2019-07-16Apt.update: Pass --allow-releaseinfo-change when updating Unstable or TestingJoey Hess
So that code name changes that happen in those suites during a stable release don't prevent updating the rolling suites.

The suite for stable releases from bullseye on will be suffixed with "-security". Only 3 past stable releases continue to use the old unsuffixed name.
2019-07-10Apt: Debian has changed the name of the suite for testing security updates ↵Joey Hess
from testing to testing-security. The testing-security suite appeared 4 days ago. I don't know where this change is documented; wish I had known about it before the stable release, as now stable has a propellor that doesn't work with testing.

2019-07-01fix build with ghc 8.0.1Joey Hess
Something in commit 14f6ae30809d8bbdb10b91cc59757e865a365df8 ghc 8.0.1 in a few cases unable to infer types when ensureProperty or tightenTargets is used. Newer versions of ghc, including 8.4.4 were able to infer these types. Perhaps it tries harder, or an inference bug was fixed. Seemed best to work around the problem to keep supporting ghc 8.0.1 and the current Debian stable. Since only 3 uses out of hundreds in propellor were affected, it's pretty unlikely it will affect user's properties, but I mentioned in in the changelog anyway. Hopefully a new Debian release will soon mean I no longer need to support 8.0.1, but the code changes also generally made it clearer and easier to read. And, I made custom type errors suggesting adding annotations to help any user who does encounter it. (Included in commit de21ef26861db458b0dfb0212cf501f9f8ed459b; may also help with other cases than an old ghc.)
2019-07-01optionally use type-errors to detect stucknessJoey Hess
Use the type-errors library to detect when the type checker gets stuck unable to reduce type-level operations on MetaTypes, and avoid displaying massive error messages in such a case. But, since type-errors is a new library not available in eg Debian yet, added a WithTypeErrors build flag. When the library is not available, cabal will automatically disable that build flag, and it will build without the type-errors library. This is most often used when combining properties of different types. If the MetaTypes don't have an OS in common, the error message used to be "Property " followed by pages of MetaTypes operations. Now it looks like this: • Cannot combine Properties: Property <unknown> Property HasInfo + Debian + Buntish + ArchLinux + FreeBSD (Property <unknown> is often due to a partially applied Property constructor, or due to passing the wrong type to a Property constructor.) Also it's used in ensureProperty to detect a case where the outer MetaTypes need to be inferred in order to check if the inner MetaTypes match, but the type checker is unable to infer it: • ensureProperty outer Property type is not able to be inferred here. Consider adding a type annotation. • When checking the inferred type writeConfig :: forall (outer :: [Propellor.Types.MetaTypes.MetaType]) t. And it's used in tightenTargets to detect when ghc is unable to infer the desired type of Property: • Unable to infer desired Property type in this use of tightenTargets. Consider adding a type annotation. • When checking the inferred type mk :: forall (tightened :: [Propellor.Types.MetaTypes.MetaType]).
2019-07-01custom type error messagesJoey Hess
* Avoid displaying an excessive amount of type error messages when many properties have been combined in a props list. * Added custom type error messages when Properties don't combine due to conflicting metatypes. * Added custom type error messages for ensureProperty and tightenTargets. * ensureProperty: The constraints have been simplified to EnsurePropertyAllowed. (API change) * ensureProperty: The contraints have been simplified to TightenTargetsAllowed. (API change) * CheckCombinable generates a Bool.

2019-04-08change from inChroot to granular container capabilities infoJoey Hess
* Removed inChroot, instead use hasContainerCapability FilesystemContained. (API change) * Hostname: Properties that used to not do anything in a systemd or docker container will now change the container's hostname, since it's namespaced. More container capabilities can easily be added later, to fine grain control what properties will run in different kinds of containers. This changed CmdLine's Read instance, which should be ok, because propellor inside the container is always updated at the same time as propellor outside, so when it chains into the chroot, it will know to expect the capability list. Docker was not setting InChroot before, but now sets both container capabilities, so chroot setting will also work in it. Note that, things that used to check inChroot before would not work in docker, but things that check FilesystemContained now will. It may be that some of those properties don't really work properly in docker. And, Grub.installed used to run grub-mkconfig in a docker container before, I doubt that made sense (was it even safe?); it doesn't do it now.

2019-04-08Fix bug in File.containsShellSettingJoey Hess
It replaced whole shell conffile content with the setting if the file did not previously contain a line setting the key to some value. InsertSection is passed the whole content of the file, which does not contain the section yet (here the section is a single line). Probably this was not noticed because it's common for a shell config file to contain default values, so the buggy InsertSection rarely gets used. This commit was sponsored by Ethan Aubin.

2019-04-01Added Utility.FileMode to the modules exported by Propellor.UtilitiesJoey Hess
Since File.mode uses FileMode, it seems it ought to be exported by propellor somewhere. I don't want to make propellor Property modules themselves export core data types though, so this is a compromise of dubious utility.

2019-01-18fix withOS type level bugJoey Hess
withOS had a type level bug that allowed ensureProperty to be used inside it with a Property that does not match the type of the withOS itself. Propellor.Property.Cron.runPropellor is a Property DebianLike; it was incorrectly a Property UnixLike before and that wrong type was hidden by the withOS bug.

2018-12-30Fix build with ghc 8.6.3Joey Hess
Ghc started complaining that the SingI constraints needs UndecidableInstances. I'm not clear why, when it used to work without that extension. UndecidableInstances were already used in MetaTypes..
2018-12-04libghc-stm-dev package won't be in new versions of debianJoey Hess
In Bootstrap, still try to install the package to support bootstrapping to old systems. If it's not available the bootstrapping will still succeed. The added apt-cache check is only to avoid apt complaining when asked to install a not available package. In debian/control, depend on ghc that includes stm, although propellor still supports being used with older versions of ghc Of course this control file is not being used for the package in debian any longer afaik, so something else will be done there.
