Hello!

(Cc=E2=80=99ing linux-libre@HIDDEN  This discussion is about Linux-libre
tarballs that vanish from ftp.gnu.org and fsfla.org:
<https://bugs.gnu.org/25638>.)

When building without substitutes, users should end up downloading:

  https://mirror.hydra.gnu.org/file/linux-libre-4.4.18-gnu.tar.xz/sha256/0k=
8k17in7dkjd9d8zg3i8l1ax466dba6bxw28flxizzyq8znljps

=E2=80=A6 which is still available.

> As a short-term fix could we upload the tarball for 4.4.18 to

>
> [1]: https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=3D14851

I=E2=80=99ll do that if there are no objections.

That said, if doesn=E2=80=99t seem right if the Linux-libre people remove t=
he
tarball from one directory at ftp.gnu.org and we add it in a different
directory the day after.  :-)

What do people think?

If disk space is a problem, I think it would be great if we could agree
on =E2=80=9Cpinning=E2=80=9D specific versions that should never vanish from
ftp.gnu.org.  That way we could ensure future reproducibility of
Linux-libre and GuixSD.

Thanks,
Ludo=E2=80=99.

Rohit Yadav reported in
<CAGKZdmYcHm0n7QeoyVTeXi59QeiXWgV-=OVRaz1ng-X+=cKUxw@HIDDEN>
that the linux libre tarballs for version 4.4.18 are no longer
available on any of the usual locations.  The next version that has a
full tarball and not just a compressed diff is version “4.4.24-gnu”.

The lack of this tarball doesn’t hurt most users because a substitute
for the tarball is available on hydra, but this doesn’t help when
building everything without substitutes.
