Finally, for most* (see below) packages that are available in the elementary-stable COPR repository, nightly builds builds of their respective trunk / master branches are now available in the elementary-nightly COPR repository, too.
As those builds really are nightly builds (well, in fact, hourly, as long as my PC is running), do expect that they might be broken (at least some of the time).
vala compiler from the
0.34 branch (with
0.34.2 available in fedora 25
right now) currently contains a bug (see
results in invalid
.vapi files being generated during package builds /
FIXME recently added to the
vala code in
explains the problem in more detail. Basically, functions returning fixed-size
arrays are not handled correctly.
This bug is starting to affect packages in the fedora 25 repositories (for
libnm-util). As a result of this,
cannot be built at the moment due to a type mismatch (this affects stable
and nightly builds).
Other packages might start to be affected by this bug as soon as more fedora
packages that generate
.vapi files during their builds are rebuilt with
vala 0.34.x, so I am hoping for a fix to that issue soon.
EDIT: The linked commit from the
vala git Repository does indeed contain the
fix for the issue, as the developer has pointed out to me. Obviously, it will
still take some time until it works its way into the next stable vala release
and the fedora repositories, though.
