tcz shipping delay
« on: June 17, 2023, 04:47:53 AM »
Hello, I have sent to tcesubmit@gmail.com two packages; fuse-zip and archivemount. I tried to correctly follow all the tips for sending the package, as well as the proper verification of dependencies, licenses, strip, binaries source code and etc, but I never got an email response.

I believe it was sent to the spam folder.

I've also noticed other different people complaining that packet submissions are never answered. If there is some undocumented and unclear reason (eg the package is 1kb heavier so I won't accept it. or I won't accept it because it was submitted by an unknown person who may be sending viruses) it would be good to explain so we can work on this answer, yeah It's simply impossible to resolve a question you don't know the reason for.

Hi CardealRusso
It may take a week or two for your submission to be processed.

From the link you posted:
Quote
... Submit extension:

- tar all necessary and optional files, example:
     tar cvzf rogue.tar.gz rogue/
- attach and email to tcesubmit@gmail.com
- note: encryption of the extension attachment is not required ...
I recommend encrypting the extension to prevent email providers from
flagging/blocking extensions because they looked inside the attachment
and saw something they did not like.

You can encrypt your extension like this:
Code: [Select]
bcrypt extension.tar.gzThen enter  tinycore  at the  Encryption key:  prompt.

Or you can use this one liner:
Code: [Select]
yes tinycore | bcrypt extension.tar.gz

I checked tcesubmit 2 days ago, I’ll check the spam tomorrow - if the submission wasn’t bcrypted it’s possible it didn’t even make the spam.

yes i indeed forgot to bcrypt the files
however the files were not detected by google's anti-virus, since, if it were, I myself would be warned that the email I sent contained a virus, however the message sent only states that the file was scanned.
https://support.google.com/mail/answer/25760?hl=en#zippy=%2Cvirus-in-an-email-sent-to-you%2Cvirus-in-an-email-youre-sending

So I assume it went to the spam box or was never read.
In fact, according to the google article mentioned, the file is scanned before the email is sent, when it is attached in the draft, so it would never be supposedly sent if it found any problems.

I am guilty of that...but I think I can remember someone like bmarkus or similar statue saying no longer required.

Another way to submit is upload your tarball to a host site and email the link?

This is sometimes useful as gmail has an attachment limit of sending of 25Mb

Hi aus9
Email providers are quite capable of looking inside .zip, .rar, .bz, .gz, etc
files to examine the source code and .tcz files.

When examining the source code, variable and function names as well
as programming language syntax can trigger the spam filter.

When examining the  .tcz  file, regardless of whether it knows how to look
inside it, there is always the possibility of a false positive on the virus scan.

Hi Juanito. I submitted over 10 extensions almost 2 weeks ago and still none have been verified.

Hi Juanito. I sent an update to libaom but the message was ignored because "Message may contain a virus". Could you check over here?

Hello,

This must satisfy all requirements; Contains Sourcetarball and a buildscript. These should replace aom.tcz and aom-dev.tcz

For TinyCore 14.x x64 only
The .tcz files have not been modified from the buildscript, you can replicate them yourself.

Try running  bcrypt  using password  tinycore  on your update before emailing it:
Code: [Select]
yes tinycore | bcrypt libaom.tar.gz

Hi CardealRusso

I assume you are using a gmail account....and your link suggests that if you are the sender then
Quote
If an attachment you're trying to attach is infected with a virus, you'll see a "Virus detected!" error message. You'll see the option to send the email without the attachment.

I can confirm that I attempted to send an unencypted attachment via yahoo.
Yahoo acts different to gmail but gives me  a better response.
I got a mailer daemon error saying mail was not delivered due to a scan suggesting I was sending a virus etc.
I can not remember the exact wording and I had deleted that post.
So Yahoo blocked the mail being sent and I am suggesting that is what happened to you

Hello. Yes, Bcrypt solves that, I forgot.

No such email received in the inbox or spam...
could look at libaom-dev.tcz (in the repository) it has problems in the directories, because it is without the "usr" folder. While the tcz I sent didn't have this problem.

I assume you are using a gmail account....
yes
bcrypt should do the trick.

Juanito, please check the tce email. I've uploaded many interesting packages (and error alerts), including a fltk wrapper for lua.  :D Everything was compiled into tinycore itself (I only use it) and includes the build scripts correctly.
