./sysutils/crashme, Try to crash machine by executing random data as instructions

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.4, Package name: crashme-2.4, Maintainer: agc

A bit of background on crashme. It is a tool for testing the robustness
of an operating environment using a technique of "Random Input" response
analysis. This I first saw formally proposed in the book Cybernetics
by Norbert Wiener, but which any parent who has observed his children
playing and learning would be well disposed to describe in detail.

* The operating environment under consideration is the user-mode process.

* The Random Input is provided by the execution of a sequence of pseudo-random
data as an instruction stream.

* The response analysis is to catch and record machine and software
generated exceptions/errors/signals and to retry using new random data
in both the current user-mode process and in newly created subprocesses.

Log message:
all: migrate homepages from http to https

pkglint -r --network --only "migrate"

As a side-effect of migrating the homepages, pkglint also fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines. These and the new homepages have been
checked manually.

Log message:
sysutils: align variable assignments

pkglint -Wall -F --only aligned --only indent -r

Manually excluded consolekit and dc-tools since pkglint didn't get the
formatting correct.

Log message:
Sort PLIST files.

Unsorted entries in PLIST files have generated a pkglint warning for at
least 12 years. Somewhat more recently, pkglint has learned to sort
PLIST files automatically. Since pkglint 5.4.23, the sorting is only
done in obvious, simple cases. These have been applied by running:

  pkglint -Cnone,PLIST -Wnone,plist-sort -r -F

Log message:
Cleaned up PLIST files.

The actual cleanup has been done by pkglint:
* Added missing identifier comments
* Replaced ${PKGMANDIR} with a simple man, since the infrastructure does
  all the magic for PLISTs
