs packages as fast as Guix, I mean on the
same schedule which is a strong assumption IMHO.
For example, if it was the contrary and the "new" release of harfbuzz
2.4.0 were missing, then would Debian be helpful?

I do not see the difference between mirroring and traveling back in
time with missing upstream sources.
And because it is content-addressed, it seems even more secure than
downloading from a upstream URL, IMHO.
If one trusts Guix, then an attacker needs to corrupt in the same time
the Guix history and Berlin (and/or any other farm).
If one does not trust Guix, why does they use the recipe coming from
Guix? To be precise, this person has to check all the recipes of all
the dependencies.

Well, I do not see a security concern because we are talking about
serving the sources.
It is another story when the substitutes serve the results of the
build (binaries); because one does not have any strong guarantee that
the substitute serves the expected binaries.

By privacy concern, do you mean that Guix could collect who downloads
what; in a central fashion? Which is not the case when one downloads
from several distributed upstream sources. Right?
Well, I am not convinced because the case of missing upstream source
is rare. And it is easy to protect against such collecting data
process.
In paranoid mode, traveling back in time is becoming difficult because
of the reliability of the sources; I mean if the sources were
reliable, SWH would not exist. ;-) The solution should be an IPFS /
GNUnet / full distributed archive... which is not ready... yet! :-)


Well, maybe for the TODO list of the time-machine: add an option to
allow substitutes *only* for the sources (substitutes meaning
ci.guix.gnu.org and/or SWH). If this option does not exist yet. ;-)

simon

We could first try
mirror://debian/pool/main/harfbuzz/harfbuzz_2.4.0.orig.tar.bz2

2.4.0-1 and then parse the website for harfbuzz_2.4.0.orig.tar.bz2. Or
for just 'orig.tar'

Exactly. But like I wrote above, I don’t think it’s a strong argument.

What remains is the issue with ‘content-addressed-item?’, then.

Indeed I do! :-D

Efraim's solution sounds reasonable.

I agree and the big picture depends on the audience.
Scientific communities would be fine with centralized archives such as
SWH. And only centralized archives IMHO can provide a reliable "long
term" support which is the point for that communities. (Quote because
not clearly defined what it is. :-))
Other communities would prefer distributed archive such as IPFS or
GNUnet but 1. it still needs some work and 2. the "long term" is not
guarantee by nature, IMHO. But it is probably not an issue for that
communities.

I agree.
The bridge with SWH is in good shape, IMHO.
And the pending IPFS patch would deserve more love. :-) Maybe soon...

For me, pythohn-minimal fails to build

Hi,

Some follow ups.


For me, now, the command

> > $ guix time-machine \

does not fail anymore at the Guile step:

Toggle snippet (5 lines)
building /gnu/store/gglbrs8j0iq8ygh55inwfvpwb5z2x254-guile-2.2.4.drv...
- 'check' phasebuilder for
`/gnu/store/gglbrs8j0iq8ygh55inwfvpwb5z2x254-guile-2.2.4.drv' failed

because it was about "FAIL: test-out-of-memory".


Well, now, I am failing at the Python 3.7.3 step too:

However, the python error seems about TLS:

It seems to be timing-sensitive, is it deterministic?

One lesson here is that we should keep substitutes for a longer amount
of time—we actually have a lot of storage space on berlin so we should
investigate what happened. (The NixOS folks currently keep substitutes
forever but they found it’s starting to be expensive…)

Thanks,
Ludo’.
