There's an old expression: When the going gets tough; the tough get going.
The hardcore Fedora guys here at RH have been as tough, determined,
hard-working and resilient as I have ever seen. It is a privilege to
work among them. They didn't ask for a week of grief. They didn't
deserve a week of grief. This burden was inflicted on them through no
fault of their own. Through it all they have risen to the occasion and
gone well beyond. In addition, they have at all times had the interests
and spirit of the community front and center.
Because this is an ongoing investigation I am unable to articulate their
individual heroics in detail. If you have been lucky enough to meet any
of them at Fudcon, OLS, a local LUG meeting or online, you know who I'm
talking about. You know the magic they perform. We at Red Hat are proud
of every one of them. We stand behind them shoulder to shoulder 100%.
Inside the walls of Red Hat, the word "heroes" has almost never been
used. Glad we saved it for these guys.
In deep admiration
Tim Burke, Director Linux Development ,
I'm afraid, Krzysztof Kurzawski is AWOL. I have tried repetitively to
contact him in
because daypanner-0.8.1 crashes on F-9 and above. In order to fix this
bug i updated to 0.9.1.
Krzysztof owns the following packages:
* dayplanner -- An easy and clean Day Planner
* gfeed -- RSS feed reader
* greyhounds -- Greyhounds is a greyhounds racing and breeding
* incollector -- Information collector
* jabbin -- Instant messaging and VoIP Jabber client
* netmonitor -- The free linux network bandwidth monitor
* pic2aa -- Pic2AA is tool for converting jpeg/png to AA (Ascii
* scythia -- Just a small ftp client
* taskcoach -- Your friendly task manager
* wavextract -- Program for extracting embedded audio data from
* xhotkeys -- Hotkeys for the X-Window
* yoltia -- Qt based picture editing program
* youtube-dl -- Small command-line program to download videos from
If nobody volunteers I'm willing to pick up dayplanner, although I'm not
a perl expert.
If anybody knows how to contact Krzysztof, please let us know.
Krzysztof, please respond to this mail or to bug 446883 within 2 weeks,
otherwise you are considered missing in action and your packages will
need to be orphaned.
Sorry to chime in with another "is it working yet?" question, but I
I put in a CVS request a day or two before the whole recent mess
occurred. The cvs request was just granted (last night), but now it
tells me that I'm not on the ACL for the package (ocaml-ocamlgraph).
The pkgdb system (through the web interface) claims that I actually
am. I changed my RSA key, user cert, and CA certs beforehand
(yesterday), so I don't think there's an issue with not waiting long
enough for something to process. I can also use Koji (at least for
scratch builds, which is how I tested this) just fine. Am I forgetting
something? Are others experiencing something similar?
I'm orphaning Linphone and some related packages because I no longer
have any interest in it and I'd prefer to concentrate my attention on
the rest of my packages as well as the work I've been doing for Fedora
Infrastructure. The packages are already orphaned in the package
database so first come first serve. Here's the complete list of
"You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then
I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the
terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve
them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and
unfairness of the universe."

SO i have played.
I installed newest kernel from rawhide repo (yum install kernel
--enablerepo=rawhide). What is good, that i did not have complains
about ACPI during boot process.
What is not good, that it still does not work . (during resume from
hibernate laptop will reset and then boot normaly :( ).
I am pretty sure it was working for me before. What i have installed
since then is radeonhd driver (x11) , and alsa-driver from atrpms. I
removed both but it did not helped.
Please help me :(

There's been some problems with the PackageDB both before and after our
recent rebuild of all the boxes. I believe I've fixed all the pkgpage
bugs that have been reported. If you've been looking to orphan/unorphan
a package or set/unset the flag to open the acls to uberpackager, go try
it out and make sure my fixes really work!
* Checkbox to open acls to uberpackager group was checked anytime the
page was reloaded.
* Error when orphaning or taking ownership of a package.
* Unable to approve acls on a package.
following Dennis Gilmore's announcement, I downloaded the cert,
repackaged, installed it in the browser, but koji.fedoraproject.org only
shows an apache test page. Does it mean, I'll have to repeat the process
once Koji's web interfaces is back up? Should I have waited to do this later?
(a bit fuzzy) Victor
I haven't subscribed to fedora-announce, because I'm subscribed to
fedora-devel, and it seems that common practice is to post announcements
to both lists.
However, there are currently a bunch of infra-structure announcements
being sent only to the announce list.
Is there any policy on whether things should or should-not be posted to
both places? Is it expected that people also subscribe to the announce
list in order to see everything?
Ok; I can submit builds, but this failed for me and I don't know why, here's the log
