Since the changeset committed by psykose a while ago in commit
26118d49 we now extract the
previous soname. We can pass this previous soname to
apk search -R
to figure out how many packages are linked against this old soname.
I believe this to be useful for reviewing MRs since the checkapk
output will directly tell us if a contributor has missed rebuilds.
It will also inform us when no rebuilds are necessary, e.g. if the
SONAME was changed but no packages is linked against the library.
Example output for
>>> Size difference for libsodium: 336 KiB -> 340 KiB --- filelist-libsodium-old 2023-09-22 11:24:54.799204225 +0200 +++ filelist-libsodium-new 2023-09-22 11:24:54.799204225 +0200 @@ -1,5 +1,5 @@ .PKGINFO usr/ usr/lib/ -usr/lib/libsodium.so.23 -usr/lib/libsodium.so.23.3.0 +usr/lib/libsodium.so.26 +usr/lib/libsodium.so.26.1.0 SODIFF: -usr/lib/libsodium.so.23.3.0: SONAME libsodium.so.23 +usr/lib/libsodium.so.26.1.0: SONAME libsodium.so.26 REBUILDS: *** 36 packages linked against 'libsodium.so.23' need to be rebuild!
I think this might be a good addition to the SODIFF output, this is just a suggestion though if others believe the SODIFF output to be enough then we don't need to merge this :)
