[Resending due to error with previous attempt; apologies if you receive this twice...]
I'm about to push an update to Rawhide for rb_libtorrent 0.14.2; but
this update contains a soname bump: from "libtorrent-rasterbar.so.1" to
"libtorrent-rasterbar.so.2". According to repoquery, there are four
other packages in Fedora which use rb_libtorrent (maintainers CC-ed), as
✔ Deluge (which I maintain in Fedora) and Miro both use rb_libtorrent
only through its python bindings and thus should not be affected by the
✔ QBitTorrent needs only an EVR bump and rebuild for the update. A brief
test build did not reveal any errors from this soname bump, and after
that it seems to run just fine. I can take care of the bump & rebuild if
you'd like. Just let me know. :)
✘ linkage still has not been updated upstream yet to work with the
API/ABI changes from 0.13.x to 0.14.x; and also does not build with this
Please let me know if this causes any other issues, etc. Thanks.

Due to a number of Features, every package in Fedora 11 needs to be
rebuilt. Release Engineering is coordinating this effort and has
created a wiki page for it:
Please take the time to read through this wiki page, particularly the
Maintainer Actions section. The page will update as we get closer to
doing the builds if things change, or if new suggestions for maintainer
actions are made.
Fedora -- Freedom² is a feature!
Hi there Fedorans,
In September 2008, we had an excellent FUDCon in Brno (credit to the
local team there, led by Radek Vokal, who helped to make the event
happen. Feedback about FUDCon Brno was all incredibly positive, and
we'll bring FUDCon back to Brno for sure. However, the one thing that
we heard was to make sure that we move the event around Europe, to
encourage folks from all over the region to attend.
Therefore, the Fedora Project is pleased to announce that our next
Fedora Users and Developers Conference (FUDCon) will take place in
Berlin from June 26 - 28, 2009.
This year in Berlin, we are partnering with LinuxTag -- one of the
largest FOSS events in Europe -- to help make FUDCon happen this year.
LinuxTag takes place from Wednesday June 24 - Saturday June 27, and
FUDCon will take place from Friday the 26th - Sunday the 28th, meaning
that there will be two days of overlap during which a large number of
people who would otherwise never attend a FUDCon will have a chance to
see Fedora up close, and in great detail.
FUDCon will consist of:
* pre-scheduled technical and user-focused talks on Friday and
* a "BarCamp" on one of the days of the event.
* two days of hackfests, focusing on Fedora 12 and upstream projects
that are important to the Fedora Project.
* a social event.
The purpose of this message is:
(0) To give people general information about this year's event.
(1) To encourage people to pre-register for the event, because this
helps us tremendously with our planning.
We are working on a hotel deal that will allow us to have a huge block
of double rooms at a reasonable price. Please stay tuned for lodging
information regarding FUDCon.
(2) To ask that anyone who is interested in giving a talk at FUDCon sign
I think that the wiki pages are pretty clear, and I hope that this email
has been informative as well. If there are any questions about FUDCon,
or about anything related to Fedora or community activities in the EMEA
region, please don't hesitate to send me an email.
The KDE SIG has chosen to take the plunge, importing qt-4.5-rc1 into
rawhide asap, to help sort out bugs and regressions, especially those
when used with KDE-4.2.x.
So far, we're considering this only for rawhide, targeting f11. Once
we're confident that qt-4.5 provides a relative bug/regression-free
experience, then we'll entertain the idea of producing updates for
previous fedora releases as well.
Want to learn more about iSCSI? From installation to target
creation, iSCSI has been making it's way into Fedora for a few releases
now. Support for iSCSI exists in virt storage pools, scsi-target-utils
(software-based target), iscsi-initiator-utils, and in the anaconda
I invite testers to join #fedora-qa this Thursday, February 12, 2009 to
help test the iSCSI initiator and target (software and hardware based).
Come with questions and/or suggested test areas. More details will be
posted to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/Test_Days/2009-02-12.
FESCo have approved a set of maintainers guidelines for package updates
on release branches:
Many Fedora users update automatically, so it is most important that
an update doesn't cause a users' applications or system to stop
Fedora users who do not update automatically may review the
descriptions attached to updates before choosing whether they should
Package maintainers should bear in mind that not all Fedora users have
good Internet bandwidth available.
As the page says, these are not intended to be prescriptive rules.
Package maintainers are expected to to exercise their own common sense
and good judgement.
