Initially copied verbatim from #5488. --ilovezfs (29 Oct 2016)

Jenkins finally managed to chew through the daunting Sierra build queue. Below are the remaining ones that defied (not necessarily only) Sierra for one reason or another.

The list is generated with the script You can also pass a blacklist to the script to get a more workable list (e.g., putting qt and qt5 in the blacklist blocks the entire Qt tree). See need-bottle -h.

* means the formula now has an :el_capitan_or_later bottle but not a :sierra bottle yet.

Formulae that made the top 5000 install events chart during September 2016, ordered by popularity:

  • fb-adb (removed in 9a4a8e6)
  • ctorrent (redefinition of clockid_t)
  • open-zwave (Homebrew/brew#1801)
  • libgroove (redefinition of clockid_t and clock_gettime; also fails on El Capitan)
  • vice (#8621)
  • libfaketime (#18249)
  • dshb (beltex/dshb#36)
  • libbladerf (redefinition of clockid_t)
  • darkstat (redefinition of clockid_t)
  • valgrind (#14653)

Obscure formulae that didn't make the top 5000 install events chart (some of these need to be thrown into boneyard — no mercy for the weak):

  • aiccu
  • blucat
  • buildapp
  • compface
  • dsd (#8590)
  • intercal (#8591)
  • jxrlib (#8608)
  • libodfgen
  • mimms (#8594)
  • nordugrid-arc
  • parrot (Homebrew/brew#1801)
  • qpm (#8593)
  • qtplay (#8614)
  • rdate (#8611)
  • saldl (10.12: error: pointer is missing a nullability type specifier; 10.11: error: implicit declaration of function 'clock_gettime' is invalid in C99 and error: use of undeclared identifier 'CLOCK_MONOTONIC_RAW')

I have refreshed the lists here and moved the incomplete ones to the top. Great work so far everyone who has contributed to making progress on Sierra support.

Quick status update. From the original lists the following still need to be bottled for Sierra:

Popular list:
fb-adb, ctorrent, open-zwave, libgroove, vice, libfaketime, dshb, libbladerf, darkstat, valgrind

Less popular list:
aiccu, blucat, buildapp, compface, dsd, intercal, jxrlib, libodfgen, mimms, nordugrid-arc, parrot, qpm, qtplay, rdate, saldl

Great, we might have a chance of being able to close this by the time the 10.13 warning is added to brew.

libodfgen builds fine on my side and the test passes.

This is superseded by the equivalent for High Sierra.

Thanks to everyone who helped here ❤️ and especially to @zmwangx, who created the original one #5488.
