Debug symbols for security updates

Postby jcross » 2021-02-19 13:56

I'm not sure there is much of a solution for this, but I thought I'd ask.

If I have an apt sources.list that includes:
http://deb.debian.org/debian
http://deb.debian.org/debian-debug
http://security.debian.org/debian-security

I sometimes run into a situation where security.debian.org has a new version of a package, but deb.debian.org/debian-debug has no debug symbols available for it.

For example, https://www.debian.org/security/2021/dsa-4856 caused a version mismatch for php-fpm-dbgsym from http://deb.debian.org/debian-debug and a version of php-fpm from http://security.debian.org/debian-security.

Is there some repository that houses automatically generated debug symbol packages for security updates from http://security.debian.org/debian-security? I somewhat doubt it, given the urgency in a security update. I'd likely need to instrument the debug symbol build myself from source.

Otherwise, is there a way to pin my package version to whatever debug symbol package is available? Although, even if this approach did work, it would seem to nullify the purpose of having the security update repository listed in my sources.list, since any given security update will mismatch the debug symbols and therefore be discarded.
