Description Pete 2018-10-18 12:27:05 UTC
Post install messages does not match the current version. Report-stats should be "yes/no" instead of "true/false". Running the command advised from the package results in an error.

# pkg info -D py27-matrix-synapse-
/usr/local/bin/python2.7 -B -m synapse.app.homeserver -c /usr/local/etc/matrix-synapse/homeserver.yaml --generate-config --server-name=example.com --report-stats=false

See the help output from synapse below:

# /usr/local/bin/python2.7 -B -m synapse.app.homeserver --help
 usage: homeserver.py [-h] [-c CONFIG_FILE] [--generate-config]
                     [--report-stats {yes,no}] [--generate-keys]
                     [--keys-directory DIRECTORY] [-H SERVER_NAME] [-D]
                     [--print-pidfile] [--manhole PORT]
                     [-d SQLITE_DATABASE_PATH] [-v] [-f LOG_FILE]
                     [--log-config LOG_CONFIG] [-n] [--enable-registration]

While --server-name still works, it might be prudent to update to "-H" as shown above.
Comment 1 Sascha Biberhofer 2018-11-01 14:49:27 UTC

Sorry for the delay, October has been a very busy month. I can confirm that this message is indeed outdated. There might also be more than just -H missing, as the --generate-keys option should probably be specified too if you want to generate all the necessary files. 

I'll revise this and test this to make it part of the 0.33.8 bump.

Patch to 0.33.8
Comment 3 CTS - FreeBSD Team 2018-11-07 14:03:24 UTC
I made a patch to 0.33.8 on my build server already, so i just incorporated this suggestion.

While i was there i added the devel/py-pyasn1-modules dependency and moved the sysutils/py-psutil dep to the mandatory deps (as this was done in the project's own dependency file also).

What i left out again was the update of the homeserver.yaml.in to a recent version. That's something for the winter holidays ;)

Upgrade net-im/py-matrix-synapse to 0.33.8 and update pkg messages and sample config

Phew, this took me much longer than it probably should have. 

I've checked the necessity of the config parameters. We don't need --generate-keys for the example config. Changing the parameter to -H is sufficient and adjusting the --report-stats parameter to the newer syntax is fine too. 

I've also reviewed Markus' patch, which looks fine. I've adjusted the rest of the dependencies as well (in accordance w/ the python dependencies in the synapse repo) and updated the sample config we ship to reflect the latest config synapse generates. I'd also leave the --report-stats parameter to no, because I'm not quite sure what anonymous usage statistics entail and I'd hate to step on someone's privacy.

Patch is attached and works fine for me.
Comment 5 CTS - FreeBSD Team 2018-11-15 17:18:03 UTC
I just tested Sascha's patch - worked for me too.

Upgrade py-matrix-synapse from to 0.33.9 based on Sascha's patch for 0.33.8

While we wait for the commit, the project released 0.33.9. I added a patch to the current version based on Sascha's patch for 0.33.8. Basically i just changed the version and deleted the pydenticon dependency, as the project did in this release (compared to Sascha's patch for 0.33.8).
Comment 7 Sascha Biberhofer 2018-11-30 18:32:08 UTC
Got around to testing Markus' patch, which looks good and works perfectly fine. We should get this committed before yet another synapse release happens.
