I don't know when the 3 suffix was added. It may have been due to versioning at some time but if I recall correctly we keep the 3 suffix to avoid a name class with with the other nss package (name switch service I believe). Bob or Kai can set me straight on this matter.
Another thing that puzzles me if that this is a problem on F-13 but not on F-12. See comments in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=596840

It's due to the fact that nss-softokn-freebl (actually, *all* the nss/nspr
libraires) do not fit the normal library naming, so it's not explicitly pulled for
multilib. For any update or release set that's composed with a package that explicitly
requires a compat arch of nss-softokn-freebl (such as glibc, libpurple,
pam_pkcs11, etc.), it will get pulled in via dependency resolution. F-13
updates has none of these, so it doesn't.
We could add some hacks to mash to get it pulled in, but I must ask...
why do all the NSS/NSPR libraries version their libraries in the library
name instead of the so version (i.e., libfreebl3.so instead of

Let me introduce a project for finding and downloading Linux software
The project provides next features:
* Large, daily updated database with RPM and DEB packages for
well-known repositories of the Fedora, CentOS, RHEL, Debian, Ubuntu
and OpenSuse distributions.
* Packages browser by distribution, repository, packages group with
the filtering support.
* Detailed packages information (name, version, description,
architecture, files, requires, etc.).
* Detailed packages statistics by project, distribution, repository
and packages group.
* HTTP/FTP/RSYNC mirrors lists for the packages downloading.
* Packages search by name, summary, description, requires, provides,
files and directories.
* URL shortcuts for the direct packages search.
* Multilanguage interface.
* Effective site navigation.
* XHTML/CSS markup.
The project is still under the development.
All bugs, suggestions and comments please write to the forum

With best regards,
It seems that deltarpms aren't being kept from one push to another for
Fedora 13 (and, also it seems, Fedora 11). For example, there's an
openoffice update, but though there were deltarpms when it first came
out, they've gone now. Where should I report the bug?
Event: Fedora Bug Triage Meeting
Time: 15:00 UTC
Location: #fedora-meeting on irc.freenode.net
We haven't had a meeting for a while, so let's go for it today! Don't
have anything particular on the agenda, though. If anyone has a topic
they'd like to discuss, please reply to this email to flag it up. We
have some new members since the last meeting, it'd be great to see you
new members there so we can welcome you. That's 'welcome' as in 'give
you work' =)
Additions or corrections to the agenda? Reply to this email.
= Agenda =
* follow ups
* open floor
Please do come out for the meeting - it'd be great to see more faces,
and we don't bite, we promise! It's a great opportunity to raise any
issues you've come across while bugzapping, or ask any questions you
might have. See you there!

I downloaded DAG's EL5 x86_64 RPM for zsync from
and installed on x86_64 F13. There were no extra dependencies required,
so I just used rpm -Uvh to install. It seems to work fine. Would it be
acceptable to use a third-party version such as this to produce and post
.zsync files when a new TC/RC is available? Having zsync would allow
testers to generate the install CD set from the install DVD without
significant extra downloading, meaning more testing for split media. I
wrote a simple howto on using rsync for this:
and the same procedure would work using zsync, if it was available for
test releases. Right now it can only be used for what's on the main
mirrors (Alpha, Beta, Final), since some of those provide rsync.
