Change to tracker configuration
3 months, 3 weeks
Stephen J. Turnbull
Hello, XEmacs users,
I'm finally bringing the issue tracker (tracker.xemacs.org) into the
21st century. The server is now configured to server over HTTPS,
using a Let's Encrypt certificate. Currently no SSL protocols are
configured, while TLS versions 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2 are accepted.
Over time I will try to upgrade the TLS version (ie, refuse TLS 1.0
and then TLS 1.1), as they are known to be weak. When I do, I'll make
a similar announcement.
Old URLs should continue to work, being redirected from HTTP on port
80 to HTTPS on port 443.
Feel free to report any problems to xemacs-beta(a)xemacs.org or to me
personally at stephen(a)xemacs.org.

21.5 build time segmentation fault
6 months, 1 week
I have received this bug report, https://bugs.gentoo.org/661592, which is about a segmentation violation during the build process of xemacs 21.5.34. I managed to recreate the problem once(!) on one of my machines but after that I have not been able to get it again, sigh, although I have tried it a like 20 times or more.
I can't see that we have had this issue on the build bot either which uses the same machine I got the error on and does a lot of builds!?
Aidan: Have you seen anything like this? (With a hope that some recent development you have done has touched and fixed things that could cause segmentation violations in this old code base!?)
