The Analysis ¶
Update 2022-01-24: The provided build instructions don’t work anymore as explained in this issue.
Update 2021-07-20: The provider appears to be working on a re-write of the app, so the former issue is not expected to get resolved on the old repository.
Here we test if the latest version can be verified, following the known procedure expressed in our test script (?):
fatal: Remote branch v1.4.2 not found in upstream origin
The provider failed to tag a revision with the latest version and the app therefore is not verifiable.
We encountered a build error while compiling from source code!
As part of our Methodology, we ask:Can the product be built from the source provided? If not, we tag it Build Error!
Published code doesn’t help much if the app fails to compile.
We try to compile the published source code using the published build instructions into a binary. If that fails, we might try to work around issues but if we consistently fail to build the app, we give it this verdict and open an issue in the issue tracker of the provider to hopefully verify their app later.
