Will look at this today.

1.2.1 is now in cauldron, and has been submitted to updates_testing for 6:

URL: svn+ssh://svn.mageia.org/svn/packages/updates/6/qtpass
Commit: 1199795 | buchan | New version 1.2.1 Fixes #22398 
Package submitted!

I have done basic testing of normal functionality on a build from the checkout built on my local machine running Mageia 6, and everything seems to work as well as (or better than) before.

Backporting the patches in question seemed to be a bit excessive for a leaf package, where one or two other issues were also addressed, e.g. password leaking (to stdout): https://github.com/IJHack/QtPass/issues/334

Ah, this is another package getting screwed by the in-progress qt/plasma update

If you want to get it to work now, a proper set of buildrequires/conflicts should force the use of stuff not in testing

Comment 6 Buchan Milne 2018-02-12 20:12:43 CET
If the Qt maintainer is going to push changes which result in ABI conflicts to updates_testing, there should be useful macros provided to ensure ABI compatibility.

Or, we need to ensure that updates go through the entire QA process in serial with any build deps.

Otherwise, we're going to be endlessly chasing artefacts of a poor process.

(If this *really* is the only option, and we want qtpass to go out sooner than the Qt update can go out, I can do the work, but it seems very counter-productive).
Comment 7 David Walser 2018-02-12 23:24:19 CET
I agree with Buchan.  This is one of the major shortcomings of our build system.  It would have been much better if the Qt and Plasma update could have been done in its own repository.  Hopefully we can get the Qt update out sooner rather than later, as it is holding up other updates besides just this one.  I would say let's just wait for now.
