Happy new year everyone. I expect/hope to be mostly offline till Jan
17th. List of packages at
Some of them do have co-maintainers but not all. Nothing big to handle
but I would appreciate if anyone can keep an eye on it. If you would
like to be a co-maintainer for any of the packages, feel free to drop me
a mail offlist.
I have pushed PostgreSQL 9.0.2 into rawhide, replacing the 8.4.x release
As is usual with PostgreSQL major version updates, 9.0.x won't read
8.4.x's database files. However, this time around there is an option
to not have to dump and reload your database: you can try pg_upgrade
instead. The details are in
but the short form is: install postgresql-upgrade and run
"service postgresql upgrade".
This isn't terribly well tested, so if you're running critical data
on rawhide (you aren't, are you?) a traditional-form backup would be
a good thing to make first.
Please let me know of either successful or unsuccessful upgrades.
regards, tom lane
I have just built a new version of wv for Rawhide which has a soname bump
Affected packages are Abiword, Beagle and Lyx. Just a heads up. I can
rebuild these packages myself later if maintainers don't get around to doing
