Renaming master branch in aports.git to edge? 25 days ago

From Ariadne Conill to ~sircmpwn/alpine-devel

Hello,

With all of the discussion about github renaming their default branch from 
"master" to "main", it occured to me that the "master" branch in aports.git 
reflects Alpine's rolling release "edge" repositories.

Discussion of the semantics behind the terminology aside, I think it would be 
more transparent if we renamed "master" to "edge."  This would cause the edge 
repositories to be aligned with an obviously-named branch in aports.git, which 
seems like it would be helpful in general, verses having a special case for 
master == edge and release branches being named after their version numbers.

Thoughts?

Introducing autoconf-policy 28 days ago

From Ariadne Conill to ~sircmpwn/alpine-devel

Hello,

I have been working on a helper package[1] based on autoconf's config.site[2] 
functionality.  This package can be used to do a few things that are useful to 
the Alpine ecosystem:

* Enforcing a specific layout (e.g. FHS) in a centralized place.

Much as like how we now have abuild-meson, it is possible for us to use 
autoconf-policy to enforce a specific layout, using the CONFIG_SITE 
environmental variable.  This particular functionality is not yet enabled, as 
we need to make some changes to how builders are configured before it will work 
(declaring the CONFIG_SITE env variable, since the default CONFIG_SITE is 
$prefix/share/config.site), but once we decide to proceed it can be trivially
