Hello, I'm going to orphan ds9 (an image viewer used in astronomy and
Orion Poplawski has expressed interest in taking ds9, so if there were
anyone else interested please coordinate with him.
Caveat emptor: tkimg has problems with bundled libraries
wireless-tools is deprecated since time ago. iw/rfkill
should be used instead it.
these packages still depend on it:
«Allá muevan feroz guerra, ciegos reyes por un palmo más de tierra;
que yo aquí tengo por mío cuanto abarca el mar bravío, a quien nadie
impuso leyes. Y no hay playa, sea cualquiera, ni bandera de esplendor,
que no sienta mi derecho y dé pecho a mi valor.»

I'm Tim Bielawa, I work at Red Hat (as of Jan. 10 this year) and have
been working in IT in some kind of sysadmin type role for the last 4
Package maintenance isn't a new concept to me as it was a major focus
point in my last role. In the past, when I worked with more Ubuntu
systems I even started down the road to being a MOTU.
Working with OSS projects is something I've been involved with for a
while. I kept track of most of my prior contributions online if you want
to check it out: http://www.tbielawa.com/opensource/
I just submitted a package review ticket on bugzilla if some one would
be so kind as to look at it . The package is of a program called
Taboot. In brief, it's for scripted sysadminning using Func.
I'm the upstream maintainer, so you can rest assured that close contact
will be maintained. This is a program we depend on daily in my working
group so it will continue be receive updates.
I'm looking forward to making more future contribution!

My name's Theodore Lee (also known as 'antiaircraft', for some odd
reason lost long ago in the mists of time). I'm a Malaysian university
student currently studying robotic engineering (not doing too well there
I'm afraid, due to spending far too much time tinkering with computers),
as well as a long-time Linux user, slightly less long-time Fedora user,
enthusiastic but inexperienced programmer, and generally obstinate FOSS
advocate. Hopefully I'll soon be a Fedora package maintainer too. =)
I'm not completely new to the FOSS scene, having been a user of various
free software projects for many years now. In that time I've done odd
bits of testing, filing bug reports, submitting (very) minor patches,
and similar stuff across various projects. I've also written a few
pieces of software of my own, for personal use and for a few websites I
help to run, although none of this software is really anything noteworthy.
After I started using Fedora I started putting together RPMs for various
bits and bobs (mainly bleeding edge versions of existing packages), and
eventually I realised that I might as well start doing this seriously
and help out others as well.
This is my first time contributing seriously to a free software project,
and I hope being new won't make me /too/ useless. =P
I currently have two review requests pending (one filed a few months back).
gst-entrans is a handy tool for constructing GStreamer pipelines:
php-pecl-yaml is a PHP wrapper for LibYAML:
Any feedback would be very much appreciated (sponsorship too, of course
You can find me at this email address (theo148(a)gmail.com), and as
antiaircraft on FAS and Freenode (although I'm not on IRC much).
I look forward to helping to develop Fedora!
I am trying to package forked-daapd and it depends on libevent 1.4.13.
When asking forked-daapd's maintainer about the compatibility with
libevent2, I've got this into reply:
libevent2 is not and will not be supported; you need to use
Which I guess means either I'd have to package libevent1 for Fedora
(which seems to be PITA ... files have same names etc.), or patch
forked-daapd to use libevent2 and maintain the patch.
What's so horrible about libevent2 that the upstream author won't
support it? Is it that difficult to make and maintain the patch for
Non-building experiemntal draft of the package is at
need also avl package from -testing to build it).
