I have upgraded file package in rawhide to the latest version.
Unfortunately the changes the upstream made break compatibility with the
previous version. The plaintext magic file and magic.mime are not build
I added the plaintext file "manually" by concatenating the definition files
but the script that would create magic.mime is missing from the sources. I
don't know of any package that would require magic.mime but if there exist
some, please let me know.

Anyone seen anything like the following before?
extracting debug info from
Wrong directory table index 3
The last bit repeats many times; somethings the '3' is '102' instead.
This package (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=187243) is
written in pascal and built using the fpc compiler. It seems that fpc
generates some kind of debug symbols, but they're not quite in the
format that the debuginfo extraction bits understand. Is this worth a
bug report, and if so, is the bug in rpm or fpc?
At Thursday's FESCo meeting, it was decided to delay the upcoming FESCo
election since we are working on defining what FESCo's
role/responsibility will be in the future. Until this is finished, we
felt that it didn't make sense to run the election since candidates
expectations of FESCo's role might be different than what it evolves
into. We're hoping this will be resolved fairly soon, and we'll send
out an announcement on the decision and when the new election will be
held. If anyone has any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

since some days I get absolutely no updates.
Under bodhi I can see (just a simple example)
gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10.19-2.fc9 on my system there is
[choeger@choeger6 svn]$ rpm -q gstreamer-plugins-base
and yum says: no packages found.
I assume that goes for a lot of packages (including yum, gedit and
others I've had a look at).
What went wrong?
Apologies for not participating in last week's meeting: real life got
in the way... I read the #fedora-meeting logs, and thought I'd share
my views here.
I view the board as a political body, and an interface between
corporate sponsors and the Fedora project. They get to deal with money
matters, and have the final word on all Fedora matters. They can
meddle in technical matters if they so wish, but I do not think it is
their mandate. I like spot's approach of saying they tell us "we need
to fly" and provide for some level ground for us to take off. Unless
I'm mistaken, the board head is paid by RH, as is wwoods of QA and f13
of releng. These folks are incredibly useful and dedicated to get each
release off the ground.
I see FESCo as a bunch of elected volunteers that people come to and
ask "is it ok if ..." when they have questions wrt what they can put in
Fedora. FESCo's answer should have arbitration value for all technical
matters. I think FESCo members should also be willing to act as
emergency response team when some fire needs to be put out, e.g. a mass
rebuild needs some manual help to complete.
I do not think it is FESCo's role to come up with ideas of what the
future should be like. I think this kind of creativity is better
served by SIGs or individual contributors.
I agree a lot of FESCo's work is just rubber stamping propositions from
SIGs. But I think someone needs to be there to do it. As Fedora
contributor, I feel better knowing that a bunch of elected volunteers
is manning the deck at all time, watching what's going on and making
sure we are not headed straight into the iceberg.
In the past few months, the Board has scheduled a public IRC meeting on
the first meeting of the month. Because of the timing of LinuxTag last
week, however, there will not be a public Board IRC meeting on Tuesday,
June 3. We will announce the next public IRC meeting well in advance so
community members can attend if desired.
