type_conv-108.07 breakage Anil Madhavapeddy 9/29/12 9:33 PM
I've been porting some of our syntax extensions to the new type_conv (from 108.00.02 -> 108.07), and the Dyntype extension is broken because of some extra bits that are generated:

For a simple:

# type t = int with value;;

This diff happens between the output of 108.00.02 and 108.07.00:

Hi Anil,

I'll take a look at the dyntype extension to see how type_conv is broken, but the point of these assignments is to avoid ocaml 4's unused value warnings by from generated code. Apparently, type_conv thinks that values called "t", "ref", "t_of_value", and "value_of_t" have been generated by this extension.
Re: type_conv-108.07 breakage Anil Madhavapeddy 10/1/12 10:23 AM
Hi Yury,

I got a little lost in the new type_conv control flow (objects, why is it always objects!), but it looks like the bug is at:

  class vars_of = object
    inherit fold as super
    val vars = []
    method vars = vars
    method ident = function
    | <:ident< $lid:v$ >> -> {< vars = v :: vars >}
    | ident -> super#ident ident
  end
  let lids_of_patt patt =
    ((new vars_of)#patt patt)#vars

This extracts out all the identifiers in a pattern binding. In the case of dyntype, we generate output like:

let (value_of_t : ?id_seed: (Int64.t ref) -> t -> Dyntype.Value.t) =
  <snip> in
   fun ?id_seed t =
     <snip>

I've simplified the Dyntype generation to be simply:

let value_of_t, value_of_foo =
   (fun ?id_seed t -> <...>), (fun ?id_seed t -> <...>)

and it works fine now. The changeset is:
https://github.com/mirage/dyntype/commit/3569269c8cad3f013151fb1b5d89cf76981f1df1
and is present in dyntype-0.9.0.

Where would you like Core bugs such as this type_conv one to be reported?  The bitbucket issue tracker?

I'd like to get a quick bugfix out the door that includes this and more portable use of mktemp in base/core/lib/discover.sh.
Re: type_conv-108.07 breakage Anil Madhavapeddy 10/1/12 10:49 AM
Great!  The workaround was pretty straightforward, so I'll leave the simpler code generation in place.

Let me know when the bugfix is out, and we'll update OPAM.  Can your release system issue only a bumped version number for Core and Type_conv, instead of a complete set of new packages with new versions? This is a good test of the constraint system, as our constraints are probably way too specific (="108.07.00").

I had a quick chat with Yaron about this at OUD.  It seems that the best
way to export changes from the JSC dev trees is via tarballs (that lose
history).  However, if we do not need patches to go *bidirectionally*, then
the Mercurial export infrastructure could be significantly simplified.

I propose something along these lines:

- JSC releases tarballs that are similar to the current ones, but with
  preX releases so we can see some changes before they're committed to
  the final release.

- These tarballs are committed by script against a Github repository of
  Core. This will lose renames if changes are made, but this can't be
  helped for now.

- Any patches or pull requests against the Github version are transformed
  into e-mail patches and sent to JSC for incorporation into a future
  version.  A Git merge will naturally resolve these.

It's not an ideal workflow as the external consumers lose all the version
history, but it would be a lot better than the current tarball/dev sync
issues.

An alternative, if JSC can keep the Bitbucket repo up-to-date more
frequently, is for us to setup a unidirectional Bitbucket->Github mirror.
In practical terms, there seems little advantage though, as the Bitbucket
repo also loses version history of changesets at present (I think).

Whatever happens, a Github repo would extremely useful to fit into other
project workflows such as http://github.com/xen-org/xen-api (where there
are autobuildbots that could work against forks and pre-release for
continuous build coverage tests).

I was under the (wrong?) impression that the bidirectional issues had
been successfully resolved with the patch queue repository.  I can
imagine that releasing the internal dev tree (Core part) via tarballs
is less work for Jane Street than pushing changes to the external dev
tree.  OTOH, it would be great if we could at least see changes in the
patch queue, even if it's just one huge blob rather than more
fine-grained patches.

For example, I don't even know which ones of my patches (if any) have
made it into the internal tree.  If JS placed a patch into the queue
such that it takes already existing, internally applied patches into
account, external developers' lives would be much easier.  If you want
to do things quickly without too much fine-grained control, you'd just
have to apply the internally applied patches to the last release and
create a new patch in the queue from the diff to the latest dev
release.

This seems neatly addressed by the patch queue.  E.g. we might have
the policy that "Jane Street patches come first in the queue" so that
external developers have to fix their patches to stay compatible with
pre-releases rather than the other way round.

This seems rather involved.  I think the fewer tools, scripts,
repositories, etc., we need to support the workflow, the better.

Has there ever been any attempt at JS to use the patch queue
repository to publish updates?  I don't see any problems with this
fairly simple approach, but your mileage may vary.

I agree; if the patchqueue approach works, then it would be simpler than
tarball exports. The Github mirror could also be auto-synched as a read
only (perhaps rebased) tree from this.

Re: type_conv-108.07 breakage Yury 10/1/12 1:57 PM
Hi Markus,

I think 108.08 will be the first version where the external tree is sync'd to our internal one. We have tarballs for 108.07, but they include portability fixes and changes for ocaml 4 compatibility that didn't make it into our internal release. So rather than export that merge point, the current plan is to wait until 108.08 and from then on maintain a patch queue between releases.
Re: type_conv-108.07 breakage Yury 10/1/12 1:58 PM
Great, The tarballs are up here: https://ocaml.janestreet.com/ocaml-core/108.07.01

Thanks!

Thanks, good to know that the development tree and patch queue are
still on the future release roadmap.

Re: type_conv-108.07 breakage Yaron Minsky 10/4/12 5:34 PM
I can't seem to get the new async to build, even in the latest opam.
By default it picks the older async, and when I pin to the latest
version, I get:

en $ opam upgrade async
No solution has been found:
 - Conflict between type_conv.108.00.02 and type_conv.108.07.01.
 + type_conv.108.07.01 <- fieldslib.108.07.01 <- core.108.07.01 <-
async_core.108.07.01 <- async.108.07.01
 + type_conv.108.00.02 <- ocaml-data-notation.0.0.9

Any thoughts on how to get this to work?

Re: type_conv-108.07 breakage Yury 10/4/12 5:40 PM
It looks like ocaml-data-notation should be upgraded to work with a
newer version of type_conv. If you're not using  oasis, can you just
remove it?

Yury
Re: type_conv-108.07 breakage Anil Madhavapeddy 10/4/12 5:45 PM
That's correct; almost all non-Core packages are broken by the
type_conv interface change. I have some patches queued up for them,
but haven't had a chance to submit them upstream yet.  Some (such
as Dyntype) I've already fixed, but I haven't done OASIS yet.

For now, a decent workaround is to switch to a compiler alias to
install OASIS, and otherwise use the new type_conv in a separate
switch.

Re: type_conv-108.07 breakage Yaron Minsky 10/4/12 8:11 PM
Is it surprising that uninstalling oasis causes a rebuild of Async and Core?

The following variables are set in your environment, you should better
unset it if you want OPAM to work correctly.

 - recompile cow.0.3.2

Re: type_conv-108.07 breakage Anil Madhavapeddy 10/4/12 9:55 PM
Well, removing OASIS should remove the constraint that should cause Async
to upgrade again.  However, the actual constraint is on ODN and not OASIS,
so I wonder if this is a transitive dependency bug...

If you uninstall ocaml-data-notation, does Core upgrade to 107.00.01?

Re: type_conv-108.07 breakage Sylvain Le Gall 10/5/12 1:54 AM
If you send the patch for ODN, you''ll have a new upstream tarball by
then end of the day.

This looks like it's trying to install COW, and not Core.  I think that
your pinning of type_conv might have confused things a little. I'll upload
a new COW and send Sylvain the ODN patches shortly, but it would be good
to understand why the package constraints aren't working as expected at
present...

Do you have COW installed also?

Not yet, give me time to adapt. If there were a way to have a forge
plugin that create a link between github and forge.ocamlcore.org, I
would more easily consider it, but until then, I will keep 2nd level
project where they are.

Jobs done, but don't have access to 108.07.01, so I let you check that
it compiles fine...
