Motivation for this change
  • Bump version.
  • Drop obsolete patch.
  • Fix API changes that break ncmpc 0.36 (which was otherwise
    broken in nixpkgs at version 0.35, cf.
    #73000 (comment) )
Things done

Sandboxing was enabled during builds.

  • Built on platform(s)
    • [×] NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)

On my workstation (nixos 19.09) the tests fail with this output:

client# mpd error: Network is unreachable
client: exit status 1
client: output:
(217.64 seconds)
error: command `/nix/store/dc5xpr79li9gr0bayys0avvwzwd694j2-mpc-0.28/bin/mpc --wait -h serverALSA status' did not succeed (exit code 1)
(848.83 seconds)
command `/nix/store/dc5xpr79li9gr0bayys0avvwzwd694j2-mpc-0.28/bin/mpc --wait -h serverALSA status' did not succeed (exit code 1)

No results/log.html is generated. Obviously an error, but
the test fails just the same when I revert the commit.

  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nix-review --run "nix-review wip"

  • [×] Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)

  • [×] Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)

  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date

  • [×] Fits

Gee, there are too many of these! See #57608 and #62771

I'm cc'ing everyone involved everywhere because this is pretty annoying non of these PRs were merged:

@tobim @immae @Ekleog @aanderse @Fuuzetsu @pstch @ryantm @FRidh @timokau @peterhoeg @Mic92.

I hope some of you with merge rights will take the wheel.

I've already said back in #57608 (comment) that it was completely fine and that it can be merged.

@doronbehar With other committers far more knowledgeable than me about mpd already involved in the discussions, I'd rather not be the one to make the final decision of merging one of those PRs. Sorry for the delay! Large rewrites or changes take longer to merge, as fewer people feel qualified to review them.

That said, for now this specific PR appears to not build on ofborg, so I don't think someone will merge it in this state of affairs. The ofborg build logs includes the following, which I guess is the source of the issue. WARNING: Your Boost version 1.67 is known to be buggy, and the MPD build will fail. Please upgrade to Boost 1.68 or later.
