Change Logs

Version: 4.9.0-bp153.2.3.1
* Tue Jan 11 2022 Matthias Gerstner <>
- update to Factory version to fix CVE-2022-21944.
- drop fallthrough.diff: no longer needed with the new version.
* Mon Jan 10 2022 Matthias Gerstner <>
- ship README.suse that explains how to use the template systemd units
- add user writable bit for systemd service and socket files
- properly handle state directory creation in /run/watchman/$USER-state. The
  former approach was susceptible to a local privilege escalation using
  symlinks (CVE-2022-21944, bsc#1194470).
* Wed Jan 05 2022 Johannes Segitz <>
- Added hardening to systemd service(s) (bsc#1181400). Modified:
  * watchman@.service
* Tue Jun 02 2020 Matthias Gerstner <>
- add libart-gcc10.patch: this fixes the build using gcc-10. There's not
  readily available upstream release with fixes yet (there are releases but
  the look automatic and don't contain generated autotools files).
* Thu Jan 23 2020
- add Conflicts to fix
  found conflict of python3-watchman-1.4.0-20.1.x86_64 with watchman-python-1.3.0-3.6.x86_64
* Wed Jan 22 2020 Ond?ej Súkup <>
- spec-cleaned
- removed python2 bindings
- enabled python3 bindings as python3-watchman
* Tue Jun 12 2018
- watchman_4.7.0_makefile-am.diff: dropped, included in tarball by now
- 0001-Replaced-memset-calls-with-appopriate-C-11-init-or-a.patch: fix invalid
  raw memory accesses of non-POD objects, fixes ppc build.
- 0002-Re-worked-replacement-of-memset-with-proper-init-to-.patch: fix
  compiler errors introduced by the above patch ...
- update to version 4.9.0:
  - Changes in 4.8.0:
  * New command `flush-subscriptions` to synchronize subscriptions associated
    with the current session.
  * Enforce socket Unix groups more strongly — Watchman will now refuse to start
    if it couldn't gain the right group memberships, as can happen for sites that
    are experiencing intermittent LDAP connectivity problems.
  * pywatchman now officially supports Python 3. pywatchman will return Unicode
    strings (possibly with surrogate escapes) by default, but can optionally return
    bytestrings. Note that on Python 3, pywatchman requires Watchman 4.8 and above.
    The Python 2 interface and requirements remain unchanged.
  * Prior to 4.8, methods on the Java WatchmanClient that returned
    ListenableFutures would swallow exceptions and hang in an unfinished state
    under situations like socket closure or thread death.  This has been fixed, and
    now ListenableFutures propagate exception conditions immediately.  (Note that
    this is typically unrecoverable, and users should create a new WatchmanClient
    to re-establish communication with Watchman.)  See #412.
  * The minimum Java version for the Watchman Java client has always been 1.7,
    but it was incorrectly described to be 1.6.  The Java client's build file has
    been fixed accordingly.
  * Watchman was converted from C to C++.  The conversion exposed several
    concurrency bugs, all of which have now been fixed.
  * Subscription queries are now executed in the context of the client thread,
    which means that subscriptions are dispatched in parallel.  Previously,
    subscriptions would be serially dispatched and block the disk IO thread.
  * Triggers are now dispatched in parallel and waits are managed in their own
    threads (one thread per trigger).  This improves concurrency and resolves a
    couple of waitpid related issues where watchman may not reap spawned children
    in a timely fashion, or may spin on CPU until another child is spawned.
  * Fixed an object lifecycle management issue that could cause a crash when
    aging out old/transient files.
  * Implement an upgraded wire protocol, BSERv2, on the server and in pywatchman.
    BSERv2 can carry information about string encoding over the wire. This lets
    pywatchman convert to Unicode strings on Python 3. Clients and servers know how
    to  transparently fall back to BSERv1.
  - Changes in 4.9.0:
  * New field: `content.sha1hex`.  This field expands to the SHA1 hash of
    the file contents, expressed in hex digits (40 character hex string).
    Watchman maintains a cache of the content hashes and can compute the
    hash on demand and also heuristically as files are changed.  This is
    useful for tooling that wants to perform more intelligent cache invalidation
    or build artifact fetching from content addressed storage.
  * Fixed an issue that resulted in the perf logging thread deadlocking when
    `perf_logger_command` is enabled in the global configuration
  * Fixed an issue where queries larger than 1MB would likely result in
    a PDU error response.
  * Reduced lock contention for subscriptions that do no use the advanced
    settling (`drop`, `defer`) options.
  * Fixed `since` generator behavior when using unix timestamps rather than
    the preferred clock string syntax
  * Improved the reporting of "new" files in watchman results
  * Improved performance of handling changes on case insensitive filesystems
  * pywatchman: the python wheel format is used for publishing watchman pypi package
  * pywatchman: now watchman path is configurable in python client
  * pywatchman: now python client can be used as a context manager
