Apologies for the belated notice.
Gajim's license had been changed from GPLv2 to GPLv3 when Gajim 0.12
alpha1 was released. I have committed the change in CVS now which will
be available with gajim-0.12.3-1.
One reason that life is complex is that it has a real part and an

Fedora Release Enginerering is going to be starting a mass rebuild this
Thursday, July 28th, for the following Fedora 12 features:
- XZ RPM Payloads
- x86 Architecture Support
Just as in the Fedora 11 mass rebuild, if you'd like to opt out for
your packages, check a file into your package's devel/ branch, named
'noautobuild'. This file should contain a short rationale of why you
wish to do the build yourself. Note that if you do not do a rebuild
during the timeframe before Alpha, one will be done regardless of
the presence of this file.
Also note that delta RPMS will be disabled in rawhide for the duration
of this mass rebuild; delta rpms across payload format changes in
RPM are not useful.
For more information, see:
Thanks to everyone who helped pull together status last week.
Nine days remain before Fedora 12 Feature freeze. No more features can
be added after 2009-07-28.
Please do a quick check to make sure your feature page is where you
expect it to be. It is actively being tracked for Fedora 12 if it
appears in one of the following categories:
If you do you not see your feature page in any of the categories above
it is *NOT* being tracked for Fedora 12. If you need help determining
why, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Hi, we have just made some modifications to the version of cvs on
cvs.fedoraproject.org that should help to prevent ctrl-c from killing
notification mails at times. If anybody notices any breakage that
resulted from this, please let us know.
Also, if anybody has previously been able to reproduce the ctrl-c issue,
we would appreciate it if you could test and make sure that it is no
longer possible with the current setup.
Thanks a lot,
Audacious 2.1 is going to land in Rawhide soon.
src.rpm updates have been comitted to Fedora package cvs/devel already.
Compared with 1.5.1 this new final release changes the SONAME version
of essential libraries within the audacious-libs package. Dependencies
will need to be rebuilt. Plugins may need a minor update to sync with
modified plugin API structures.
It's that time of the release cycle again, to purge the orphans before
we get to feature freeze. Any unblocked orphans will be purged by the
28th of this month. Here is a current list of unblocked orphans:
Unblocked orphan ant-contrib
Unblocked orphan apollon
Unblocked orphan azureus
Unblocked orphan beagle
Unblocked orphan bes
Unblocked orphan bmake
Unblocked orphan buoh
Unblocked orphan cryptix
Unblocked orphan ctrlproxy
Unblocked orphan dap-freeform_handler
Unblocked orphan dap-hdf4_handler
Unblocked orphan dap-netcdf_handler
Unblocked orphan dap-server
Unblocked orphan drapes
Unblocked orphan dumpasn1
Unblocked orphan elsa
Unblocked orphan f-spot
Unblocked orphan fig2ps
Unblocked orphan flpsed
Unblocked orphan fmit
Taking ownership of them on the devel collection will prevent them from
being blocked. Remember, it is OK to let software die. Don't view this
as a list of things that somebody should pick up if they have the spare
time. Things should only be revived if there are actual users in need
of the software.
Fedora -- Freedom² is a feature!
The Fedora Packaging Committee has an open seat. Are you interested in
helping to decide the packaging standards and guidelines for Fedora? Are
you familiar with the inner workings of RPM and its spec file magic? Are
you clinically insane? (Well, the last one isn't mandatory, but it helps.)
Members of the Fedora Packaging Committee get:
* My neverending gratitude
* The ability to tell people "I'm on the Fedora Packaging Committee"
* Good karma
The FPC meets biweekly. In theory. (In practice, we meet less than that).
If you're interested in this seat, please email me.
This is a policy and licensing change that affects anyone who edits
the wiki or otherwise contributes to Fedora documentation.
The consensus of the Docs Team, with full Legal support, is to
relicense wiki and documentation from the deprecated OPL 1.0 to the CC
BY SA 3.0 license. This move brings Fedora on to the mainland of free
and open content; tens of millions of pieces of content and media are
licensed under the CC BY SA.
Our goal is to do the switchover in about 2 weeks (22 July).
Because of the larger number of contributors involved (thousands), it
is too much effort to contact each contributor (copyright holder) to
gain permission to relicense. Instead, we are enacting a clause of
the contributors license agreement that grants the Fedora Project
permission to relicense (sublicense.)
